DJ Euphonik faces assault charges

2012-06-07 09:52

DJ Euphonik is due in court after his ex-girlfriend, SABC1 Live presenter Bonang Matheba, laid three charges of assault against him.

Euphonik, who is facing the charges of assault with intent to do grievous bodily harm, domestic violence and malicious damage to property, reportedly handed himself over to police yesterday.

He was released on R3 000 bail and is due to appear in the Randburg Magistrates’ Court today, reports the Sowetan.

Sunday World reported on Sunday that Euphonik and Matheba were involved in a domestic dispute, after which Matheba laid criminal charges and obtained a protection order against him.

Euphonik has denied the charges and on Sunday released a statement condemning domestic violence against women, saying: “I was shocked to see the allegations of assault levelled against me in the tabloids. Those allegations are not true and I am seeking legal advice to clear my name.”

Matheba’s spokesperson, Simphiwe Majola, has declined to comment because “this matter is pending before the courts”.
