Fresh allegations over Klay

2009-12-21 07:35
Cape Town - "Everything that's important to Robbie (Klay)", including his singing career, is at risk of "crashing down around him".

This is what Klay's legal advisor, Koos van Rensburg, had to say after new "false allegations" about Klay were sent into the world on Sunday.

According to these rumours, which also reached Die Burger anonymously, Klay and a wealthy businessman - who took pity on Klay when the allegations that Klay had been sexually molested became public last year - had a sexual relationship.

The man is married and the father of two children. He's 39 years old. He took pity on Klay because he too had been molested as a young boy. Van Rensburg described him as a "true gentleman, a sincere and honest person with integrity".

Klay, his benefactor, Van Rensburg, and Klay's girlfriend Laetitia Bouwer, have dismissed the anonymous allegations - by someone who describes him - or herself as a "close family member of Laetitia" - as "nonsense".

Van Rensburg said the benefactor who's helping Klay pay his legal fees related to his court proceedings where the singer Jurie Els was involved, is providing the financial help on condition that he remains anonymous.

"I'll know within the next 48 hours whether he (the benefactor) will withdraw his help from Robbie due to Sunday's reports in the Sondag publication. Should he do so, there will obviously be no money to carry on with Robbie's civil claim against Jurie.

"As the situation is right now, there's a good chance that Robbie's whole life is going to come crashing down around him. That includes his singing career."

On Sunday Klay and Bouwer were doing Christmas shopping when Die Burger phoned him. "Sunday's reports are lies," he said.
