Johannesburg - The stripper known for the Joost van der Westhuizen "sex video", has been arrested for being in possession of the drug commonly known as ‘Cat’, Beeld reported on Tuesday.

Marilize van Emmenis, 29, spent Monday night in the police cells at Kameeldrift police station in Pretoria, according to the report.

She was arrested at her house in Montana around 14:00 after half a bag of the drug was allegedly found in her possession.

Police spokesperson Mirna von Benecke confirmed an arrest to Beeld but would not name the woman.

She would appear in the Pretoria North Magistrate's Court on Tuesday.

Van Emmenis was involved in the so-called Joost sex video in 2006, which showed the former Springbok captain snorting white powder with her.

He lost his job as SuperSport presenter as a result and his marriage was jeopardised.

Van Emmenis later said it was a mistake to make the video and leak it to the media.
