Johannesburg - Tokyo Sexwale's divorce got a whole lot messier at the weekend after claims he tried to blackmail wife Judy with hardcore porn claims, the Sunday Times reported.

Divorce lawyer Beverley Clark says her client, Judy Sexwale, "now had no choice" but to bring an urgent application for an interdict against her husband.

According to Clark, the human settlements minister informed a family friend on Monday that he had found a "damning series of e-mails" that he said had been exchanged between his wife and a personal security assistant, featuring illegal hardcore pornography.

He's said to have repeated the story to a second family friend - this time showing him "evidence" he claimed to have found in e-mails.

"In my and Mrs Sexwale's view, and consistent with past conduct, Mr Sexwale is trying to blackmail Mrs Sexwale and to pressurise (sic) her to back down in the divorce proceedings.

Tokyo Sexwale's lawyer, Billy Gundelfinger, reportedly told Clark that his client had "no intention to blackmail" his wife of 20 years.
