TV producer attacked by jealous lover

2012-09-12 12:36

Johannesburg - The SuperSport producer who was assaulted at Vodacom Park in Bloemfontein over the weekend was allegedly with another man's girlfriend when he was attacked, according to a report on Wednesday.

Bloemfontein businessman Andre Knipe, 48, appeared briefly in the Bloemfontein Magistrate's Court on Tuesday in connection with the alleged assault of Jacques van Schalkwyk, 44.

Van Schalkwyk was the producer of the outside broadcast of the match between the Cheetahs and Western Province on Saturday.

According to Beeld, Knipe's girlfriend disappeared after the match while they were socialising in one of the suites at the stadium.

When Knipe asked a security guard if he had seen his girlfriend, he was told that "they" were in the toilet for the disabled.

Knipe reportedly found his girlfriend in the toilet with Van Schalkwyk, after which an argument and a physical altercation ensued.

A spokesperson for the Rosepark Hospital in Bloemfontein, Esmarie Cronje, said Van Schalkwyk was in a satisfactory condition after undergoing surgery to repair a torn bladder.

Cronje said Van Schalkwyk had made it clear that he did not want to talk about the incident - "not today, not tomorrow, never".

On Monday, Beeld quoted Van Schalkwyk as saying he could not remember much about the attack, and did not see his assailant.

"The guy appeared out of nowhere and attacked me," he reportedly said.

    I guess if you're going to take another man's girlfriend into a public toilet it's not for a prayer meeting so perhaps he should accept the beating like a man. Mind you, it was a toilet for the disabled so maybe they were in there praying for healing.........

      It is high time we get lockers for our partners' private parts. We extensively build high walls to protect our assets and loved ones, why not go a little extra mile and protect your "prized possession" that you can even kill for.

    Sorry, should not laugh. But should people of their age not know any better?

      deon.louw.7505 - 2012-09-12 13:02

      Ha Ha, I once told a Prof of an old woman of 72, he nearly had a coronory as he was a "young" 74 and still running marathons. Age is only a number.

      Correct, they should be telling their kids "set her free, if she comes back its yours, if not, then she was not yours in the 1st place"

    Jealousy can be related to lack of trust...if your partner does not trust you, I advice you to dump him. however, this goes both ways, if you give him a reason not to trust you the he/she must dump you.

  • Sylvester.Mohloli - 2012-09-12 13:03

    Oh well, she is easy, he is aggressive, nice match....

  • fiat1 - 2012-09-12 13:08

    Dear Mr van Schalkwyk its guilt that makes you to shut up!!! Hey and you two love birds a toilet is there to sh*t in not to cause Sh*t!!!

      sandra.j.rennie - 2012-09-12 16:17

      fiat1 - your post is so funny, witty and hysterical - I just love it!

  • hans.himmler.7 - 2012-09-12 13:22

    Girlfriend is a loose term, not to say she is loose. Could be fair game to an extend, but so is the fight.

  • rscoetzee - 2012-09-12 13:22

    Come on people. Clearly she was tying his shoes. I mean, such matters require privacy

      kingdom.ndlovu.1 - 2012-09-12 14:54

      maybe he was showing her his disabled schlong in the disabled toilets...

  • Msika - 2012-09-12 13:26

    Just another proof that, they should never bring "Cheeters" in SA.

  • diana.gill.18 - 2012-09-12 13:30

    Wooo stinks! A girlfriend is a cheap sl@t. Whatever the circumstances might be a woman who respects herself would never go to take a bang in a toilet cabin. Never mind her boyfriend hasnt been dismissed yet. While a man (i mean a real man) would never allow himself to touch someone's woman. Herself and mr. producer deserve each other.

    Bloemfontein O Bloemfontein What else is there to do if you dont drink and dont like sheep?

  • peter.veerapen - 2012-09-12 13:45

    Sorry for making,"hole" of this situation but I just can't resist. So can anyone tell me, What was he supposed to produce? A rugby match, a boxing match or a porn? Will my subscription to DSTV increase because they are expanding their productions? these are just some of the questions I have on this matter?

  • carl.lutzer.3 - 2012-09-12 13:45

    Sport and sports does not mix well , mr van schalkwyk aka the man that will be sharing the kennel with his dog for a while ....

  • fdalana - 2012-09-12 13:57

    Bladder punctured? Oohps! Its gonna be @least 18months tha he uses a 'disabled toilet' with a befiting status.Not even being able to bang his own 'real partner'.

      peter.walters.1238 - 2012-09-12 15:53

      You are right - I wonder if he is married ? I am not surprised he is claiming memory loss.

  • michael.barns.1 - 2012-09-12 14:16

    And so the lies unravel.... like sand through an hourglass.. haha

  • sharon.s.cupido - 2012-09-12 14:26

  • arthur.marks.754 - 2012-09-12 14:38

    Ah! come on guys, after all he is just being himself . . . a "sportsman" and Knippie must find himself new partner. Van, get well soon so you can continue the sports show whether it's on or off the field.

  • sibs.dlamini.1 - 2012-09-12 15:05

    A torn bladder, geez! What kind of beating did this guy collect?

  • gregory.jurgens - 2012-09-12 15:28

    Sounds like he deserved getting his ass whipped.

      peter.walters.1238 - 2012-09-12 15:49

      Should have blixemed him some more, and given the skank a bitch slap of note.

      rodney.louis.7 - 2012-09-12 16:10

      Hope all the would be cheaters take note! it could happen to you next

  • diana.gill.18 - 2012-09-12 17:04

    Torn bladder? Just dont tell me that he's locked himself together with that little sh@t because he just wanted to take a leak.

  • martin.jansen.5437 - 2012-09-12 17:16

    Wonder if he scored a trie? He got a penalty, that's for sure!

    I have kown Jacques van Schalwyk for many years. These accusations are the biggist rubish I have ever read. Jacaques is a total professional and would not jeopardise his career or reputation with a slezzy 5 minute thrill in toilet. He is a devoted husband and a very proud father and would not embarrass his family or Super Sport with this kind of behaviour. The police investigation will prove that this is a pack of lies.

  • derrick.radebe.9 - 2012-09-12 20:59

    What a blooper. He should be on disciplinary. Bringing the good name of Supersport into disrepute.

  • andrew.worrall.5 - 2012-09-12 22:16

    In the disabled toilet? Was it the Paralympics?

  • eric.f.moloi - 2012-09-13 03:06

    Hunky punky in de loo

  • mariska.stephens - 2012-09-13 03:52

    Rotfl... I'm sure his torn bladder is nothing compared to the knock his ego must have taken!!
