The controversial radio DJ kept his head down when he appeared in the Randburg Magistrate’s Court earlier today – but social media paints a different picture of Darren Scott.

The controversial radio DJ kept his head down when he appeared in the Randburg Magistrate’s Court earlier today – but social media paints a different picture of Darren Scott.

The former SuperSport presenter appeared in court for the first time in connection with a civil claim his former friend and business partner, Anthony Duke, brought against him over R1,125 million he owes Anthony.

But now it looks as if their relationship has soured even further. Darren has taken to Facebook to vent about Anthony, and reportedly even sent him threatening messages.

“Anthony Duke, you’ve spent the past five years trying to convince people that we were friends, reads the irate message. "Because I let you stay at my house when no-one else could bear your dope smoking and drug habit, doesn't make you a friend.

"And when you tried to grope my wife when I wasn't watching; that should tell you why you were never welcome at my house again,” Darren wrote on his Facebook page.

Geniv Wulz, Anthony’s regal representative, says Anthony would never do anything like that.

“It’s inconceivable that my client would be capable of doing such a thing,” she says.

Wulz showed YOU text messages Darren sent Anthony on the day of the Facebook post.

“Sh*t just got real,” he wrote in one of the text messages.

“Watch your back you fu**ing weasel. You don’t know who you’re fu**ing with,” he continued threateningly.

Wulz says her client feels humiliated by the messages he received from Darren.

When YOU approached Darren for comment at the court he said, “Read my lips; no comment.”

Anthony didn’t attend the court proceedings because Wulz had advised him not to incur the cost of travelling from Cape Town to Johannesburg because she knew the case would be postponed.

Darren has to provide the court with the necessary documents before the case can proceed. Darren must appear in court again on 16 September. He has indicated that he will defend himself.

On 11 August, Anthony spoke to YOU at his house in Hermanus and described his bitter battle to get back the money he’d invested in Darren’s media company, Just Plain Media.

Darren’s company folded as a result of a media storm after a racist rant againts a black colleague.

Darren has signed a settlement agreement to pay back to Anthony the R1,125 million plus R175 000 in legal fees. Anthony received the first R100 000 in February this year but hasn’t seen a cent since.
