Sex siren and socialite Pulane Lenkoe shocked social media when she revealed in an Instagram post that her ex-bae, former Kaizer Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns player Katlego Mphela, used to physically abuse.

In the post, accompanied by multiple pictures of her with bruised eyes, Pulane tells how Katlego allegedly repeatedly battered her and how he’d follow up his actions with endless apologies.

Nka se tlhole ke go toucher, my love, I promise you [I will never touch you again, my love],” Pulane wrote, claiming these are the words her ex-bae would utter after a beating. The socialite also revealed Katlego emotionally abused her.

She says it was after the death of Karabo Mokoena that she opened her eyes to the abuse she’s had to endure at the hands of someone who promised to love, protect and make her feel safe. “I honestly believe if it wasn’t for the unfortunate passing of Karabo I would still be in his arms,” Pulane said, adding what she feared most was ending up like Karabo (she was allegedly murdered and her body burnt by her boyfriend, Sandile Mantsoe).

Following a barrage of social media posts applauding Pulane for her bravery, she thanked everyone for their support and words of encouragement, saying that she just wanted to help other women who might find themselves in the same position.

Here's a look at Pulane's posts;

accident that's how badly injured I was, the first time he beat me( I wish I had kept the pics, but he convinced me to delete them in order for us to move on, after he told me he will never allow himself to touch me again, blamed it on stress and insecurities, so i forgave him), funny thing is that i always considered myself to be very strong, i guess we all have our weaknesses, i allowed this man who promised to love, protect and make me feel safe to do this to me over and over and over and over again, and each time he would swore, " nka se tlhole ke go toucher, i promise my love" and soon as he said that it's like i would be hypnotized or something cause the only person i felt i needed it would be the same person who was causing me pain, and the one thing that i realize now that I've left that relationship is that not only do these men inflict physical pain but they will also cause emotional abuse, which is far more damaging, though i acted strong in front of the world it got to a point where i started believing the things he told me, and felt had nowhere else to go but to stay with him, till 6 weeks later after this incident took place and the passing of Karabo Mokoena(May her soul RIP??) occurred and that was an eye opener for me,I honestly believe if it wasn't for the unfortunate passing of Karabo i would still be in his arms till this day, i then realized that if I didn't leave this would also be a destiny of mine. Even after this incident, when I tried to leave him then he begged me to stay and said he was getting professional help, i wanted to believe him but in my heart i knew the relationship was far too gone to be saved, there was nothing left to be saved, every time he hit me, as much as I thought I needed him, i didn't it was just fear of starting over without him, shame, and all of those negative thoughts occupying my head but the actual fact is he killed every love emotion I ever felt for him. There's nothing worse than praying for someone or try to help someone who doesn't see anything wrong with their actions, all you can do is pray for them from a distance, I do this in hope that this will find another woman like myself who thinks this behavior
