CONTROVERSIAL comedian Felistas Murata Mai TT’s Ex-lover Tinashe Maphosa is demanding US$250 000 from the comedian.
Maphosa sent summons to Mai TT demanding US$250 000 for defaming him.
In court summons seen by this publication, Maphosa is suing the comedienne for defamation damages.
Reads part of the summons:
Plaintiffs claim against the Defendant is for payment of the sum of US$250 000.00 (Two Hundred and Fifty United States Dollars) being defamation damages. The damages arises from statements made by the Defendant on her social medial platforms which include facebook through her social media handle called “Mai Ts Diaries”, wherein Defendant stated that, the Plaintiff is a serial liar, abusive, rapist and criminal who used the Defendant’s name to borrow money. Furthermore the article went on to insinuate that the Plaintiff was a criminal who has perfected his art of planning his moves before striking to manipulate his victims.
Such words were untrue, wrongful and were intended to injure Plaintiffs reputation. Plaintiff also claims interest and cost of suit.
Reacting to the latest development, Mai TT shouted at her American-based ex-husband for suing her.
“I’m paying vanhu maridzawakaba ndirikusafa nezvikwereti zvako iwembwa iwe otumira summons musa–nyoko wako iwe mbwaiwe. idiot mbavha wakadyaidzwa iwe musa–nyoko if u know u re innocent land here imbwa du–iwe mbwaaaaaa yemunhu,”
“He wants to silence me through the courts, but I will not be silenced,” she said.
“I will let the whole world know that Tinashe is a criminal.
“I was healing, I stopped talking about him, he stole from me and the whole world laughed at me and now he is back to finish me off with a lawsuit.
“He stole from me, ran away and now he is serving me summons because I told the world that he stole from me.
“He should stop sending me lawyers and just give me what he owes me.”
Mai TT claimed she was paying back money which Maphosa allegedly stole.
“I have worked very hard for my name and money, now this man wants to take everything that I have ever worked for.”
Mai TT said she regrets the day she let Maphosa into her life as he has brought only hell.
“2022 has been my worst year so far.
“As I look at my life, I see only darkness because of one person.
“God sent the devil himself into my life and I regret meeting Tinashe.
“I just want to rest in peace. I can’t believe this is happening to me, God has failed me this time.”
