His lawyer, Tim Gordon-Grant, a senior litigation partner at Bowmans, said in a statement seen by TimesLIVE:
“On behalf of Dr Patrice Motsepe, we put on record that the allegation in the media that Dr Patrice Motsepe has children or a relationship with Ms Katlego Danke are absolutely false and fake news.
“These allegations are defamatory and expose the disseminators of these false and untrue allegations to allegations of legal liability.”
Gordon-Grant also acknowledged a news report in which the Gomora actress put the record straight that Motsepe was not the father of her child.
The actress had been out of action on Gomora since 2022 after falling pregnant. The show also incorporated her baby bump into her storyline so that her absence would not disrupt the flow of the show.
