South African actress, Zoe Mthiyane‘s interview with Sunday World ruffled the feathers of her baby daddy’s wife. The actress compared her two baby daddy’s co-parenting styles saying Robert Marawa co-parents better than her ex-fiance, Lebohang ‘Lebo M’ Morake.
The former Generations: The Legacy actress Zoe Mthiyane spoke to the Sunday publication saying it’s difficult co-parenting with Lebo M compared to Robert Marawa.
With ex-boyfriend, sports commentator Robert Marawa, Zoe told the publication they have a respectful co-parenting relationship which was made possible by the help of their loved ones.
“I would describe parenting with Robert as respectful. Our families and close friends have played a major role in creating and maintaining a safety net around our son, and for that, I will forever be grateful. He is lucky, ” Zoe told the publication.
However, Zoe said it’s very impossible to co-parent with the Lion King composer.
“Parenting with Lebo is impossible. We had to find ways to cope with that fact. However, I am lucky to have had intensive therapy, valuable advice, and support to lean on. I practice gentle parenting as I learned early on that each child is born with their personality.”
Her words ruffled Lebo’s wife Pretty Samuels-Morake, who slammed Zoe. She said Zoe is a liar and an absent mother.
“In my efforts to maintain the dignity of my family, but most importantly to protect the wellbeing of our kids, I have chosen to remain silent. But given the severity and nature of these allegations, I can no longer remain silent whilst my children are attacked and associated with such defamatory statements in the media,” reacted Pretty as quoted by The South African.
Pretty Samuels then alleged that Zoe being arrested for drunk driving saw her daughter getting taken away from her. Their daughter was reportedly given to Lebo to stay with them while Zoe undergone therapy. Her sessions would help determine whether Zoe would one day be fit enough to parent their daughter.
“After the tragic accident, the courts gave my husband custody of the child and ordered Mthiyane to undergo rehabilitation and therapy so that she may one day be considered a fit mother. Our daughter has been in my husband’s care for the past few years and her primary residence is with us,” she concluded.
