The show claimed its first casualty in its first episode, Pule Hlatshwayo, a scriptwriter on new SABC TV series Tjovitjo.
Hlatshwayo was hauled before the show by his baby mama, a former Yizo Yizo actress who had problems getting him to pay maintenance towards their five children.
She said Hlatshwayo had failed to support his kids for the past four years, despite obtaining three maintenance orders against him.
The court had ordered Hlatshwayo to pay R2500 a month but the baby mama said he only paid once. She told the show and this paper that she was now owed R120 000.
The actress claimed that Hlatshwayo was leading a lavish lifestyle.
"He is currently a scriptwriter of Tjovitjo but you won't believe me when I say to you he hasn't paid a cent for his kids. That's how cruel he is."
Hlatshwayo conceded during the interview that he had not seen his kids for two years but said he was not paying because the mom refused to allow their kids to be part of his life.
