They allegedly drifted apart when she fell pregnant with his child.
"They broke up for a while and when the child was about five or six, he resurfaced and told her friend, who is a psychologist, that he was the father.
"He started visiting the child and even took the child to his mother in QwaQwa (eastern Free State) to meet her. They received their child well," said the relative.
The relative said although Motloung loved his daughter, he allegedly failed to pay school fees consistently and that forced his baby mama to take him to court.
"Three years ago, she started school at one of the most expensive but excellent private girls schools in Joburg.
"In 2017, of the R140000 of the school fees, he paid about R20000 or R30000. Her mother paid the difference," said the relative.
