"The problem started two weeks ago when I confronted him. He was sitting outside with his friends and two girls. I called him to the side and asked him who the girls were. That was not the first time [I found him hanging around with strange women]. I asked him because I needed to know why he keeps doing that and disregarding my feelings. He got aggressive but that time he walked away," she said.
She later told him she would move out because there was tension between them which was not healthy for the child.
She told Sunday World that she had been battling depression which was made worse by the abusive situation. As a result, she attempted suicide by trying to overdose on pills with alcohol.
"I sent him a message to tell him it was not worth it anymore, however, he rushed home and found me before I overdosed on the pills."
She claimed the rapper forbade her to go out with friends.
She said initially Nene was a caring person but his character changed when he became famous.
"I met him when he had nothing and stayed with his mother in the Vaal," she said.
Gauteng police spokesperson captain Lungelo Dlamini confirmed a cause of assault was opened and the accused appeared at the Johannesburg magistrate's court on Friday. Big Zulu couldn't be reached for comment at the time of going to print.
