Kelly Khumalo’s feud with Sam Meyiwa has taken an unexpected turn with the singer sending a cease and desist letter through her lawyers to the father of her murdered boyfriend.
Apparently, Kelly has reached her elastic limit and can’t take it anymore. Thus, she told Sam through a blistering letter, to stop defaming and humiliating her, and damaging her reputation.
“Kelly has had enough of the malicious rumours being spread about her. She is tired of being abused by Sam Meyiwa,” said Linda Moeketsi, Kelly’s publicity manager.
She won’t take any more of Sam’s derogatory comments about her when speaking to publications. He has called her a lot of things and now she wants him to stop.
Consequently, the “cease and desist” letter, written by law firm boss Ruth Makhambeni, was delivered to Meyiwa’s home in Umlazi, Durban, by the sheriff of the court on Friday evening.
Khumalo’s lawyers threatened via the letter that if Sam doesn’t stop, she will sue him “for the damages suffered”.
Sam who said he’s consulting his lawyers about the letter still thinks Kelly was out of line.
“Kelly has the audacity to serve me with a letter ordering me to stop mentioning her name in interviews, when I’m the one who lost a son. Whether I get arrested or killed, I would never stop mentioning people who were present when my son was killed. I’m still coming to terms with who killed my son and what Kelly is doing to me is unfair and unacceptable. In all of this she is still playing the victim,” said Meyiwa.
The last straw that broke the camel’s back in Kelly Khumalo’s feud with Sam Meyiwa unfolded when she unveiled one of her latest tracks which is a tribute to her late boyfriend and football star Senzo Meyiwa.
Meanwhile, Sam’s reaction to the song was to say that she did it to annoy his family. He also said a lot of things about the singer which may have sparked off the lawsuit.
