In new revelations a close confidant of Monique Muller says that away from the cheerful morning TV persona that Katlego Maboe presents to the world, there is a whole other side to the man who cheated on the mother of his child and who allegedly gave her a sexually-transmitted disease (STD) last year after he returned from a trip to the Ukraine that was sponsored by Lay's Chips.
To try and limit brand damage Cardova Productions has taken Katlego Maboe off the air from its weekday breakfast show Expresso on SABC3 this past week while Outsurance rushed to re-edit and scrub all traces of him from all of the insurer's TV commercials.
It follows after the shocking fallout from the video on social media that has gone viral, in which Katlego Maboe is confronted by his former lover and mother of his 2-year old son, Monique Muller.
In the video, Katlego, dressed in a gown, sheepishly admits to having cheated on her with another woman identified as Nikkita Murray who has since locked her social media accounts.
In the video, Monique Muller accuses Katlego Maboe of giving her an STD that damaged her womb, and in another video she claims that Katlego Maboe allegedly physically abused her as well, saying that "When the first physical attack happened I got a protection order against him".
Katlego Maboe has since abruptly disappeared from the public eye, only releasing a terse statement, saying that "I was unfaithful to my partner during a very important time of our lives - an act I regret to this day. We are currently undergoing an unfortunate and painful separation which is being resolved through legal proceedings".
"In light of the comments made against me, I would like to state that I have never abused my partner," Katlego Maboe said.
Monique Muller got a protection order preventing Katlego Maboe from setting foot in the Seapoint flat in Cape Town that they used to share.
In new revelations in the latest 5 November issue of YOU and Huisgenoot magazines, a close confidant of Monique Muller reveals that Katlego Maboe is not the man that viewers see on TV.
In July this year, Monique discovered that Katlego Maboe allegedly gave her an STD.
Katlego Maboe apparently travelled to Kiev, Ukraine to watch a soccer match while he was a brand ambassador for Lay's Chips where he later admitted to Monique that he kissed one of the women who won the competition on a dancefloor.
He later allegedly had sex with this woman in a hotel room.
YOU and Huisgenoot obtained another video in which Katlego Maboe tells Monique that his shameful behaviour is because he thought that being on TV enabled him to engage in this type of behaviour and that he feels terrible about it.
In the video, Katlego Maboe says that when he's on people's TV screens he is forced to smile and look cheerful because it's his work - but that when he's off-camera he doesn't have to keep up a happy and friendly persona.
Following his cheating scandal that has damaged his public reputation and trust, Outsurance has rushed to edited Katlego Maboe out of its "Chencha dai deng" TV adverts, now only showing testimonials of customers without Katlego interviewing them.
Expresso publicist El Broide said in a statement that the SABC3 show "condemns any acts of violence and mistreatment, especially against women and children, and therefore take such allegations very seriously".
"Until such time as the matter has been fully investigated, and pending the outcome, Katlego Maboe will not be appearing on Expresso".
Interestingly, a week later GoBinge has not yet published the sit-down interview that the YouTube channel did and teased with Monique Muller since last weekend in which she talks about how Katlego Maboe had allegedly physically attacked her and how the TV presenter cheater on her.
