The insurance company that is removing all of its TV commercials featuring Katlego Maboe after a growing scandal around the Expresso presenter and his acrimonious marital relationship including allegations of physical abuse, says he doesn't work for Outsurance, is an actor that was used and got fully paid for it.

Outsurance says that the "other woman" Nikita Murray who Katlego Maboe allegedly had secret hotel sex with, last worked for the insurance company two years ago.

Scandal is swirling around Katlego Maboe who has been removed from Expresso on SABC3 while insurer Outsurance is removing all of its TV commercials starring him "as soon as possible". 

It follows his confession of having cheated on Monique Muller and which led to Monique allegedly getting a sexually transmitted disease (STD). 

Monique also claims physical abuse. Her brother Seth Muller alleged that Katlego Maboe also cheated on Monique Muller while she was pregnant with their son and multiple other times.

In a statement, Katlego Maboe said 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, but that claim is disputed by Monique who is set to talk about the alleged physical abused she endured.

Monique Muller did a sit-down interview with the GoBinge channel on YouTube that released a 1-minute teaser about the upcoming interview that it plans to release sometime this week. 

Outsurance on Monday morning told TVwithThinus that "Following media reports of infidelity and an acrimonious marital relationship, including alleged physical abuse, involving Katlego Maboe, Outsurance has engaged extensively with Katlego Maboe and it was decided that Katlego and his family should be afforded the space and time to deal with this matter".

"As part of that discussion, the proposal was to in the meantime suspend all advertisements featuring Katlego. Outsurance remains of the opinion that the matter should be resolved in private."

Outsurance says that "It is important to note that Katlego Maboe is not an Outsurance employee or a permanent contractor to Outsurance. He is a professional actor who is paid on a campaign by campaign basis."

"Katlego Maboe has received his full compensation from Outsurance for all past as well as the current campaign in which he was featured. This includes performance as well as full usage fees for the entire campaign."

"We also want to clarify that Nikita Murray is not a current Outsurance employee. She last worked for the company in 2018. Katlego Maboe and Nikita Murray met independently and not via any relation to Outsurance."
