Lebo M’s wife, Pretty Samuels-Morake calls out Zoe Mthiyane




Lebo M’s current wife Pretty Samuels-Morake has called out actress Zoe Mthiyane, accusing her of being a Picasso of lies and an absent mother.

This after Zoe told Sunday World last week that her co-parenting with Lebo M, born Lebogang Morake, was a mission impossible.

She praised her other child’s father, revered sports presenter Robert Marawa, as an amazing parent, compared with Lebo M.

“Parenting with Lebo is impossible. We had to find ways to cope with that fact. However, I am lucky to have had intensive therapy, valuable advice and support to lean on. I practise gentle parenting as I learned early on that each child is born with their own personality.” said Mthiyane.

Samuels-Morake said she had initially chosen to remain silent despite numerous attempts to destabilise her family, but decided to break her silence after Mthiyane’s public gibberish.

“In my efforts to maintain the dignity of my family, but most importantly to protect the wellbeing of our kids, I have chosen to remain silent. But given the severity and nature of these allegations, I can no longer remain silent whilst my children are attacked and associated with such defamatory statements in the media.

“I would like to categorically deny that we have no co-parenting plan with Zoe Mthiyane. The matter regarding the child has always been addressed legally by the relevant forum,” reads the statement from Samuels-Morake.

Zoe added that the circumstances that led to the child being taken away from Mthiyane were as a result of her being arrested, after she was involved in an accident, when she was driving under the influence of alcohol.

“After the tragic accident, the courts gave my husband custody of the child and ordered  Mthiyane to undergo rehabilitation and therapy so that she may one day be considered a fit mother. Our daughter has been in my husband’s care for the past few years and her primary residence is with us.”

She added that Mthiyane last spent time with her daughter around Mother’s Day in 2021, after Lebo M initiated the visit.
