Amanda du-Pont took to Instagram to tell her side of the story. Amanda said that Jub Jub should not say that he smashed her when he raped her for two years in a video that she posted. The two were in a relationship for two years, and Amanda claims that sex with him was never consensual. She could not leave the relationship because Jub Jub and his mother threatened him. She said that he usually forced himself on her when they were people in the house just so that she could not scream.
Jub Jub, in his interview, claimed that Amanda left him after he saw pictures of Kelly Khumalo with him. She set the record straight and addressed fans, saying the musician tried to kill her and suffocated her. She had to run away and tried opening a case with the police but was dismissed by an officer. Pictures that sufficed of Amanda and Jub Jub when he was in prison were taken after she had visited the jail for a different purpose with DJ Sbu.
