Real Housewives of Johannesburg (RHOJ) star Christall Kay is at the centre of another drama that is entangled to the show once again.
It has been reported by the Sunday World that Kay is in a battle to take back her R8 million Kyalami mansion from businesswoman Kholeka Bubu. Kay claimed Bubu initially paid her a deposit of just over half the purchase price into the estate agent’s trust account but never made further payments after.
Kay has given The Citizen an update on the battle to get her mansion back.
What we know about Christall Kay’s fight for her mansion:
Kay claims that Bubu was going to be part of season three of Real Housewives of Johannesburg.
“We had better days since she was going to be part of the housewives series. Production approached [Bubu] to star in the opening scene of season three. I was going to hand over the keys to her,” she says.
The Citizen has seen a picture of the two outside the house during the alleged key handover.
Kay says she moved out of the Kyalami house because Bubu paid a deposit just above the purchase price of R8 million. The reality star and singer then claims Bubu did not pay an instalment and when she missed the date to do so, she was given an extension. However, Kay sent her a notice of cancellation in terms of the sale agreement.
“She didn’t pay an instalment and tried to pay the last amounts through a bond. But this was a cash agreement it was never a bond agreement,” Kay says.
Kay has been out of the mansion for two months and is living in a Dainfern property, she told The Citizen. She says Bubu has gone to court to force her to sell the house to her.
Kay further claims that Bubu is only paying around R20,000 a month which is much lower than the agreed R65,000. Kay adds that she is still paying the bond and levies for the house.
The RHOJ star says this has been a draining experience for her, adding thst she isn’t happy and wants to just move back to her home as it is still under her name.
The Citizen reached to Bubu who said she had no comment.
Season three of RHOJ was discontinued by M-Net after a physical altercation between Kay and Gugu Khathi. Kay hopes for the show to return early next year as fans do miss it.
