Former footballer Kaizer Motaung Jnr has spoken out following recent reports of him obtaining a protection order against his wife.
The former football star took to Instagram late on Monday to post a quote reading:
“I used to be married but I’m much better now.”
In a caption that suggested that the footballer might be making a fresh start‚ Kaizer wrote: “God has a plan for us all.. Journey begins. Life goes on.”
His post drew widespread support from fans and friends‚ including actress Lorcia Cooper‚ who flooded the comments section with messages encouraging him to stay strong.
“Not ever easy… But it is what it is. #LifeGoesOn. GOD bless‚” the Scandal! actress wrote.
The Sunday World earlier this month reported that he had obtained an interim protection order against wife‚ Katherine Heider‚ for apparently physically abusing him. Since then‚ the couple’s relationship has been exposed as strained and turbulent.
The footballer once again made headlines a few days ago when a court affidavit revealed that he had previously been rushed to a Johannesburg clinic in a terrible condition following an apparent overdose on cough medicine.
