The star expressed that they only used the services of one Bolt driver to transport their kids to and from school. Letoya Makhene said they've been paying the driver, she identified as Alfred, on a monthly basis.

Letoya's bae, Lebo, said they are not going through financial problems at the moment. She shared that Letoya has just finished filming two movies which paid her well and they also bought a car for their 20-year-old son. Lebo insisted that the Bolt driver had an agreement with their son without their permission and he's now dragging Letoya because she's a celebrity.

"This is crap. This is a smear campaign by my cousin who is trying to pull me down."
