A gogo based in Cape Town is suing a strip club based in England for millions of rands following an unsavoury incident in 2014.

Merle Groenewald was on a girls’ night out when she attended a show at the Rise club in London.

The 58-year-old from Brackenfell was sitting on her knees in the front row as the Dreamboys male strippers were performing.

News 24 reported that the 4 “firemen” were performing when the incident occurred.

The Sun UK reported that Groenewald suffered severe injuries when 1 of the strippers flung his pants towards the crowd.

The pair of pants struck Groenewald in the face, which resulted in traumatic eye injuries.

The Rapport confirmed that Groenewald is suing Dreamboys for an amount of R2.7 million.

Attorney, Mark Mulrooney, told The Sun that his client required surgery as a result of the injuries.

Mulrooney said, "She has lost useful vision in her left eye and suffered a temporary injury to her right eye."

According to The Mirror, Groenewald’s argument is that organisers failed to arrange sufficient space between the audience and performers.

Briefly.co.za gathered that an easy settlement may not be on the cards as Dreamboys have advised The Sun that Mrs. Groenewald’s injuries could not be "reasonably foreseeable".
