- Local presenter and model, Lalla Hirayama, has decided to take legal action against her father, whom she calls abusive
- She got an interim order which bans him from communicating with her and stalking her and her family
- Lalla has taken her mother with her to Japan - where she's working now - for safety reasons
Lalla Hirayama, local presenter and model, has been going through a lot lately. She's been involved in family issues that resulted in her getting a protection order against her dad, Lance Cooper.
According to ZAlebs, Lalla has accused her father of being abusive and violent. She's currently in Japan for work and has taken her mother with her, citing safety reasons.
Briefly.co.za reported earlier that Lalla and her mom took off for Japan, where they will surely feel safer.
Lalla has since obtained the interim order from the Randburg Magistrate's Court, which bans her dad from communicating with her and stalking her family.
Apparently, Lalla's dad is an acting sangoma and has been mistreating her and her mom.
In one incident, as detailed by Lalla in court papers, her dad harassed her mom at work and had to be taken off the property. He also (allegedly) verbally abused Lalla's 97-year-old grandfather.
And in another incident, Lalla's dad allegedly arrived at her Randburg home, armed, and threatened to break into her place.
