- Popular SA singer, Tamara Dey, is suing her child's father for R4.5 million in child support
- She has a 20-month old girl, Lalabella, with Yvonne Chaka Chaka's son, Ningi Mhinga
- The pair will face off in court in January 2020
Yvonne Chaka Chaka has a precious grandchild born to her oldest son, Ningi Mhinga, and Tamara Dey, the popular local singer.
20-month-old Lallabella is often seen on Yvonne's social media accounts where she gushes over the cutie pie.
However, things are currently not looking so rosy between her parents (who are not together) as Tamara is taking Ningi to court over 'papgeld'.
According to ZAlebs, Tamara is dragging her baby daddy to the Randburg Magistrate's Court, claiming R4.5 million.
Apparently, the singer wants Ningi to pay R20 000 per month in child support instead of only R10 000; this will reach R4.5 million by the time Lalabella is mature.
Briefly.co.za gathered that Ningi works in France and will fight back against Tamara's demands, saying she wants to use the money for herself, not the child.
Ningi says he pays his daughter's expenses such as her medical aid and all the needs that Tamara lists every month.
He regularly visits his child and they spend a lot of time together at Yvonne's place in Bryanston.
TimesLIVE reports that Tamara and Ningi will appear in court on 28 January 2020 to tackle the matter.
Here's what Yvonne had to say on the matter, as reported on by Sunday World:
"She [Tamara] and the child are always here at my house. We always buy everything that the child needs. My husband does everything that we have to do as the child’s grandparents, we have not neglected the child, we always see the child because the child is part of our family."
