- Khanyi Mbau is allegedly in hot water with the bank over lack of payment of her luxury cars
- The media personality is apparently a few months in arrears with regards to the instalments on her Porsche and Mercedes
- When questioned about the situation, Khanyi downplayed the circumstances and attributed it to a misunderstanding
It seems all may not be well in Khanyi Mbau-land after reports have suggested that the media personality owes the bank some money. It has been alleged that she has been failing to keep up with payments of her two luxury cars and they have now been repossessed.
The City Press reported that the celeb failed to respond to court papers confirming the cancellation of the instalment sale agreement of a 2015 Porsche 912 Carrera and a 2014 Mercedes-Benz ML 63 AMG.
The Sunday World had initially broken the story a month ago, but Mbau denied ever receiving the court papers when she was questioned by the publication.
The reality TV star allegedly missed two months worth of payment for the car and her accounts are in arrears. The personality reportedly told the bank that she had sold the Mercedes-Benz before receiving any court orders.
With regards to the Porsche, Khanyi claimed to be only one month behind with payments. The cars cost over R1 million each and Khanyi was reportedly paying close to R30 000 a month for each car.
It seems the Covid-19 pandemic hit Khanyi particularly hard. Briefly.co.za had previously reported that Khanyi Mbau has revealed that the economic collapse brought about by Covid-19 has impacted her and ruined her chances of getting a proper income this year. Speaking to TshisaLIVE, the media personality revealed that she has given up on earning a decent income this year.
Not only is the starlet struggling to land gigs, but the alcohol ban had halted the sale of her newly-launched gin, I Am Khanyi.
Mbau said that the lockdown has affected her mentally, financially and spiritually. The self-proclaimed Queen of Bling said that she had seen many friends in the industry move back to their parents' home or with siblings because of ailing finances.
Khanyi Mbau recently took to social media to reveal that she was looking for a man again. The media personality made it clear that only rich and handsome men would do. Taking to social media, Mbau tweeted: "I feel like going on date a very handsome rich man tomorrow night, serious people only. P.S. I said handsome and rich. Tag me."
The celebrity is known for her taste for the finer things in life so it's no surprise that she expects her man to be well-endowed financially. Of course her request was met with mixed reactions; while some excitedly responded with their credentials, others took to troll her.
