Gcinile Thwala got herself an attorney after accusing her baby daddy, Grootman, of leaking their private tape.

In one of the videos, Thari said, "This girl is the biggest Popeye I have ever met. I could have easily asked for R50 000 for this case, but I did not ask for a cent. All I wanted to do was help so he would go to jail."

Thari Manhissa is an admitted advocate of the High Court, so she posted the papers all over social media. In the papers, Grootman's private information was put on full display, leading him to get endless calls and WhatsApp messages.

"This is a social media case. She's giving us updates while teaching us about the seriousness of social media offenses, which we take very lightly."
