Legal battles

The former lovebirds had nothing but a tumultuous relationship, and by 2015, their differences were beyond reconciliation. Not long after their wedding, they started engaging in arguments that culminated in legal battles. While Edwin claims he broke up with Lerata in 2015, she has held that they are still married according to customary law.

In one of the legal battles, Edwin accuses Lerata of stealing R1 million from him. According to Edwin, the money and other valuables, including a Rolex, Panerai and Audemars Piguet watches, were inside a safe in their bedroom. Those things were stolen while he was overseas, and he suspected that his wife had sold them and used the money to buy herself a Bentley.

In another case, Lerata accused her husband of assault. Earlier in 2022, Edwin was forced to present himself to the police after the report by his wife. He was detained at the Sandton Police Station on a charge of assault with intent to cause grievous bodily harm. Based on his wife’s allegations, Edwin had pointed a gun at her when they were engaged in a domestic dispute at their Bryanston home.
