In related news, Briefly News reported that Orlando Pirates striker Gabadinho Mhango was recently in the headlines for not being able to make a payment during a night out.

Now, more details have emerged from that fateful night and the footballer finds himself in a pickle with OnlyFans star Wandi Ndlovu. After their night out in Pretoria, they wanted to change their location to Sandton because there was apparently a place open past curfew.

They stopped for petrol at the garage and that's when things started going wrong.

"I got out to get some fresh air and as I tried to get in, Gabadinho drove over my foot. I screamed in pain but he wouldn't stop the car," said Wandi to Daily Sun.
