Baloyi fires illicit shots - Ex goal stopper accused of wife stealing
MAMELODI Sundowns commercial and marketing manager Brian Baloyi, has been accused by a Mamelodi husband of exercising his waist in his marital goalmouth.
Baloyi, known as "Spiderman" for his legendary goalkeeping exploits, was fingered by Kabelo Mashao of Mahube Extension in Mamelodi East as the wrecker of his marriage to Lebo Mashao, who also works for Sundowns as a financial assistant.
Baloyi dismisses Mashao's claims.
"I don't know that man. He must find another reason to break up with his wife. Lebo is a colleague of mine," says the former Kaizer Chiefs, Sundowns and Bafana Bafana shot stopper.
News that Baloyi allegedly dribbled his way into Mashao's bedroom came to the fore when the distraught hubby called the police to his house during the Easter weekend.
Mashao wanted the police to quell a possible domestic violence incident when a heated quarrel broke out between him and his wife over the matter.
It is alleged Mashao, who was taxed beyond endurance, called the Mamelodi East police to his house to intervene as he did "not want to do anything stupid".
"When the police arrived there, the man told them that his wife was having an affair with Baloyi.
"The man said he suspected that she was having an affair with him as she always left the house every time she received a phone call from Spiderman.
"He told them he had discovered that she was having an affair with Baloyi.
"The woman has since packed her bags and left the house," says a police officer who was off-duty during the skirmish but did not want to be named.
Another police officer close to the situation confirms that Mashao accused Baloyi of wrecking his marriage.
He says, however, that neither of the two parties wanted to open a case.
"When our members arrived there, the man complained that his wife was having an affair with Baloyi. But the woman has since left the house" says the officer, who also asked not to be identified.
Lebo denies she has separated from her husband.
"I'm still very much with Kabelo. That we separated is news to me," she says.
But her husband Kabelo confirms they have separated.
"We have separated and I can't comment now because this is now a legal matter. I'm now living with my son and I'm taking care of him," he insists.
Asked if it is true that Baloyi was the central figure in the nasty break-up, Kabelo says: "That is not the only reason. But I can't talk about this matter now because I'm a spiritual person.
"I need to pray first and talk to my family. I'll let you know when I'm ready to speak because I want to expose that guy."
