Mohale has accused the 'Idols SA' judge of breaking his ribs, almost knocking out some of his teeth, pulling a kitchen knife on him, and trying to run his car off the road.

He told the story of one of these incidents that took place within the first three weeks of their relationship after Mohale stayed over at a friend's place. Upon his return home, he was interrogated by Somizi about where he had slept and got upset, which led to Mohale suggesting they end the relationship.
