‘Ruining his life’: Lizelle serves Teko Modise with letter of demand


Dec 13, 2021

Model Lizelle Tabane announced that she served her ex-fiancé, former South African soccer player Teko Modise with a letter of demand, via an Instagram post today (13 December) – after he claimed she falsely accused him of abuse. 


Teko Modise and Lizelle Tabane were in an on and off relationship since 2013. The pair got engaged the same year and the former soccer player paid lobola for Lizelle. When things went south, Teko reportedly demanded her family pay back the lobola. 

Teko was accused of physically abusing Lizelle in 2014. The former footballer claimed that Lizelle used old pictures, from someone else who abused her to accuse him of abuse.

“I remember when we started dating there were pictures on her phone. I think somebody abused her or something like that. She had scars and all of that stuff, right. So when we broke up… she took the same pictures… the same pictures went to the media and said I was beating her up,” said Teko.

“It was scary because at the time I was still having endorsements. It was very toxic for me. She is a beautiful person, a beautiful woman,” he continued.

Lizelle has since fired back at the footballer, affectionately known as “The General”. Taking to Instagram, the model announced that she is serving Teko with a letter of demand for his allegations on the podcast. 

“Our client finds it irresponsible and insensitive for you to make such false allegations during the 16 days of activism for no violence against women and children in our country. As you should be aware – whilst our client was customarily married to you, without any justification you assaulted our client. To the extent that she had to flee from you and lock herself in a bedroom where she immediately called the South African police,” reads the letter. 

“Our client suffered bruises on her neck (from choking) swollen lips, chipped tooth and a bruised eye and nose,” the letter continued. 

Lizelle demands Teko publicly retract the allegations against her on Podcast And Chill and other social media platforms by Tuesday 14 December.
