Why does Steve Hofmeyr not keep his personal business out of the public domain?
You could blame the women in his life for discussing their personal details with the press and in books, Hofmeyr is no innocent.
He aggravated the situations by discussing his ex-lovers/wife on his blog!
Heck, I’m not famous, but I would never do that to someone I’ve once cared about.
In the latest Steve Hofmeyr saga, his former lover Janine van der Vyver took him to court for slander.
The same woman who is alleged to have had an affair with Hofmeyr before and during his marriage to Natasha Sutherland.
For those interested in the details, van der Vyver is writing a book (called ’n Tas vol toeka) about their sleeziness – which she refers to as a loving romantic relationship!
Hofmeyr called van der Vyver names – refering to her as a popstar groupie – to which his ex-lover took offense.
Our ‘famous’ popstar did not like being sued, so he asked the courts to drop the case. After a hearing judge George Bizos decided that in actual fact Janine van der Vyver had a case and awarded her costs since it was an insult to a woman who believed herself to be in a loving long term relationship.
(Forget the fact that Hofmeyr had a wife and children during this relationship.)
Apparently no one told Ms van der Vyver about the judgement.
She claims that since then court documents disappeared 4 times, but the case will apparently go ahead soon.
Van der Vyver claims to not know this Hofmeyr who she loved for 10 years.
All she should do is to read the tabloids – Hofmeyr might have a successful singing career, but he’s never been shown to be a good partner in a relationship.
