Actress Amanda du-Pont has accused Molemo ‘Jub Jub’ Maarohanye of raping her in an emotional video. 

She took to Instagram on Thursday to set the record straight about claims Jub Jub made during an interview on 'Podcast and Chill with MacG'. 

Jub Jub told MacG that Amanda was one of the women he "smashed" in the past. He admitted that he cheated on her with singer Kelly Khumalo.

Jub Jub claimed that Kelly used muthi on him. “When you look at me, you put Amanda du-Pont and you put Kelly. There is no way ever that I would have gone for Kelly over Amanda with a sober mind," he told MacG.

A tearful Amanda has slammed Jub Jub's comments on the show. “There are three things that I want to address. The first was that he smashed me. First of all, Molemo you raped me. I was raped for two years. So,  please don’t make it sound like it was a relationship. I was absolutely afraid to leave,” Amanda says.

The '10 Days in Sun City' actress says she was still a virgin. 

“The most painful part about all of this is that I was a virgin. And I told Jub Jub that I was a virgin and I planned to be a virgin until the day I got married."

Amanda denied Jub Jub's claim that she left him after she saw pictures of him and Kelly in a newspaper. 

"I left because he tried to kill me. He suffocated me, he literally suffocated me… I was always afraid to leave because of the threats that were made but at that moment when he tried to kill me, I knew the very thing that I was afraid of, which was dying, I knew was meant to happen that day,” she said while holding back tears.

Amanda says she will be taking legal action against Jub Jub.
