According to Sunday World, the actor wrote a letter to the wine company demanding 50% of his ex-wife’s shares

“My ex-wife had indicated to me that she owns a wine brand to what I have since discovered to possibly could have been a lie, she told me that she owns the brand Palesa Wines. I have shared your details with my lawyer in terms of us seeking clarity on the truth regarding my ex-wife’s affairs and business interests as I was married to her in the community of property, and I’m therefore entitled to 50% of anything that she would also have owned at the time,” the publication shared parts of the letter.
In response, Sunday World revealed that Ferdinand Appel, uniWines Holding Managing Director said Sello’s ex-wife’s claims are untrue and the company wishes to distance itself from their drama.

“Ms Palesa Mboweni has no affiliation with uniWines Holdings or the Palesa Brand. Ms. Palesa Mboweni is not the owner of the Palesa brand. Ms. Palesa Mboweni is not contractually bound in any way to act as an Ambassador on behalf of Palesa brand. The Palesa brand is registered in the name of uniWines Holding (Pty) Ltd since 2011/06/13,” the publication quoted the company’s letter.

The pair tied a knot back in 2015 and called it quits 8 months later. On his Instagram rant, the actor said, “I can not believe I was married to a con artist and you guys called me names when I realised my blunder and divorced her after 8 months!”

He said he is not trying to bash his ex-wife but he wants the truth to be exposed. He warned people to do a “character assessment” before they commit.

He continued, “I want the truth to be known and maybe I can help the young men who may fall victim to women similar to my ex-wife. For the record, I must categorically and unequivocally state that I don’t think all women behave or do things that my ex-wife did to me.”
The veteran actor said his marriage was based on falsehood. He said the misrepresentation by his ex-wife is disgusting for him to open up about all the things she did to him.

“I mean the woman tried to change her children’s surnames to my name without my knowledge and I wouldn’t have known if I didn’t overhear a telephonic conversation between her and her mother, then one of her children’s grandmother approached me, accusing me of using my “big name and public stature” to try and demean them because they were poor, so I wanted to take their grandchild from them,” he shared.
