Emtee and Nicole Kendal Clash Over Trust Account Funds in divorce proceedings

Award-winning hip-hop artist Emtee and his estranged wife Nicole Kendal are at each other’s throats again.

Kendal has applied for an urgent court interdict in the Joburg High Court to force Emtee to pay the funds back into the trust account within two days of obtaining the order.

Preserving the Assets

Kendal also wants the order to prevent him from taking loans against their assets, dissipating their assets, or depleting the bank account of Emtee Records or trust account, or selling shares in Africa Trap Movement.

Kendal also wants the funds in the trust account to remain preserved until the finalisation of divorce proceedings at the Randburg magistrate’s court.

The Background of the Dispute

In the court papers which we have seen, she says they tied the knot in community of property, noting that the union was solemnized in Alexandra, north of Johannesburg on July 15, 2019.

She further says in the papers that before concluding the marriage, they were blessed with two children born on January 29, 2018, and May 4, 2023, respectively.

The estranged couple’s last child, she explains, was born just after Emtee vacated their matrimonial home following the couple’s much-publicized domestic violence squabble which resulted in the rapper being arrested for allegedly assaulting her.

Emtee was let scot-free after Kendal extended an olive branch and withdrew the case against him about three weeks ago.

Transfer of Funds and Allegations

She also explains in the court papers that in August 2022, Emtee formed a trust and appointed his friend and lawyer Dumisani Motsamai of Morolong Inc as a trustee.

“On or about 2 May 2023, I received a notification from FNB that a sum of R599 603.00 had been transferred from the trust account to a cheque account ending with [numbers withheld],” read the court papers in part.

She further says in the papers that Emtee and Motsamai could be the only two people who could have authorized the transaction for such a huge amount.

Nicole also accuses Emtee of seeking to deplete the assets of the trust so that if she secures a decree of divorce and obtains an order to share the assets, she could walk away with nothing.

Kendal does not own any assets except a laptop, cellphone, jewellery, and clothing, she explains further.

Among his other assets, says Kendal in the papers, Emtee has a studio and other music production equipment, clothes, jewellery, and other personal assets and funds that are in the trust.
