Lebo M Reveals He Lives In Fear Amidst Divorce Proceedings
Acclaimed composer Lebo Morake, widely known as Lebo M, has expressed deep concerns over his safety due to an unresolved issue with his estranged wife, Pretty Samuels-Morake. The situation revolves around his electronic signature, which he provided to Samuels-Morake during his tour to Europe from April to June.
Proxy Usage Leads to Marriage Breakdown
Lebo M revealed that, as his spouse, he entrusted Samuels-Morake to use his electronic signature as a proxy to sign documents on his behalf during his absence. However, upon his return from Europe, he asked his wife to delete the signature from her PC, resulting in a heated altercation between the two.
“The altercation was fueled by Samuels-Morake’s reluctance to sign a sworn affidavit stating that she had destroyed the signature,” Lebo M stated. “After some persistence, Samuels-Morake eventually relented and signed the affidavit, confirming the destruction of the electronic signature.”
Failure to Sign Affidavit Raises Concerns
In July, the situation took a turn when Lebo M requested Samuels-Morake to sign another affidavit. This affidavit was to confirm that she was not aware of any policies that would be effected upon his death, with her or others as beneficiaries. However, she failed to comply with his request.
“I asked Samuels-Morake to forward the affidavit to me via e-mail or WhatsApp, which she has failed to do. This has put me in great discomfort, and I fear for my life and that of my children,” expressed Lebo M. “I am deeply troubled by her refusal to sign the second affidavit.”
Seeking Legal Help and Ensuring Protection
Lebo M further stated that he intends to attach the relevant affidavits to his last will and testament. He is currently consulting with his attorneys to investigate and verify whether there are any fraudulent life policies in his name or any life covers taken out to insure his life without his knowledge and consent, which would be considered a serious offense of fraud.
Divorce Proceedings Following Marriage Failure
On a separate note, Lebo M announced earlier this week that he is pursuing divorce proceedings following the breakdown of his fifth marriage with Pretty Samuels-Morake.
As the situation unfolds, Lebo M hopes to find a resolution to the electronic signature issue and move forward with his life. Meanwhile, his legal team continues to investigate the matter to ensure his safety and protect his assets.
