As Kwaito star Brickz spent another weekend in prison, one of his ex-girlfriends was left heartbroken. Brickz, real name Sipho Ndlovu, appeared at the Roodepoort magistrate's court on Friday to continue his bail application.
His case was postponed to tomorrow. But in the packed gallery was a heavily pregnant ex-girlfriend, Lindi Nkosi. Lindi and Brickz share a six-year-old child.
She said she is saddened by the allegations of rape against him.
"That's not like him. He can't do that, he's a good and caring guy," Lindi said. She said she will stand by him even though they are no longer together.
"He's the father of my child. He fully supports my child and I'm here to support him," she said.
Asked if he was the father of her unborn child, Lindi said it was her husband's child. "I have moved on in life and my husband understands and accepts that Brickz is the father of my child.
He has no problem with me supporting him," she said. Lindi said she has been attending the case since the day he started appearing in court.
When he was led down to the holding cells, she went to hug him.
The two stayed together in Protea, Soweto, shortly after Brickz's relationship ended with TV star Lebo "Elle" Tisane.
Brickz's lawyer Isaac Mokgopi argued that he should be released on bail.
"My client is not a flight risk. The mere fact that he knows the victim is not sufficient enough to deny him bail," said Mokgopi.
He said Brickz was willing to surrender his passport to court.
The State prosecutor argued against bail, saying he's a threat to the victim and witnesses.
