The gloves are reportedly off between TV personality Penny Lebyane and her ex-boyfriend, Ali Naka who are embroiled in a legal battle

According to Sunday World, Penny dragged Ali to court after he allegedly refused to sign travel documents for her and her family to travel to Swaziland.

Apparently Penny planned to spend the Christmas holidays in the neighbouring country.

Speaking to the tabloid, the TV personality confirmed that she hauled Ali to court because she felt her rights were being violated.

“It has nothing to do with that. I went to court because I felt that my right and the rights of my family were being violated.

“For your information, this man was not even my husband, we were not married. All I want is for him to sign the papers,” she told the paper.

The paper could not reach Ali for comment.

Penny and Ali, who share two children together, separated in 2008.

This is not the first time Penny’s personal life has hogged tabloid headlines

Last year it was reported that her furniture had to be auctioned off to settle debt worth R65 000.

Speaking to Move! magazine at the time, Penny said being in debt didn’t make her any less of a person.
“We all have debts. It’s such a pity that when I’m in debt, it makes headlines. I choose not to live in a bubble – I’m just like everyone else. I don’t have any shame about this because I’m a realist,” she said at the time.
