Rachel Kolisi could soon find herself apologising to the woman she put on blast for allegedly sending her husband, Springbok star Siya, a sexy picture on Instagram
Marike Botha, known on Instagram as Miki Booty, wants Rachel to publicly apologise for sharing her personal information on social media.
Speaking to Channel 24, the fitness model’s manager Mr. Bernard, says his client has been “violated”.
“If Rachel does not want to offer an apology, the legal route is still an option for us,” he says.
Rachel caused a social media meltdown on Monday when she not only shared the explicit image she found in her husband’s direct messages but also the woman’s Instagram handle and the name of her gym.
“The days of women having to take s**t and deal with s**t are over,” she said in a video.
Rachel has since deactivated her Instagram account and has remained quiet since the story went viral.
Some have accused her of being “insecure” while others have applauded her for putting the woman in her place.
Marike claimed in a message on her Instagram story that Siya was the one who first contacted her
She did not reveal the full details of their communication, but she shared a screenshot that showed Siya had replied to one of her Instagram stories, informing her to contact someone.
“Siya Kolisi slides into my DMs. Sends me my post that I posted on IG. His wife sees this and makes it look like I’m sending him my a*s… I’m not going to try to defend myself, but I have 100s of people messaging me telling me I’m a slut. What about him sliding into my DMs?”

Her manager says there has been concern for her safety since she received “threatening messages” online
“After the post went viral she couldn’t even speak. She is unable to go to places she usually goes to like the gym and the campus where she studies. But… the biggest trauma has been being shamed nationally without having her story being told, or any concrete evidence,” Bernard told Channel 24.
Despite the huge backlash Marike has received, she seems to be enjoying her five minutes of infamy.
“Check out the a** pic that made the news,” she wrote on Instagram. Marike even asked her followers whether she should change her handle to “my booty made me famous” or “miki booty”.
“Thank you so much for your messages of support,” she wrote.
