According to the Sunday World, Tamara has asked the Randburg Magistrate’s Court to increase his R10 000 a month child support payment to R20 000.

If the request is granted Mninginisi would have to pay R240 000 a year in child support.

Mninginisi, who allegedly works in a sports shop in France, is reportedly opposing the request

According to the Sunday World, he believes that the money is for Tamara’s “personal benefit”.

“I’ve never known a love like this… On Sunday 17 December 2017 at 11.43pm. We welcomed a beautiful, healthy little girl called #Lalabella into the world and we are all completely besotted with her. There is no greater blessing on this earth! We love you little Lala,” she wrote on Twitter.

Tamara and Mninginisi are set to appear in court in January 2020.
