The TV beauty further demanded that the blogger unconditionally retract the defamatory post from all his socials and that an effectual apology be made in the same prominent manner as the published impugned post.

“A full, unreserved and unconditional retraction to be posted on the same blog and or Instagram page in terms to be approved by us on behalf of our clients, of each and every reference to, and allegation made against our clients,” Betty’s legal team stated.

The legal term further added that the blogger should have unconditional confirmation and commitment in writing not to post any further comments or articles defamatory about Betty.

“A full and unconditional admission in writing of liability for defamation whereafter the quantum of the damages payable to our clients can be addressed,” Betty’s legal letter reads.

The legal term further gave the blogger four days ultimatum failure to which legal action will be taken against him.

“Take notice that unless we receive your positive response to the demands set out above by the close of business Friday, 12 July 2024, we have firm instructions to institute appropriate legal proceedings against you,” the legal team said.

Betty’s decision

Disclosing the reason behind the legal action, Betty, in a statement published on her Instagram page, revealed that she is done tolerating people defaming her.

“I have decided to take legal action against people who defame me/my brand without any factual information. They do this for clicks, likes and views but it is extremely detrimental to all the hard work I’ve continuously put in over the years,” Betty revealed.

“There have to be consequences for such malicious actions. I will no longer tolerate such spiteful, evil-intentioned, fake and false stories against me.”
