Motsi Mabuse in cryptic post amid warning from ex’s lawyer: ‘When they go low, we go high’ | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV
Strictly’s Motsi Mabuse, 41, took to Twitter on Sunday morning to share a vague message about not being “sucked into negativity” and thanking her fans for “standing up” for her. The dancer’s post comes amid reports that her ex-husband, Timo Kulczak, 45, could take legal action over her new autobiography, Finding My Own Rhythm.
Sharing a photograph of her outfit from Saturday night’s instalment of the BBC dance show, Motsi penned: “When magic moments like last night happen, I often reflect and say thank you universe.
“I left the studio feeling so thankful for every experience in life that has brought me to where I am today, I lean towards the light and love. Happy Sunday you cannot fake energy!”
Five minutes later, Motsi added a follow-up message in which she cryptically thanked her fans for their support.
She said: “Ps I used to protect and defend myself the first years on strictly but there’s motsivation community out there.

“Thank you guys for the taking the time to stand up for me, please don’t be sucked into by negativity!! When they go low, we go high.” (sic)
Shortly after Strictly concluded last night, an interview with Timo was published in which he denied her claims that he was “controlling” during their marriage.
In her autobiography, she claims Timo ignored her desire to become a mother, chose what she ate, took charge of her money and refused to break up with her.
Now, Timo has said he is “deeply disappointed and hurt” by Motsi’s comments and insists that he doesn’t “feel [he] was controlling” but rather thought he was “organising and being helpful”.
Motsi Mabuse’s representatives have been contacted for comment.
Motsi and Timo met at a dance tournament in England and she moved from South Africa to Germany to be with him aged just 18.
They married in 2003 but divorced in 2014 after living apart for one year.
Motsi is now married to her dance partner Evgenij Voznyuk and they share a four-year-old daughter.
In her book, Motsi wrote that she split from Timo during a trip to Thailand. She said: “I told him, once and for all, that I was leaving.
“We fought every day, but I refused to back down this time. I wasn’t in love with Timo any more — and I hadn’t been for a while.”
She also said that the pair had managed to remain friends following their separation.
Strictly Come Dancing continues tonight at 7.20pm.
