Even though Jackie didn’t mention any names, Twitter users implicated Romeo Kumalo after the tweet was shared, and the court ruled that speculation spread after Jackie’s tweet.

The commotion started after Lupi shared what seemed to be court papers submitted by Jackie to defend herself in court, in which she allegedly claimed to write fiction.

Jackie hit back at Lupi and threatened to take legal action against him. She also warned him to steer clear of her.

Lupi also dragged Exclusive Books into the mix, urging the retailer to recall Jackie’s book and refund the customers who had bought it.
