Todd’s wife Shemara, is also to return to court on the said day for reportedly assaulting the entertainer’s girlfriend, Aneka McDonald during a second fight at the wholesale.
The matters were set for mention yesterday, but were rescheduled after Blak Ryno and his female companion did not appear. The artiste’s attorney, Patrick Peterkin, told the court that his client who was recently involved in a motorcycle accident had a medical appointment.
The accused persons had their bail extended by Senior Magistrate Judith Pusey.
According to the police statement, the entertainer and Todd reportedly got involved in a fight after Anderson reportedly issued death threats to Todd.
During the fight Anderson reportedly pulled a knife at Todd. However, Todd only suffered a bruise to the top section of his back.
The female companions of both men who were present during the altercation reportedly got involved in fight of their own when McDonald reportedly went back inside the supermarket to search for her boyfriend’s jewellery after his fight.
It is alleged that Todd’s wife attacked her and used her fingers to inflict bruises to McDonald’s face and neck.
According to Todd’s statement, the entertainer attacked and accused him of not playing his songs in the club — The Building — where Todd is a manager.
