Celebrity beauty therapist Isabella Burger is spitting fire after Housekeepers actress Kwezi Ndlovu allegedly failed to pay her R2 000 for services she received at Burger’s salon in Sandton, Johannesburg.
Burger claims Ndlovu was pampered with champagne, strawberries, and a one-hour full-body massage, and left feeling rejuvenated – but failed to pay her bill, either in cash or via promotion.
The Bellissimo skincare and beauty boutique owner claims the agreement she made with the actress was that she would give her beauty services worth R2 000.
In exchange, Ndlovu would either pay the fee or post about the boutique on her social media platforms, Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.
“She didn’t do that. [She didn’t even post] a mere Instagram story. She made me very angry because this isn’t a lot of money we’re talking about,” Burger said this week.
Ndlovu, who stars in the second season of Mzansi Magic’s Housekeepers as Thuli Ngubane, could not be reached for comment.
Burger, a self-proclaimed multi millionairess who insists on traveling first class for occasional holidays in Disneyland in the US, says her anger is not only about the fee, but about respect.
“I want that money, no matter how little it is. I own my own business and I have a lot of money. I’m a multimillionaires. This one is disrespectful. I know [the amount] is peanuts, but I want it,” she said.
I also couldn’t contact her directly when my lawyers wanted to trace her.
Isabella Burger added that, even though the actress came to her salon ahead of her birthday in August, Burger’s lawyers have been struggling to locate her since then.
“She came to my spa and had all these fancy services and we agreed that she’d pay me or post about my business. She didn’t. I worked, I gave her a good service, I waxed her v@gina,” said Burger.
She said Ndlovu’s other services included a massage and v@ginal rejuvenation.
“She had a beautiful birthday party. She was popping champagne in Cape Town. I didn’t talk to her directly [when we made the agreement], I spoke to her through her friend. I also couldn’t contact her directly when my lawyers wanted to trace her, because we couldn’t get her contact details.”
Burger’s Bellissimo salon is in Morningside Manor.
