Matthew and Sonia Booth not getting divorced anytime soon

By Rorisang Modiba

Former footballer Matthew Booth and his wife Sonia have had their divorce delayed because he hasn’t handed over the necessary financial documents.

They began the divorce process after Sonia found out Matthew was cheating on her. 

“I was horrified when Sonia told me of many other women, especially around 2012 when he [Matthew] was living at their Cape Town property while he was playing for Ajax Cape Town,” a source said.

“She stayed behind in Johannesburg because she didn’t want to uproot their eldest son in the middle of a school year.” 

Sonia wanted the divorce processed as soon as possible, but the process came to a halt because Matthew did not hand over certain documents.

“Booth appealed the court’s decision but later decided to withdraw the appeal. Now he is stalling the process, and he risks another approach of the courts by Sonia to file a motion of contempt of court,” a source said, Fakaza reported.

“The only thing I can think of as a concerned friend is about Sonia’s well-being and how unnecessary the delays are.” 

The source said the divorce could’ve been finalised months ago had the legend submitted financial statements as ordered by the court. 

“Now Sonia knows Booth is hiding a lot more. Why else would he make excuses about submitting the other two-year bank statements the court ordered him to submit?” the source said.
