Her encounter with the Facebook rapist seems to be haunting Real Goboza host Pearl Thusi. After Pearl was apprehended by the police on the red carpet during an SABC1 event for questioning relating to the Facebook rapist, she allegedly promised to show police the house that convicted Facebook rapist Thabo Bester took her to in Carletonville.
A source says instead of arriving to take them to the house, Pearl apparently pitched at Hillbrow police station with a lawyer. “Pearl’s been giving authorities the run-around. This is too suspicious. What is it that she’s hiding?” asks the source.
The police are also apparently looking for a weapon used by the Facebook rapist that is apparently in Pearl’s possession, according to our source.
Ironically, in an interview with a weekly magazine Pearl indicated that she did not return the knife that Thabo Bester threatened her with. When called for comment her phone rang endlessly. We then sent her an SMS to query the allegation but she had not responded by the time of going to print.

How smooth was this Thabo Bester character to seduce multiple women over Facebook? I wonder how much flattery he used on them or whether he had some other special skills of seduction. On the other hand you can just imagine what makes a supposed celebrity model like Pearl Thusi fall for a Facebook character like this. Surely she has enough men chasing her to fall for the previously unknown Facebook rapist.
