While speaking to Whoopi Goldberg, Doja Cat claimed that she has never met her father, South African actor, Dumisani Dlamini, who starred in Sarafina! alongside Goldberg.
But Dlamini says it's all lies.
"I have been looking for my daughter as well. You mustn't forget these Americans. Americans will always want to have something to cause a stir, so that she stays in the media and is talked about around the world," he said.
He also says that her management has been blocking his attempts to connect with his estranged daughter.
"I have tried to search for my baby and the company that runs her entertainment has been blocking me. They know that if I could get hold of her, maybe she will disappear from the picture … I know my daughter, wherever she is, is looking for me."
He claims they spoke before she blew up.
"She got hold of me. We spoke. We connected. Now, at this time when she is there and on top, she has to grab the whole world['s attention], especially in SA because she is a South African and her daddy is here. It's a made up thing".
