Question posted in the Criminal Law category relating to Limpopo

Last night my best friends(no longer friends) ex boyfriend asked me if she ever cheated on him during the relationship. I said yes that she talked to her ex during their relationship. He called her and asked her about it and she confirmed it. I also found out that same night that she had been bad mouthing me our entire friendship and constantly lied to me and told lies about me to others. I sent her a text last night that said "f*ck you and your lies" and I blocked her on everything that same night, i didn't say anything else to her. Today I got a text from her sister over Facebook that said I should keep my nose out of their business or else they will ruin my career and future studies if I don't leave my old best friend alone(I had no contact with her after the message I sent and I blocked her, I didn't harass her in anyway). I am studying psychology and I'm still early in my career I am afraid they will go through with the threat and try and damage my career and future security. I want to know how I can prevent this?
