NAGLABAS NA ng desisyon ang Quezon City Regional Trial Court tungkol sa kasong isinampa ng Viva Artists Agency laban kay Nadine Lustre.
Kinasuhan ng Viva si Nadine noong December 2020 pagkatapos nitong labagin ang nakasaad sa pinirmahan niyang kontrata sa VAA.
Naka-saad sa inilabas na desisyon ng Regional Trial Court of Quezon City pagkatapos ng pagdinig na umabot din ng halos 7 buwan, tanging ang VIVA Artists Agency lang ang puwedeng makipag-negotiate at tanging may hawak ng mga business deals para kay Nadine.
“The Regional Trial Court of Quezon City issued today a Resolution granting the Petition for Interim Measures of Protection filed by VIVA Artists Agency, Inc. directing Nadine Lustre to honor and uphold her contractual obligations with VIVA and to cease and desist from entering into contracts and/or performing acts for third parties for her services as an artist/ endorser without VIVA’s consent and participation.
“Court orders Nadine Lustre to Cease and Desist from Violating Contract with VIVA,” laman ng desisyon ng korte.
“VIVA filed the Petition when Nadine, through her lawyer, unilaterally revoked her agreement with VIVA, claiming that the contract is unconscionable, oppressive, and illegal.
“In its Resolution, the Court found Nadine’s contract to be valid and subsisting. According to the Court, ‘ petitioner [VIVA] has established its unequivocal right arising from the subject Revised Agency and Management Agreement. It has established that respondent [Nadine] contracted with them to act as sole and exclusive manager for respondent’s exercise of profession in the show business.
“The contracts entered into by Nadine with VIVA were executed with the assistance and presence of her parents at the time she was a minor. Nadine’s contracts with VIVA mutually benefitted from their contractual relationship.
“The Court further said that the contract between the parties is the law between them and Nadine cannot take the law into her own hands and unilaterally terminate her contract with VIVA,” bahagi ng statement.
Inihayag din ng legal counsel ng VIVA Artists Agency na si Atty. Paolo Roxas na masasabi rin na paglabag sa existing contract ang pagtanggap ni Nadine ng trabaho ng hindi dumaan sa VIVA Artists Agency na siyang may hawak ng kanyang management career.
Aniya, “With the Court’s ruling, Nadine is precluded from entering into and/or performing contracts involving her services as an artist/endorser, without the consent and participation of VIVA. As provided by her contract, any issue raise by Nadine against VIVA should be the subject of arbitration proceedings.”
