NAG-FILE ng kaso ang Viva Artists Agency (VAA) laban sa aktres na si Nadine Lustre. Isinampa ang kaso sa Quezon City Regional Trial Court.
Narito ang nilalaman ng official statement na inisyu ng Viva:
“VIVA Artists Agency, Inc. (“VAA”) filed today a lawsuit against its talent, Nadine Lustre (“Nadine”) before the Regional Trial Court of Quezon City.
“The lawsuit was filed because, early this year, Nadine violated her valid and existing Agency and Management Agreement with VAA, by contracting independently with advertisers, promoters, and other third parties, in utter disregard of the exclusivity of her contract with VAA,”simulang bahagi ng official statement.
“Thus, the case seeks, among others, to stop Nadine from continuously violating her Agency and Management Agreement with VAA and for Nadine to honor her contract. Nadine originally entered into a 5-year contract with VAA in 2009. The contract was renewed in 2014 for another 10 years or until 30 June 2024.
“In 2015, said contract was extended for another 5 years, or until 29 June 2029. During this period VAA developed, built, and nurtured Nadine’s career to make her one of the most sought after artists in the entertainment industry.
“Through VAA’s efforts, Nadine’s career took-off in 2014 owing to the Viva-produced blockbuster movie “Diary ng Panget” starring Nadine and James Reid, which introduced the “JADINE” loveteam to the public.
“On the heels of the success of “Diary ng Panget”, VAA negotiated for JADINE to be featured in ABS-CBN shows to promote the loveteam, resulting in the record-breaking teleserye, “On The Wings of Love”, more popularly called by fans as “OTWOL”.
“Despite her continued success as an exclusive artist of VAA for almost a decade, Nadine still chose to violate and disregard her contract with VAA.
“Ms. Lustre should honor and respect the sanctity of contracts and that third parties are put on notice that any direct dealings with Ms. Lustre for her services as a performing artist or endorser shall be in violation of Ms. Lustre’s contract with VAA,” pahayag ni Atty Chino Paolo Z. Roxas, ang legal counsel ng VAA.
