MANILA, Philippines — The concubinage case filed by Kapuso actress Jelai Andres against her husband Jon Gutierrez, also known as King Badger, is now in the Quezon City Regional Trial Court. 

In a statement sent to Philstar.com by Jelai’s camp, Jon surrendered to the trial court, posting bail for his release. 

According to Jelai’s lawyer Faye Singson, the vlogger turned actress deserves justice in the case. 

“Nararapat lamang lang na makamit ni Jelai ang hustisya’t katarungan, sapagkat hindi naging madali ang pinagdaanan niya. Tunay ngang siya ay nahirapan, at matinding trauma ang naranasan niya dahil sa sakit na dulot ng pagtataksil ni King Badger at Yumi."

Jelai filed the concubinage case, as well as violence against women and children, against Jon last year when she found out that her husband is in an intimate relationship with then-minor Yumi Garcia. 

"Ang kasal ay isang sakramento, wag nating gawing normal ang pakiki-apid. Nawa’y maging isang leksyon ito sa mga may mister na pasaway at sa mga babaeng walang pakundangan makipag-relasyon sa mga lalaking alam naman nilang may asawa at mas matatapang pa sa tunay na asawa," Jelai said last year. 

In an interview with Philstar.com, Atty. Singson said that their camp filed a motion for issuance of hold-departure order. 

“Para maiwasan na tumakas si Jon sa labas ng bansa, dahil ito ay UK passport-holder,” she said. 

Jon’s arraignment is scheduled tomorrow morning, March 17.
