Piolo pinatos ang nang-insulto sa kanyang pagka-lalaki
(Pilipino Star Ngayon) - January 22, 2019 - 12:00am

SEEN: Mas matitindi ang mga intriga at kontrobersya na pinag­daanan at nalampasan noon ni Piolo Pascual kaya hindi na nito dapat pinatulan at hinamon ng suntukan ang ano­nymous basher na nang-insulto sa pagkalalake niya.

SCENE: Ang legal counsel ni Kris Aquino ang sumagot sa mabigat na akusasyon ni Gretchen Barretto na tinulungan ng former TV host-turned-web star na bumaba ang buwis na babayaran ng businesswoman na si Alice Eduardo noon ang kanyang kapatid na si Noynoy Aquino ang pangulo ng Pilipinas.

SEEN: Ito ang official statement ng legal counsel ni Kris Aquino tungkol sa isyu na pinasabog ni Gretchen Barretto noong Biyernes, January 18, nang gabi.

First, our client did not intervene for Ms. Eduardo in any pending tax case.

Second, our client is a friend of Ms. Eduardo for seven years already, and she knows her to be a law abiding citizen. However, the personal relationship of our client with Ms. Eduardo does not extend to her business interests.

Ms. Aquino has been in the entertainment industry for three decades, and in those three decades, the Filipino people are witnesses to her tireless dedication, hard work, and commitment to her craft, whether as a movie actress, game show host, talk show presenter, or a trusted product endorser.

Ms. Aquino prides herself with the fact that, from the time she first entered the industry, she has faithfully obeyed and adhered to the rule imposed by her mother, former President Cory Aquino: TO REPORT HER INCOME ACCURATELY AND PAY TAXES TO THE LAST CENTAVO. It is through the responsible paying of taxes that she may honor the support given to her by the Filipino people.

The certified and published tax records of our client prove that, from 2008 to 2015, she has ranked among the country’s top taxpayers.

In fact, in 2011, she was the number 1 individual taxpayer in the country. We reiterate that our client did not and will never aid, abet, or tolerate any tax evasion by anyone.

Individuals using social media to cause unjust vexation against our client, Ms. Aquino, should first do their due diligence when levying accusations about tax compliance, especially when they are not a party to any of the cases filed by our client, or those filed against our client.

SCENE: Negatibo ang mga reaksyon sa pag-akyat ni former PNP Chief Ronaldo “Bato” dela Rosa sa boxing ring at sa pagwawagayway nito ng championship belt ni Senator Manny Pacquiao dahil pinagbintangan siya na ginagamit ang Pacquiao-Broner fight para ikampanya ang kanyang senatorial bid sa midterm elections sa May 2019.
