MANILA, Philippines -- Iwa Moto dared actress Jodi Sta. Maria to file a libel case against her after she revealed that Sta. Maria had an affair with her  former boyfriend, Michael "Mike" Ablan, two years ago while Sta. Maria and husband, Pampi Lacson, were still together.

In an interview with "Cristy Fer Minute" hosted by Cristy Fermin on Tuesday afternoon, Moto said she has evidence to prove that she's telling the truth.

"Kaya siguro hindi siya nagsasalita kasi alam niyang totoo ang sinasabi ko. Kasi kung nagsisinungaling ako ay pwede niya akong idemanda ng libel. Pero malakas po ang loob ko dahil alam ko sa aming dalawa kung sino ang nagsisinungaling at sino ang nagsasabi ng totoo," said Moto, who is now in a romantic relationship with Lacson.

"At kung ebidensiya lang po ay may ebidensiya po ako at 'yun siguro ang kinakatakot niya na ilabas ko...kasi naniniwala pa din po siya na inosente siya. Hindi porke't mukhang inosente ay inosente na siya," she added.

In an earlier interview with Fermin on "Paparazzi," Moto clarified that she didn't cause the breakup of Sta. Maria and Lacson. 

She said she met Lacson two years ago to confront him about Sta. Maria's alleged affair with Ablan.

Before the interview ended, Moto also revealed that Sta. Maria has found a new love.
