MANILA, Philippines – Entertainment writer Chito Alcid filed complaints against feisty talent manager Annabelle Rama on Thursday.

This comes after Rama tried to hit Alcid using a cane during the wake of Comedy King Dolphy at the Heritage Park in Taguig last July 13.
Alcid, along with lawyer Lorna Kapunan, charged Rama of grave coercion, slander and attempted murder.
Last July 18, Alcid announced his legal steps after his controversial scuffle with Rama last month.
He also filed a blotter report against Rama on July 16, saying he will not let this injustice pass without having the talent manager held liable.
In his past interview with ABS-CBN News, Alcid said the incident during Dolphy’s wake was not the first time that Rama undermined him.
“Ayaw ko sana ng ganitong kaguluhan sa buhay pero grabe siya. Alam naman ng lahat kung sino si Annabelle Rama... nilait niya ako, binastos, minura, tinangka pang saksakin,” he said.
“Bastos siya, walang modo, mahilig sa eksenang ganyan. Sukang-suka na sa’yo ang industriya. Ikaw ang pambansang kahihiyan,” he added. – with a report from Mario Dumaual, ABS-CBN News
