MANILA, Philippines - Talent manager Annabelle Rama lashed out at former actress Nadia Montenegro during their first face-to-face encounter at the Quezon City Prosecutor’s Office on Tuesday.
The preliminary investigation of the 2 libel cases Montenegro filed against Rama ended up in chaos, with the latter screaming: “Sinungaling ka hayop ka! Baboy ka!”
Montenegro’s 2 kids walked out the prosecutor’s office in tears because of the incident.
They were soon followed by an agitated Rama, who passed by them along the corridor.
“Alyanna, huwag kang umiyak. You tell the truth. Tell the truth. Mga sinungaling, bastos,” Rama said before making her way out of the building.
Rama expressed her rage over the accusations Montenegro has thrown against her.
“Ang suweldo ng anak niya P20,000, ano, kukupit ko ba ‘yon? Hoy, Nadia, nagsisisi talaga ako tinanggap ko ‘yung anak mo ‘day. Susmaryosep ‘day. Ipinapa-release niya sa akin, hoy, manigas ka,” she said.
She added: “Magpa-drug test ka [Nadia]. Baka mali na ang ininom mong drugs. Magpa-check up ka sa utak mo, baka ang turnilyo mo maluwag na, sinugaling.”
Montenegro, meanwhile, has expressed dismay over the incident.
“Nasa korte na ganon pa rin, nagwawala, minumura ako, muntik pa akong sapukin,” she said.
Asked to comment about her ongoing battle for her children, who were allegedly abused by Rama, Montenegro replied: “Kung puwede nga wala na lang sa korte, ibang laban na lang.” – Report from Marie Lozano, ABS-CBN News
