17 May – After failing to release her statement of apology towards the family of Eleila Santos, Ellen Adarna is now facing several charges including libel.
As reported on Rappler, earlier, the mother of the 17-year-old Eleila, Myra Santos confirmed that she has filed cases against the actress after the latter failed to apologise to her daughter for accusing the teenager of taking photos of Adarna while they were having a meal at a restaurant.
The lawsuit stated that Adarna has violated the R.A 7610 (Anti-Child Abuse Law) and R.A. 10175 (Anti-Cyber Crime Law).
Eleila previously addressed the allegation made by Adarna, saying that she didn't do what was said of her, and that she was only taking photos of her food and the surrounding area.
Prior to the lawsuit, Santos took to social media, and demanded for Adarna to apologise for her accusations. However, instead of responding to the post, Adarna instead shared a photo of her having a pedicure, and the words "Wait for it" written across the picture.
On the other hand, the actress seemed unfazed with the lawsuit, as she shares a video of her shaving boyfriend John Lloyd Cruz's head.
