Darren Espanto’s mother filed cyber libel charges against JK Labajo.
JK LABAJO – The mother of the Kapamilya singer Darren Espanto filed cyber libel charges against rock star JK Labajo following the alleged “gayness” post.
Online feud between “The Voice Kids” former grand finalists Darren Espanto and JK Labajo started off following the controversial alleged “gayness” Tweet of the latter which at one point became the hottest issue in the show business industry.
Labajo denied it saying that his account was hacked but Espanto and his family know better than tolerating the bullying against their child. With this, it was just recently confirmed that the mother of Espanto indeed filed cyber libel charges against Labajo last March of this year.
According to Espanto’s Legal Counsel Atty. Lorna Kapunan, there was an ongoing case filed last March with two hearings already but the accused was not able to appear. Kapunan said that the mother filed it because at that time, Espanto was still a minor.
She said, “Recently, when we checked the status of the case, nalaman namin na kumuha siya ng abogado at nagpa-reopen ng case. So, nasa office of the City Prosecutor yan kung ire-reopen ang case. Pero may tentative hearing scheduled on April 12.”
Kapunan furthered, “I’ve met the parents and they have a very strong sense of right and wrong.And to destroy ones reputation at the very young age, I think is wrong. So, they came to us and ask us kung merong legal remedies, ang sabi namin ‘Oo, Cyber libe yan’. We’ve seen the evidence here and the evidence is so strong and there can be no deniability na galing kay JK yung posting.”
