Quezon City court finally puts down a decision over Nadine Lustre and VIVA’s case.

NADINE LUSTRE – The Quezon City regional trial court (RTC) finally issued the resolution regarding case between Nadine Lustre and VIVA, June 14.

Actress and singer Nadine Lustre terminated her contract with Viva Artists Agency which ignited conflict and issues eventually leading to a legal battle. Viva boss Vic Del Rosario stressed that under her contract that is up until 2029, she is not allowed to appear in movies of a different company, thus, a lawsuit against her has been filed.

She accordingly violated regulations of her contract and “contracted independently with advertisers, promoters, and other third parties, disregarding her exclusive contract with Viva”. Atty. Lorna Kapunan, legal counsel of Lustre, backfired stating that the contract is oppressive.

This is the first case VIVA encountered versus their artist after being in the industry for almost four decades. And on June 14, the Quezon City regional trial court (RTC) has finally dropped a resolution. It granted the Petition for Interim Measures of Protection filed by VIVA Artists Agency, Inc.

This instructs Nadine to honor her contractual obligations with VIVA and to stop accepting third party contracts and endorsements without the consent of her agency. While Nadine’s camp firmly stated that the contract is unconscionable, oppressive, and illegal, the Resolution conformed, on the other hand, that it is valid and subsisting.

As per the ABS-CBN report, the signing of the contracts was made with the presence of her parents when she was still a minor. The court has accordingly stated that “the contract between the parties is the law between them and Nadine cannot take the law into her own hands and unilaterally terminate her contract.”

And for Kapunan, the Resolution is also a win for Lustre because “Viva was not able to get her hard-earned money during the time of her self-management; no attachment and garnishments to her property and savings.” The actress’ lawyer furthered that the interim protection resolution was only partially granted.

Big stars such as Sarah Geronimo, Anne Curtis, Bela Padilla, Cristine Reyes, Yam Concepcion, Xian Lim, and Matteo Guidicelli are just among the artists under the VIVA management.
