Singer Nina clears up alleged maltreatment towards her former assistant


060511-nina_main.jpgIn an interview with Push.com.ph last June 1, soul siren Nina clarified recent reports, accusing her of maltreating her former road manager/personal assistant for three years. Nina said that there was no truth to the rumors that she didn’t pay her assistant enough salary despite the difficult nature of her job. “Yung [sinasabing] 200 pesos lang ang binibigay ko sa kanya ‘pag may out of town show ako, pamasahe niya lang ‘yan pauwi kasi Laguna siya nakatira eh. Tapos meron siyang 100 pesos na meal allowance, regardless kung may binigay na libreng pagkain sa crew ko, hindi ko na yun binabawi. Plus 10,000 pesos yung pinakasweldo niya na kung wala man akong show, bayad siya,” she began.
 
Instead of taking offense, Nina was clearly amused by the whole thing especially because she knew that it was just part of Nyoy Volante’s hate campaign against her. “Actually, galing siya sa kampo ni Nyoy Volante, sila talaga yung may kakilala sa kanya. Tapos naaksidente siya, nakaladkad siya ng trike. Kanino ka hihingi ng tulong ‘di ba? Kina Volante. Pero parang inignore siya, so ang nangyari hindi siya nakapasok. Tapos dahil hindi siya nakapasok, tinanggal siya sa trabaho. Kwinento sa akin yun nung assistant nung minsang nagkita kami sa isang mall show ko. Sabi ko, O sige, walang problema, bibigyan kita ng trabaho. Magkakilala naman kami dati so walang kaso sa akin. Pero ngayon parang ako pa yung nabaliktad ‘di ba?
 
Nina was just grateful that she had the chance to give her side of the story. But she stressed that she doesn’t need to prove anything especially in light of her ongoing estafa case against Nyoy, who’s yet to settle his two-million-peso worth of debt from her. “actually for me maliit na bagay lang yun. kasi isa lang naman ang nagsasabi na minamaltrato ko siya, pero yung kabuuan ng mga taong nakakakilala sa akin at nakakasama nila ako, alam nila kung anong klase akong tao. Kung ito yung way ng kampo ng Volante para umangat sa buhay at umingay, hindi siya darating sa paroroonan niya. If it works for him, bahala na siya. Basta ako, as long as alam kong wala akong nasasagasaang ibang tao, wala ako dapat ika-worry. Makakatulog ako ng mahimbing sa gabi.”
 
As for her personal assistant who has been spreading lies about her, Nina hopes that she would realize that nothing good would come out of her actions. “Sana matuto siyang tumanaw ng utang na loob. Pero hindi naman to the extent na, ‘Ay kailangan maging mabait ako sa taong ito dahil sa utang na loob ko sa kanya.’ Kung minaltrato ka, e ‘di umalis ka, pero kung hindi naman, pag-alis mo, ibaon mo sa sarili mo yung kabutihan na ginawa sa’yo at i-share mo sa ibang tao. Huwag naman yung siraan mo pa. Besides sana sa authorities talaga siya nagsumbong kung sinasabi niyang hindi ko siya trinato ng maayos at hindi sa isang gossip column. At hindi na rin siya sana umabot ng three years sa poder ko,” she finally stated.
