Amid the libel case threats from her ex-boyfriend Cedric Lee, Vina Morales reiterated that the issue is about their daughter.
Vina recently claimed that Cedric “forcibly detained” their daughter Ceana. After Vina’s interview, Cedric claimed that her statements were “damaging” and threatened to sue Vina on account of her “libelous” statements.
To this, Vina, during the press conference of her upcoming soap Born For You starring Elmo Magalona and Janella Salvador, stressed, “Honestly this is not about me and Cedric eh. This is about my child’s welfare. ‘Wag nating ilihis.”
As a mother, Vina said that her current goal is to watch over her daughter’s welfare and not to malign anyone.
“First of all, galing na sa korte, hindi ko gawa-gawa ito. That he was never issued a copy granting him visitation agreement for 10 days. Walang binigay na ganon sa kanila that is why they are cited in contempt of court violating the visitation agreement,” Vina explained.
But what does she have to say to Cedric’s claim that he never bullied her?
Vina, who is celebrating her 30th year in show business this year, pointed out that she has never been linked to any malicious issue in her entire career.
“Nabalitaan niyo ba na meron akong ginagawang masama sa kapwa ko? Di ba? ‘Yun lang. Wala naman akong sinisiraan dito. Wala akong balak na siraan siya. Ang sa akin lang ang nararamdaman ko at tungkol sa anak ko,” she said.
Meanwhile Vina shared that her daughter Ceana is currently doing well after being returned to their family in court last May.
Despite the case, Vina claimed that “Hindi ako magfa-file ng motion kung wala akong nakikitang change of behavior.”
According to Vina, her daughter was probably “stressed” by what happened especially since she is still a minor.
“Lahat naman tayo kapag ikaw nine days hindi mo makausap ang nanay mo, na sanay na sanay ka na nandyan palagi ang nanay mo. Itu-turn over ka sa korte after nine days sa pamilya ko. Parang namang, kung tayo nga konting problema lang medyo na-stress na tayo eh. So I’m sure she’s stressed,” she said.
Catch Vina, along with Elmo and Janella on Born For You starting this Monday after Dolce Amore.
