During the hearing of a case filed against her scheduled last June 11, Ellen Adarna failed to show up and instead had her legal counsel along with boyfriend John Lloyd Cruz attend the preliminary investigation hearing on her behalf. This was regarding the child abuse and cyber crime case filed against her in Pasig City by Myra Abo Santos, the mother of the 17-year-old tagged and accused by the actress as paparazzi on social media last May.
In the rescheduled hearing last June 25, the actress failed to appear once again and according to tweets by TV Patrol reporter MJ Felipe, the mother of the minor was disappointed by the non-appearance and believed it was a delaying tactic on the part of Ellen’s camp for her to skip the hearings.
“The mother of the minor accused by Ellen Adarna as ‘paparazzi’, Myra Abo Santos expressed her dismay after the hearing this afternoon at the Pasig RTC office of the Prosecutor.”
“I’m very disappointed w/ the turnout of today’s hearing. Ms. Ellen has been given more than 1 month to answer the charges & to ask for a resetting again & for 2 more weeks pa is sobra na. Maybe their play is to delay the case by my quest for justice for my daughter is unwavering.”
Ellen is rumored to be in her ninth month of pregnancy and is expected to give birth any time now.
