Matapos ang halos pitong buwan, naglabas na ng pasya ang Quezon City Regional Trial Court sa kasong isinampa ng VIVA Artists Agency laban sa aktres na si Nadine Lustre.
Matatandaan na Disyembre ng 2020 nang nagdesisyon ang VIVA Artists Agency na sampahan ng kaso si Nadine matapos labagin ang “valid and existing agency and management contract” nito sa kanila.
Sa nakalap na statement ng PUSH mula sa isang reliable source, naka-saad ang desisyon ng Regional Trial Court of Quezon City na tanging VIVA Artists Agency pa rin ang may hawak ng business deals pagdating kay Nadine Lustre.
“Court orders Nadine Lustre to Cease and Desist from Violating Contract with VIVA
“The Regional Trial Court of Quezon City issued today a Resolution granting the Petition for Interim Measures of Protection filed by VIVA Artists Agency, Inc. directing Nadine Lustre to honor and uphold her contractual obligations with VIVA and to cease and desist from entering into contracts and/or performing acts for third parties for her services as an artist/ endorser without VIVA’s consent and participation,” bahagi ng statement.
“VIVA filed the Petition when Nadine, through her lawyer, unilaterally revoked her agreement with VIVA, claiming that the contract is unconscionable, oppressive, and illegal.
“In its Resolution, the Court found Nadine’s contract to be valid and subsisting. According to the Court, ‘ petitioner [VIVA] has established its unequivocal right arising from the subject Revised Agency and Management Agreement. It has established that respondent [Nadine] contracted with them to act as sole and exclusive manager for respondent’s exercise of profession in the show business.
“The contracts entered into by Nadine with VIVA were executed with the assistance and presence of her parents at the time she was a minor. Nadine’s contracts with VIVA mutually benefitted from their contractual relationship.
“The Court further said 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 with VIVA,” bahagi ng statement.
Sa bahagi rin ng statement, inihayag rin ng legal counsel ng VIVA Artists Agency na si Atty. Paolo Roxas na masasabi rin na paglabag sa existing contract ang pagtanggap ni Nadine ng trabaho ng hindi dumaan sa VIVA Artists Agency na siyang may hawak ng kaniyang management career.
“With the Court’s ruling, Nadine is precluded from entering into and/or performing contracts involving her services as an artist/endorser, without the consent and participation of VIVA. As provided by her contract, any issue raise by Nadine against VIVA should be the subject of arbitration proceedings,” pahayag ng legal counsel ng Viva Artists Agency.
Sa ngayon, isa si Nadine sa mga recording artists ng Careless Music na recording label ni James Reid.
