This young performer (YP) grew up performing before the public. From innocent lass, who merely wanted to win in a contest, YP is now one of the most sought after singers in the country. In fact, YP even has non-Filipino fans abroad. As a performer, YP can fill up a venue because the audience knows she can deliver. She has proven her impact, both in the movies and endorsements. Amidst all her achievements, YP has remained simple in her ways, her attitude, and her views. Despite the wealth, she keeps a very low profile and hardly flaunts her possessions.
By a twist of fate, someone close (SC) to YP got wind of information that YP is actually being short-changed in her talent fees. For example, the talent fee of YP as stipulated in her contract is allegedly much higher than the payment she's been getting. Thus, if for an endorsement, YP receives around 5M, the real contract says it's 10M. However, the real contract with the real figures is never shown to YP. Another contract that states a lesser amount is the one that is shown to YP, and signed in public. SC discovered the possible anomaly when she got to talk to an insider of a production (IP). When the fee of YP cropped up, SC was surprised at the huge discrepancy in the figures.
Of course, SC wanted to act immediately on the injustice but it placed SC in a dilemma. If SC starts claiming that the contracts are rigged, then the career of YP might be ruined by an orchestrated barrage of negative publicity. After all, the one in charge of paying YP has the machinery to make or break any career. Another sad thing is that the company of IP fears that once it questions the existence of two contracts, some of its talents might be pulled out., and these talents are the prized performers of the company.
Now, will SC assert what is due YP? Will they just keep quiet and not dare rock the boat?
