Repost: Nadine Lustre and Legal Camp Not Bothered by Lawsuit of Viva

Nadine Lustre and her legal counsel, Atty. Lorna Kapunan, are not bothered by the breach of contract suit filed by Viva Artists Agency (VAA) against the actress stemming from her decision to terminate her management contract. 

“We welcome the complaint and we are confident that the truth will come out about VAA being predatory, oppressive and abusive not only of Nadine but its many other talents,” Kapunan told ABS-CBN News Friday night, shortly after Viva’s announcement that its talent management firm filed the complaint before the Quezon City Regional Trial Court.

VAA alleged that Lustre, who unilaterally revoked her management contract last January, violated her “valid and existing agency and management agreement by contracting independently with advertisers, promoters, and other third parties, in utter disregard of the exclusivity of her contract.”

It also reiterated that Lustre remains its exclusive artist until June 2029, based on valid contractual agreements. 

Kapunan, however, disputed Viva’s stand and insisted it was the entertainment group that should be sued for breach of contract.

“The contract is an Agency contract and Nadine is the Principal — and it is the right of the Principal to terminate the Agent when it is not performing its commitments under the Agency Agreement,” Kapunan said.

“We are prepared to prove VAA’s material breach of the contract. We are likewise prepared to show that VAA is guilty of tortious third party interference by its threatening/ pressuring third parties dealing with Nadine in good faith and scaring them with potential court cases.”

Kapunan also cited Lustre’s undertakings, separate from VAA, since the start of 2020. 

“Nadine is now self-managing which she has every right to do especially during this difficult pandemic,” she said. “It is her prerogative to continue to earn without VVA getting an unconscionable amount in agency fees which it does not deserve. This is not Nadine’s fight alone it is for all talents/artists who are similarly situated.”

Aside from her music recording, Lustre has had a steady stream of endorsement jobs this year, and has remained with ABS-CBN.

    2. yes 10 yrs contract is ridiculous. pero siguro naman bago siya mag sign binasa niya naman yung terms sa contract niya, medyo fishy lang kung kelan hindi nag renew ng contract si james reid chaka niya gustong umalis, its all because of him halata namang gusto lang bumuntot ni nadine dun sa tao eh, echosera pang abusive ang viva according to her fantards. magpakatotoo nga kayo nadines.

    3. lets face it, hindi sila makikilala kung hindi sila hawak ng viva. Syempre hindi ka magkakaroon ng successful career kung mabilis ka lang imanage ng Viva.

  7. Bakit ngayon lang siya feeling violated nung nagkapangalan na siya. She got paid with these contracts that she signed. Saan siya na violate. Buti nga she was given a chance by viva. Being plain faced qnd so so talent. Well she is so different n nga.

    3. Sumugal talaga Viva kay Nadine. Mahilig ang Viva sa halfies at mestisahin. Kung wala kang foreign blood, dapat may talent ka in singing. Pero gaya ng sinabi mo, so-so lang talaga si girl. Maswerte sa agency kasi napush siya, nakapasok sa ABS, nabigyan ng primetime teleserye. Malas ng Viva sa kanya at sa ex niya.

      Delete
    4. sa totoo lang , naging reklamador kasi na inlove. Hindi na niya priority ang showbiz, priority nila ang lovelife. So dapat magpakasal na sila ni James at iwan na ang showbiz for good.

  8. Question lang, what if manalo sa kaso na to ang viva? Ano mangyayari magiging under pa din sa kanila si nadine? So bibigyan pa din nila ng work after since it’s part of the contract?

    2. No. Penalty kay nadine, magbayad sya.

      Delete
    3. Breach of contract. May termination clause naman sa mga contract, usually buy-out ang option pag gusto na talaga tapusin. Yung amount, depende sa usapan ng party ni artist at ni agency. May standard si agency na amount, though dahil kontrata nga, nagnegotiate na niyan malamang si artist. Magiging abusive/onerous yung contract if wala Yun or si agency Lang ang nagset. Pero siguro Naman inexplain kay Nadz ng manager at lawyer niya yung clauses dun bago nagkapirmahan.

      Yung sinasabi ni Atty Kapulong na may instances of intimidation from Viva to suppress Nadine's independent projects, na sa kanila ang burden of proof. Mahihirapan sila niyan panigurado. And kung ikaw yung company na kukuha kay Nadine, for example, may project at kalagitnaan bigla siyang umayaw, di mo mahahabol si Viva. Kasi dapat kay Viva ka lumapit, not Nadine.

      Kung manalo si Ate Nadz, yung kinita niya while 'self-managing', sa kanya na yun. Walang hati si Viva. Pwede na rin Niya ipanull yung contract Niya. Kapag manalo si Viva, magbabayad siya ng damages niyan, plus yung kinita Niya may share si Viva. May repercussions din yan after. Mahihirapan siya makakuha ng projects. Priority yung may agency, unless seasoned actor ka or may following and casual fans ka.

      All in all, nasa nature siya ng contract. Pag nilabas nila yung contact, dun makikita kung sino ang lamang.

    4. 4:30 baka. pero baka demoted siya sa viva lineup.

    5. Pwedeng ang prayer ng Viva sa korte is magbayad ng penalty si Nadine and compel her to abide by the terms of her contract or dissolve the contract and still ask her to pay a hefty penalty. Ang hirap ata ipilit pa na ituloy ang kontrata e wala na yung good working relationship ng isa’t isa.

    6. depende sa bossing nila yung terms, mukhang mabait yung vic mukhang bibigyan siya ng chance.

    7. I think since banas na ang Viva sa girl na yan, conditions are ipapabuyout ng Viva kay Nadine yung contract plus pay penalty plus pay for the legal fees. Ubos ang pera lol. Pero dapat lang yan para di tularan. Di pwedeng dahil gustong bumuntot sa ex eh lalayas sa agency.

  14. I think kaya 10 years ang mga kontrata dahil i build up ng Viva ang career ng talent nila. It would take a couple of years para sumikat ka ng todo. Alangan naman in 3 years ay bigla ka ng sikat.

  15. Gusto lang bumuntot kay James at mukhang guguho ang mundo niya pag nawala yung lalaki niya. Kaya lahat na babanggain makuha lang gusto niya. This is bordering on career suicide but Nadine (and James) have always been stubborn all along. Nalunod sa isang basong tubig.

    Her legal counsel if portraying her to be a crusader of the abused talents of Viva. Umiiling na lang siguro sina Anne, Sarah, Vice, etc.

  19. i think ang "walang utang na loob" phrase is so toxic. pinagtrabahuhan nya din naman yan ah and kumita din naman ang agency sa kanya. what if the agency hinders her growth as an artist, as a person? what if she has some projects that she likes because it will develop her creativity but the agency stops her from doing it and because the agency thinks it will taint her "image"? baka hindi nya na talaga gusto magpa cute nalang forever para sa masa kaya nag out na siya. i think its really brave of her to go head-to-head with Viva.

    2. Sabi sa mga news outlet, first contract was from 2009 to 2014 na pinirmahan ng mga parents niya for her. In 2014, she (Nadine herself), signed a 10-year contract, so end noon is 2024. But in 2015, she signed another contract, extending her existing contract to 2029. WHY?!!! Iyon ngang 10 years, super tagal na for a contract, tapos ie-extend pa ng another 5 years, 1 year after na i-sign niya iyong existing contract. Noong latter half of 2019, maganda naman ang feedback niya about Viva. Tapos by 2020, kumakalas na siya sa Viva at negative na feedback niya about Viva. Parang ang nag-trigger nito ay ang di pag-renew ng contract ni James sa Viva. Naku, Nadine! Bakit mo binigyan ng malaking sakit ng ulo ang sarili mo?

  21. She's beautiful now but masyado lumaki ang ulo. Kahit wag na legal yung mere fact na gumaganyan ganyan siya nakakawalang gana.

  22. Pinagtyagaan siya since 2009. From Pop Girls, several GMA stints, movie appearances (bit roles) and then sumugal ang Viva in 2014, with Diary ng Panget at yun, nag take off na ang career nya. After OTWOL, nag flop na nga lang lahat ng projects nya (Til I Met You, This Time, Never Not Love You, Ulan, Indak. Kahit hindi sila bagay sa show, inilagay sila sa showtime para lang visible pa rin) lahat yun, with the help of VIVA. Ewan ko ah, Sarah G, Anne Curtis wil not be the star to today if not because of Boss Vic of VIVA. From nobody to somebody ika nga. If hindi maganda ang patakbo ng VIVA, baket marame taga Star Magic ang pumili sa kanila para magpa assist sa career nila? Like Xian Lim, Julia Barretto, Ryza Cenon etc.?

    3. Well, nakakalula iyong 10-year contract sa tagal. Pero kaya yata ganoon katagal kasi kasama na doon ang pag-build up nila sa artist and it usually take years para mapasikat ang isang artista at manatiling sikat.
