When you’re a celebrity, there will always be eyes watching your every move. But for actress-motel heiress Ellen Adarna, she has had enough and did something about it.

As she and boyfriend John Lloyd Cruz stepped into a ramen place in Makati City yesterday for a quiet meal, she was startled when she noticed a girl with her phone in hand. Adarna assumed that the girl was taking a video of her from afar.


So as a way to fight back, Adarna did the same thing to the girl and took a video of her, as seen in this Instagram Story.

Adarna did not stop there. She then posted another video, pointing that the girl looked conscious when she found out that a video was being taken of her by the sexy star.


“Oh yan ha… you know the feeling… uncomfy noh?” Adarna wrote. “When you PAP us, we PAP you too! #nasa resto eh. it’s a tie.”

The actress then had some words for the girl via another series of Stories. “Girl, your reaction to the reaction explains it all,” Adarna started off. “You look so guilty, you didn’t even know what to do: if you should pick up your chopsticks, you look so conscious, because you panicked, because you know I was doing what you’re doing.”

She then described the girl as rude, telling that before their food arrived, the stranger across was already taking pictures of her. “In my head, I wanted to go to her and ask her to delete the video,” Adarna said on what she could have done.

“So instead of getting bad trip and all, I just decided to reciprocate and did what she did,” the actress went on. “So fair lang (only).” 

Going further, Adarna said, “So you can justify what you want to justify, and I can do what I want also because I am patol (fighting back) like that.”

“Girl, you can act like a victim and know that there’s always two sides of a story and people will always choose a side,” the actress further said. Her final words were: “So deal with your bashers, because me, I can handle them pretty well and good luck to you.”

But the girl, named Eleila, defended herself from Adarna’s accusations. Reacting via her Twitter account, Eleila said, “So we were casually eating ramen and this happens…We didn’t notice her or even knew it was her,” she said. “I just wanted to story our food.”


To prove her point, the girl uploaded a video originally from her own Instagram Story to justify that she was not taking photos or videos of the actress. She added in another tweet:”Kami talaga yung na #Paparazzimoves (We were the real victims of #Paparazzimoves).”

Eleila said she took a video of her food and wanted to show the interiors of the restaurant as well. “I did not panic at all cause why would I? I didn’t even see her take a video of us so…,” she continued.

She went on to say that it was the only video she took, and admitted that she did not know Adarna and the issue going on with her.

“I don’t follow her in any social media account so I was really surprised when we were on her story,” Eleila said. She pointed out that in Adarna’s video, she was not even directly looking toward the actress. The girl also stressed that it would have been best if Adarna went up to her straight and asked if she was taking a video of her.

The girl also did not back down and had this to say to the sexy actress: “As an artist I think you should be professional upon solving such things.” She added: “It’s clearly not right for her to simply assume without knowing our side as well. What she did is not only unethical but illegal as well.”
