Viva sues Nadine Lustre for breach of contract
MANILA, Philippines — Viva Artists Agency (VAA) has sued actress Nadine Lustre for supposed breach of her exclusive contract.
In a report published by Bandera, citing an official statement from VAA, the agency filed the lawsuit against the actress before the Quezon City Regional Trial Court on Friday.
The report cited that Nadine had violated her contract with Viva “by contracting independently with advertisers, promoters, and other third parties, in utter disregard of the exclusivity of her contract with VAA.”
Nadine has been with Viva since 2009.
In 2014, her contract was renewed for another 10 years, or until June 2024, Bandera reported.
The following year, her contract with Viva was further extended until 2029.
In January, Nadine’s legal counsel Atty. Lorna Kapunan said that the actress has separated with Viva, and is now “self-managed.”
“She shall directly manage her affairs from now on, and bookings and inquiries may be directly addressed to her,” Kapunan previously said.
