Ara Mina filed a libel case against her half-sister Cristine Reyes to “teach her a lesson.”
Ara Mina is suing her half-sister Cristine Reyes for libel and grave coercion after learning from their relatives that the latter is speaking unfavorably against her over the remaining balance for a house they bought for their mother.
In an interview by ABS-CBNNews.com, Ara Mina revealed that Reyes wanted her SUV as payment for the remaining balance for the said Quezon City townhouse.
“Sinasabi niya bayaran ko siya. Hindi ko siya kailangan bayaran kasi ako naghulog ng bahay ng mommy ko. Hindi ko alam kung ano ang sinasabi niya, kasi nasa pangalan niya yung deed of sale. Siya yung nag-down ng P1 million, ako yung naghulog ng P2.3 million,” she said after filing the case at the Quezon City fiscal’s office on Wednesday afternoon, April 18.
Furthermore, Ara Mina showed to the press some text messages allegedly sent to her by Reyes since Holy Week:
“Kung ayaw niyo manggulo ako sa buhay niyo, bayaran utang niyo sa akin. Kung wala kayo pangbayad, ibigay niyo hinhingi ko [referring to Ara's SUV].”
And the message why she is suing her half-sister for libel:
“I’m sure ibebenta mo ‘yang laspag mong katawan na pinagsawaan na ng lahat. Daig pa aso sa sobrang kati.”
Ara pointed out that the reason why she filed the case against Cristine is to “teach her a lesson.”
“Para maturuan siya ng leksiyon, kasi hindi na tama yung ginagawa niya. Mahirap sa ’kin ‘tong gagawin ko dahil sikat siya ngayon, ayoko siyang masira. Pero masyado niya nang hinahamak yung pagkatao ko, niyuyurakan na niya.” she added.
