Mrs. Santos called out Adarna for her IG reply, “Instead, you posted a one sided narrative and insisted on erroneous and unfounded accusations again on Instagram. You have claimed my daughter is guilty, rude, and has been repeatedly insinuating my daughter is lying.”

She added that their family realized that the actress didn’t want explanation but, “ You only want to defame our daughter publicly.”

The mother added that their family was under “unneeded stress and unwanted attention” due to the issue. They have already sought the legal assistance of their lawyer for their next steps. The Santos family is asking for a public apology and a reply within 5 days before they resort to necessary legal actions.
