Viva Artists Agency formally files charges against Nadine Lustre

The talent agency's legal counsel filed a lawsuit against the actress at the Quezon City Regional Trial Court (QCRTC) on Friday, December 11.

According to the statement released by Viva, charges were filed against Lustre for disregarding her exclusive contract and violating the rules of the agency. They said the actress "violated her valid and existing 'agency and management contract'."

The actress independently made contracts with advertisers, promoters, and other third parties while disregarding the exclusive contract she has with the talent agency.

Viva said they filed charges because they want to stop Lustre from "continuously violating her 'agency and management contract' with VAA."

Atty Chino Roxas, the legal counsel of Viva made the statement, "Ms. Lustre should honor & respect the sanctity of contracts & that third parties are put on notice that any direct dealings w/ Ms. Lustre for her services as a performing artist or endorser shall be in violation of Ms. Lustre’s contract w/ VAA."

January this year, Lustre announced she has officially left Viva Artists Agency, her talent agency for several years. Her legal counsel Kapunan & Castillo Law Offices made a statement that Lustre is now “self-managed and will continue to be so indefinitely.”

“She shall directly manage her affairs from now on, and bookings and inquiries may be directly addressed to her,” it said.

Meanwhile, Viva insists that Lustre remains to be their talent until June 2029 under her exclusive contract with the agency.
