Nadine Lustre insists to self-manage career, VIVA warns legal action

On Monday, January 27, Nadine Lustre‘s legal team, Kapunan & Castillo Law Offices announced that the actress has decided to terminate her agency contract with Viva Artist Agency (VAA), and is currently self-managed indefinitely but VAA claimed that the award-winning actress remains as their exclusive contract artist.

In a statement, VIVA said that Nadine cannot unilaterally withdraw from her contract. It also threatened legal action between Nadine and/or third parties that deals directly with her.

“Any dealings or professional engagements entered into by Nadine, without the consent or approval of VIVA constitutes breach of contract,” the agency said.

According to her lawyer Lorna Kapunan, they welcome any legal action by Viva so their unconscionable, oppressive and illegal contract with Nadine (and their other artists) can be litigated in the proper forum.

“Viva lawyers have not replied to our earlier letters but chose to wait in ambush to malign Nadine and harass third parties dealing with her in good faith.  This is wrongful and malicious contract interference by Viva actionable in law for damages,” Kapunan added.

Nadine was a member of VIVA’s girl group Pop Girls in 2009. After 5 years, she starred in VIVA Films’ Diary ng Panget alongside with ex-boyfriend James Reid where she started to gain popularity.
