- In his YouTube video, Atty. Jesus Falcis then compared the actress’ contract with the said talent agency to “slave contracts” in other countries
- Falcis likewise believes that Lustre has a higher chance of winning the case filed by VIVA against her
Nadine Lustre’s contract with VIVA Artists Agency recently got an honest remark from a lawyer.
On his YouTube channel named “Pinoy Lawyer Reacts”, Atty. Jesus Falcis compared the actress’ exclusive management contract with the said talent agency to “slave contracts” in other countries like South Korea.
“14 years as an exclusive talent or artist of a company in the Philippines. It’s too long. Ang haba po nu’n. Ang daming pwedeng mangyari sa loob ng 14 years. Imagine in just one year, nagka-pandemic,” Falcis said.
“So ‘yung ganu’ng klaseng mga contract, depende din sa probisyon na nakalagay sa kontrata. But the length itself, parang mga slave contracts sa South Korea na 10 to 15 years din ‘yung duration or validity ng exclusive contract between the management and the artist.”
To recall, VIVA filed a breach of contract suit against Lustre after the actress decided to terminate the management contract with the entertainment agency in January 2020.
Moreover, Falcis believes that Lustre has a higher chance of winning the case.
Watch his reaction video on the said case below:
Nadine Lustre is a Filipina, singer, actress, and music video director. She was once part of the all-female group, Pop Girls. Her popularity started when she starred in “Diary ng Panget” opposite James Reid.
Viva accused Lustre of unilaterally terminating her management contract and disregarded its exclusivity. According to Viva, Lustre is expected to stay as their exclusive artist until June 2029, based on their contractual agreements.
Right after Viva announced they filed a complaint before the Quezon City Regional Trial Court on December 11, 2020, Lustre's legal counsel, Atty. Lorna Kapunan, released a statement. She said they are in no doubt that the truth about VIVA’s oppression towards their talents, not just Lustre, will come out. She also accused the agency of taking advantage of its young talents.
