- Actor and DOT Promotions Board COO mulling suit against Aguilar for continued tirades in FB
- He said he won’t tolerate below-the-belt a*****s from Aguilar anymore
- He also said his camp believes they have a strong case against her
MANILA, Philippines – Outlandish personality Marlene Aguilar may be in hot water after actor and Department of Tourism Promotions Board (DOTPB) Chief Operating Officer (COO) Cesar Montano said he’s mulling a lawsuit against her.
Montano, who has been relentlessly accused by Aguilar of corruption and misconduct in her Facebook account, said he could no longer tolerate the latter’s a*****s against him.
“The people close to me are already crying foul against all the vicious a*****s on my person and character. You know me, I’m not a person who engages anyone on things like this, lalo na hindi naman totoo [more so because they are not true]. I didn’t want to be filing a case against anyone. It’s not my style. But this time, I think it is just right because there are people who mistake our silence for toleration of their wrongful behavior against me. I have done nothing wrong. I have nothing to hide,” Manila Bulletin quoted him as saying.
Aguilar originally blasted Montano for supposedly delaying the DOT’s payment of P32 million to a company which supplied the sound system for the recently-concluded ASEAN summit because he did not receive any kickbacks.
In her later posts, Aguilar brought up Montano’s alleged misbehavior with his ex-wife and children as well as his supposed hiring of relatives and friends as his personal staff within the DOT.
According to Montano, however, Aguilar could just be sour-graping at the DOTPB’s decision to slash its sponsorship budget for her so-called cultural project.
The actor added his camp is confident of the strength of their case against Aguilar.
“My lawyers are quite confident we have a good case,” he said.
