Controversies

Angel Locsin on Cosmopolitan Magazine coverAngel Locsin had her fair share of controversy after appearing in a TV ad for Axe (manufactured by Unilever Philippines). Many feminist groups, as well as former Senator Nikki Coseteng, complained about the offensive gestures in the advertisement. In the television commercial, Angel is teasing a man by showing off money and her body, but the man approaches Angel and takes only her money. Because of these complaints, Unilever pulled out the commercial.

On July 20, 2007, Quezon City Regional Trial Court Branch 81 Presiding Judge Ma. Theresa Yadao dismissed Locsin’s petition for reformation of instrument and/or rescission/breach of contract and damages filed against Rebecca “Becky” Aguila after granting her motion to dismiss, based on settlement of their differences. Locsin sued her manager on December 6 where she asked the court to order the reformation of the terms of the Artist Management Contract which she had signed, to reflect the true intention of the parties. Angel Locsin’s five-year contract with GMA expired in mid-2007.

Her manager, Becky Aguila, and her father, Angel Colmenares, sent a letter just a few hours away from the first and official statement confirming her transfer, formally informing GMA that her talent would not renew her contract with the Kapuso network. In August 2007, she transferred to ABS-CBN Network, the rival TV station of GMA. She told in an interview with Boy Abunda that she is no longer happy with GMA and she is looking forward to having a better career in ABS-CBN.

She worked round the clock all year round from the day she became a star and was left with little time to rest that even brought her to hospitals due to exhaustion. She also had little or almost no quality time with her family, most specially with her blind father. Angel fully supports her family and is the bread winner.

With her statement, GMA was disappointed. Although on the same note, Angel did her part while she was in GMA, she made blockbuster movies and top rating tv series, Her official letter was also submitted to GMA in the morning of the same day she finally officially announced that she’s switching networks. This unethical and unprofessional manner of informing the network which boosted her to stardom caused GMA and fans alike to frown upon this seemingly ingrate act.

    A hammer would only cost 5 Million pesos and not 10 million….
    And her house that she claims to be 16 Million …I doubt ….
    Whatever properties she acquired…still she can still be tag as starlet
    for she don’t have any major award yet …and will never get one..
    because shecan’t act well ..with Angelica Panganiban, Bea Alonzo and many more around her…She can’t even beat Marian’s acting powers….
