Solenn Heusaff faces Tax Evasion Charges

Statuesque model-actress Solenn Heusaff got the shock of her young, carefree life after hearing about the Tax Evasion case filed by BIR.

“I was shocked when I found about this,”

According to BIR, the actress made a mistake declaring her tax returns for 2011.  Solenn allegedly claimed her gross income was only 6.73 million and her taxable income only 3.3 million.

“Heussaff’s underdeclaration is more than 30 percent and is prima facie evidence of fraud.”

Solenn, visibly upset, said she had entrusted all her financial affairs to a certain person she has yet to name.

“I’ve been assured all along by people I have entrusted my financial matters to that everything was being handled correctly.”

“That is how I and my siblings were brought up by our parents – to always be correct in all our dealings.”

Solenn swore she will have the issue investigated and rectified as soon as possible.

The checks Solenn got from the companies she worked with that year: GMA Network, San Miguel Brewery Inc., Ginebra San Miguel, Penshoppe at Tape Inc., showed that she earned more than 13 million pesos of talent fees.

BIR has estimated Solenn’s tax deficiency at 3.6 milyon, with surcharge and interest.

Kris Aquino Will Return to Her Shows


After successfully turning a family crisis into a national issue and subsequently claiming that she is resigning from all her shows and quitting showbiz, Kris Aquino’s pronouncement may be a bit premature.

ABS-CBN has announced that the TV host will stay on her programs in the Kapamilya network.

Aquino currently hosts a talk show called “Kris TV” aside from starring in primetime soap “Kailangan Ko’y Ikaw” and judging the reality talent search “Pilipinas Got Talent.”

On March 23, Bong Osorio, head of ABS-CBN Integrated Corporate Communications, said in a statement that network executives will meet with Aquino when she returns to the Philippines from a trip to France with her son James “Bimby” Yap Jr.

Two days before the trip, Aquino was interviewed on “TV Patrol” during which she announced she would be resigning from all her shows to take care of her son in the face of recent conflict with former husband James Yap.

The 42-year-old star said on air, “I’m giving up my shows. Hindi ko sinasabi ‘yan just so that I can say na I’m the one making the bigger sacrifice. Tinatalikuran ko ang mundo na kinilala ko na bumuhay sa akin dahil higit doon sa karera ko, mas mahal ko ang anak ko (I’m not saying that just so I can say I’m the one making the bigger sacrifice. I’m turning my back on the world of my career because more than my career, I love my son).”

Commitments

But Osorio maintained in the ABS-CBN statement that “upon her return, Kris will fulfill her commitment to her soap ‘Kailangan Ko’y Ikaw,’ which is nearing its end.”

“She will also have to stay as [a] judge in ‘Pilipina Got Talent’ till its end in June. Being a foreign franchise, there are commitments we have to fulfill and rules we need to abide by,” he added.

As for “Kris TV,” Osorio said the next episodes had already been taped in preparation for her vacation in France.

However, Osorio did not confirm that Aquino will tape any more episodes of the show after her return.

On March 20, Aquino was granted a temporary protection order (TPO) by a Makati regional court after former husband James Yap allegedly made overt sexual advances on her in her home and in the presence of Bimby.

Despite Yap’s petition for a hold departure order (HDO) to be imposed on mother and son, Aquino and Bimby were allowed to leave the country for Paris on Saturday, March 23.

Maybe, we ought to start calling her, the Queen of All Media Pronouncement! Sheesh!

Actress and TV host Kris Aquino announced she was quitting show business following her filing of a temporary protection order (TPO) against her ex-husband, professional basketball player James Yap.

Speaking to ABS-CBN’s TV Patrol, Aquino said, “I’m tendering my resignation. Sa puso ng isang nanay, ito ang dinidikta sakin (this is what a heart of a mother dictates). I’m giving up my shows.” Aquino says her sisters cautioned her against the move because of contractual obligations but she insists her obligations as a mother are more important, “I have to do what’s best for my son (James “Bimby” Aquino-Yap) & that means sacrificing my job.”

The feud between Aquino and Yap escalated following Yap’s press conference last Wednesday, March 20. A tearful Yap denied the allegations against him hinting Aquino was brainwashing their child.

Yap’s camp also filed for a hold departure order banning Kris from taking Bimby out of the country. Aquino and her sons are scheduled to leave the country on March 23rd. Yap’s camp accused Aquino of depriving Yap of “all opportunities to exercise his visitation rights”.

James Yap Counters Kris Aquino’s TPO, Claims the Queen of All Media is Lying!

“Walang katotohanan naman yan.”

That was how San Mig Coffee Mixers superstar James Yap responded when informed that his ex-wife Kris Aquino had filed a temporary protection order against him.

In her petition, Aquino accused Yap of making “overt sexual advances” last December, which allegedly traumatized their son James, nicknamed Bimby.

Aquino said that Yap “acted as if he was still entitled to his matrimonial rights” during a visit, in full view of their son.

But Yap said that it wasn’t what happened.

“Ayaw talaga ako i-kiss ni Bimby, so pumunta ako kay Kris, hinawakan ko siya rito. ‘Bimb, look o, ki-kiss ko na mama mo…’

“Tapos si Kris biglang nagsabi na, ‘Sinasaktan mo ako.’

“So hi-nug siya tapos ‘pag hug niya nakatalikod sa ‘kin si Bimby, nakaharap siya sa akin tapos ang mukha ni Kris, gumaganun-ganun siya tapos (ngiting aso) saka ko sinabi, ito talaga!”

Even before the incident, Yap said that he had felt that Bimby had been having ill feelings toward him because of things Aquino had been saying about him behind his back.

“Sobrang nasasaktan ako, kasi sinasabihan ako ng anak ko na, ‘I don’t like you, you’re a liar.’ Iniisip ko, ano ba ang ginawa ko?” said Yap, who broke down in tears during the interview.

“Sino nagsasa (pauses crying)… Sino nagsasabi sa ‘yo niyan? Sabi niya, ‘Mama, mama.’

“Pag sinasabihan ako masasakit na salita ang ginagawa ko, ‘Bimb, tingin ka sa mata ni Papa. Ito lang masasabi ko sa ‘yo, love na love ka ni Papa.’”

Yap said he has confronted Aquino, who responded with a threat.

“Sabi niya, ‘Baka nakalimutan mo, may three years pa yung brother ko.’ Sabi ko, ‘Ganun? Grabe ka naman ang yabang mo.’ Galit na galit siya nun,” said Yap.

He added that he had no reason to make advances on Aquino, since he has already moved on.

“Wala naman ako pakialam kay Kris, eh ang gusto ko lang makasama na yung anak ko,” said Yap.

Yap’s counsel, Lorna Kapunan, sees only one motive for Aquino’s TPO request: his refusal to sign adoption papers that would strip him of any rights to his son.

“She files one month after he did not sign the adoption. That’s our only inference,” she said.

But according to Aquino’s lawyer Frank Chavez, Yap’s infrequent visits to his son is enough for Bimby to build resentment against the two-time PBA Most Valuable Player.

“If you look at the records it was just 22-24 visits out of 104,” said the lawyer.

Yap and Aquino were married in 2005 before separating five years later. Their marriage was declared null and void last year.

Kris Aquino Files TPO Against Ex-Husband James Yap

Television host and actress Kris Aquino has filed a temporary protection order (TPO) against her ex-husband James Yap whom she accuses of making unwanted sexual advances to her in her home and of inflicting psychological harm to their son 5-year-old son Bimby.

Inquirer.net reports that the TPO filed from a Makati court will grant protection to Aquino and her son for 30 days from its issuance. But the petition, prepared by Aquino’s counsel (law firm Chavez, Miranda, Aseoche), wants the protection order to be made permanent.

The petition asks the court to order Yap to keep a distance of at least 100 meters from her, Bimby, and any member of their household. By the power of the TPO, Yap is also forbidden from visiting her residence, work place, Bimby’s school or any place frequented by mother and son.

The petition recounts the time the basketball player had visited Kris’s condominium unit in December 2012 to pick up his son as part of their twice-a-week visiting arrangement. He then entered Aquino’s bedroom and made “overt sexual advances” to Aquino which she resisted. Her rejection drove Yap to “utter mean and malicious statements.”

According to the petition, all of this happened in the presence of their son who had even positioned himself between his parents and had told Yap to leave the room and “stop hurting” his mother. He also begged Kris to “tell him to go away.”

The incident traumatized the boy who, the petition said, has shown signs of being upset and highly agitated whenever in the presence of his father or when he hears his voice on the phone.

The petition notes that the incident was made possible “by the unfettered access of respondent Yap on the household and persons of the petitioners.”

Aquino and Yap’s marriage was officially annulled last year. Though Yap was given twice-a-week visitation rights, the petition states that Yap has not maximized this, visiting the boy a maximum of 10 times in a year
