Ana Jalandoni’s legal rep recently stated that the actress is determined to sue her boyfriend, actor Kit Thompson following the alleged physical assault against her.
Atty. Faye Singson in her statement expressed that they are currently preparing to press charges “to the fullest extent of the law.”
“The savage and barbaric acts of the Respondent should not be condoned,” Singson said. “How ironic that as we celebrate Women’s Month, such abuses being committed against women still exist. But know that for Ana to come out and speak up is a bold step to vindicating her dignity.”
It is noted that Kit was arrested in Tagaytay City on 18 March, after it was reported that he allegedly abused his girlfriend and detaining her inside a hotel room.
Ana is reportedly still in the hospital for treatment, with her lawyer saying that her eyesight was severely affected, among other injuries. She previously posted photos of her injuries on social media, stating, “When you love someone, you will never ever harm them. Did you really love them?”
On the other hand, Kit has now been released from detention after posting bail.
The couple first made their relationship public in December last year.
