Solenn Heusaff denies tax evasion case
Actress and model Solenn Heusaff pleaded not guilty on the tax evasion case filed against her when she attended the hearing of her case at the Department of Justice.
Heusaff’s lawyer, Jay Layug, confirmed that they have filed a counter affidavit against the case.
Atty. Layug said that Heusaff has no intentions of not paying her taxes to the government.
He added that they were also deprived of due process because while they were asked to pass the necessary documents of the Bureau of Internal Revenue, the case was immediately filed to the DOJ in just five days.
Heusaff’s camp believes that there’s no probable cause to lift the case to the court.
Meanwhile, the next hearing of Heausaff’s tax evasion case will be on June 19.
In the BIR’s record, Heusaff earned 13.38 million pesos but she only declared 6.73 million pesos in 2011 and that her tax liability only surfaced at 3.6 million pesos. (Judie Anne Abejero)
Willie denies quitting because of salary issue
TV Host Willie Revillame isn’t renewing his contract with TV5 when it expires in October. Because of this, speculations from the four corners of the showbiz industry start to pile up. One of the alleged reasons why the controversial TV host didn’t renew his contract was that the Pangilinan-owned company refused to give in to his massive asking talent fee.
This was immediately denied by the camp of Revillame.
According to them, there’s no truth that Revillame resigned because the big bosses from the TV station didn’t agree with his 90 Million peso demand contract.
Some high ranking official from the network decided to not renew Revillame’s contract because of that.
However, the TV host’s camp insisted that Willie is resigning because he would want to give time for himself.
Prior to this, Willie made an earlier announcement during his program that he already tendered in his resignation on May 17, saying that he will focus on his business first, something that he hadn’t done in three years.
The last airing of his show is slated on October 13. (Judie Anne Abejero)
