Jessica Rodriguez and David Bunevacz sued for embezzling funds

December 22, 2007

Power couple, Jessica Rodriguez, she, a Celebrity Duets runner-up, a former host of the QTV show Extreme Makeover Philippine Edition and a former sexy starlet and talent manager and David Bunevacz, he, a former gold medalist in the 1997 SEA Games for decathlon, and a Fil-am businessman, are sued by Beverly Hills 6750 because of alleged misallocation of company funds.

David Bunevacz is Beverly Hills 6750’s CEO and President while Jessica Rodriguez-Bunevacz is the Director for Marketing. It will be remembered that in the Celebrity Duets finals, Jessica Rodriguez was gifted by David Bunevacz with a luxury car. Allegedly, it raised an alarm from the owners of Beverly Hills 6750. Meanwhile, it was reported that Jessica Rodriguez sought the help of Sen. Bong Revilla because David allegedly received death threats and was in fact beaten up by unknown assailants. The couple are now in the US.

Here’s what Beverly Hills 6750 has to say:

“Beverly Hills 6750, an aesthetic center specializing in cosmetic surgery, dermatology, cosmetic dentistry and cosmetic gynecology put up as a collaboration between businessmen and physicians, has been in the news lately ever since celebrity couple David and Jessica Bunevacz, was reported to have left the company (and the country) because of alleged anomalous transactions which have cost BH6750 a considerable amount of money.

“The management of BH6750 confirmed that Mr. David Bunevacz has indeed resigned from his position as President of the corporation. The board of directors and owners has appointed a management committee to oversee the day-to-day operations of the center and a new election of officers will be held January next year.

“The board has remained silent on the issue because they initially preferred that the matter be dealt with internally as a matter of corporate practice. The couple has chosen to air their side of the corporate controversy to the media. Beverly Hills 6750 believes the truth should be shared with their loyal clientele and the general public.

“Mr. Bunevacz offered to settle but on terms that were unacceptable to the owners of the corporation. Thus, legal action has been taken by the board through their law firm Siguion-Reyna, Montecillo and Ongsiako and a demand letter has already been sent to Mr. Bunevacz and legal proceedings are expected to follow soon.

“Beverly Hills 6750 has established itself as one of the most reputable aesthetic centers in the country. It has a team of highly credentialed Filipino doctors trained both here and abroad, bringing a wide range of aesthetic services to the Philippines. The center continues to serve its clients and assures the public of its continued professional services with its new leadership.”
