Lolit Solis wants Yul Servo, Eric Quizon and Rustom Padilla as witnesses for her in the libel case filed against her by actors Sam Milby and Piolo Pascual. She did not elaborate why.
The libel case charged against Lolit Solis by Piolo Pascual and Sam Milby stemmed from an alleged incident at the Hotel Sofitel on October 12, 2007, and which Lolit Solis wrote in her column which alleged that the actors were engaged in a romantic tryst and suggesting that the Philippines top matinee idols have a gay relationship.
Lolit Solis then offered feelers to the lawyers of Piolo Pascual and Sam Milby to retract the said article but the retraction will be able to say that Lolit probably mistook two male prostitutes for Sam and Piolo. That made Sam and Piolo’s camp and lawyers more angry.
Witnesses in support of Piolo Pascual and Sam Milby, fellow Philippine showbiz celebrities Angel Locsin, Rica Peralejo and comedienne Pokwang submitted their sworn affidavits, testifying that neither actor was at the said hotel on the date specified by Solis.
And to which Lolit Solis retorted, “Tatlo lang na witness ang gusto ko. Sana, mag-witness sa akin sina Yul Servo, Eric Quizon at Rustom Padilla!”.
Lolit Solis’ stable of stars, Lolit being a talent manager also, are willing to also make witness affidavit statements in support of her. Lolit Solis is scheduled to submit a counter-affidavit on the Libel charge against her on February 6.<
