Chito Miranda to press charges for leaked video
MANILA -- The camp of Parokya Ni Edgar vocalist Chito Miranda is now considering filing raps against those who leaked and posted photos and a video of him and his girlfriend, actress Neri Naig, in an intimate moment.
According to Rommel Cajayon of Backbeat Management, which handles the career of Miranda, they are now consulting lawyers to identify the social networking sites that shared the sex video.
Cajayon said Miranda is decided about pressing charges against the unnamed suspects.
After issuing an apology to his family and that of his girlfriend, Miranda's sister Yna Dalisay expressed support to his brother and the actress.
"The family is 100% behind Chito and Neri. I personally think there was absolutely nothing wrong with what they did and for me, there is nothing to be ashamed of or apologized for. Ang may mali 'yung nagnakaw ng video at ang mga patuloy na nagkalat. Alam nila it was meant to be private," Dalisay said.
Talent manager Manny Valera, who handles the career of Naig, also shared the same sentiment.
"Shame on those who continue to share the video on their social networking sites. Let us not judge them. They are people in love. But it's clear that Neri Naig's rights were abused and violated. She did not approve or consented to the uploading of a private video," Valera said.
On Sunday, Miranda showed that everything is okay after he posted a photo of him and Naig on Instagram with caption: "Di nyo kami matitinag." -- With report from Mario Dumaual, ABS-CBN News
