Veteran showbiz writer Lolit Solis says young actress Kisses Delavin allegedly failed to pay for the collateral damage caused by a busted water valve found in the latter's unit in Imperial Palace Suites, Tomas Morato, Quezon City.
The busted water valve is reportedly the reason why one of the two elevators in the establishment short-circuited and could not be used for a month.
As Lolit further reveals in her Instagram post dated November 14, Thursday, the unit is owned by veteran actress Lorna Tolentino, and her son Rap Fernandez looks after it.
Since Kisses allegedly left the unit without paying for the repairs, management is asking Rap for the payment.
Published as is, Lolit's caption reads: "Ang problema, iyon deposito stop payment na so ang laki ng abono ni Rap, eh ayaw na sagutin nila Kisses ang tawag sa phone para ma-clear sana ang mga dapat na obligasyon.
"Ayaw ko naman si Rams David ang singilin ni Rap, so sana mabasa ito nila Kisses Delavin para magkaayos sila sa mga dapat ayusin."
Rams David is Kisses' current manager.
Earlier this month, Kisses left Star Magic after two years and signed up with APT Films and Triple A Management, the same management outfit that handles GMA-7 stars Marian Rivera and Maine Mendoza.
Earlier today, November 16, showbiz columnist Ricky Lo releases Kisses's side through a two-part Instagram post.
In the first caption, Ricky confirms Lolit's report "is correct but it's unfair to Kisses because ang kausap ni Rap ay hindi si Kisses kundi ang mom niyang si Carrie Delavin."
Published as is, Ricky adds, "I think the Delavins are victims of a bad incident that could have been prevented. You've heard one side of the story. Hete is the other side, from Carrie:
The Delavins had been staying at the unit for one year and renewed the contract for six more monrhs (until December 2019) while waiting to move to a condo unit in BGC na binili nila.
"Gusto ni Kisses sa Imperial kasi makapit sa kanyang place of work sa ABS (before she moved to APT/Triple A management l Like the first time, Carrie issued post-datef checks to Rap for six months. The relationship was okay...until bumaha sa unit nina Kisses."
Many of Kisses' belongings were ruined, Ricky notes, and they had no water in their unit because of the busted valve.
Because of this, Kisses and her family decided to move to their unit in Bonifacio Global City "but only after paying the bills (association dues, water, electricity, etc.) and cleaning the unit."
In Ricky's second post, the showbiz columnist explains about the payments.
Published as is, the full caption reads, "Since hindi na sina Kisses nakatira sa unit since early October, her mom Carrie asked to get the two remaining post-dated checks (for November and December 2019), but due to miscommunucatuon, hindi naibalik yung checks so Carrie aaked the bank na ipa-Stop Payment, di na bale yung pang October na na-i-cash na.
"'Hindi po nag-bounce yung checks,' according to Carrie. 'May pundo po sa bank.' And that's the ahortened long story.
"Meanwhile, hindi pa nagkakasundo ang unit owner at ang building owner kung sino sa kanila ang dalat magpa-ayos ng sirang tubo.
"Poor Kisses, the collateral danage, is caught in between. (NOTE: nay tubig po sa BGC at araw-ataw nang nakaka-paligo ang mga Delavin. Their vacated Imperial unit is empty na and clean.)-#"
At press time, the two-part Instagram post of Ricky has been deleted.
