John Lapus to Sue Jobert Sucaldito for Libel; Jobert Says “Go Girl!”


First it was Willie Revillame, now it’s John Lapus.

Showbiz writer and radio show host Jobert Sucaldito may soon face a legal tussle as John Lapus is poised to bring things into court.

The Showbiz Central host and comedian had reportedly announced that he will be suing Jobert Sucaldito for libel. The issue stems from an article written by Sucaldito detailing an incident that Lapus was allegedly involved with during a Valentine show in Malate.

Jobert said in his column a week ago that during John’s show at The Library Comedy Bar and Restaurant, he was nearly attacked by a male audience after the latter did not like the offensive jokes of the comedian.

Lapus vehemently denied any truth to the article and said that such an incident never took place.  The comedian furthered that he is resolved to sue Sucaldito for being irresponsible in his write-up and for maligning him.

In an interview, John defended his planned legal move,

“This is for responsible journalism.”

But Jobert is not blinking.  The controversial entertainment writer said

“Sige, go girl! Ipagtatanggol ko ang katotohanan hanggang sa huling hibla ng buhok ko!

At ‘yong mga sumusuporta sa iyong personalidad, ilan sila, apat? Lima? Ilan tayo sa industriya? Isang libo? I will defend myself and my work as a journalist. ‘Wag kang mamilit ng lalaki. Baka mabasa ko one day sa dyaryo ‘bakla pinatay.”

He even said that in due time, he will release his evidence and the person who is purportedly offended by Lapus.

Jobert had already figured in a controversial fight with Willie Revillame in the past after strongly criticizing the noontime show host.
