Katrina and Hayden
Here's the latest news on the Halili-Kho sex scandal. It was written By Julie M. Aurelio and posted in the Philippine Daily Inquirer dated 8/26/2010.
"MANILA, Philippines—As mediation efforts between the camps of Katrina Halili and the mother of celebrity cosmetic surgeon Hayden Kho Jr. failed, a judge said the libel case filed by the actress against Irene Kho would go to trial.
In yesterday’s hearing, Judge Ma. Filomena Singh of the Quezon City Regional Trial Court Branch 85 directed both Halili and Irene Kho to undergo mediation to discuss the possibility of an out of court settlement.
However, nothing came out of the meeting as both camps had nothing to say to each other during the mediation session.
A source said Halili and Irene Kho just sat beside their lawyers and remained silent throughout the 10-minute proceeding.
Halili’s lawyer, Raymund Palad, and Kho’s lawyer, Jose Paolo Patajo, eventually admitted that it was hopeless to mediate between the two parties.
The court then set the pretrial at 2 p.m. on Oct. 20.
Halili filed the libel charges against her former lover’s mother after the older Kho alleged in two television interviews that it was the actress who introduced her son to illegal drugs.
Her complaint was junked by the Quezon City Prosecutor’s Office but the decision was overturned by the Department of Justice after Halili filed a petition for review.
Halili and the younger Kho were embroiled in a scandal last year after videos of them having sex ended up on the Internet.
The actress, who claimed that the videos were taken without her knowledge and consent, sued the cosmetic surgeon before a Pasig City court for violation of the Anti-Violence Against and Children Act.
In September, Kho was suspended for one year by the Philippine Medical Association “for conduct offensive to the profession.”
Note: Mrs Irene Kho is originally from Marinduque and now resides in Quezon City.
