Derek Ramsay and Mary Christine Jolly Wedding Photos, Derek Sued by Wife and Son Austin Gabriel


Now, here's the proof and the legal case alongside with it.

After the much-talked about controversy of his alleged marriage with a certain Mary Christine Jolly (which he extremely denied) while he was in a relationship with Angelica Panganiban, Derek Ramsay's wedding photos surfaced.


 
 


Reports said that the Kapatid hunk actor weds Mary Christine Jolly on April 3, 2002, in Balagtas, Bulacan in a civil rites. Their happy days, however, lasted for only 5 months. However, their unity blessed them with a son named Austin Gabriel.

Latest story insists that Derek is now facing legal case after his wife file a complaint last June 27, 2014 with the Makati City Prosecutor’s Office for Violations of Republic Act No. 9262, otherwise known as the Anti- Violence Against Women and Their Children Act of 2004.

Below is a copy of complaint affidavit by Mrs. Mary Christine J. Ramsay, save for some pertinent personal and legalese information. Notable of the revelations are: that Derek Ramsay is a British national; is legally married to Ms. Jolly and that they have a son named Austin Gabriel, now 11 years old; that their marriage is not yet annulled; that Derek Ramsay refused to recognize and support his son Austin; that Derek Ramsay even gave away an old laptop by ex-girlfriend Angelica Panganiban to son Austin; Mrs. Jolly-Ramsay attached as evidence their duly issued marriage certificate and the certificate of live birth of their son; among others.

FACTUAL ANTECEDENTS:
3. Respondent and I were married on 3 April 2002, in Balagtas, Bulacan as shown by the Marriage Contract attached hereto and made an integral part hereof as Annex “A”.

4. We were blessed with one child, Austin Gabriel Ramsay (Austin), who was born on 28 June 2003. Attached hereto and made an integral part hereof as Annex “B” is a copy of Austin’s Birth Certificate.

5. For the entire twelve (12) years of our marriage, respondent unduly and unlawfully subjected me and Austin to repeated emotional, psychological and economic abuse.

6. I met respondent in a club through our common friends sometime in 2001 when he won the MTV VJ hunt.

7. A few weeks to a month later, respondent and I began dating. Eventually, I moved in with him at his apartment in Makati City.

8. Our relationship was rocky as we fought all the time. He was very jealous, possessive and demanding. I was always ordered to stay at home.

9. Respondent traveled often, there was one trip to the United States of America (USA), where he met up with his former girlfriend. When he got back to Manila, I contracted a ** disease, which I had to get medical treatment for. The medical procedure was done in Makati Medical Center. Despite the emotionally and physically painful ordeal, I forgave him..

10. On 3 April 2002, respondent and I decided to get married in Balagtas, Bulacan. We lived together as a married couple until September 2002. This period was characterized by incessant fights and extreme jealousy on his part. When he broke off the relationship, I was distraught.

11. In October 2002, while on a short vacation in Dubai to visit my family, I found out I was pregnant. I immediately contacted respondent to let him know, hoping that even if he could not act as a husband to me, that he would at least be a father to our child. To my shock, the news of being father was spurned by him. He even had the temerity to claim that the child was not his. I was aghast but kept myself together because of my condition.

12. It then came to my attention that he was in a full blown relationship with another woman. This was very painful to accept considering that we just got married and I was then pregnant with our only son.

13. I came back to Manila in November 2002, I tried to contact him but to no avail. I stayed in my family’s home in Cavite for the duration of my pregnancy. During this time, I received no amount of financial and emotional support from him.

14. I tried to keep in touch with respondent during that period, informing him on a regular basis how the baby was doing, consulting him on the name, etc., but he was totally uncaring and unresponsive.

15. On 28 June 2003, I gave birth to our son, Austin, in a hospital in Imus, Cavite. I asked respondent to be there for the birth of his first child, and for the DNA test, that he requested to have. He did not show up.

16. After the birth, I repeatedly tried in vain to keep in touch. Being a new mother at a young age proved extremely difficult but the experience was even exacerbated by respondent’s appalling lack of concern. In September 2003, when Austin was almost 3 months old, I decided to move back to Dubai with my child.

17. In 2005, I sent a letter and a few pictures to respondent (from Dubai) of Austin. These were completely ignored.

18. In 2006 I came to Manila to visit, tried to reach respondent, but he ignored all my requests to meet.

19. In May of 2011, I came back for a visit to Manila. A segment on TV Patrol alerted the public that respondent was and is still married to me. He refused to see me until I made demands that I will go public.

20. When finally, he agreed to give me support, I thought that things would change. I was mistaken. Despite our agreement, it has been extremely difficult to get the support that respondent had undertaken to give. He is always delayed in making payments.

21. The first year of Austin’s school in Manila, which was sometime in 2012, respondent refused to make payment in my bank account for the school fees and preferred to make payments directly to his school. This caused me tremendous stress in arranging the school Austin should be attending, as well as tuition fees.

22. In 2012, respondent also refused to pay for the tutor of Austin, which was strongly advised by his school. Austin entered school in Manila at Grade 4, and I shouldered tutorial expenses for that year (2011).

23. Indeed, the effort of having to constantly remind and persuade respondent to give assistance caused me extreme stress since he was unresponsive most of the time. He would answer my email messages three to four weeks after.

24. After Austin graduated Grade 3 sometime in 2013, his teacher requested that he be provided tutorial assistance again for the next year. Respondent promised that if he needed help in school for the next school year, he would shoulder those expenses. When time came for the payment of expenses, he made it extremely difficult to get the money. I had to suffer tremendous stress for a period of three (3) weeks before I was able to get the funds from him.

25. On Austin’s 9th birthday, he asked respondent for an Ipad tablet. Respondent instead gave Austin an old laptop of his which was broken and then he replaced it with his former girlfriend’s (Angelica Panganiban), used laptop. Austin and I were very disappointed for this very shabby treatment as if Austin only deserved used and worn out items.

26. The laptop given even had Angelica Panganiban’s files and her skype was still logged in to the laptop. This is how we knew it was hers. Because he did not even bother to have these erased, it was as if he was intentionally exposing us to his girlfriend and making us feel that we were only good enough for her leftovers.

27. In September 2013, we requested that respondent provide Austin with his legal right of British citizenship, and a lumpsum for the next eight (8) years in rent/dental (excluding school fees for the next twelve (12) years of grade school/high school/college). Respondent and his family assured us that they would be working on the citizenship, the annulment and verbally agreed to the lumpsum.

28. However, it took six months to even get a meeting set up to discuss the above. During the meeting respondent’s father was present. They declared the amount we proposed unreasonable and
father and son (respondent) raised their voices, threatened and verbally attacked me and my lawyer. The meeting left me traumatized, confused and frustrated. I was so humiliated to be attacked in such a way. Needless to state, we did not get any matter resolved.

29. In the span of three (3) years of Austin residing in Manila, respondent met with Austin four (4) times only. He was always busy traveling and was never available or free when Austin is available. He preferred Austin to be the one to free his schedule when it is convenient for him, and not when it is convenient for Austin. The instances he saw Austin lasted not more than an hour or two each time. It was never quality time as he always had either his parents, his nephews/nieces or other family members around.

30. Respondent never acted as a father to Austin at all. He is irresponsible and unfit to be around his son. He has no sense of respect towards Austin, or me. He is incapable of making adult decisions and is extremely immature.

31. Moreover, despite respondent’s shortcomings and misdeeds to me and Austin, he even had the temerity to have very public extra-marital relationships with other women–some are even celebrities. These relationships were paraded in the press and in social media. Photos of him being sweet with his girlfriends would often be splashed on magazines and on television. Such brazen infidelity has caused me and Austin tremendous emotional and psychological pain.

“The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies” Teaser Trailer, Poster


From Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Peter Jackson comes “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies,” the third in a trilogy of films adapting the enduringly popular masterpiece The Hobbit, by J.R.R. Tolkien. Catch the film's teaser trailer which Warner Bros. Pictures has just revealed below:




“The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies” brings to an epic conclusion the adventures of Bilbo Baggins, Thorin Oakenshield and the Company of Dwarves.

But there are even greater dangers ahead. Unseen by any but the Wizard Gandalf, the great enemy Sauron has sent forth legions of Orcs in a stealth attack upon the Lonely Mountain.
As darkness converges on their escalating conflict, the races of Dwarves, Elves and Men must decide – unite or be destroyed. Bilbo finds himself fighting for his life and the lives of his friends in the epic Battle of the Five Armies, as the future of Middle-earth hangs in the balance.

“The Hobbit” Trilogy tells a continuous story set in Middle-earth 60 years before “The Lord of the Rings,” which Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Peter Jackson and his team brought to the big screen in the blockbuster trilogy that culminated with the Oscar®-winning “The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King.”

The film will be released worldwide beginning December 17, 2014, including the Philippines.

But after Miguel's attempted rape on Jasmine's character and his suicide, even she became perplexed as she tries to figure out the identity of Maskara herself.

Could it be Jasmine's on-screen romantic partner, TV5's top hunk Alexis Vergara (Vin Abrenica) who recently admitted that he's madly in-love with Jasmine? Or could it be showbiz blogger-turned-Showbiz Police host Wendell Bautista (Alwyn Uytingco) whose skills in knowing the latest scoops in show business can sometimes be borderline stalking? 

In the final showdown between Jasmine and Maskara, he reveals that he has one final ace up his sleeve. Will Maskara stay true to his promise of making Jasmine suffer? Will Jasmine survive the encounter? In the end, who will have blood in their hands?

Find out the identity of the person behind the mask the last episode of JASMINE this Sunday, 5PM (with replays on10PM) on TV5!

PBB All In Update: Fifth Pagotan's Tantrum Puts Manolo Pedrosa in Danger


Just when we all thought he'll save his close friend Manolo Pedrosa from possible nomination, Fifth Pagotan disappoints putting Manolo in danger of eviction this weekend.

Fifth, during Pinoy Big Brother All In "Ligtas Challenge" aired Tuesday night, had an emotional outburst over a task involving guinea pigs, worms, frogs and snakes.

The "Brad Kulit ng Pasay," along with the seven other remaining housemates, went through an obstacle course which had them counting the said animals. The task was to count and say the total number of all the animals, which, if correct, will be counted as a point to possibly save a housemate of their choice from getting nominated for eviction.

Fifth was the first to enter the challenge room and was visibly shocked when he unveiled each of the aquariums containing the animals, and became increasingly frantic when he saw the snakes. Despite successfully going trough each pit stop, he failed to provide the correct answer when he said 101 instead of 99.

Watch the video below:



By the end of the challenge, four housemates remained in the list of nominees - Fifth, Manolo, Jane Oineza, and Joshua Garcia (TO VOTE FOR YOUR FAVORITE HOUSEMATE, click HERE).

“If I Stay,” Another Tearjerking Story of Life, Love and Death


New Line Cinema has just shared the new international trailer of “If I Stay,” director R.J. Cutler’s adaptation of the Gayle Forman young adult novel. Watch below:



Gayle Forman’s best-selling novel comes to the screen in New Line Cinema’s and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures’ drama “If I Stay,” starring Chloë Grace Moretz (“Carrie,” the “Kick-Ass” films), Mireille Enos (TV’s “The Killing,” “World War Z”), Joshua Leonard (“Higher Ground”), Jamie Blackley (“Snow White and the Huntsmen”) and Stacy Keach (“Nebraska”).

In the film, Mia Hall (Moretz) thought the hardest decision she would ever face would be whether to pursue her musical dreams at Juilliard or follow a different path to be with the love of her life, Adam (Blackley). But what should have been a carefree family drive changes everything in an instant, and now her own life hangs in the balance. Caught between life and death for one revealing day, Mia has only one decision left, which will not only decide her future but her ultimate fate.

Rounding out the main cast are Liana Liberato, Aisha Hinds, Jakob Davies and Gabrielle Rose.

R.J. Cutler directed the film from a screenplay by Shauna Cross based on Forman’s novel. “If I Stay” is produced by Alison Greenspan, with Denise DiNovi, Forman and Brad Van Arragon serving as executive producers.

Opening across the Philippines on September 3, 2014, “If I Stay” is distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Entertainment Company.

“Rurouni Kenshin: Kyoto Inferno” Stars to Arrive in Manila for Asian Premiere


Manila, Philippines – Japanese director Keishi Otomo and actors Takeru Satoh, Emi Takei and Munetaka Aoki are flying to Manila to grace the Asian Premiere of “Rurouni Kenshin: Kyoto Inferno,” this was jointly announced today by William Ireton, President & Representative Director of Warner Entertainment Japan Inc., and Francis Soliven, General Manager of Warner Bros. Philippines.
The invitational red carpet premiere is scheduled on Wednesday night, August 6 at SM Megamall in Mandaluyong. The Japanese talents are also expected to interact with the media and fans in a public press conference Thursday, August 7 at the Glorietta Activity Center in Makati.

In making the announcement, Ireton stated, “We are thrilled to bring director Keishi Otomo and castmembers Takeru Satoh, Emi Takei and Munetaka Aoki to Manila so they can personally thank and engage with the loyal fans of `Rurouni Kenshin.' The Philippines is a very important market for the franchise as proven by the outstanding box-office success in Manila of the first `Rurouni Kenshin' film in 2013.

For his part, Soliven said, “Moviegoers in the Philippines have helped create a wave of anticipation and excitement for the `Rurouni Kenshin' sequels and the upcoming talent visit is a much welcome recognition of the fans' ardent support.

“Kyoto Inferno” which bows across the Philippines on August 20 is the first of two sequels to the 2013 blockbuster “Rurouni Kenshin.” The second, titled “The Legend Ends” opens on September 24.
Based on the Kyoto arc of the popular manga series written & illustrated by Nobuhiro Watsuki, the “Rurouni Kenshin” sequels follow the story of Kenshin Himura (Satoh), a legendary swordsman in the wars accompanying the turbulent fall of Japan's Shogunate in the 19th century. Once feared as 'Battosai the Killer', he has adopted a peaceful life since the arrival of the 'new age'.

But Makoto Shishio (Tatsuya Fujiwara), the 'Shadow Killer' and successor to Kenshin's position as the deadly assassin, has since then been scheming in the Kyoto underworld, raising an army of disaffected former samurais with the aim of overthrowing the new regime.

Agreeing to a request by the new government to defeat Shishio, Kenshin leaves his beloved ones in Tokyo and sets out for Kyoto. He and Shishio are a match in skill and in wits, but their aims are opposite. Can Kenshin preserve the nation without breaking his vow that he will kill no more...?

The films also star Emi Takei (Kaoru Kamiya), Munetaka Aoki (Sanosuke Sagara), Kaito Oyagi (Yahiko Myojin), Yu Aoi (Megumi Takani), Yosuke Eguchi (Hajime Saito), Min Tanaka (Nenji Kashiwazaki), Tao Tsuchiya (Misao Makimachi), Ryunosuke Kamiki (Soujiro Seta), Maryjun Takahashi (Yumi Komagata) and Tatsuya Fujiwara (Makoto Shishio).

The first sequel, “Rurouni Kenshin: Kyoto Inferno” will open across the Philippines on August 20, 2014, to be followed by “Rurouni Kenshin: The Legend Ends” on Sept. 24, 2014. Both films are distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures.

Uprising Actresses Mélanie Laurent and Sarah Gadon Join Jake Gyllenhaal in "Enemy"


Chaos is order yet undeciphered.

Equally as important as Jake Gyllenhaal’s dual-role of Adam and Anthony in the existential erotic thriller ENEMY, are the women in the lives of the two characters.

Cast to play Adam’s girlfriend Mary, is French actress Mélanie Laurent. Laurent recalled she was immediately intrigued by the role of Mary and had many questions about the character.

The first thing I said to director Denis Villeneuve was I needed to know how long Mary and Adam had been together because we’re seeing the end of the relationship when we start the movie, which can be a strange place to begin,” says the actress.

We talked extensively about Mary and about her relationship with Adam, which really helped me with the part.” “Mary is a very vulnerable character, but not a victim,” says Laurent. “I think she’s still really in love with Adam but she realizes that the relationship simply isn’t working.”  Acting this emotionally draining role opposite Jake Gyllenhaal was both wonderfully difficult and unique. “One minute we’re having violent sex, the next we’re laughing and the next we’re crying. Because it’s the end of their relationship, it’s really tense,” recalls Laurent.



For the part of Anthony’s pregnant wife Helen, the production team enlisted the talents of Sarah Gadon.

I wanted an experience where I felt pushed and challenged - that's why doing this project was so important to me,” says Gadon.  “I knew that working with Denis would do that and I knew that working on a film like this would challenge me immensely.”

After reading the script and meeting with Villeneuve, Gadon understood that ENEMY would be a balancing act between high-art aesthetic and the realism of true-to-life character. Despite its style and panache, Gadon thought that the role also had much to do with real, human experience. “The way that I look at Helen and her situation with her husband Anthony is that she wants him to be the man that he isn't but one day he walks in the door and he is the man she has always wanted him to be,” says Gadon.

At that point nothing else matters because the man she wants to be with is now in front of her.” 

In addition to acting, Gadon had to endure the idea of transforming into a pregnant woman and opted for a weighted belly to aid her performance. “I asked for a weighted belly because I wanted to feel the physical presence of the pregnancy,” says Gadon. “I knew there would be scenes that instinctually I'd want to move fast or I'd want to do a physical movement and if it didn't look real it would kill me. I wear the weighted belly underneath my clothes and then a prosthetic piece when I'm nude, which takes two hours to be put on.

Gyllenhaal recognizes that the women in the script are integral to the story. “The incredible thing about this movie is that there are these three immensely strong female characters and three strong actresses who play them,” says Gyllenhaal. “I think the women in the script define Adam and Anthony. With Mary, her spirit is what drives a large part of the Adam story and likewise with Helen in Anthony’s life.”

The third female character in the film is Adam’s mother, Caroline, played by legendary actress Isabella Rossellini , whom he visits in an attempt to get some clarity on his situation.

Caroline is an artist,” says Rossellini. “She has authority with her son and is quite dismissive of him, isolating him even further in his anguish.”   On working with the legendary actress, Villeneuve says: “It was a massive privilege for me to work with Isabella Rossellini. She’s one of my favorite actresses of all time and she was my first choice. I needed someone that would be able to bring this kind of narcissism and maternal presence to the part with a lot of humanity. And I knew that she would be perfect.” 
Watch ENEMY Trailer below:


ENEMY tells the story of a university lecturer named Adam (Gyllenhaal) who one night, after watching a film, recognizes a minor actor who looks just like him. Consumed by the desire to meet his double, Adam tracks down Anthony, and engages him in a complex and dangerous struggle.

A deep existential crisis must move slowly around Adam, like a shark around its prey in dark waters. This existential crisis, this depression, is part of the main character, even if it isn’t mentioned in the dialogue. How unbearable is it to confront yourself, to totally recognize yourself in another being?” asks Villeneuve.

Distributed by Solar Pictures, Enemy opens in cinemas on July 30, 2014.

Kapuso Miguel Tanfelix and Bianca Umali Join Kapamilya Nash Aguas, Jane Oineza as BUM Youth Brand Ambassadors


Manila, Philippines – The country’s next top clothing brand, BUM has found another reason to welcome two young brand ambassadors - Miguel Tanfelix and Bianca Umali. A contract signing is set on Thursday, July 24, 1pm at Annabel’s on Tomas Morato Avenue, Scout Delgado Street.

Both Tanfelix and Umali are GMA artists and are the youth lead stars of the top-rating teleseries titled ‘Niño’ which is aired daily on GMA Kapuso Network after 24 Oras.

It is but fitting to have the two join the rosters of our young ambassadors because of the image they have created toward the Filipino televiewers. They consistently project wholesome personas,” Rai Lacoste, BUM’s Marketing Officer said.

Apart from that, both Miguel and Bianca are also considered as today’s Teen Prince and Teen Princess of GMA Telebabad.”

Tanfelix, now 15 years of age was the Young Pagaspas in Kapuso’s other top-rating fantaserye called ‘Mulawin’ in 2004. While Umali, 14, was a former host and performer in ‘Tropang Potchi’ since 2009 till 2013.

 


BUM Equipment found Miguel and Bianca not only as talented youngstars, but as inspirations for this new generation. Tanfelix rose to stardom via a talent search as his efforts paid off when he made it as one of the finalists and was named First Prince of StarStruck Kids in 2004. Umali, on the other hand, being an orphan didn’t hinder her to fulfill her late parents’ wishes and even if she lives with her grandmother; she has embraced a life of being responsible and independent.

Currently, the two are groomed as a pair and are also working together in another show called ‘Ismol Family’ that airs every Sunday.

BUM Equipment as a brand continually seeks to work with endorsers that create an image of positivity and leave a lasting and affirming impact for its patrons and its captive market, which is the Filipino youth.
