Jobert Sucaldito Sues Gabby, Manager for Breach of Contract


Tri-media personality Jobert Sucaldito who has a radio program and entertainment column aside from being a co-host of ABS-CBN's toprating Sunday show "The Buzz," filed a complaint for breach of contract at the Regional Trial Court in Quezon City last Wednesday against Concepcion and his manager Mrs. Rose Flaminiano.

Plaintiff Jobert said he is a good friend of the Concepcions, and such friendship spanned over two decades, during which time, the plaintiff said he had publicly defended Concepcion in his previous indiscretions, including his marriages with other women (aside from Ms. Sharon Cuneta) and the Manila filmfest scndal. Because of such close relationship, Sucaldito was approached by Ms. Olai Espiritu, president of White Beauty, who requested plaintiff to act in behalf of the company in securing the services of the defendant to endorse their product.

A negotation was made, and after two weeks, Sucaldito was able "to consummate the contract which provides, among others, that for endorsing the Met Tathione products of White Beauty in the tri-media (radio, television and print), defendant will receive a total of P2.5-million plus two units of 56-inch plasma television. The formal contract signing was supposed to be done on April 24, 2008, but on April 18, Jobert said he received a call from defendant Flaminiano who was trying to arrange a meeting with him.

And then, because of a missent text message apparently from the plaintiff saying there's a big problem, Jobert became suspicious and called up Gabby to inquire if there was a problem and the defendant said no, and requested Jobert to take care of him, because he didn't really know much about his manager but he has a contract with her for two years.

Jobert assured Gabby that he will take care of him and will even die for him.

Anyway, to make a long story short, the White Beauty endorsement deal didn't push through because Mrs. Flaminiano told Sucaldio they were offered P5 million by United Shelter Health Products, maker of Lucida beauty and wellness products, a competitor of Met Tathione.

She showed him the contract, already signed by her and Gabby and to think that in the morning of their meeting, the actor didn't say they already signed the contract with United Shelter.

For this, Jobert said he was hurt, and that he suffered immensely due to all the foregoing actions of the defendants. He lost his treasured and priceless word of honor. "In an industry such as the entertainment world, a written contract is usually a useless formality. Contract signing in the showbiz domain is often an opportunity for press conferences and media mileage. Word of honor and respecting commitments are the lifeblood of the industry. One can succeed if he has them, and will definitely fail if he has none.

Much importance is given to word of honor - this can make or break careers in this field of endeavor," Jobert said in his complaint.

Jobert is asking for moral damages of at least P2-million, exemplary damages of at least P500,000, attorney's fees of at least P200,000 and litigation expenses of P100,000.
