Internationally recognized Pinay theater actress Lea Salonga said she felt relieved knowing that Willie Revillame decides not to pursue the libel case against them and other artists whom Willie thought were attacking her on twitter.
"I mean, obviously that's a relief. However, I don't know if you can file a case against someone who's just expressing his opinion," Lea said during the Avon's 125th year party.
Lea added, "My thing is, you know what, you are in showbiz. You are and I am an open target... So you know what, anybody can say anything they want. Just don't make me muraand I will respect what they say. Huwag nila akong murahin. Rerespetuhin ko ang opinion nila."
It will be recalled that on April 8 during the last live airing of Willing Willie, Willie threatened to file a libel case against Lea, Bianca Gonzales, Jim Paredes, Aiza Seguerra, Agot Isidro, Tuesday Vargas, K Brosas, Leah Navarro and Mylene Dizon who publicly expressed their opinions about the controversial Jan-Jan Suan Willing Willie child abuse issue.
