Dr. Vicki Belo got an early Christmas gift when the case filed against boyfriend Hayden Kho by actress Katrina Halili was dismissed by the Pasig Regional Trial Court. “It's the best Christmas gift I could ever hope for and of course Hayden also kasi napakabigat noon (case). Kahit anong ginagawa namin, at the back of our minds, may worry. Pero ngayon peaceful,” Belo said, as quoted by www.abs-cbnnews.com.
Katrina sued Hayden in violation of Republic Act (RA) 9262, or the Anti-Violence Against Women and Children Act, after their sex video became public and which the actress claimed was taken without her consent.
Belo said that her boyfriend was very grateful for the big blessing and he offered a mass after he learned about the decision. “The nice thing about him, I think the whole thing happened para bumalik siya sa Diyos.”
Dr. Vicki also defended Kho’s desire to talk to Katrina in an effort to make amends for what has happened between them in the past. “Alam mo si Hayden kahit ano mangyari wala siyang sama ng loob kahit kanino. ‘Yon ang ina-admire ko sa kanya na sobra siyang forgiving. Wala akong naririnig. Never siyang nagsasabi ngbad things about anyone. Gusto lang naman niya closure I suppose. Hindi ko lang alam kung kailan mangyayari yan pero sana soon para maka-move on na ‘yong dalawa,” said the cosmetic surgeon.
Meantime, Katrina’s camp is planning to appeal the court’s decision, a move which Kho’s camp is expecting. ”They have the right to appeal. It just feels good to be vindicated for him. Ang sarap ng feeling na ganito. Baka makuha na niya ‘yong lisensya niya,” Belo said. Kho’s license as a cosmetic surgeon was revoked by the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) as a result of the scandal.
