Pinay Gets Nothing from Late British Husband after Refusing His Children’s Php650k Offer

A Filipina named Rosita Hendry lost her battle in court over a share of her late British husband’s massive fortune – and she is left with nothing, especially after refusing her stepchildren’s offer of plane tickets to the Philippines and £10,000 (Php642,500).

Rosita married a rich British guy named Michael Hendry in 2003. Michael is older by 20 years, but the age gap did not really matter much to the love birds as they lived happily at their palatial home in East Molesey, Surrey. A rich guy, Michael owned a house that was worth £220,000 (Php14.1 million).

But as the years went by, Rosita claimed that Michael was always drinking. In turn, Michael said she had boyfriends. He wrote her off his will, leaving his entire estate to his two children from a previous relationship.

The relationship between Rosita and Michael had turned so sour that the Filipina began divorce proceedings by the time Michael passed in 2017 at age 70.

Since Rosita had signed a prenup that she would get £10,000 (Php642,500) and plane tickets for home if the marriage didn’t work out or other eventualities, Michael’s children offered to give her that amount.

When she refused, they would later agree to split the estate and all the property by three, but Rosita wanted more. Instead of splitting Michael’s assets in three, she wanted the children to receive only half of it while she got the other half.

She took them to court, but 2 years later, the court ruled that the children had all the rights to the estate because they were named in Michael’s will – and Rosita missed the 6-month limit to lodge a claim. She gets nothing. The children are no longer offering her the cash and tickets for home as she had initially refused them.

Rosita is now stuck in England. Many netizens commented that she should have taken the children’s offer, especially because she knew that her late husband had written her off his will!

What is a Will?

A will is a legal document that a person makes to indicate how his/her property will be distributed. The will also names the executor of the will and will manage the property until the final distribution. Disposal of the will is a matter of custom but must be made in accordance with what the person wishes, as long as it is within legal boundaries.

For example, there are times when the person creates a will that leaves the family with nothing but the entire estate is left to some unrelated person, an organization, or even a pet.

During the course of the investigation over the incident, e-jeep driver Jowel Espiritu got involved in the case after netizens pointed out that he was the one who told ‘Linda’ to go after Tatay Alex. After learning about that, Tatay Alex decided to include him in the case.

But the e-jeep company suspended the driver because of the case he is facing. This led Tatay Alex to hesitate about the case against the driver. After Tulfo explained to him that the driver must have done that to protect his passenger, a female one at that, who claimed that someone had touched her. Other drivers, particularly dads, would have acted the same way.

With that in mind, Tatay Alex changes his mind and withdraws the case against the e-jeep driver. But for Linda, it is “Tulo ang kaso!” Tulfo and netizens cheered after learning that he’s still so sure about filing the case against Linda and her family, knowing that they did him a lot of wrong.

Singaporean Gets Scammed by Cousins as Both Married, One Husband Wants to File Case

A Singaporean guy who tried to seek help from Raffy Tulfo found himself in deeper trouble than the ex-GF he’s complaining about, because she brought the husband of his current girlfriend! The husband now wants to file a case against the Singaporean – and unlucky for the latter, Tulfo is willing to help the guy out and provide him with a lawyer. Uh oh.

Choo Chai Huah originally wanted to seek help from Raffy Tulfo against his former caregiver and girlfriend, Mary Jane Desamito. He wants to get all his money back, amounting to over Php11 million, but she insists that she worked hard for it and wouldn’t return anything. After all, the properties and money she received were supposed to be her reward for the good work she did for him and his business.

But Mary Jane brought the husband of Mr. Choo’s current girlfriend, Jonalyn Fronda – and she happens to be her cousin! It turned out that Jonalyn lied to Mr. Choo, saying she’s in the process of divorcing her husband.

The husband is sure that he will file a case against Mr. Choo and Jonalyn; thought he told Jonalyn he wouldn’t do that when they were given a chance to talk. He later told Tulfo it was just ‘usapang kalye’ because he was afraid as he didn’t have money and no capacity to file a case. Tulfo laughed, saying he has no problem with providing him with a lawyer should he want to pursue the case.

The Singaporean was rather shocked to learn that Tulfo is helping Jonalyn’s husband, saying that he was the one who went for help first. Tulfo explained that it doesn’t work that way because the program will help anyone with a valid complaint. While Mr. Choo’s complaint is valid, his evidence is too weak to hold water in court – but he could face more trouble if Jonalyn’s husband will pursue the case.

This also refers to really absurd stories and claims of things they are supposed to do, but won’t actually follow through.

Pregnant Teacher Walks for 2-3 Hours, Goes Through Rocky Sea and Cliffside Paths to Reach School

She’s already 9 months pregnant and could actually give birth anytime, but Jay Ann Salibio continues to serve the students of Patag Elementary School Annex in San Jose, Occidental Mindoro because there’s still no substitute teacher to fulfill her place.

But what’s so challenging is that the teacher has to walk 2-3 hours just to reach the school, passing through a rocky sea portion and cliffside paths. When it is high tide, the water reaches up to the chest and could get rather difficult for them to walk because the sharp stones could hurt their bodies and feet.

Moreover, one wrong move on the cliffside paths could send them plunging several feet below! Obviously having a difficult time walking towards her school but having no choice, Teacher Jay Ann could only hope that the Department of Education (DepEd) would send her a substitute teacher as soon as possible.

At the time the video was made, she’s 12 days to her due date; however, moms know that the due date isn’t a sure date – she could give birth anytime soon! The other teachers in the school are willing to substitute for her classes, if the need arises, without additional pay.

Teacher Jay Ann recalls that she was actually quite excited to learn that she got accepted at Patag Elementary School some 4 years. But she was surprised when the ‘patag’ (flats or plains) turned out to be not ‘patag’ at all!

They had to walk several hours to reach school. This pushed her and her fellow teachers to pay for a bahay kubo to be made at the school where they could stay for the entire week, so they don’t have to walk every single day.

Thankfully, a substitute teacher was finally approved to replace Teacher Jay Ann. Watch the continuation of the video here:
