The lawsuit followed the online fued between Adarna and Eleila’s mother Myra Santos. The issue began when the actress posted a photo of Eleila seemingly trying to take a sneaky photo of her and Cruz while eating a meal at a restaurant in Makati.

Eleila denied the actress’ accusation saying that she was only trying to take a photo of their food. The teenager said that she didn’t have a clue about Adarna’s identity and had no reason to take their picture.
