Ara Mina Drops Libel Charges Against Sister Cristine ReyesAra Mina is dropping the libel charges she filed against her younger sister Cristine Reyes. This was confirmed when she was asked by media reporters when she attended the recent 50th anniversary celebration of German Moreno held at the Resorts World last April 24. She revealed that the two of them often hang out with each other now to catch up after the many months that they were not in speaking terms.
The actress revealed that she is yet to formally withdraw the legal complaint she filed against Reyes. She said she would set an appointment with her lawyer to initiate the process of case withdrawal. Mina reiterated that it is just awkward for the charge to go on now that they are in good terms again. She reminded the press that she already gave this condition before for her to pull out the complaint.
The sisters are contemplating about having a joint interview to clear all issues. But Mina said for now, that has to wait because they are still both busy with their own respective commitments. She also said they are still spending more quality time with each other to make up for the lost moments.
Mina disclosed that she is seeing significant changes in the attitude of her sister. She assured the reporters that she is sure about this as they often see each other. Mina said she once told Reyes that she still feels awkward especially after the stress caused by their feud that went public. But she is feeling the sincerity in all of Reyes’ gestures.
Mina and Reyes often text each other now. Mina said Reyes is even more vocal now about how she feels. She disclosed that Reyes would often text her ‘I love you.’ Now, Mina attests that blood is truly thicker than water.
Apologies to boyfriend
Mina has revealed that one of the factors that made her forgive Reyes was when the latter talked to her (Mina’s) boyfriend Bulacan Mayor Patrick Meneses. Reyes personally asked for his forgiveness while crying. Reyes even thanked Meneses for being there for her older sister.
The sisters even realized that some people have aggravated their past gap. But Mina said they have both forgiven all of those. It is not clear whom she is talking about.
Mina ended the interview by saying that she also learned her lesson from the feud, which lasted more than a year. She shared that siblings should find time to communicate with each other regularly.
Mina filed a libel case against Reyes early in 2012 after the latter sent her disgraceful text messages. The two were embroiled in a feud that was made open to the public since they are both celebrities. Reyes asked for forgiveness several times during TV interviews. But Mina managed to remain firm because she said she still wasn’t feeling her sincerity. The two made amends and decided to let bygones be bygones last Holy Week. Consequently, he family celebrated the Easter Sunday together.
