Rivermaya Belongs to Lizza Nakpil


Rivermaya has undergone changes in the band’s line-up over the years. Bamboo, Nathan Azarcon and Rico Blanco were the first ones to leave the band but have made names for themselves with their respective new bands. The only original member in the current line up is Mark Escueta, the drummer. He applied for the intellectual property rights of Rivermaya under his own name but it was denied because apparently, Lizza Nakpil owns the name of the band. Former Rivermaya manager and creator, formed the band together with business partner Chito Rono back in 1993. Lizza reiterates that anything that the current Rivermaya has done without her consent will constitute a violation of law and those who have violated will be subject to legal action.

The charge sheet had the statements: “(Gutierrez), being the driver, in-control and in-chare of a Nissan GT-R sedan… willfully, unlawfully and feloniously manage without due regard to traffic laws… by driving the said motor vehicle at speeds grossly in excess of the limits allowed by law (bumped) a Meralco concrete post and three coconut trees with tremendous impact causing multiple injuries to… Nomar Pardo y Estes which resulted to the latter’s untimely death to the damage and prejudice of his heirs,”

Richard and Nomar were both sent to the hospital because of injuries however Nomar did not survive. Richard worked until 12 midnight but still insisted to drive. The road was slippery but the prosecutors found the reason to believe that Richard neglected the warning to slow down towards the curve.

Ruffa Gutierrez Show “Rude” Behavior on Her Twitter Followers


Ruffa Gutierrez followers in Twitter were shocked at this kind of behaviour Ruffa showed them. It started with Ruffa tweeting about the ending of the movie “In My Life”. Then some followers of her didn’t appreciate it because obviously, the film wasn’t shown in the cinemas yet. Some felt it was so inconsiderate of her to do that which I believe caused the Twitmob against her. Ruffa received negative reactions through her Twitter and as a retraction, she privately messaged these individuals. Here are some of the screenshots of the direct messages of Ruffa.


One twitpic made me curious because it seemed that it wasn’t Ruffa who was tweeting after all. One direct message said that Ruffa has assistants who tweet in behalf of her. So if that’s the case, probably it was the assistants who revealed the ending of “In My Life”?
