In an interview with talk show host Cristy Fermin on Cristy Fer Minute, Iwa Moto challenged actress Jodi Sta. Maria to sue her for libel, ABS-CBNNews.com reports. She claimed that Jodi allegedly had an affair with Iwa's ex-boyfriend, Mickey Ablan, two years ago. This was while Jodi was still with her estranged husband, Pampi Lacson. Iwa and Pampi are currently romantically involved.
"Kaya siguro hindi siya nagsasalita kasi alam niyang totoo ang sinasabi ko (Perhaps she's not talking because she knows what I'm saying is true)," Iwa is quoted as saying. "Kasi kung nagsisinungaling ako ay pwede niya akong i-demanda ng libel. Pero malakas po ang loob ko dahil alam ko sa aming dalawa kung sino ang nagsisinungaling at sino ang nagsasabi ng totoo. (Because if I were lying, she can just sue me for libel. But I'm confident about this because I know who's lying and who's telling the truth between the two of us.)"
Iwa said she had evidence of the affair and that Jodi was most likely keeping quiet so that she would not reveal it. "Kasi naniniwala pa din po siya na inosente siya. Hindi porke't mukhang inosente ay inosente na siya. (Because she also believes that she's innocent. Even if she looks innocent, it doesn't mean she is.)"
The actress reiterated that she didn't cause Jodi and Pampi's breakup. She confessed that she met Pampi two years ago to tell him about Jodi's alleged affair.
