After Annabelle Rama’s cousin Jose Vicente Rama del Prado Jr. had accused her of estafa and of violating the Anti-Bouncing Check Law, the Gutierrez matriarch had responded on August 8 through a series of angry posts on her Twitter account.

According to, Annabelle started her tirade by sharing how Jun Lalin, the publicist of the Gutierrez family, told her about the lawsuit she is facing upon her arrival in the country after a vacation in the US. She described her cousin and his wife as social climbers while maintaining her innocence.

According to Jose Vicente’s story, Annabelle had issued him a check worth P1.5 million in exchange for funds that she used during her campaign as a Cebu City representative. Jose Vicente claims that he endorsed the check to his brother Dr. Alfonso del Prado, who exchanged it for cash. However, Annabelle’s check allegedly bounced because her checking account was already closed, prompting Jose Vicente to sue his cousin.

But in Annabelle’s tweets, she revealed that it was Jose Vicente who prompted her to close the said account. She also alleged that Alfonso cannot have given her P1.5 million because he is too stingy and challenged Jose Vicente to show her the proof that she received the P1.5 million. She also claimed that her family had always shouldered his expenses (from his transportation to his electric bills), without complaint.

She later blamed Jose Vicente for her loss in the recently concluded elections, saying that he betrayed her by siding with her rival, Raul del Mar, who won the race.

“Di ka na nahiya sa pamilya ko,” said one of her last tweets about the topic. “See u in cebu, sumipot ka sa hearing ha? Excited na akong makita ang pagmumukha mo (You still have the gall to face my family. See you in Cebu, and attend the hearing, please? I can't wait to see your face.).”
