Ruffa hesitant to leave kids to Yilmaz
MANILA, Philippines - Ruffa Gutierrez recently demanded her estranged husband to put in writing his real intention in inviting their daughters to visit him in Turkey.
The actress-host said she is hesitant to leave Lorin and Venice to Turkish businessman Yilmaz Bektas without a written agreement.
"There has to be a written letter saying they'll be gone for 2 weeks and they'll come back," Gutierrez said on Thursday.
"Sa tingin mo ibabalik pa niya sa akin [sina Lorin at Venice]? Para sa akin, this is a very delicate situation."
Bektas has offered Gutierrez $2 million so the latter would allow her children to go to Turkey.
Gutierrez made it clear, however, that the amount is not necessarily for child support.
"Sa akin pinagkaloob ng korte 'yung mga bata. So for me, kailangang sundin natin ang korte na ako ang may sole custody kina Lorin and Venice and he has visitation rights here in the Philippines. Ngayon, if he would like the children to visit somewhere else, I said it's okay for the kids to visit him in America...And then siguro bago ko ipadala, kailangan ipaalam ko rin sa lawyers ko," she said.
The Quezon City Regional Trial Court has granted Gutierrez sole custody of her 2 daughters last March.
