Actress Sunshine Cruz said that Cesar Montano raped her.
Cruz filed a complaint-affidavit before the Quezon City Regional Trial Court on Tuesday morning.
It was about the Anti-Violence Against Women and their Children case against her husband, Montano.
The actress made the complaint based on an alleged incident of rape last May 2013.
On Mother’s Day, May 12, Montano allegedly barged into her residence, where she was alone, and then violently attacked her, employed physical violence and raped her.
Cruz was accompanied by her legal counsel, Atty. Bonifacio Alentajan, in the filing of the case.
She claims that Montano has committed and still continues to commit acts of violence and verbal abuse against her and her three daughters.
She can describe Montano as a very domineering, philandering husband that demanded full submission and obedience from her.

Cruz said her daughter also witnessed her father receive a text photo of Miller in a bikini.
Cruz has also been denied access to her children since July 29, despite her efforts for them to be brought home.
Cruz said this was the trigger for her to file this case against her husband.
Cruz said she is willing to lose everything except her kids.
Cruz has been a devoted wife and a mom to her children.

Meanwhile, Cruz has decided to live apart from Montano, her husband of 13 years, for good last January 2013.
