Actress Sunshine Cruz filed a case against her estranged husband, actor Cesar Montano for allegedly violating Republic Act 9262, or the Anti-Violence against Women and their Children Act.
Cruz earlier filed a temporary protection order against Montano.
The actress took to the image-sharing site Instagram to send a message to Montano, asking him to return their three daughters to her.
Montano allegedly told their children that they won’t be able to see their dad forever once they come back to Sunshine.
The said post immediately earned more than 350 ‘likes”’and numerous comments, has since been deleted.
The actress, however, posted a ‘thank you’ and a ‘follow-up message.’
Meanwhile, Cruz has decided to live apart from her husband of 13 years for good after Montano was romantically linked to starlet Krista Miller.
Miller was Cesar’s leading lady, who recently appeared in a film alongside the 50-year-old actor.
Before the controversial breakup involving Miller, the celebrity couple, by Cruz’s admission, had gone through several rough patches due to Montano’s questionable relationship with his co-workers.
However, Cruz admitted that she and Montano have decided to be friends again for the sake of their children.
