The mother of the teenager whom Ellen Adarna accused of being a "paparazzi" has spoken out and asked the actress for an apology.

The mother of the 17-year-old accused by actress Ellen Adarna as being a "paparazzi" has now spoken out and is asking Ellen for an apology.

The mother demands an apology from Ellen Adarna

A few days back, Ellen Adarna accused Eleila of being a "paparazzi". This was after Ellen accused her of taking photos in secret. Ellen Adarna then took a photo of the teen and shared it on her Instagram page, accusing her of being a paparazzi.

In response, the teenager said in a post that she was only taking an Instagram story of their food. She added that she wasn't even aware of Ellen's presence in the video.

Because of the sudden attention, the teen's mom, Myra Abo Santos, wrote an open letter on Facebook.

"After her friends told her about the ‘Instagram Story’ that you posted where she was first identified, she was mature enough to immediately write privately to you and explain the situation: that she was taking footage of her food. We initially took it lightly, thinking things would be resolved quickly and the 30-year old you would give the two minors the benefit of the doubt. Even her aunt wrote a private message to you, and mentioned she is a minor. However, we did not hear anything from you," the mother wrote.

"Instead, you posted a one sided narrative and insisted on erroneous and unfounded accusations again on Instagram. You have claimed my daughter is guilty, rude, and has been repeatedly insinuating my daughter is lying. You even said that you can handle bashers and hope my child could, too. I want to tell you that she is not like you, she never needed to. She is a private individual who has not even turned 18. As a celebrity, we would have thought you would understand the value of privacy."

They might seek legal action

Myra mentioned that the lack of response from Ellen simply means that the actress is out to defame her daughter, who is still a minor.

She wrote that the open letter was advised by their lawyer, and that they're seeking legal assistance.

However, they're still trying to reach out to Ellen and are demanding that the actress give a public apology to their daughter.

"As her family, we ask you to publicly apologise to Eleila. We prefer not to take this further, but as our only daughter, we are ready to take this wherever needed to protect her integrity. As much as no one has the right to breach your privacy, you have no right to ruin my daughter’s reputation," she adds.
