Justice Secretary Leila de Lima confirmed rumors that Atty. Lorna Kapunan resigned from being the lawyer of alleged pork barrel queen, Janet Lim-Napoles on Wednesday, October 30.
When asked whether she knows why Kapunan withdrew, she simply replied, “Aba, malay ko. Hindi naman ako ang nanay niyan.”
According to online news site, Rappler, “Lawyers knowledgeable about the resignation said there was a difference in strategy between Kapunan and collaborating counsel Alfredo Villamor.”
The Plum Times, on the other hand, has contact with Atty. Kapunan, and she revealed to us why she quit as Napoles’ lawyer after the jump.
“I quit because I am going to be a full-time backup dancer for Lady Gaga,” she told The Plum Times.
“Actually, matagal ko na tong ginagawa,” she added, “Baka hindi niyo napansin na ako yung nagtulak ng wheelchair nung performance ni Gaga nung 2009 MTV Video Music Awards.”
She also pointed out that the alleged pork barrel queen herself was also a backup dancer for this generation’s queen of pop. “Ah, oo kasama ko si Netnet nun. Siya yung nakasakay sa wheelchair na tinutulak ko.”
The lawyer-turned-dancer was not present during the defense panel’s cross examination of whistleblower Benhur Luy at Branch 150 of the Makati Regional Trial Court on Wednesday, October 30.
The press also asked Villamor why Kapunan was absent, he simply replied, “Aba, malay ko. Hindi naman ako ang tatay niyan.”
The Plum Times asked Kapunan why she wasn’t telling anyone of her new career. “Well that’s because gusto ko na masurprise sila kapag nag-debut ako bilang dancer ni Gaga. Para bongga ang applause.”
Meanwhile, we also asked for a comment from Lady Gaga, but she simply responded with, “Pre-order my new album, ARTPOP, on iTunes. Out on 11/11/13″
