Actress Denise Laurel revealed that she was also victimized by the publicist of bilyonaryo heir Vic Consunji, Lana Faith Johnson, who was arrested for estafa last week.
Consunji’s estranged wife, Maggie Wilson, shared Laurel’s harrowing experience on her Instagram story.
The descendant of the late former President Jose P. Laurel said Johnson used her to gain favors and money from elite circles.
“She pretended and told people she was my publicist. But she wasn’t,” said Laurel.
“I attended some events for her to help her out but never made a cent and got stuck in sticky situations where I had to take care of myself in a whole different country because of her a few years back,” the actress added.
Laurel said her experience dealing with Johnson “was very very stressful and people couldn’t understand why I was stressed. It was embarrassing.”
“How awful. I’m so sorry that happened to you,” Wilson replied.
Johnson, who is marketing and public relations head at Victor Consunji Development Corp. (VCDC), had been arrested and detained on November 11 after an entrapment operation conducted by the Taguig City Police. She was caught with P82,500 marked money after issuing a “falsified receipt” for the payment of VCDC to a complainant.
Johnson runs her own marketing firm called PR Johnson and Associates.
Wilson exposed on Instagram that she had long been warning her former beau about her bad hunch towards Johnson, which fell on deaf ears.
