Listen up, lady: We know you're super attractive, but that doesn't mean you can get away with anything!
Meet Jobelle Bascug, a 16-year-old Cebuana model who gained internet notoriety both for shoplifting and being pretty, thus earning herself the tag "Most Beautiful Shoplifter in Cebu." Press play on the video below to see exactly what happened:
Aside from shoplifting, it turns out that Jobelle has already received complaints for other shenanigans: running away from a P10,000 bar bill, an unpaid taxi fare, and a P4,000 van rental. We know the rulebook of life states that pretty girls are supposed to get a lot of stuff for free, but not in the Philippines. Not in the Philippines.
Around here, pretty or not, we punish you when you misbehave! Maybe Jobelle and all the mean girls out there need to hear the story of Deniece Cornejo, that Amalayer girl, and other Pinay beauties who (allegedly) gone bad! Read on!
There's Althea Altamirano, a former FHM model who plotted the kidnapping and murder of fellow model Julie Ann Rodelas as payback for spreading nasty rumors about her. "Ang plano, lulumpuhin lang siya," Althea told the authorities. "Pero hindi ko naman alam na gagahasain at papatayin pa nila. Hindi ko po alam ang ginawa nila kay [Julie]. Yun po ang totoo." We had no idea the modeling industry is this cutthroat!
There's Deniece Cornejo, another model who initially filed a rape complaint against Vhong Navarro, only to end up in jail alongside Cedric Lee and their other accomplices for allegedly committing the crimes of serious illegal detention and money extortion. "If there's a victim here, it's me," says Deniece, who maintains that she's innocent. "I'm sad that the people who came to my rescue are now put in a bad light." Something tells us this thing is far from over.
