Rumors about Derek Ramsay's marriage to an Indian-Filipina model is true.
ABS-CBN News was able to secure from the National Statistics Office a copy of the marriage contract of "Derek Arthur Ramsay" and "Mary Christine Jolly" a Las Pinas born Indian-Filipina model.
They were married last April 3, 2002 in Balagtas, Bulacan, officiated by then Balagtas Mayor Reinaldo Castro in his office at 3 p.m..
Mary Christine was 21 at that time. Two witnesses signed the marriage contract.
According to Atty. Jean Ferry, a family legal expert, Derek's marriage with Mary Christine is still considered legal.
“If the certificate of marriage has no annotation that is required, then on its face, the marriage is still subsisting and still valid...To other persons, he is still married,” she said also in the "TV Patrol" report.
Derek who was obviously shaken with the sudden revelation has left the matter to his lawyers.
“My lawyers are taking care of the various legal options that we have and handle the issue. It’s being taken care of as we speak,” he said.
“This is a very personal matter which I'll share with everyone and have to face in the coming months.... For me, just like all the other intrigues that happen every month, I'll focus on work, and for those who have given support, I want to say thank you and to let you know that she (Angelica) stands by me and our relationship is very strong,” he added.
During the interview Angelica stood by Derek, calm and relaxed.
“Siyempre, gusto naming harapin na masaya, ‘di ba? So tina-try namin ang best namin na labanan ito, na okay kami,” Angelica said.
The issue became a buzz recently in social networks, after it was rumored that Derek canceled his guesting in "Gandang Gabi Vice" when he learned that “TV Patrol” will air a report revealing that he is married. With Karen Valeza
