Ruffa Gutierrez

MANILA, July 18 (Mabuhay) -– Actress and television host Ruffa Gutierrez clarified that the court granted her sole custody of her 2 daughters from estranged Turkish husband Yilmaz Bektas.

Gutierrez made the announcement on her Twitter account to “clear false reports and to pacify my loved ones who are worried”.

The actress tweeted that the Quezon City Regional Trial Court Branch 107 issued a decision last March 11, 2010, giving her sole custody of her daughters Lorin and Venice.

The decision was signed by Presiding Judge Jose L. Bautista.

She added that the decision also gave her former husband Bektas visitation rights.

Gutierrez earlier appealed for prayers on Twitter as she faces what she described as “the biggest battle of her life”. However, it was not clear if she was referring to the custody battle. (MNS)
