Philippine President Duterte To Sue American Singer-Actress Bette Midler For Libel


A20777A2-E83B-4D31-9CAE-48F3991E99DAMANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – While international news media scrambled to obtain a video of President Rodrigo Duterte singing a love song during the gala dinner for heads of state attending the ASEAN Summit in Manila, American singer-actress Bette Midler meddled in Philippine affairs through a nasty tweet.

Midler called Duterte a “murderous dictator.”


Duterte is known for his extreme tolerance for criticism, but he has had enough.

Today, the popular Filipino leader said he has instructed his attorney general to file a libel case against Midler.

Although Midler is in the United States, Duterte said he is filing the case “from a distance.”

Incidentally, “From a Distance” is one of Midler’s hit songs.

How appropriate!
