Miss Philippines Universe Celeste Cortesi Sued For Copyright Infringement!

NEW ORLEANS, Louisiana (The Adobo Chronicles, New Orleans Bureau) – What was supposed to be a heroic, flying moment for Miss Philippines Celeste Cortesi at the Miss Universe National Costume Competition has turned out to be a legal nightmare.

The estate of Mars Ravelo is suing Cortese for copyright infringement when she donned a “Darna” costume at the pageant this week.

Ravelo was a Filipino comic book cartoonist and graphic novelist who created many Filipino classics including Darna.

The Adobo Chronicles tried to reach Cortesi in New Orleans but her team told us she was busy preparing for the pageant finals and coronation this weekend.
