Onemig Bondoc wants sole custody of his children

Onemig Bondoc has filed a petition seeking the sole custody of his two children, plus a temporary protection order against his estranged wife, French-Filipino model Valerie Bariou.

The former matinee idol talked about this legal battle on “Startalk,” a GMA showbiz-oriented show, yesterday, Jan. 10, noting that he’s doing it for his children, who are currently living with him.

The actor recalls his seven-year-old daughter Armelle expressing her support for him.

“‘Armelle, do you want Papa to stop this?’ Sabi niya, ‘If Papa stops this, Mama will have complete control over you. No, Papa, you go. You go. You fight. You fight, Papa.’”

Onemig and Valerie exchanged vows last Dec. 2009 in a civil rights ceremony. In Oct. 2013, they began living separately according to Onemig, but it was only recently that Valerie filed for an annulment.

What made him decide to break things off with Valerie?

“Siya, gusto niya, siya lang sa mundo niya, gusto niya siya lang pwedeng magkamali,” he relates. “Pero mga tao sa paligid niya, dapat hindi magkamali. So, ‘yun yung rason kung bakit ‘di ko kinaya at nakapaghiwalay na ako sa asawa ko.”

He further claims that she threw him out of their condominium unit that he himself pays for.
Onemig did a handful of Star Cinema movies, such as “Pinay Pie,” “Ngayong Nandito Ka,” “Trip,” and “Jologs.”
