The war between Aficionado CEO & President Joel Cruz and Brunei-based businesswoman Kathelyn "Kathy" Dupaya is not yet over and in fact, it continues to intensify.
Last month, the Lord of Scents filed a swindling case against Kathy after she allegedly robbed him P40 million pesos after he invested on her businesses in Brunei.

A week after, Kathy defended herself from the accusations not just from Joel, but from other celebrities namely Ara Mina, Sunshine Cruz, Dianne Medina, and Ynez Veneracion.
In that emotional interview, Kathy also revealed that she will file a libel case against Joel and Sunshine for damaging her reputation.

"Lord of scents Joel Cruz files 20 million pesos libel suit against businesswoman and alleged swindler Kathy Dupaya in connection w/ allegation that she ordered expired perfume from his company @abscbnnews," ABS-CBN News correspondent Mario Dumaual said in his recent tweet.
