A few days ago, Jacqueline made headlines after Nora Fatehi filed a defamation case against Fernandez alleging she made defamatory allegations against her to destroy her career. However, Fernandez’s lawyer Prashant Patil clarified his client has intentions to defame Nora and that she has not spoken to any media in this regard.
Etimes quoted Prashant Patil as saying, “Jacqueline has not made any statement in front of any electronic or print media against Nora or for that matter, any other person. She has consciously avoided talking about the Enforcement Directorate proceedings. Till date she has maintained the sanctity of law and because the matter is subjudice she has always avoided to speak in front of print and social media.”
