Madrigal clan heiress, 63, sues husband, 65, for concubinage; She says he’s a "serial atsay-killer" who also slept with her b reports that Susana Madrigal Bayot, 63, has sued her husband former Philippine ambassador to Mexico Francisco "Paqui" Ortigas III, 65, for concubinage.

Think of it as a Face to Face episode with "posh" participants. reports that Susana Madrigal Bayot, 63, has sued her husband former Philippine ambassador to Mexico Francisco "Paqui" Ortigas III, 65, for concubinage.


In a sworn statement filed at the Office of the City Prosecutor in Pasig, Bayot said:  "Paqui made Wilma (one of the dozen maids in the Ortigas house in North Greenhills) his ’sex slave’ and engaged in perverted and depraved acts right in our conjugal home, in our den, in the master’s (sic) bedroom and, worst of all, in the marital bed." Her testimony was backed by the sworn statements of five other household staff. Madrigal pointed out: "Perhaps exhibiting his utter moral depravity, Paqui did not even make any effort to hide his used condoms from the other maids." Bayot also alleged that one of the other maids saw Wilma performing oral sex on Ortigas while the two were inside a walk-in closet.


But that’s just the tip of the iceberg.


Bayot also revealed that she had likewise caught her husband being intimate with another maid. noted that the said maid was  "a staffer of the publicly-listed Concrete Aggregates Corp. (where Paqui was once president)." Bayot also said that her husband also had an affair with her Assumption College classmate, Ma. Antonia Legarda.


Ortigas is listed as the chairman of the AIG Global Fund (Philippines) and Philam Bond Fund as well as other four Philam funds.


In December, Manila Standard Today had reported that Bayot and Ortigas, who have been married for almost 44 years,were splitting up because the former had learned about Ortigas’ liason with Legarda. The report noted that "Ortigas married Bayot on January 4, 1968 at the Santuario de San Jose in Greenhills." Bayot said that while "many thought that the union was a perfect match because it was a marriage of wealth, a marriage between scions of landed families," she admitted: "The painful truth is that I married an abuser, a scrooge, an incorrigible philanderer and, worse, a pervert."



Bayot had left their conjugal home in North Greenhills in July 2011 "to protect herself" from her husband, who she claimed subjected her to "insults, [his] foul temper, and baseless accusations." Back then, Ortigas also allegedly prohibited Bayot from entering their conjugal home unless he was in the house. He likewise prohibited her from getting her belongings.


Bayot revealed that it was actually she who had inadvertently led Legarda "into the arms of her husband" because she invited the latter to stay in their house. That was because Legarda was having "financial problems." Then, report noted, "in August 2008, [she also] pushed the jobless Legarda to become (her husband’s) live-in secretary in Mexico when he was appointed the country's ambassador."
