Elçin Sangu was Defne Topal in the comedy ‘I rent you my love’
Bad news for Elçin Sangu. After more than six years of litigation, Turkish justice has agreed with his former agent Başay Okay, who denounced the fraudulent dismissal to which she was subjected by the actress in 2016. The sentence forces the protagonist of ‘I rent you my love’ to pay compensation totaling almost four million Turkish liras: 1 million 350 thousand in compensation and 2 million 378 thousand in interest for all the jobs that the actress has accepted in recent years.
When the litigation began, both parties tried to resolve their differences in the most amicable way possible but, failing to reach an agreement, the case has dragged on until now and could continue with the appeal of the actress, who has already responded making it clear that he believes in his innocence and is not going to give up.
Elçin has responded to the ruling with a statement
The news of the latest ruling has spread like wildfire and there are several media outlets that have echoed the ruling. In response to this, the interpreter and her lawyer Ali Demirel have wanted to make public a joint statement in which they make it clear that, in response to the local court’s decision, they will appeal the resolution to higher instances since “it is a legal right”. In addition, Elçin has made it clear that the dossier of the case is available to anyone who wants to read it and urges the press and his own fans to read it and draw their own conclusions. “I have been silent until now but enough is enough! I haven’t told what they did to me until today, but I’m not going to shut up anymore!”
I’ve been silent until now, but enough is enough! I have not told what has been done to me until today, but I will not be silent anymore! This is my open invitation to all of you. Love… pic.twitter.com/PDZJu1rweO

Başay Okay: “Even if this case was worth 1 lira, I would have fought”
The star’s former agent always believed in his innocence and stood firm during the trials, which took place last summer: “Elçin Sangu, in addition to unfairly terminating our contract, did not deliver the commissions that corresponded to me for advertising contracts, but instead gave them to another manager. Everyone knows it in this industry. I am right. Six years have passed and I still continue my fight. Even if this case was worth 1 lira, I would have fought.” Finally, justice has given him the reason, although we will still have to wait for the possible resources raised by the actress’s lawyers.
Elçin Sangu was the charismatic Defne in ‘I rent you my love’
Elçin is one of the most recognizable actresses in Turkey, among other things, for her well-groomed red hair with which we fell in love in ‘I rent you my love’. Defne was a most endearing character who fell in love at first sight with Ömer İplikçi (Barış Arduç), a famous shoe designer whom she is forced to fall in love with if she wants to pay off her brother’s debt. From that moment on, The young woman lives a roller coaster of emotions that make her experience authentic moments like this one.
