MANILA, Philippines — In an interview with Raffy Tulfo (In Actiion), the close-in security detail of singer-actress Sarah Geronimo in the name of Jerry Tamara confirmed that indeed actor Matteo Guidicelli “punched” him.
Tamara confired this during a tell-all during a radio interview with broadcast personality Raffy Tulfo on Monday even as he also made it clear that he did not inform Geronimo’s mother, Divine, of the Sarah-Matteo secret civil wedding at a certain hotel n Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City Monday night.
“Sabi nung lalaki (Matteo) sa akin, ‘Huwag ka makialam dito, asawa ko ‘to.’ Sabi ko, ‘Sir, hindi naman po ako nakikialam. Gusto ko lang po, bago umalis si Ma’am Sarah, mag-usap muna ‘yung mag-ina.’ Dun na po niya ako binanatan,” Tamara said.
In an interview earlier, Guidicelli denied “punching anyone” but Tamara insists that the actor did hurt him and he would file a complaint against him.
Sarah Geronimo remains silent until this moment on the incident.
“Hindi ko talaga alam na kinasal, hindi ko alam na may kasalang nangyari,” Tamara told Tulfo.
“Nagtext sakin si Ma’am Sarah na mauna na kami umuwi. Syempre yung amo ko si Ma’am Divine. Syempre magrereport kami sa kanya, na ‘Ma’am for info lang po, si Ma’am Sarah nagtext po samin na pinapauna na po ako umuwi. Ano po gagawin namin?’ Sabi nya ‘Standby kayo dyan, papunta na ako, malapit lang ako,’” Tamara narrated.
“Kinakausap niya (Sarah) yung mommy nya, ‘Mommy, stop na.’ Tapos nagkakapalitan na yung daddy ni Sir Matteo saka mommy ni Sir Matteo saka si Ma’am Divine ng salita na pangit,” Tamara narrated.
Tamara also added that he brought mother and daughter to another room for them to them talk before Viva President Vic del Rosario arrived at the scene.
At this juncture, Tamara said he noticed Sarah was leaving with Guidicelli’s family through the fire exit while Mrs. Geronimo and Del Rosario were talking.
“Nagsabi ako kay Ma’am Divine, ‘Ma’am for info lang po si Ma’am Sarah dadalhin na ng pamilya ni Sir Matteo. Ano po gagawin ko ma’am?’ Sabi niya, ‘Sundan mo, wag mo hihiwalayan,’” said Tamara.
He then asked Geronimo to talk to her mother and it was where the supposed scuffle unfolded. (ISMAEL AMIGO/sovereignph.com)
