Dubbed as the newest internet scandal, the audio puts ABS-CBN’s hottest young actor Daniel Padilla on the midst of controversy as netizens point a finger to the Teen King for cursing and making fun of other celebrities.
The audio was extracted from a video which was allegedly taken secretly while Daniel and his cousin RJ Padilla were having a conversation. Thus, the video was dark and has no clear image that will confirm that it was indeed Daniel as one of the young men in the conversation. Some netizens, however, identified the voices as Daniel’s and his cousin RJ’s.
The voice that resembles Daniel’s talked about how he gets excited whenever he receives a text message from a girl which netizens speculate as Jasmine Curtis-Smith, the Teen King’s co-star in the MMFF movie “Bonifacio: Ang Unang Pangulo.”
Listen carefully here:
One of the boys in the recording said: “Wala na si Patrick. Wala nang mangugulo sa ‘kin. Wala na ‘yung tropa ni Sam.” The name Sam served as an important clue for netizens to speculate that Daniel was talking about Sam Concepcion, the boyfriend of Jasmine Curtis-Smith.
A day after the “audio scandal” circulated on YouTube, Daniel posted the following statement on his official Twitter account (@imdanielpadilla):
