Claire dela Fuente, Bela Padilla‘s manager, revealed on the showbiz-oriented program Juicy! last Thursday that her talent was indeed harassed by Endless Love co-star Marian Rivera.
19-year-old Padilla plays the role of Yumi Ramirez in GMA’s primetime series Endless Love which is topbilled by Dingdong Dantes and Marian Rivera. Padilla’s character is a girlfriend of Dingdong Dantes‘ character and the two have plenty of scenes together.
According to reports, one of the scenes in the said tv series saw Bela getting too close, literally and not just figuratively, to Dingdong which ignited jealousy from Dingdong’s real life girlfriend Marian Rivera, who is also the show’s lead star.
Marian Rivera allegedly confronted Bela Padilla inside a bathroom and threaten the budding actress to avoid getting close with her boyfriend.
Here is the statement of Claire dela Fuente on Juicy! last Thursday:
“Tinawagan ko siya [Bela] kung totoo ‘yun…sinabi niya sa akin na sinigawan siya [Marian Rivera] at pagkatapos ay pumasok nga sila sa CR. Pinaalis lahat ng tao na nasa loob ng CR, pinagsabihan na ‘labas! labas kayong lahat!’ Pagkatapos ‘nun ay ni-lock niya ‘yung pinto at pagkatapos ay pinagduduro niya si Bela at sabi niya na ‘Ang pangit pangit mo!’ Ang tingin mo mai-insecure ako sa ‘yo? Ang landi landi mo!”, she said.
Popoy Caritativo, the manager of Marian Rivera on the other hand released a statement yesterday regarding Claire dela Fuente‘s claims.
“Hindi na kami magsasalita. Ginagamit lang nila si Marian. Hindi namin sila papatulan. Kahit sa GMA, hindi na kami magsasalita,” was his short response.
So who do you think among the two talent managers is telling the truth?
