According to a report by TV Patrol Weekend, the commotion started when Tulfo saw Claudine having a flare-up at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) Teminal III.
According to some witnesses, the actress, together with his husband Raymart Santiago, arrived in Manila around noon today from their Boracay vacation but their baggage were missing. Barretto was reportedly pissed-off and started scolding and cursing a Cebu Pacific staff.
Mon Tulfo, who came from Davao on the other hand, saw Claudine’s flare up and started to take a video using his camera phone. Raymart Santiago approached the tv host and then a fist fight occured, which according to reports, also involved Claudine and their entourage.
Two versions of the story are now being presented in the news: the first one, Tulfo started the fight and the second one, Raymart started the fight.
Claudine claims that Tulfo kicked her on her thigh and pushed her hardly towards the counter. She has a photo of the bruises that she sustained (now circulating on Twitter) to prove it.
Tulfo, on the other hand, claims he was attacked not only by Raymart but also several men who belong to the couple’s entourage.
The two camps filed separate complaints at the Investigation and Intelligence Division of the NAIA Police Station.
Tulfo refused to show the video taken from his camera phone.
Raymart and Claudine, meanwhile, insisted that the video from the CCTV camera be used as evidence.
