Coco Martin and Matteo Guidicelli's brawl that happened right after the Star Magic Ball event this morning at the Manila Peninsula hotel in Makati City is a case of simple misunderstanding according to a statement released by Star Magic Public Relations Manager Thess Gubi.
"What happened was just a simple misunderstanding. Both Coco and Matteo are sorry it happened. Everything has been resolved." the statemet said.
According to a report posted at PEP scoopbox, the incident happened inside the hotel where the two Kapamilya actors were seen involved in a fistfight because of Maja Salvador, Matteo's girlfriend and Coco's leading lady in the recently concluded ABS-CBN primetime teleserye "Minsan Lang Kita Iibigin".
Nagkaroon ng away sa pagitan nina Coco Martin at Matteo Guidicelli pagkatapos ng Star Magic Ball. Ayon sa report nagsuntukan daw ang dalawang Kapamilya actors sa Salon de Ning sa loob pa rin ng Manila Peninsula. Selos diumano ang ugat ng away ng dalawa dahil kay Maja Salvador, na balitang girlfriend ni Matteo at naging kapareha naman ni Coco sa isang teleserye. Ayon pa sa report, tinawag diumanong "faggot" ni Matteo si Coco kaya nagalit ang huli at sinuntok ang una. Si Maja raw mismo ang umawat sa dalawa, pero duguan daw ang mukha ni Matteo. Isang source naman ang nagsabing matagal nang may conflict sa dalawang aktor, pero hindi niya alam na aabot sa ganitong punto ang lahat."
One eyewitness, meanwhile, said Matteo started the fight but he ended up to be the most hurt in the incident.
"Mukhang okay naman sila habang naglalakad papuntang Salon de Ning pero biglang nalang parang sinasakal na ni Matteo si Coco. Then, lumaban si Coco at sinuntok si Matteo. Nagkagulo na hanggang dumating si Maja at iba pang Star Magic talents and officials para umawat. Pero mukhang badly hurt si Matteo. He's in blood." tells the eyewitness.
In "The Buzz" late this afternoon, Maja appeared on the show and talked about the incident. The "Thelma" star revealed that she and Matteo are already in a serious relationship.Although she declined to disclose the reason behind the incident, Maja admitted that she causes the two actor's fight.
