Internet personality Xander Ford — Marlou Arizala in real life — was arrested Tuesday night over the physical abuse and sexual assault complaint filed by his ex-girlfriend.
Xander was nabbed in Pasay City Tuesday night following a warrant of arrest issued by the Manila Regional Trial Court Branch 38 for violating RA 9262 or Violence Against Women and their Children.
Star Image general manager David Cabawatan said in a Facebook live on Tuesday night that they are not tolerating the actions of their talent, saying Xander should face the consequences should he be found guilty in court.
“Bilang management, pupuntahan po namin siya pero we are not tolerating him kung talagang meron siyang maling ginawa at pagkakamali after ng hearing sa korte then he needs to face the consequence ng ginawa niya.”
Xander, who is currently placed under indefinite suspension by his talent agency, denied the allegations but asked for forgiveness from his ex-girlfriend.
“Wala naman akong ginawang masama sa kanya, pero hihingi na lang po ako ng tawad sa kanya. Magpapakababa na lang po ako. Sana mapatawad mo ako, sana maawa ka sa akin kasi ako lang inaasahan ng pamilya ko. Sana magkaayos na tayo. Willing naman ako na kausapin ka,” said Xander.
Last June, Xander became a trending topic on Twitter after his ex-girlfriend accused him of physical and sexual abuse in public Facebook post.
