Sarah Geronimo’s personal bodyguard sent his message out for Matteo Guidicelli on live television. Jerry Tamara claimed that the athlete-actor punched him in the throat after he was ordered to maintain close contact with Sarah.
The security aide told news anchor Raffy Tulfo on News 5’s Aksyon sa Tanghali that he is ready to file a criminal case against Matteo.
He then asked Matteo to remain truthful with their stories.
“Yung totoo lang po. Alam niyo at alam nung buong pamilya niyo na sinapak niyo ako sa leeg,” he said.
Jerry said that Matteo’s attorney and mother apologized for his behavior. “Yung attorney niyo pa po at si mommy niyo at yung isang bisita niyo humingi pa ng pasensya sa akin na nasapak niyo daw ako dahil sa galit,” he said.
“Hindi naman po pwede yun sasapakin niyo ako dahil galit kayo, wala naman po akong ginagawa sa inyo,” he shared.
In a phone interview with ABS-CBN News’ Mario Dumaual, Matteo denied punching a bodyguard, saying, “Wala akong sinuntok.” (READ: Matteo Guidicelli ‘did not punch anyone during civil wedding’ with Sarah Geronimo, says witness.)
Viva big boss Vic del Rosario, who arrived at the wedding reception as the commotion broke out, said he did not witness Matteo punching the security detail.
He also said he was able to talk to Sarah the morning after the wedding and she told him no such thing happened.
“Wala siyang nakita at wala siyang alam na sinuntok daw ang bodyguard ni Matteo. So ayon kay Sarah, hindi totoo yun. Walang baril, walang lahat, wala siyang nadinig,” he said.
