TV-host comedian Romeo Librada, more popularly known as Super Tekla, became a hot trending topic on Twitter after his live-in partner accused him of sexual abuse and lack of financial support in a TV show.
An emotional Michelle Lhor Bana-ag aired out her complaints against Tekla’s alleged abusive behavior in an episode of Raffy Tulfo in Action on Tuesday.
The program first showed a video of Bana-ag and Tekla’s heated argument where the two confronted each other on financial issues.
Bana-ag accused Tekla of sexual abuse, saying that he would often force her to have sex even when she was not feeling well.
“Masama po ‘yung pakiramdam ko. Halos kada hapon po nilalagnat ako. Sumasama po yung pakiramdam ko. Ang bigat po ng ulo ko,” said Bana-ag.
“Hindi niya po maintindihan. Hindi niya po ma-respeto ‘yung ganung ano ko po kasi pina-injectionan niya po ako ng family planning, kasi hindi niya po mapigilan ang sarili niya. Gusto niya po ako galawin, para po daw safety,” she added.
Bana-ag also complained about Tekla’s alleged negligence towards their child, saying that he would not give them financial support every time she refused him.
“Mumurahin niya po ako. Hindi na po siya kikibo. Hindi po siya bibili ng pagkain kahit po nagugutom na ‘yung mga pamangkin ko na nandito,” said Bana-ag.
She continued, “Nagiiyakan na, nagugutom na ‘yung mga bata. Nagmamakaawa na ako sa kanya bumili na s’ya ng pagkain. Hindi niya po inaatupag yung anak namin. Yung inaatupag niya yung pagba-vlog.”
Bana-ag also recounted an incident where Tekla allegedly did a lewd act and forced her to engage in sexual activity in the presence of minors.
“Minsan po isang beses, nung last week lang katabi ko ‘yung pamangkin ko, naglalaro sa cellphone. Naawa po ako. Nagtakip na lang po siya ng kumot. Wala po akong magawa, eh. Kailangan po magpadala sa mga pamangkin ko. Kahit po masama ang pakiramdam ko.”
Bana-ag, however, clarified that Tekla has already quit his vices a year ago.
Tekla was previously caught in a controversy after he left Wowowin as a co-host after an alleged rift with main host Willie Revillame. He now co-hosts the comedy program The Boobay and Tekla Show (TBATS) on GMA.
Tulfo has promised to help Bana-ag file a formal complaint against the comedian. A lawyer on the show advised her to file complaints for child abuse, sexual violence and marital rape.
As of writing, Tekla or his home network GMA has not released a statement addressing the accusations.
