The close-in body guard of Pop star Sarah Geronimo was reportedly punched by actor Matteo Guidicelli and sustained a contusion on the anterior neck after he leaked their “secret” wedding to the mother of the pop star in Taguig City, Thursday, a police blotter revealed.
Colonel Celso Rodriguez, Taguig Police chief, said Jerry Tamara, a bodyguard of Geronimo, reported to them that the actor punched him in the neck.
“The close-in bodyguard, Tamara, went to our office and reported that he was punched by Guidicelli on the neck after he accused him that he told Mommy Divine about their wedding,” he said.
According to a police blotter, the incident transpired at Shangri-La Hotel in Bonifacio Global City at around 11 p.m. on Thursday.
Geronimo’s mother, who is known in the show business as Mommy Divine arrived at the venue of the wedding and was asking to speak to her daughter in private, because she was not informed about the wedding, Tamara told cops.
“Pinagdududahan na raw ni Mommy Divine na magpapakasal nang lihim ‘yung dalawa kaya inutusan niya si Tamara na i-inform siya sa pinupuntahan nila (Mommy Divine was already suspecting that they will wed in secret, so she ordered Tamara to inform her about their whereabouts),” Rodriguez said.
Guidicelli, upon learning about the leak, reportedly got mad and accused Tamara of telling Mommy Divine about the private wedding.
“The actor suspected Tamara as the one who told Mommy Divine, so he reportedly punched him on the neck,” the police chief said.
Rodriguez said that Tamara has not yet filed a case, saying they are waiting for him to file a formal complaint against Guidicelli.
“He did not say that he will not file. That is why we are still waiting for him to file a formal complaint to us,” he told the Manila Bulletin.
A highly reliable source at the Taguig-Pateros District Hospital said Tamara went to their hospital for medical examination, and obtained a medical report that he could use in filing a complaint against the actor.
