Daniel Padilla and JC de Vera’s intense scuffle during the Star Magic celebrity basketball game became controversial. Daniel’s father, Rommel Padilla, has opened up about the issue.
KAMI learned about the veteran actor’s comments from ABS-CBN News.
According to Rommel, he also plays basketball so he knows how physical a game can be.
"Nagba-basketball din ako, kasali sa laro 'yon... Physical game ang basketball,” Rommel said.
(I also play basketball, and physicality is part of the game… Basketball is a physical game.)
He added that the competitiveness of the players, including Daniel and JC, added to the physicality of their intense match.
“Nagkataon gustong manalo ng isa, gusto ring manalo ng isa. Nagkaroon ng box out dito. It's part of the game,” he explained.
(It just so happened that both of them wanted to win. They were boxing out each other. It’s part of the game.)
JC has revealed in a separate interview that he spoke to Rommel about the issue. JC and Rommel are both regular cast members of the Kapamilya show “The Better Half.”
"Nag-usap na kami. Sabi niya, very natural lang 'yon, kasi basketball.”
(We have spoken. He said that what happened was very natural because we were playing basketball.)
JC and Daniel have also spoken and apologized to each other.
