Jenine Desiderio provided more details about the controversy surrounding her daughter Janella Salvador and former love team partner, Elmo Magalona – who is being accused of physically hurting the young actress.
KAMI learned that Jenine revealed that Elmo personally apologized to her for what she supposedly did to her daughter.
“In fairness, he apologized personally three weeks after the incident. After talking to the Star Magic people, he texted me asking me if he could talk to me.
“I granted his request, the following day nagkita kami and yun we had a one on one.
“That’s when he promised me about the public apology. That didn’t happen,” Jenine told PUSH.
In the same report by PUSH, Jenine also stated that both Janella and Elmo sought out professional help to deal with the trauma of what happened between them.
“Trauma. To overcome trauma. Siyempre medyo hindi madali yung pinagdaanan niya and we just want to make sure that she can cope,” she explained.
As for Janella publicly accusing Elmo of hurting her, Jenine said that her daughter decided to speak out about it since Elmo did not fulfill his promise to air a public apology.
“Finally, the truth came out na and yun lang naman yung hinihingi namin. And hindi naman siya basta-basta magsasalita kung sana meron lang earlier admission that they also promised from their end,” the celebrity mom said.
As for any plan to file charges against Elmo, Jenine refused to comment about it.
In a previous report by KAMI, Janella and Elmo performed together in Canada despite their issues since they were already committed to the show abroad before the controversy arose.
Elmo and Janella’s love team was called “ElNella” by their fans. They starred together in movies such as “Bloody Crayons” and “My Fairy Tail Love Story.”
Janella was also recently seen on a date with actor Marco Gumabao.
