Kapamilya actor Enrique Gil has publicly apologized for his behavior on a flight from London early this week wherein things, as he put it, got “out of hand.”
In reports that surfaced online yesterday, Gil allegedly hurled hurtful words against Jessy Mendiola, and even his love team partner Liza Soberano after seemingly having had one drink too many. It is said that it reached the point actor Luis Manzano has had to stand up for Mendiola.
“I wanna apologize to my brothers and sisters from Star Magic,” Gil said in an exclusive interview with Mario Dumawal on “TV Patrol.” “I sincerely apologize to Jessy (Mendiola), to JM (de Guzman) if ever I offended them in any away.”
“I am sorry and ’yun lang po, tao lang, nagkakamali. We all makes mistake, but you hold up to it, you learn from it, and you move forward.”
In a previous report by Bulletin Entertainment, actors Jake Cuenca and Paulo Avelino, both alleged to have given Gil drinks during the flight, refused to give details on what really happened.
“Hindi po ako makakapagsalita for anyone kasi hindi naman po ako spokesperson ng kahit sino,” Cuenca said when asked on the matter.
Avelino, on the other hand, deemed it prudent to just “wait for Enrique’s official statement.”
On “TV Patrol,” Enrique said that for him, the incident is the “first and last time.”
“I just wanna say sorry po again,” he said without confirming anything more about the rumors.
Soberano, who was with Gil during the interview, thanked fans for “understanding” and being there for Gil when he needed them. Note that before breaking his silence on the subject, Gil had been posting God-centric quotes on his Instagram page.
“Sana, kahit po nangyari po ’yung mga nangyari ’wag kayong (the fans) magsasawa na magpakita ng pagmamahal, and to support Quen (Enrique),” Soberano said.
Gil echoed Soberano’s call.
“Thank you so much po sa lahat ng fans namin who are all supportive sa amin, for all the love and support. We love you and we just want you be assured that we’re okay, we’re fine.”
