At the drama-filled Senate inquiry today, Hayden Kho told Sen. Jinggoy Estrada that it was Halili who told him to take Ecstasy before they slept together at the Holiday Inn in 2007, reports gmanews.tv. "She asked me to take drugs. I told her just one, but she insisted that I take two, since it won't have that much effect...Every time we see each other there was no conversation. It was all drugs and sex," Kho said.
Halili denied not just giving him Ecstasy, but that she ever took drugs. "He tricked me into believing that he had long wanted me. I loved him...I was young so I was easily blinded," she tearfully said in Tagalog, even lashing out at him and crying "Ang kapal ng mukha mo!" at one point.
As for Halili's denial about taking drugs, Kho said, "I challenge Ms. Halili to take the drug test using her hair." Kho explained that drugs cannot be traced in a person's bloodstream eight days after it is taken but can be detected "for years to come" on a person's hair, reports gmanews.tv.
