Robin Padilla admits he married Mariel Rodriguez in India on August 19
In the wake of the brouhaha over his supposed Ibaloi wedding to TV host-actress Mariel Rodriguez in Baguio City, Robin Padilla finally came clean last night.
In his interview with Tina Monzon Palma on ANC’s The World Tonight, the actor admitted: "Ako po ay sa kauna-unahang pagkakataon ay magsasalita na... Ako po ay maligayang-maligaya na ibabalita sa inyo na isang buwan na po kaming kasal ni Mariel Rodriguez. Ang kasal po na ’yan ay nangyari sa India, sa Taj Mahal. August 19 po kami ikinasal. (I’m speaking for the very first time... I am very happy to tell you all that Mariel Rodriguez and I have been married for [a little more than] a month now. We got married in India, at the Taj Mahal. We got married on August 19.)"
Rodriguez later joined Padilla and Palma before the news show wrapped up. The couple revealed that the wedding ceremony was performed at a mosque located near the Taj Mahal. Padilla, known for his grand romantic gestures, emphasized the significance of getting hitched at the world-famous "monument to love."
Padilla and Rodriguez also appeared live on ABS-CBN’s late night entertainment show SNN, where the latter’s manager Boy Abunda is a host. There, Padilla told Abunda, "Sorry sa nangyaring pagtatanan. (Sorry for the elopement.)" Rodriguez likewise disclosed that she has not converted to Islam (Padilla’s religion) and Padilla is not asking her to do so.
