Marian Rivera breaks down while talking about rift with Heart Evangelista at Temptation Island press con

( Marian Rivera burst into tears at the Temptation Island press conference yesterday, June 23, as she revealed details of her alleged fight with fellow GMA-7 actress Heart Evangelista, reports GMA News. Evangelista, who was co-starring in the film, was absent, reportedly vacationing with boyfriend Daniel Matsunaga in Brazil.


According to the report, Rivera had been cheerful at the press con but broke down when the topic swerved toward her fight with Evangelista. Rivera said that issues between her and her co-star cleared up when they were filming in Laoag, Ilocos. But when they returned to Manila, Rivera was shocked when, at the airport, Evangelista's mother, Cecile Ongpauco, allegedly with a team of bodyguards, yelled at her to stay away.


"Kaibigan mo, nagsusumbong sa'yo, ipinagtatanggol mo, alam mo yung gano'n. Tapos biglang gaganituhin ka na hindi mo alam kung anong dahilan na gusto niyang gawin sa akin (You defend your friend when she has troubles. And then suddenly this is happens and you don't know what she's really trying to pull)," Rivera said, chokingly.


However, Ongpauco told a network official that her daughter had been stressed about her brawl with Rivera and that she only intended to pick Evangelista up from the airport. The "bodyguards," she said, were airport security who escorted her. Some of the bodyguards had wanted to take photos with the film's stars.
