Heart Evangelista claims Marian Rivera attacked and threatened her
(SPOT.ph) Actress Heart Evangelista has revealed her side of the story regarding the alleged rift between her and Temptation Island co-star Marian Rivera, reports PEP.ph. Previous reports showed that the two GMA stars had a falling out while filming the movie . Evangelista, who was in Brazil when the issue first broke out, was unable to comment until today’s press conference at Barrio Fiesta restaurant in Greenhills, San Juan.
Evangelista said that the "friction" between her and Rivera began two days before Temptation Island wrapped up shooting in Ilocos Norte. According to Evangelista, Rivera barged into her room and yelled at her. The Amaya star allegedly threatened Evangelista with a "Papatayin ka ng mga fans ko (My fans will kill you)!" In earlier reports, Evangelista pointed at Rivera’s fans for tampering with her Twitter account.
Evangelista also clarified the rumor involving her mom Cecile Ongpauco, who allegedly yelled at Rivera to "stay away from (her) daughter" when the former saw the actress at the airport. According to Evangelista, there was no interaction between her mother and Rivera.
Also present at the press con were Evangelista's lawyers Archimedes Gonzales and Camille Sevilla. "My client has been portrayed as the assailant. This is false. She was not the assailant but the assailed. She was not the offender, but the victim," Gonzales said. They clarified that they have no plans to sue Rivera and only wanted to air Evangelista's side.
Since the feud blew up, Evangelista said four of her endorsements have been put "on hold" and a potential TV project has been shelved.
