The Buzz dissects the Matteo Guidicelli-Maja Salvador-Coco Martin "connection" following the Star Magic Ball altercation in its September 4, 2011 episode.
PEP reports that actors Matteo Guidicelli and Coco Martin figured in an altercation right after the annual Star Magic Ball, which was held at Manila Peninsula Hotel’s Rigodon Ballroom on Saturday night.
According to the PEP article, Guidicelli and his date, actress Maja Salvador, ran into Martin at the Manila Pen’s Salon de Ning, where many of the Star Magic Ball guests continued to party after the event. Apparently, Guidicelli has long been rumored to have been sensitive about the fact that Salvador and Martin were paired off in the recently concluded primetime soap, Minsan Lang Kita Iibigin. The Guidicelli-Martin encounter happened in the wee hours of Sunday.
PEP quoted an unnamed eyewitness who said that it was Guidicelli who started the "fight." Another unnamed eyewitness revealed that Martin retaliated and ended up punching Guidicelli, who was later seen with a bloody mouth.
Moments after the incident, Star Magic boss Johnny Manahan was seen talking to Martin, who presumably told him his version of what happened.
