It appears the lovely Marian Rivera has found herself a new 'enemy'.
Earlier today, her fellow Kapuso-star Heart Evangelista held a press conference and shared details about their rift.
"Dalawang beses po niya ang akong pinasok doon sa kuwarto ko at sinigawan po niya ako, may nasabi siya po sa akin na natakot po ako. May pagbabanta. Tulad na lang ng papatayin ako ng mga fans niya," an obviously bothered Heart told ABS-CBN News.
She followed up, "Nagkakagulo na po. Ang dami ko na pong death threats sa fans ni Marian. May mga death threats na bubuhusan daw nila ako ng asido, hiniintay nila ako. Hindi na po biro. Nakakabulabog."
Thou shall not mention Dingdong Dantes
According to Heart, it all started when she made a statement that she looks forward to working with Dingdong Dantes, Marian Rivera's boyfriend.
Apparently, somebody told Marian of Heart's future plans, which led to a confrontation during a 'Temptation Island' shoot in Ilocos Norte.
Earlier, Popoy Caritativo - Marian Rivera's talent manager - sent a text message to SNN regarding this issue. It goes --
I have spoken with Marian earlier and we have decided that for the sake of peace and out of respect to GMA, she will no longer speak about this incident so that the issue can be put to rest. She has already said her piece on this matter before and has already moved on from it. Although it's hard for her to remain silent, she knows that there are times that peace is the better option. So she chooses peace. And she hopes that her supporters and fans would respect her decision. Marian sends them her love and gratitude. Thank you.
