MANILA, PHILIPPINES — In a viral birthday video where she smeared cake icing on their waiter, Alex Gonzaga is yet again on the hot seat with netizens. However, Peter Ledesma, a longtime publicist of the Gonzaga Family, has released a statement defending the actress.
Ledesma’s statement is the first from Gonzaga’s camp regarding the issue. The entertainment columnist and vlogger claimed that the waiter, Allan, is a friend of Alex and her mother, Crisanta “Mommy Pinty” Gonzaga.
“This Allan, one of the waiters of Florabel Resto and Catering Service in Valle Verde Pasig, is a friend of Mommy Pinty Gonzaga and Soriano Family. Kaya majority of the event of Gonzaga and Soriano Family ay sila ang kinukuha ni Mommy Pinty na mag-cater ng food and beverages.
“At itong si Allan ay laging kabiruan ni Mommy Pinty and Alex at ito ang parating nagse-serve sa kanila. Kaya tuwing nagkikita ay binabati agad ni Allan ang mag-mommy, magiliw ito sa kanila.
“Hindi naman magagawa ni Alex ang magbiro at magpunas ng cake kung hindi sila magkakilala ng said waiter, na sanay na sa pagiging mapagbiro at kikay ni Alex.
“This is the side of Mommy Pinty na higit na nakakaalam ng istorya ng anak. And one more thing ay hindi totoong lasing si Alex na tulad ng pinalalabas ng kanyang detractors and bashers.”
The statement was sent to the blogger FashionPulis and entertainment journalist MJ Marfori.
