Actor Dennis Padilla has been expressing his side over the controversy involving his daughter Julia Barretto as he earlier confirmed his reported phone call with actor Gerald Anderson during the height of the issue.
Julia has been romantically linked to Gerald following the cryptic post of the actor’s former girlfriend Bea Alonzo which sparked speculations about their break up.
During his guesting in the late night show ‘Tonight With Boy Abunda,’ Dennis was asked to give his message to Gerald and Julia’s former boyfriend Joshua Garcia.
Dennis told Joshua: “Nakilala kita and formal kang humarap sa akin kaya ginagalang kita. Kung paano mo ako nirespeto, ganoon din kita nirerespeto.”
When asked about his message for Gerald, Dennis revealed that the actor has not been responding to his text messages.
Dennis said: “Parang naka-apat na text na ko dun, e. Hindi siya sumasagot, e. Dapat sagutin mo naman yung text ko.”
“Yung nilalaman ng pinagusapan namin, hindi ko puwedeng ibahagi. Pero ang totoo dun, actually, ako yung nag-text. Sabi ko, ‘Puwede mo ba akong tawagan? Si Dennis Padilla ito.’ So siguro, mga after 45 minutes tumawag naman. Tapos may niliwanag lang ako sa kanya.
“Sabi ko, ‘Anak ko yan, e. yun lang. Gusto kong malaman mo na pinapaalala ko lang na anak ko si Julia Barretto,'” Dennis added.
