If the reports are true, Matteo Guidicelli is now off the hook after the bodyguard who accused him of physical assault right after his wedding with Sarah Geronimo last February 20 has agreed to a cash settlement.
This was through the efforts of Viva Entertainment Chairman Vic del Rosario, who met with Sarah’s bodyguard Jerry Tamara last February 26 in his office. Tamara, in the meeting, was accompanied by Raffy Tulfo, who was approached by Tamara for help.
Sarah and Matteo were also supposed to be there at the Viva office meeting, but del Rosario said they have to fulfill commitments with their TV station ABS-CBN that day.
According to a report of ABS-CBN, Tamara agreed to accept P200,000 as settlement. He will no longer file charges against Matteo Tamara claimed that Matteo punched him on the neck for informing Sarah’s mother, Divine, of their wedding. Before this, there was a heated exchange of words between the camps of Divine and Matteo at a hotel in Bonifacio Global City.
The wedding was kept secret to the public, although columnist Ricky Lo broke the story in his column in the Philippine Star. On the day of the wedding, Sarah even attended the taping for her program in ABS-CBN. She only wore a T-shirt when she exchanged “I dos” with Matteo.
According to ABS-CBN, Tamara initially demanded P1.5 million as settlement, but del Rosario countered with P100,000. Because of this, the two parties failed to reach an agreement.
Two days later, however, Tamara reportedly accepted the P200,0000 offer from Viva, the outfit handling Sarah and Matteo.
