The group of Talk ‘N text and Gilas basketball star Terrence Romeo figured in a fistfight in a restaurant in Quezon City on Thursday at 4 am, but the pro player was quick to dismiss the incident, saying “there was no need to make a fuss.”
Romeo, who was taken after the incident to the Quezon City Police District’s Station 10 where declined to be interviewed, defended himself in a Twitter post.
“Im in my house right now. Im not held up in any prison or station. No need to make a fuss. Watch the cctv i believe its somewhere in social media right now. I didnt do anything. Let the video speak for itself. Anyway both camps are okay naman na. Goodnight,” said Romeo, who settled the incident amicably with a certain Darwin Pilena, a 26-year-old balikbayan.
The fight started when a fan wanted to take a picture with Romeo inside the Gilly’s Bar on Tomas Morato Avenue in Barangay South Triangle.
The wife of one of the victims—Clarissa Cabrera—said in a radio interview over dzMM that they were about to leave for home when they saw Romeo and requested to have a picture-taking with him. Cabrera said they were shocked when someone from Romeo’s entourage punched one of their companions.
