What Really Happened To Enrique Gil While On His Way To London With Kapamilya Stars For The 'ASAP' Show

AT THE PRESSCON of Regal’s new horror flick, “Resureksyon”, Paulo Avelino was besieged by reporters who want to know if he’s really one of the two actors (the other being Jake Cuenca) who prompted Enrique Gil to drink alcoholic beverages inside their plane last Friday, September 4, while they’re on their way to the ASAP show in London. “I’ve got nothing to do with it,” says Paulo, who then chose to keep quiet and left early as he says he has another appointment.

At the presscon of “Pasion de Amor”, Jake Cuenca was also asked about this and he said: “My conscience is clear. I’m not involved kasi tulog ako buong flight.”

The story goes that while he’s drunk in the plane’s business class section, Enrique started harassing Jessy Mendiola, whose BF is JM de Guzman. Enrique became so unruly and uncontrollable that Luis Manzano tried to intervene to protect Jessy. But he still won’t keep quiet and starting shouting, so even his ka-love team, Liza Soberano, tried to pacify him. He also wouldn’t listen and even said some cuss words, so Liza slapped him.

Upon their return from London, Jessy started writing cryptic posts on her Instagram account alluding to the incident. Enrique, in defense of himself, also posted posters that are all about God and how God is protecting him, making some fans ask him if he had a problem. An unnamed source then confirmed that the incident really happened. The whisky that Enrique consumed reportedly were passed on to him by Paulo and Jake who asked them from the flight attendants.

The flight’s captain and Star Magic road managers and handlers all came to the business class section to calm Enrique, who eventually passed out. When they got to London, they couldn’t wake him up because he’s said to be so drunk. When they finally succeeded in waking him up from his drunken stupor, he was made to drink strong coffee so that the immigration officers won’t notice that he’s intoxicated.

All efforts by various writers to get the side of Star Magic about the alleged incident were fruitless. But we’re sure, sooner or later, they’ll release an official statement and do some damage control since Enrique is one of their current prized properties. We just pray that Enrique will be more careful from now on, as we’re sure he doesn’t want to throw away and waste whatever success his love team with Liza gained during their “Forevermore” days. Does he want to gain notoriety as the new Baron Geisler? If he’s really having a drinking problem, Star Magic should send him to a counselor or a therapist right away to reform him.
