Previously, the bride’s close-in security detail surprised everyone when he appeared in one of Raffy Tulfo’s radio program “Wanted sa Radyo” after he initially said that he wouldn’t file a formal charge against Guidicelli.
The actor was accused of supposedly punching Geronimo’s bodyguard on the throat the night of the wedding, an allegation that the former has insistently denied.
The date of the controversial wedding of the couple was first reported in a national daily. This buzz was initially questioned by colleagues of Geronimo as they shared videos of her during a taping session in the morning.
It was later on revealed that the marriage actually took place in the evening despite Mommy Divine‘s reported disapproval of the union.
