The lead stars of the upcoming epicserye “Amaya”–Mikael Daez, Sid Lucero and Marian Rivera–are in various showbiz headlines, left and right, lately.
Two weeks ago, Sid Lucero was being accused of physical assault by an employee of a hardware store. The hardware salesman, who was identified as “Jun,” accused Sid of attacking him and a female staff last May 8. Lucero’s lawyers said that the details circulating about the incident “are not accurate,” and that they would rather not issue any comment until proper charges are filed against their celebrity client.
Also last week, Marian Rivera was being intrigued for hitting Manny Pacquio on the head on national television (CLICK HERE TO WATCH THE VIDEO). The “batukan” incident happened during the victory party for Pacman in Party Pilipinas last May 15. Some columnists criticized Rivera’s action as uneducated because her “Show Me Da Manny” co-star is a Philippine pride and a congressman as well.
Lastly, newcomer Mikael Daez was being implicated last month for having a sex scandal video. But today, in time for the “Amaya” press conference, a nude photo scandal of the Kapuso hunk came out. Mike Lim of FashionPulis.com blogged a photo of a naked guy, who has an uncanny resemblance to Mikael Daez, holding a video camera on his left hand and holding his private part on his right hand (CLICK HERE TO SEE THE PHOTO). The entertainment press was supposed to ask Mikael regarding the photo during the grabd presscon of Amaya yesterday but he and co-star Sid Lucero left the event early.
So what do you think? Coincidence or publicity stunt?
“Amaya” is set to premiere this Monday, May 30, on GMA-7.
