Young actor Diego Loyzaga is now embroiled in controversy for allegedly kicking a Grab car early Friday morning, June 15, 2018.
According to a Facebook post by Kian Garcia, the incident happened around 3 AM outside a condominium building in Malate.
Diego allegedly kicked the car of his fellow Grab driver, John Ronnel Paglalunan, for no reason at all.
The actor also hit the car with a stone, according to the post.
Further reports said that Paglalunan had a passenger when the incident happened.
In one of the videos Garcia posted, it can be seen that Diego seemed to be talking to the driver outside the closed car window.
Those who were with the actor, however, tried to block the actor’s face from the camera.
Paglalunan already reported the incident to the police
Meanwhile, according to Diego’s mother, Teresa Loyzaga, the Grab driver’s accusations were not true.
Through DZMM, Teresa said, “Ang bilis niya masyadong mag-accuse. Huwag niyang gagawan ng istorya ‘yung anak ko. Ang totoong istorya is mali siya, muntik siyang maka-cause ng aksidente at kung nangyari ‘yon maaari niyang napatay ang anak ko…”
She said the car appeared from nowhere and it was a good thing Diego’s driver was alert and was able to avoid it.
The incident, though, wakened the sleeping Diego up.
The actor got off his car and tried to talk to the Grab driver, Teresa said.
The mother also denied that her son hit the TNVS car.
