Jason Francisco punches fellow Kapamilya actor John Prats during rehearsals for their late-night gag show Banana Split.
John and Jason were in brawl just tonight in Greenhills. According to insider, Jason former boyfriend of Melai Cantiveros initially attacked John with 3 punches on his face (cheeks and chin) during rehearsals for Banana Split, Wednesday night at the Music Museum. It was a sudden attack at the back of John. The reason behind it was probably because Jason got annoyed (pikon) with John’s ceaseless jokes towards Melai.
“Hindi ko alam kung bakit niya ako biglang sinapak. Para akong nakakita ng demonyo,” John Prats said on an interview.
Police authorities arrived at the venue shortly after the incident. Prats’ father, his manager and girlfriend Isabel Oli dash to the scene. Prat then went to San Juan police headquarter to file blotter against Francisco. The former alongside Melai are now in a closed-door meeting with the ABS-CBN executives. Insiders say, Jason is in tears and now apologizes to John. “Sana’y mapatawad niya ako pati ang pamilya niya”.
John and Jason are also co-actors in now defunct drama series, Angelito: Ang Bagong Yugto.
