In a Twitter post last August, actress Bela Padilla called out a driver from a ride-hailing company who shared her home address via radio system. At first, Bela tried to understand the situation, thinking that the driver simply got overwhelmed seeing a celebrity at the backseat of his car. Yet, later on, Bela realized that it might be unsafe. The anxiety is triggered from Bela’s past experience of receiving scary gifts delivered at her doorstep. So, when the incident with the driver happened, Bela felt uneasy for a few days. She then decided to call the attention of ride-hailing company and the issue was resolved when they sent her an apology letter.
Also a few weeks ago, Tonight with Boy Abunda received a fan question about Bela’s alleged feud with Dani Barretto. Eagle-eyed netizens did not fail to notice that Bela and Dani stopped following each other on Instagram considering that the two are best friends. TWBA tried to get Bela’s response about the controversy but she refused to talk about it that time.
In the November 14 episode, Bela shared that she and Dani have already patched things up. They just had a slight misunderstanding, which she described as “away-magkapatid” but pride has unfortunately got in the way. “Pareho kaming nagmatigas,” Bela admitted. Nonetheless, all is well for the BFFs.
