Embattled young actor Baron Geisler defended himself yesterday, April 28, against the accusation that he sexually harassed the daughter of actors William Martinez and Yayo Aguila. He spoke as a guest on DZMM's Showbiz Mismo
According to the complaint filed by Patricia Martinez, 21, at the Women and Children's Desk in Camp Crame, Quezon City, a drunken Baron allegedly invited her to have sex with him during a night out with some friends in a bar in Makati City last Friday, April 25. Baron, as narrated by Patricia, then embraced her and proceeded to touch her breasts.
"Bilangin ko daw ang pera niya. He asked me kung may boyfriend na ako, sabi ko oo. Inulit niya ang tanong, sinagot ko uli, 'tapos sabi niya 'mag-sex tayo.' Niyakap niya ako nang mahigpit, ginamit ko na lang panangga ulo ko, tapos hinawakan niya face ko, tapos breast ko," Patricia told ABS-CBN News.
SIMPLY "ACTING OUT." Baron graced DZMM's Showbiz Mismo earlier today, April 28, to narrate his side of the story.
Baron never denied that he was invited by Patricia to hang out with her friends at a bar in Makati City.
"Bale noong araw na ‘yon, galing akong workshop for a new soap, then later on may nag-text sa akin. Nasa Makati ako that time, hinatid ko ang friend ko. May nag-text sa akin, 'Kuya Ba, where are you?' Sabi ko, ‘Who is this?' Sabi niya, 'This is Pat, anak ni mommy Yayo.' And then sabi niya 'Punta ka dito, wala si Mama ganito,'" narrated the controversial young actor.
Baron said he felt a bit awkward at first because he hardly knew some of Patricia's friends. After downing two bottles of beer, Baron eventually loosened up and was even happy to see some of his friends, like Paolo Paraiso, inside the bar.
"Then noong naka-tatlong beer na ako, wala akong money so nag-withdraw ako ng pera sa ATM 'tapos bumalik ako doon to pay. Tapos nandoon na siya [Patricia] sa likod ko, then niyakap ko siya tapos tinulak niya ako. Sabi ko 'Sorry I have to go na,' parang ganoon tapos niyakap ko ulit. So I think dahil doon, parang yun, nabastos siya. Pero walang katotohanan yung sa paghawak ko sa boobs," he contested Patricia's claim.
As for Patricia's accusation that he casually invited her to have sex with him, Baron claimed that he was simply "acting out" and trying out a new role he's about to portray.
"No, no, that's not true," Baron said. "Ako mahilig ako na kapag may bago akong role like bading, ginagawa ko to my friends and asking for their approval. Ito bagong role ko na manyak. Siguro she took it a wrong way. Di ba, parang kapamilya? So akala ko ay maiintindihan niya na naglalaro ako as a character. E, galing ako sa workshop, so yun lang."
SAYS YAYO IS SECOND MOM. In a separate interview, William Martinez alleged that Baron also disrespected his wife during their stint in ABS-CBN's reality show Pinoy Big Brother Celebrity Edition.
Baron scoffed at the former matinee idol's accusation, saying, "Wala po. Kasi si Yayo parang second mom ko na 'yan, sobra. Ako, naturally, malambing akong tao. Kung nabigyan niya ng malisya o kahit yung anak niya si Pat, kung nabigyan ang aking malisya na nagba-bye-bye po ako, hindi ko na alam kung ano ang gagawin ko. Hindi ko din alam kung saan nanggaling ang anger ni Tito William."
Addressing his accuser's parents, Baron politely called out: "To Sir William and Ma'am Yayo, hindi pa din magbabago ang tingin ko sa inyo. Mataas pa din ang tingin ko sa inyo, kapamilya ko pa din kayo. Pero kung ganoon ang tingin niyo sa akin, yun nga ang kinakatakot ko, yung ganoon ang tingin sa akin. Pero ako, alam ko at may mga kasama akong makakapagpapatunay na wala akong ginawang masama."
