Rommel Padilla said he is confident his son Daniel Padilla can stand his ground when it is called for.
He said, “Ako’y may tiwala naman kay DJ.
“Kung magkaroon man ng hamunan, lalaki ‘yan, e.
“At saka hindi nagsasabi sa akin ‘yan, e. Alam kong kaya niya itayo ang sarili niya.”
He was referring to an incident in which Daniel supposedly was irked when his fellow Star Magic talent Paul Salas allegedly made fun of him via Twitter.
This was apparently caused by a minor scuffle between Daniel and JC de Vera at the Star Magic All-Star basketball game last August 13.
Paul has since apologized to Daniel for his tweet
Daniel, on the other hand, has forgiven Paul.
