GMA-7’s primetime queen Marian Rivera has released a statement through her manager Popoy Caritativo that was sent to PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal).
“I have spoken with Marian earlier and we have decided that for the sake of peace and out of respect to GMA, she will no longer speak about this incident so that the issue can be put to rest.
“She has already said her piece on this matter before and has already moved on from it.
“Although it’s hard for her to remain silent, she knows that there are times that peace is the better option. So she chooses peace.
“And she hopes that her supporters and fans would respect her decision. Marian sends them her love and gratitude. Thank you.”
