Anne Curtis faces crisis with slapping incident in club

She might be facing her worst crisis in her otherwise immensely successful showbiz career.

A terrible public relations disaster that could potentially affect her phenomenal career, if not possibly end it.

But, Anne Curtis seemed unfazed in responding to a report on the Philippine Entertainment Portal that shocked everyone who knew her, even this blogger. Yet you could feel the remorse in her apology. And, in my view, it was brave of Anne to address the issue on Twitter, to her nearly six million followers, instead of keeping quiet and making matters worse by letting people speculate.

Anne goes ballistic

That incident at Privé Luxury Club in the early morning of Saturday, November 23 is now the talk of the town, understandably because the people involved in the incident are A-list artistas and prominent personalities.

While slapping is a common device used in movies, used to humiliate characters in dramatic fashion, delivering a whack to the face in a public place is definitely uncommon, especially in an exclusive bar such as Privé in The Fort Strip in Bonifacio Global City.

But it happened. Anne admitted in her series of tweets that "most of it is true," referring to the PEP report that alleged she slapped John Lloyd Cruz, magazine publisher JR Isaac, and the latter’s friend Leah de Guzman.

Calls John Lloyd an ‘addict’

She also did not deny hollering at John Lloyd, saying that he was an “addict,” or that she pointed her finger at TV host and model Phoemela Barranda, who was with John Lloyd’s party, while screaming, “I can buy you, your friends, and this club!”

One of Privé’s owners, actor and host JM Rodriguez, was also on the receiving end of Anne’s wrath when he was told he had “the worst club to have a party.”

The details of this incident first came from JR Isaac, who was interviewed by PEP in the report published early Sunday evening.

Escorted out of club

He added they didn’t leave the club despite Anne’s seemingly drunken fit and it was Anne who was escorted out of the club at around past 2 am.

JR, however, stressed that Anne texted him hours after the incident, apologizing for her behavior. He said he accepted her apology.

Immediately after PEP published its report, Anne took to Twitter to release her “official statement” on the incident and noted this will be the only time she will talk about it and won’t entertain interviews about the issue.

Anne's full apology

Here’s what she said on her Twitter account at around 10pm Sunday, December 1:
