Nadine Lustre shoved a fan’s arm away from James Reid?
Being one of the hottest love teams today, it is no wonder that James Reid and Nadine Lustre are being watched by the public eye. This time, one of them got caught red handed doing an indecent gesture to a fan.
As the two were partying the night away at Revel at The Palace in Uptown Bonifacio, Taguig City , Reid was open to giving selfies to fans with Lustre stepping aside. But in this Facebook video uploaded by Cy Aldana yesterday, it seems that the actress shoved a fan’s arm out of the way once she was done taking a photo with her real-life partner.
“Galit niyo kasi si Nadine,” Aldana wrote on her Facebook video. It has garnered popularity, with 26,000 likes and reactions, and 30,885 shares as of this writing.
In the name of fairness, Aldana also shared a moment wherein Lustre was happily giving fellow club-goers selfies.
And it seems there is more to this story. A now-deleted Instagram story by Facebook user Karen Gonzaga showed a closer shot of what transpired. She wrote: “Hahaha! Ang bad, may pagtapik!”
With fans ganging up on her, Gonzaga posted on Sunday, when the issue happened: “Masaya lang po kme lastnight wag nio po kme awayin hahahaha (We were just happy last night, don’t pick on us)!”
But wanting to try to put the issue at rest once and for all, she shared Aldana’s now viral video and explained her side of the story.
“Guys table po nmen yan!! Anong sinasabi niong d cla nagenjoy sa party at walang privacy (Guys, that’s our table! What are you saying that they did not enjoy the party and they had no privacy)?” Gonzaga explained. “Eh table nga nmen yan. Cla ang nagpunta sa table namen (They were the ones who went over to our table).”
Revealing further that they went there more than once, twice or even thrice, she told JaDine fans that she and her friends had no bad intention. She added: “[We were] just having fun that night!! C James at Nadine cool lng cla after that night,meaning wla nmang issue (James and Nadine were cool after that night, meaning there was no issue).”
She also explained how her now-deleted Instagram has been making waves publicly “… ay dhil saniong fans n gusto palakihin ang issue (… it is because of you fans who exaggerate the issue)!”
“Ung mga girls nga khit minumura nio n kme at nilalait lait sa message dna nga sumasagot para lng matapos n yan pero pinalaki nio pa yan at kayo ang nagpublic (Even if you have been badmouthing the girls and belittling them in messages, they don’t answer back just to end the issue, but you made it bigger and you made it public).”
“Im not [a] Jadine fan pero hndi din ako hater nla (I’m not a JaDine fan, but I’m also not a hater),” Gonzaga stood her ground. “Inuulit ko masaya lng tlaga kme that night at walang may interesado kay James Reid (I repeat, we were just happy that night and not one of us was interested in James Reid)!!!!”
Meanwhile on Twitter, netizens have been praising Lustre for her actions, saying that they would do the same if they were in her place.
Twitter netizen @arnsvillanueva joked that Lustre “is me as a territorial girlfriend.”
Another netizen, @bruvbrunz, defended the two as they had the right to be private even if they were major celebrities.
As of this writing, both Lustre and Reid have remained quiet on the issue. /ra
