Super Tekla denies accusations of live-in partner: ‘Nasa tamang katinuan pa naman ako’
MANILA, Philippines — Romeo Librada, more popularly known as Super Tekla, has denied the accusations of his live-in partner, who claimed she allegedly experienced harassment from him just so they could have sex.
“Hindi totoo ‘yan, ako nasa tamang katinuan pa naman ako (That is not true, me, I am still in a right frame of mind),” Super Tekla tearfully said in an interview with GMA released Thursday.
Super Tekla’s statement came after his live-in partner, Michelle Lhor Bana-ag, appeared over the radio program “Raffy Tulfo In Action,” where she detailed how the comedian would harass her.
Michelle told radio broadcaster Raffy Tulfo that Super Tekla would sometimes refuse to support their family every time she says no to having sex with the comedian, Bandera reported.
Michelle even told Raffy that Super Tekla even forced her to use injectable contraceptives.
“Hindi po niya mapigilan yung sarili niya. Gusto [niya] akong galawin,” Michelle tearfully told Raffy.
(He couldn’t control himself, he wants to touch me.)
“Michelle, utang na loob, may anak akong babae, may mga kapatid akong babae. Mahirap lang kami Michelle, sa bukid lang, alam mo background ng family ko,” Super Tekla said as he denied the accusations.
(Michelle, I beg you, I have a daughter, I have sisters, We are only poor, living in a farm, you know my family background.)
Super Tekla also denied that he was neglectful of his and Michelle’s baby boy, named Angelo, who was born with an anorectal malformation.
According to the comedian, Angelo had a successful operation thanks to the help of his fellow actors in the industry.
“Siya [Michelle] ang hindi pumupunta sa ospital. Ako, kani-kanino ako lumapit ng tulong para maligtas iyang batang iyan dahil hindi mo inalagaan iyan sa sinapupunan mo,” the comedian said.
(She was the one who was not visiting the hospital. I, meanwhile, am asking everyone for help just so as to save the child because you did not care for him while he was in your womb.)
Super Tekla also denied he was using illegal drugs, and said he was willing to subject himself to a drug test to prove it.
“Di pa nag-si-sink in ‘yun sa utak ko na gagawin ‘yun sa akin. Unang-una, wala akong kaalam-alam, plinano nilang lahat,” the comedian then said of Michelle’s interview with Raffy.
(It hasn’t sunk in yet in my brain that they would do such a thing. First of all, I have no clue, they planned it all.)
He then told her: “Michelle, karapatan mo ‘yun, nung una pa lang. Binlock n’yo na ako sa Facebook, wala akong idea nagkalabuan tayo. Gusto mong makipaghiwalay sa akin. Hindi ko pinagsisiksikan yung sarili ko sa inyo Michelle.”
(Michelle that was your right. You blocked me on Facebook, I had no idea that we had a falling out, that you wanted to leave me. I am not pushing myself to be in your life.)
