Raymund Marasigan speaks up on Marcus Adoro domestic violence issue
Raymund Marasigan has spoken up about the domestic violence and abuse allegations against his former Eraserheads bandmate, guitarist Marcus Adoro, and expressed hope that the issue gets resolved between the parties involved.
Marasigan gave a brief statement about the matter during an exclusive interview with music media outlet Bandwagon, as per a report published yesterday, Sept. 20.
“If you’re my friend, seek me out, we can talk about it privately,” the former Eraserheads drummer said, apparently addressing Adoro. “Publicly on social media, any statement can be misconstrued. Nobody wins.”
“I hope the issue between the parties gets resolved soon. I really want to respect the privacy of those involved, and sincerely hope they all find peace of heart and mind,” he added.
It can be recalled that Adoro’s former partner, actress Barbara Ruaro, and their daughter, singer Syd Hartha, accused the Eraserheads guitarist of domestic violence back in 2019. The said allegations recently resurfaced on social media after the rock band confirmed that they will stage a reunion concert which includes Adoro.
Ruaro and Hartha then expressed gratitude to those who “did not forget,” through their respective Twitter pages on Monday, Sept. 19. While the two of them did not state anything specifically, their posts coincidentally came after the band’s concert announcement.
“Salamat sa mga ‘di nakalimot,” Hartha stated. (Thank you to those who have not forgotten.)
salamat sa mga di nakalimot😊🖤

“Thank you to every single person who chose not to turn a blind eye,” Ruaro said. “Thank you for making sure that we feel your massive support, whether we know each other personally or not. Justice belongs to the Lord.”

Justice belongs to The Lord. @sydhartha
