Prank on Anne Curtis? Not me, says Jake Cuenca
MANILA, Philippines – Actor Jake Cuenca took to Twitter, Tuesday, December 3, to deny any involvement in a prank which reportedly triggered actress Anne Curtis' outburst in an upscale club last November 23.
On December 1, entertainment site PEP.ph released a report saying Curtis slapped actor John Lloyd Cruz, magazine publisher JR Isaac, and their friend Leah de Guzman during a party hosted by the actress at Prive Luxury Club at The Fort in Taguig.
A report by entertainment site Fashion Pulis implicated John Lloyd Cruz and Jake Cuenca in the incident.
According to the report, Curtis reserved tables at the club's VIP section, complete with a private bar and toilets. Cruz, Cuenca and company coincidentally had a separate gathering in the venue.
Curtis reportedly got "irritated" when people who weren't part of their gathering started taking drinks from their private affair.
Cruz and Cuenca then reportedly followed the actress when she went to the restroom, and as a prank, started banging on her toilet door. After stepping out of the restroom, Curtis slapped JR Isaac and Leah de Guzman, who were near the toilet at the time.
Cruz was said to have told the actress it was he and Cuenca who did the prank, which angered her and caused her to also slap Cruz.
Jake Cuenca defended himself on Twitter, saying he is too old to be pulling pranks. He urged the public to "get their facts straight."
"A lot of hate for something i wasnt involved in and something i didnt even witness... I'm speechless its amazing how people judge so quickly," he tweeted.
In reply to several tweets asking for his side, Cuenca admitted to being at the club on the same night, but he said he didn't see anything and that he was "busy minding [his] own buisness. Like things should be."
"No I absolutley did not bang any doors and I didn't have any problems that night with Anne or JLC," he said.
