“I’m actually looking at you as a 13-year-old and seeing what you’re going to be like five years from now. ‘Yung mga DJ na yan, ‘yung mga… wala, sorry. Their names are going to be erased once you get to that age,” Lea Salonga said to praise Juan Karlos Labajo after his performance of Bruno Mar’s Runaway Baby Saturday night July 26.
However, Lea Salonga immediately stated her apology to Daniel Padilla. “Ohhh dear… I offer my deepest apologies to Daniel P and his fans. In building up JK I neglected to think that I might hurt other people,” Lea said on her twitter.
“I meant no disrespect, but I humbly ask for forgiveness if that’s how it came across. Sana mapatawad po ninyo ako sa aking pagkakamali.”
On Sunday, Daniel Padilla said on The Buzz “Narinig ko lang po ‘yun kanina. Sabi rin po ni Mama, talagang mataas ang respeto natin kay Ms. Lea. Baka nadala lang po si Ms. Lea.”
“Hindi naman po ‘yun issue kaya huwag na natin [pag-usapan]. Okay lang po ‘yun. Baka nadala lang. ‘Yun lang ‘yun.”
