MANILA - Nearly a year after their controversial brawl, actor John Prats said that he has fully forgiven comedian Jason Francisco.
Francisco punched Prats three times in the cheek and chin during rehearsals for the late-night gag show "Banana Split" at the Music Museum in San Juan City in March of last year.
"Matagal ko nang napatawad, 2013 pa lang nagpatawad na ako. Kumbaga, wala na sa akin yon, OK na sa akin 'yon. Diyos na ang bahala sa kanya," Prats told ABS-CBNNews.com in a recent interview.
Prats also expressed his happiness over Francisco and Cantiveros' wedding last December.
"Oo naman, masaya ako sa mga ganoong pangyayari. Wala akong hang-ups sa ganoon. Kumbaga magandang blessing 'yon for the both of them. Sana magtuloy-tuloy yung kaligayahan na mayroon sa kanila," he said.
In a text message sent to ABS-CBNNews.com, Francisco said he is happy that Prats has forgiven him.
"OK naman po, mabuti po kung ganoon. Ang kaso hindi pa kami nagkikita ng personal," said the comedian, who stressed that he is ready to personally apologize to Prats when the time comes.
"Matagal na naman akong handa.... wish ko lang sa amin ni Kuya John sana ma-accept namin sa isa't isa 'yung pagkakamali namin," he added.
