MANILA -- Michael Robinstone Rodriguez Morales has reacted to allegations he beat up his brother-in-law, actor Baron Geisler.
In a live video posted on Facebook Saturday afternoon, Morales denied Geisler's allegations.
"In response ito doon sa nangyari kagabi. Lahat ng mga sinasabi ni Baron, he's my brother-in-law, okay. Lahat ng mga sinasabi niya, ay mali," he said.
Morales said the incident started after a drunk Geisler went to their house on Friday afternoon.
"The reason why I burst into anger, hapon pa lang, lasing na siya. He barged into my house, lasing, nagbibihis kami, going to the party, and he was drunk, totally drunk. 'Yung mag-ina, nagbibihis, papasok siya, I mean, wala siyang respeto at all 'pag lasing," he said.
He added Geisler always becomes unruly whenever he is drunk.
According to Morales, Geisler called his daughter on the phone and said some hurtful words. "Siyempre as a father, I didn't like what I heard," he said.
Morales and his daughter then went to where Geisler was staying.
"I went to the house, sa sobrang galit ko, ang dami na niyang sinasabi, 'yun. Nanghahamon na siya eh. So what I did, he asked for it and he got it. That simple," he said.
"Kaya he deserve what he did, and he is trying to twist the story," Morales added.
Morales also showed a graffiti on the wall of their house, accusing Geisler of vandalizing his property.
"Tingin ko kay Baron 'to. Vinandalize niya 'yung wall ko. Sino ba namang hindi magagalit sa kanya," he said.
On Saturday, Geisler posted a photo of his bruised face on his Instagram account, accusing a family member of beating him up.
"What to do? Break in and bugbug by family. Wow. Still forgive them. Pera pera pag alana si mama," he wrote in the caption.
