Young TV star Diego Loyzaga allegedly mauled two teenagers during a birthday party at The Palace Pool Club in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City at dawn Sunday, police said yesterday.
Loyzaga, 20, is the son of veteran actors Cesar Montano and Teresa Loyzaga.
Police said brothers Wilmer Paulo Lopez, 18 and Wilmer Angelo Lopez, 19, filed a complaint before the Taguig City Police against Loyzaga and his group for attacking them at about 4:30 a.m.
The brothers claimed that there was an altercation and a heated argument ensued between them and the group of Loyzaga before they were beaten up.
Initial investigation disclosed that Loyzaga, who seemed drunk, was starting to be touchy to Wilmer Angelo’s girlfriend, prompting the brothers to approach Loyzaga and asked him to stop what he was doing.
Reports said the two groups were even sent outside the club to settle their misunderstanding but according to the Lopez brothers, they were mauled outside the establishment.
The Lopez brothers sustained bruises and wounds on their faces and on other parts of their bodies.
It was learned that both parties attended the party of Julian Estrada, Loyzaga’s co-Star Magic talent, son of Sen. Jose “Jinggoy” E. Estrada and grandson of Manila Mayor Joseph E. Estrada.
Loyzaga recently starred in a TV series with superstars Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Bernardo aired in ABS-CBN. Police said Loyzaga is now a physical injury case.
