Matteo reportedly left the hotel with a bleeding mouth courtesy of Coco's fist. Witnesses said, though, that it was Matteo who started the fight. The My Binondo Girl star allegedly choked Coco, which caused the latter to defend himself by punching Matteo.
Further reports said that the fight started when Matteo grabbed Coco by the back of his coat/shirt.
The name of Maja Salvador was immediately dragged into the issue. The pretty Thelma star and Matteo Guidicelli have been constantly linked to each other for sometime. Coco Martin, on the other hand, was Maja's leading man in the recently-concluded ABS-CBN drama, Minsan Lang Kita Iibigin. Talks about Matteo being jealous of Coco had circulated numerous times especially that Coco was vocal in expressing his admiration for Maja.
Meanwhile, on The Buzz, Maja talked to Boy Abunda about the incident and admitted she was the cause of it all. She also admitted for the first time that she and Matteo are in a relationship but confessed she doesn't know where their relationship would go after the incident at the Manila Pen.
On the question regarding what triggered the fight between the two actors, Maja refused to go into details, but said it's not true that Coco Martin kissed her on the lips during the after party at the hotel's Salon de Ning bar.
The Star Magic management already released a statement saying that Matteo Guidicelli and Coco Martin have already patched things up. “What happened was just a simple misunderstanding," the statement says. "Both Coco and Matteo are sorry it happened. Everything has been resolved.”
