Xander Ford, an internet star in the Philippines, was arrested late Tuesday night in connection with the physical abuse and sexual assault cases filed by her ex-girlfriend.
He was arrested in Pasay City after the Manila Regional Trial Court Branch 38 issued an arrest warrant. He was reportedly violating the RA 9262 or Violence Against Women and their Children.
“Bilang management, pupuntahan po namin siya pero we are not tolerating him kung talagang meron siyang maling ginawa at pagkakamali after ng hearing sa korte then he needs to face the consequence ng ginawa niya,” Star Image General Manager David Cabawatan said in a Facebook live.
In a Philippine Star interview with Xander, he denied the allegations by her former partner but asked for forgiveness.
“Wala naman akong ginawang masama sa kanya, pero hihingi na lang ako ng tawad sa kanya. Magpapakababa na lang po ako. Sana mapatawad mo ako, sana maawa ka sa akin kasi ako lang inaasahan ng pamilya ko. Sana magkaayos tayo. Willing naman ako na kausapin ka,” he said.
