Richard Gutierrez Reportedly Hits Brother Ritchie Paul During Ruffa’s Birthday PartyAccording to reports, there was an altercation during the recent birthday party of Ruffa Gutierrez. Richard Gutierrez, Ruffa’s younger brother, reportedly hit youngest brother Ritchie Paul. The slight commotion was even caught on camera and was shown in TV Patrol’s Star Patrol segment last June 21.
Some guests who were present at the occasion recalled that everyone seemed to be having fun when a group of people suddenly rushed to one side of the venue. The reason: two men were seen having a small fight with each other. Trash talks were also reportedly heard. Later on, Ruffa was seen looking stressed out and clueless about what was going on.
According to reports, the brothers continued arguing until their dad Eddie Gutierrez came between them. Eddie calmly told his sons to stop fighting and just let the party move on peacefully. He was reportedly mad but was able to remain calm and civil so as not to aggravate the situation.
The Gutierrez family has remained silent about the incident. That night, Ruffa only told some press people in jest that she gets stressed because there is always a commotion whenever she celebrates her birthday. Anabelle Rama, the feisty mom and manager of the Gutierrez siblings in showbiz, also refuses to talk about what happened that night.
However, the incident is becoming the talk of many showbiz observers and insiders. According to some people privy about the affairs of the Gutierrez family, it is to be expected that the family would keep mum and just let the issue to be tackled within the family.
Besides, Richard is now busy promoting his latest movie ‘My Lady Boss.’ The film, which pairs him with Marian Rivera, would hit the theaters on July 3. It was supposed to be shown last April but the play date was moved for an unknown reason.
This is not the first time that Richard was involved in altercation. Many years ago, when he was just starting to become popular, he was accused of hitting another guy during his own birthday party. Several years later, he reportedly slapped Aljur Abrenica because he (Richard) got jealous that the latter was with his then girlfriend Jewel Mische in a GMA-7 event.
Meanwhile, Richard is all set to study film directing not in Switzerland but in Mactan, Cebu, where Bigfoot Film School is located. Ritchie Paul also studied in that school. According to reports, it was him (Ritchie Paul) who was instrumental in convincing Richard to also take film directing in the same institution.
Bigfoot Film School is considered by many as among the most popular film schools in the world. Many foreign students are said to be coming over to Cebu to enroll in the school. According to an insider, Richard is excited to study there more because the site is just about 10 minutes of driving away from the beach house owned by the girlfriend of brother Elvis, Alexa Uchico. Richard loves beaches.
