Rayver Cruz Gets Pissed Off By Robi Domingo’s Awkward JokeBy now, you surely have seen or heard the much talked about production number of Sarah Geronimo at ABS-CBN’s Sunday afternoon show ASAP 19 last April 6. More than two weeks after that episode, the Pop Princess’ rendition of the popular Disney hit song ‘Let It Go’ (from the animated movie ‘Frozen’) is still a hot hit at video sharing Website YouTube.
But not known to many, there was an interesting and intense incident that happened just right after that production number. It was obvious that Rayver Cruz got pissed off by an awkward joke thrown at him by fellow Kapamilya celebrity Robi Domingo.
After Sarah’s song number, Rayver, Robi, Maja Salvador, and Cristine Reyes were supposed to give their spiels about the recent production number. But to the surprise of many, Robi turned a little too tactless when he teased Rayver about listening and watching intently as Sarah sang.
Robi’s big wide mouth
In his own words, Robi joked about Rayver being ‘tutok na tutok’ on Sarah’s production number. To that, the annoyed Rayver smiled but subtly warned Robi about how he felt uncomfortable about the situation. Rayver obviously was not able to contain his anger and told Robi “Gusto mo tutukan kita sa mukha mamya?”
The surprised Cristine and Maja clearly sensed the tension building up between the two. Luckily, both actresses were able to quickly pick up and ease the air of hostility. Cristine then turned to the audience at her back, asking them if they also listened and watched intently to Sarah’s performance.
According to witnesses, during the commercial break after that incident, the angry Rayver came to Robi to warn the latter about being tactless. Sources said that Rayver clearly appeared offended by the sudden and unexpected embarrassment caused by the distasteful joke cracked by Robi.
The odd connection
So why would Rayver behave that way? Fans who know the history would easily know. It is now an open secret in show business that Rayver and Sarah used to date, despite the objection of the singer-actress’ feisty stage mother, Mommy Divine.
Their breakup became controversial especially when Cristine came into the picture and created a love triangle among the three of them. The devastated Sarah then turned on to another leading man, Gerald Anderson, who also became her boyfriend.
But as it turned out, Sarah and Gerald’s short-lived romance left a bad mark when Gerald immediately got into a relationship with Maja. Right now, Gerald and Maja are still together, while Rayver and Cristine remain as friends after their breakup. Meanwhile, Sarah is reportedly having a happier love life with rumored boyfriend Matteo Guidicelli.
Now, we may easily assert that putting up Rayver, Cristine, and Maja to render spiels after Sarah’s performance in the variety show was never a coincidence. Whoever thought about that idea could now be happy that it succeeded in gaining public attention.
