Hayden Kho Thankful Kris Lawrence Didn’t Punch HimHayden Kho had some positive comments about Kris Lawrence who is currently involved with Katrina Halili.
Kho, who was previously embroiled in a scathing scandal with Halili, said that he is thankful Lawrence was a gentleman and did not go through with his thoughts of punching the disgraced doctor during a recent chance encounter in a show.
“Kris was gentleman enough to forego muna whatever he feels – I’m sure it wasn’t really something positive towards me – and give the crowd a good show,” Kho said.
Lawrence, who has a child named Katrence with Halili, performed recently in a show at the Mall of Asia Arena. He did not know that Kho was one of the judges of the show.
Lawrence recalled in a previous report from GMA that he shook the hand GMA executive Darling de Jesus to thank her as it was she who invited him to the event.
“Then, pagbaba ko sa stage, e, bastos naman na hindi ko isi-shake ang mga ibang judges,” the singer said.
“Kaya nang makita ko [si Hayden], na siya yung man right beside Darling, hindi ko alam ang gagawin ko. Sabi ko sa sarili k, ‘Sh*t…’ parang nagblangko ang isip ko. ‘Am I going to shake the hand of this man?’” he added.
According to Lawrence, he felt angry and his first thought was to punch Kho.
“Naramdaman ko yung galit, gusto ko siyang sapakin,” he said.
Nonetheless, he did not push through with his thoughts.
“Pero siyempre, I was there as a professional person, so I shook his hands,” Lawrence said.
He said that if he met Kho earlier, he might have started a fight. However, he said his life is “so great” at the moment that he does not want to ruin it.
"[Katrence] is such a reward for all the hardships and all. Huwag na nating sirain pa,” Lawrence said.
“Let’s all just be positive. If I’m positive, then I know all the positivities (sic) will come back to me. Let bygones be bygones,” he added.
Kho and Halili, along with other women including popular personalities like actress Maricar Reyes, were involved in a bruising scandal in 2009 when lewd videos depicting Kho participating in sexual acts with the women leaked and spread virally over the Internet.
After the scandal, which included a highly-publicized court battle with Kho, Halili disappeared from the limelight. She had her child with Lawrence in September last year.
As a result of the scandal, Kho lost his license as a medical doctor. Kho was previously one of the top cosmetic surgeons in the country.
