"I Was Not 'Busy' During The Premiere Night": JANELLA SALVADOR On Not Attending ELMO MAGALONA's Movie 'Walwal'
Karen Jane Ng
Janella Salvador found herself facing backlash for not being present at the premiere night of her loveteam partner Elmo Magalona's movie Walwal last Tuesday. And she isn't just going to stay still.
In her recent Instagram story, the actress defended herself following Elmo's "wrong choice of words" in answering why she was not in attendance during the film's red carpet opening. "I know that he did not want to disappoint our supporters but it was at my expense," she wrote. "I was not 'busy' during the premiere night."
Janella explained she previously informed Elmo that she preferred to watch the movie in private to which the latter agreed. "He probably just doesn't know how to word things properly sometimes under pressure. Lesson learned, I hope."
She ended the post apologizing and wishing the movie its success. Read her full statement here:
