Last July 13, Monday, actress Bela Padilla filed a formal case of unjust vexation against a man who went to her condo building and claimed to be her former classmate and boyfriend. In an exclusive report by MJ Felipe on TV Patrol, the On Beer, Vodka, and Regrets actress shared that the man showed up at her residence and brought along with two other male companions while requesting to see her.
Bela personally went to the Mandaluyong city police station Monday morning to file the complaint against the unnamed man who visited her Thursday evening, July 9. The 29-year-old actress said she has never met the man before. “Merong lalake na parang nagpupumilit umakyat sa unit ko. So ang tagal bago siya napaalis. Dumating na yung barangay, pinakiusapan na siya ng guard tapos ayaw niya pa rin umalis. Parang naka-30 minutes siya sa condo namin,” she said.
Since the security supervisor of Bela’s condo was informed that the actress was not expecting any visitors that day, he requested for the man to provide identification and it was discovered that he had two other male companions in his car. The man was not exhibiting any reckless or drunken behavior but it can be deduced that he was a fan of Bela based from the photo he provided. “Nagsabi siya na kaklase ko daw siya sa Davao. Eh hindi naman ako ever nag-aral sa Davao tapos nag-iba na yung kuwento niya. Sinabi niya sa guard na boyfriend ko daw siya. I’ve never met this guy,” she explained.
Bela also shared that she suspects the man has been stalking for a while now. “Mini-message niya yung hairstylist ko hanggang gabing gabi na. Ang dami niyang sinabi. Alam niya kung saan ako nag-te-taping. Alam niya kung saan ako pumupunta. And pinipilit niya talaga na boyfriend ko siya. So yun lang, nakaka-freak out,” she added.
In the July 13 report of TV Patrol, Bela also shared that this was not the first time she has had a stalker. Two years ago, she revealed she received mysterious packages like a book inserted with dead insects. Bela decided to bring the case to the authorities after fearing for her own safety. A case of unjust vexation was filed against the unwanted visitor. “Don’t come to my house ever again. You’re never invited,” she said.

In her latest Twitter post, Bela shared a message she received from a friend regarding the incident. However, the actress said it is not bad to be good to other people.
“A friend tried to comfort me by saying ‘that’s what’s hard when you’re kind.’ But I refuse to change and be mean because of a person who tried to harm me. It’s not my fault if I am kind, it’s his fault that he did something wrong. Don’t let your heart harden because of anyone,” she stated.
