When news broke online that actor Matt Evans had been arrested in his home last July 31, Friday, family members and his close friends in the industry were some of the first to come to his defense online.
Matt’s wife Katrina Farinas also denounced the case of physical abuse filed against her husband as fake news. In her Instagram post last August 2, she alluded to the fact that the current arrest is connected to an incident in 2012 when Matt made headlines after being accused of physical abuse of his then live-in girlfriend, Johnelline Hickins.
Last August 3, Matt’s former longtime onscreen partner Melissa Ricks also posted a message of support for her former Pedro Penduko co-star. She wrote, “People with good hearts can never be put down. 5 years of being part of MATTMEL. Spending almost every day with you dahil sa work na halos di na tayo natutulog. I know how much of a good person you are, not only to me but to everyone around you. You have a good heart Matt. This is a Fact.”
