Noven Belleza is the grand champion of “Tawag ng Tanghalan,” which is a singing competition on ABS-CBN’s noontime show, “It’s Showtime.” He is only at the beginning of his singing career in the showbiz industry, but he is now facing a very serious controversy.
A 19-year old girl from Cebu filed a s*xual assault case against the singer, and he is now in the midst of proving his innocence. Karla Estrada, one of the judges of “Tawag ng Tanghalan,” was asked about her reaction on the issue in an interview with PEP, and she said,
“Narinig ko yung tungkol kay Noven, pero hindi ko pa kasi alam ang detalye, e, kung ano talaga yung nangyari. Sana maging okay ang lahat dito sa nangyayari ngayon. So, hintayin natin kung ano talaga yung totoong nangyari, hintayin natin yung side ni Noven, hintayin natin yung side nung kung sino man yung nagrereklamo, di ba? Mahirap tanggapin iyon, ‘no, pero tingnan muna natin, pakinggan natin kung ano yung totoong pangyayari bago tayo mag-ano.”
