Sarah and Matteo wed in civil ceremony despite Divine 'intervention' —PEP

Pop star Sarah Geronimo and Matteo Guidicelli were married on Thursday, February 20, despite the alleged intervention of the singer's Mommy Divine.

According to PEP.Ph's report on Friday, the celebrity couple had a civil wedding at the Shangri-La Hotel's Ministry of Crab in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig.

The ceremony was marred after Matteo allegedly punched Jerry Tamara, a bodyguard who said he was Sarah's close-in security during the wedding. Cortes went to the police station at 3:27 a.m. on Friday to report the incident.

According to the police report, the incident happened after Mommy Divine arrived unexpectedly to speak with her 31-year old daughter, saying she was not aware about the wedding.

Matteo accused the bodyguard of leaking the details of the wedding.

The couple revealed their engagement last November. On social media, Matteo posted a message to Sarah's parents that he would give her a happy life.

"Tito Delfin and Tita Divine, if there have been hard feelings or events that were not supposed to happen in the past, I humbly apologize. I assure you that I will give Sarah a happy life with the best of my capabilities. With pure, honest love and respect," he said.

Matteo and Sarah have been together since 2014.

No formal charges have been made against the actor. —Kaela Malig/JST, GMA News
