Ken Chan and Rita Daniela have broken their silence on the supposed snubbing incident involving Alex Gonzaga. The love team said they had a conversation with the vlogger and that all’s well among them, according to PEP.ph.
Rita said, “Nagkausap na po kami. Okay naman na kami ni Alex. So sana po huwag na po nating gawing issue… Kasi it shouldn’t be a big deal naman po talaga and the important thing is we’re okay.” She declined to reveal exactly what they talked about with Alex. “Respeto ko rin po ‘yon sa kanya, kung anuman po ang napag-usapan namin.”
They confirmed that they did approach Alex at the airport and that they shook hands. Was she cold towards them? Ken said, “Actually, noong time po kasi na ‘yon, ang daming tao kasi e. Hindi namin alam kung nalilito ba siya sa paligid niya, sa mga nangyayari?”
They said the issue might have been a case of misinterpretation. Ken said, “Kahit hindi naman artista, may mga times talaga tayo na down tayo or pagod, wala sa mood. Siguro noong gabi na ‘yon na nakaharap namin si Alex, na-misinterpret siguro kasi ang dami namin doon sa lounge.”
Did the incident change the way they see Alex? Rita said, “Hindi naman, we don’t judge someone naman dahil lang sa isang action ng isang tao.”

The issue blew up after host and showbiz writer Lolit Solis posted about it on Instagram, which Alex commented on and denied. In a new post, Lolit said her source swore that the snubbing did happen. “Kung totoo na hindi nangyari, mas mabuti dahil at least na-clear niya. Pero sabi ng source ko, kaya niya humarap kay Alex. So be it.”
