Angelika dela Cruz pins political rivalry as motive for harrowing attempt on her life; says everyone knows her father is gay


Actress Angelika dela Cruz is running for the first time for barangay captain of Longos in Malabon City after her father, Longos Barangay Captain Ernesto dela Cruz, was suspended last month for "slight physical injuries and maltreatment."
 
Acting Barangay Capt. Jojo Alvarez, one of the actress' rivals, filed the case after Ernesto reportedly tried to strangle him inside the barangay hall in November 2011.
 
Ernesto said Alvarez tried to poke his butt.

The actress said everyone knows her father is gay.
 
Alvarez, however, denied the incident happened. "Walang katotohanan. Kung nanundot ako, 'di ba sya dapat ang nandito?" he asked.

Meanwhile, the third person running for barangay captain is Angelika's first cousin, Ruel Santos.
 
Angelika said she is still traumatized by the attempt on her life when a man suddenly appeared with a knife with the intention of stabbing her while she was campaigning.
