MANILA – (UPDATE 2) Host-singer Billy Crawford is currently detained at a Taguig City police station after he allegedly went berserk past 4 a.m. Sunday at the Police Station 7 breaking the glass of one of its sliding doors.

In an interview with DZMM, Jonathan Aride, chief inspector of the Taguig Police Station 7, said Crawford arrived at the station supposedly to complain about a personal problem.

“May sinasabi siya pero hindi ko matandaan dahil nasa labas siya. Basta nagwawala siya doon dahil parang nakainom. Inaawat siya ng isang babae namin na pulis. Ayaw magpaawat kaya nauwi sa nabasag niya 'yung salamin sa sliding door,” he said.

Aride said they then asked for help to calm down the TV host.

“Humingi kami ng responde sa isang mobile namin na mga lalaki para posasan siya. Kasi ayaw niya magpaawat eh. Dalawang babae, desk officer namin [ang naka-duty kanina]. Nasa kabilang area kami dahil meron din kaming insidente sa kabila,” he said.

According to Aride, Crawford was with an unidentified woman who left after the “It’s Showtime” host was arrested.

“May babae pero hindi lumapit. Biglang nawala nung naposasan na namin... Isang babae lang ang na-identify na kasama niya. Actually hindi siya nagpakilala kasi nung dumating 'yung mobile namin, bigla siyang nawala,” he said.

“[Walang physical contact], medyo tulak tulak lang dahil hinaharangan nga ng mga tao ko para hindi niya mabasag ang salamin kaya lang malakas siya kaya nagkaroon siya ng pagkakataon na banggain ang salamin namin,” he added.

Crawford may be facing charges of malicious mischief, resisting arrest, direct assault and disobedience of agent of authority.

What really happened

Crawford has since apologized for the incident.

Admitting that it was really his fault, Crawford, in an interview with DZMM, said he already said sorry to the police officers if he had said any derogatory statements.

“It was my fault pero wala akong nasaktan, wala akong tinulak, wala akong tinamaan kundi 'yung salamin,” he said.

“To be honest with you, I don’t see anything wrong with what I did. It was my fault for actually being aggressive. Buti na lang it didn’t happen in a bar, it didn’t happen anywhere else. It happened in a precinct. The reason why is because I knew for a fact I needed to be in a controlled environment. So as I said, I really apologize to the officers if I said anything derogatory or anything else,” he added.

Crawford, who admitted to have been drinking, explained that he went to the police station because he was “stressed out by certain situations.”

“You know when we are under the influence of alcohol, you just don’t really fake it. I don’t come from a background na to hide or to fake anything. It’s an aggression. I’m just really exhausted. I’m stressed out by certain situations. We try to be the best we are. We are not perfect. Ibig sabihin ng ‘Ayaw ko makasakit,’ I’m getting the aggression,” he said.

“And usually for me, when I’m angry, I’m not plastic. If there’s someone that speaks derogatorily to me or anything, reresbak ako. It’s my protection. That’s one of the reasons why I went to the prison and said, ‘Just please arrest me.’ Kasi I do not want to be drunk roaming around or making a fool out of myself which I am right now. That was it,” he added.

Crawford said he immediately calmed down when he was handcuffed. Unfortunately, he broke one of the precinct’s sliding doors.

“When they put the handcuffs on me, I calmed down. When I sat down, I just… ewan ko. Ito ba 'yung pahinga na sinasabi ko na gusto ko,” he said. “I can’t contain myself if I’m under the influence of alcohol. Sasabihin ko nga that was the only thing that was wrong for me. I just really apologized.”

Asked what he learned from this incident, Crawford said: “Maybe lessen the alcohol and act like a grown up. It’s really immature and it’s a shame for me.”

Coleen reacts

Meanwhile, Crawford’s girlfriend, Coleen Garcia, came to his defense, belying an earlier report of GMA News that the “It’s Showtime” host hit a lady police officer.

In her personal Twitter account, Garcia asked GMA News to “stop spreading lies.”

“You and I both know that Billy didn't punch anyone last night. I doubt that he would ever hit a woman,” she said.

“As for the ‘unidentified woman’ he was with? He was with three of my best friends. And yes, two of them are women. No need to put malice in that,” she added.

Garcia then went on to urge her followers to “not believe everything you read.”

Billy balik shooting na!

Ni Salve V. Asis (Pilipino Star Ngayon) | Updated September 11, 2014 - 12:00am


MANILA, Philippines - Back to work na si Billy Crawford pagkatapos makulong dahil sa pagwawala sa sobrang kalasingan noong Sabado ng gabi after ng Star Magic Ball. Nag-overnight night siya sa selda at kinahapunan pa ng Lunes siya nakalabas.

Kahapon ay nakabalik na siya sa shooting ng pelikula nilang Moron 5.2 na may tentative play date na October 8.

May ilan pa silang natitirang shooting days kaya kailangan na nilang tapusin dahil nga may target playdate na ang Viva Films.

Sequel ang Moron 5 Part 2 ng 2012 blockbuster movie Moron 5 and A Crying Lady. Magkakasama pa rin sa pelikula sina Luis Manzano, Marvin Agustin, Matteo Guidicelli, DJ Durano, and John Lapus.

Si Direk Wenn Deramas pa rin ang director nito. Kasama rin sa movie sina Yam Concepcion, Mylene Dizon, Nikki Valdez, Danita Paner, and Joy Viado.

At kung nakabalik na sa shooting si Billy, hindi pa rin naman siya napanood sa It’s Showtime kahapon. Ang girlfriend lang niyang si Coleen Garcia ang napanood  sa noontime show ng ABS-CBN.

Sinabi nitong (Coleen) babalik na rin ang kanyang boyfriend sa programa.

Binanggit din niyang nagpapasalamat ang kanyang BF sa mga taong sumuporta sa kanya (Billy) at ok na raw ito.

Nakabalik na sa Showtime Billy umaming mas gustong saktan ang sarili nang makulong

SHOWBIZ NEWS NOW NA! Ni Boy Abunda (Pilipino Star Ngayon) | Updated September 16, 2014 - 12:00am

Kahapon ay nakabalik na si Billy Crawford sa It’s Showtime pagkatapos ng ilang araw na hindi niya pagtatrabaho sa programa dahil sa kontrobersiyang kanyang kinasangkutan noong isang linggo. Mayroon daw natutunan si Billy dahil sa pagkaka-detain niya sa presinto matapos masangkot sa gulo. “Kailangan mahulog tayo para may matutunan po tayo sa buhay natin. I fell hard, masakit po ‘yung mga sinasabi ng mga tao tungkol sa iyo na hindi totoo. Pero ang pinakaimportante lang po sa akin na natutunan ko, ang acceptance ng Panginoon sa akin. ‘Yun lang,” pahayag ni Billy.

Itinanggi ng binata na hindi totoo ang mga balitang kumakalat na nagkaroon sila ng hindi pagkakaintindihan ng kasintahang si Coleen Garcia at lalong wala raw siya sa impluwensya ng ipinagbabawal na gamot bago nangyari ang insidente. “I’m just a human being who is learning how to love and how to live. I just want to live properly. Hindi po ako nagdo-droga, hindi po ako nananakit ng babae. Mas gusto kong saktan ang sarili ko bago ako manakit ng babae. Hinding-hindi ko po magagawa ‘yan sa buong buhay ko,” paglilinaw ni Billy.

“Never po ako iniwanan ni Coleen. She never left my side simula no’ng nangyari. Thank you so much, I love you,” dagdag ng binata. “Lahat po tayo mahuhulog pero hindi po ako mag-stay sa baba. Babangon ako sa ngalan ng Panginoon. Inaalay ko po lahat, I surrender to him, that’s all. Wala na po akong laban na kailangang ipaglaban,” giit pa niya.

Billy Crawford has obviously moved on after his drunken episode at a Taguig police station a couple of months ago. At the grand presscon of “Moron 5.2 The Transformation,” he said what happened was a learning experience for him. “It was really an eye-opener and I learned a lot,” he says. “It made me stronger and wiser. Inamin ko namang ako ang mismong nagpahamak sa sarili ko kasi I was under the influence of liquor. Inamin ko naman ang pagkakamali ko and it’s better to be man enough to own kung anuman ang pagkakamali mo.”
 
He wants to thank all those who understood him and forgave him. He’s also glad his new movie will help him start all over again. “I’d like to thank ang mga kasama ko rito sa ‘Moron 5,’ led by Direk Wenn Deramas, dahil pinalakas nila ang loob ko after what happened. Sinu-shoot namin noon ang movie and the four other morons Luis Manzano, Marvin Agustin, DJ Durano and Matteo Guidicelli, also our other co-stars Joy Viado, Mylene Dizon, Yam Concepcion, Nikki Valdez and Danita Paner, they were all very supportive. Lahat sila, nag-contribute din to make ‘Moron 5.2 The Transformation’ a real happy viewing experience. This is really much funnier than the first one.”
 
Direk Wenn says Billy is really a changed man. “Ayaw na niya talagang uminom,” says Wenn. “Noong recent birthday ko nga, hindi siya nagpunta para hindi siya matuksong uminom uli.”

#ProudToBeMe: 'Showtime' hosts bare worst fears

ABS-CBNnews.com
Posted at 06/04/2015 9:33 PM


MANILA - To celebrate what has been dubbed as "Proud-To-Be-Me Day," the hosts of "It's Showtime" took turns in sharing how they overcame their worst insecurities to hopefully inspire bullying victims.

Led by comedian Vice Ganda, the hosts came to work without any makeup on and wearing a "Proud To Be Me" shirt.

"It is okay to be not perfect. It is okay kahit hindi ka pasok sa pamantayan ng lipunan na ginawa lamang ng mga tao. Kung tanggap mo ang sarili mo, proud ka sa sarili mo at kahit ilang milyong bully ang makasalubong mo, kung alam mong maganda ka, hindi ka iiyak at hindi ka matatakot," Vice Ganda said.

It came a week after a bullied teenager sought his advice on the noontime program. To comfort the teenager, Vice Ganda wiped his makeup completely and took off his hair extensions.

His move sparked the #ProudToBeMe trend on social media.

The "Proud To Be Me" shirt is currently available here.

Sayang. Billy just missed the personal experience to host the first grand finals of Miss Q&A, dahil halos ilang buwan na syang absent sa Showtime.

Pag si Billy Crawford hindi nakabalik sa Anniversary Month ng Showtime this October, alam na, and I would be disappointed. Baka wala nang ka-teammate si Vhong nyan.

Billy Crawford, kailan nga ba babalik sa 'Showtime'?
©ABS-CBN News (November 15, 2018)

MAYNILA -- Looking forward ngayon ang Kapamilya host na si Billy Crawford para sa kanyang upcoming projects sa ABS-CBN.

Kasunod ng pagpirma ng two-year contract sa ABS-CBN ang mga nakalinyang proyektong sasalihan ni Billy tulad ng "ASAP," "World of Dance," "Pilipinas Got Talent," at ang nalalapit na pagsisimula ng "Idol Philippines."

Kuwento ni Billy, isa siya sa mga excited na makasamang muli si Regine Velasquez na dati niyang nakasama sa ibang network.

"It's just so nice na magkakasama na ulit kami as one big family. Nakakaaliw lang talaga and I'm excited to perform, I'm excited to spend time with ate Reg (Regine Velasquez), kuya Ogs (Ogie Alcasid), and everyone," kuwento ni Billy.

Dahil isa na siya sa mga madalas na mapapanood na Sunday noontime-variety show, time-out muna daw sa daily show si Billy.

"Nami-miss ko rin naman talaga ang 'Showtime,'" tugon niya.

Kung tatanungin naman daw kung kailan siya magbabalik sa daily noontime show, sagot ni Billy: "Not for the moment, hindi muna ako babalik. I'll be definitely concentrating muna sa iba."


"Tapos 'yung album ko rin, I just finished after nine years. So by next year, I will [release] a single," pahayag pa niya.
