MANILA – Singer-host Billy Crawford returned to "It's Showtime" on Monday and vowed to change his ways after a drunken incident led to his detention at a police precinct.
Speaking to the studio audience, Crawford said he learned his lesson the hard way but is nonetheless grateful because he now has a better relationship with God.
“Kailangan mahulog tayo para may matutunan po tayo sa buhay natin. I fell hard. Masakit po 'yung mga sinasabi ng mga tao tungkol sa 'yo na hindi totoo. Pero ang pinakaimportante lang po sa akin na natutunan ko, ang acceptance ng Panginoon sa akin. 'Yun lang,” he said.
Crawford also denied allegations that he and his girlfriend, Coleen Garcia, had a fight prior to the incident. He also insisted he is not on drugs.
“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 kop o magagawa yan sa buong buhay ko,” he said.
“Never po ako iniwanan ni Coleen. She never left my side simula nung nangyari. Thank you so much. I love you,” he added.
“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 kailangan ipaglaban,” he stressed.
