After figuring in a brawl in Tomas Morato in Quezon City, Terrence Romeo took to Twitter to clear himself from any possible rumors circulating online.
The multiple-time scoring champ said that before people would start speculating on what happened, they must first watch the surveillance footage inside the bar where the incident happened.
He also clarified that he is currently staying at his house, and reasserts that 'there is no need to make a fuss' about the fracas.
"Watch the cctv i believe its somewhere in social media right now.i didnt do anything. Let the video speak for itself.Anyway both camps are okay naman na."
The alleged closed-circuit footage is making rounds on social media, and presents a broader picture of what had transpired.

The brawl allegedly occurred when a fan wanted to take a picture with the spitfire scorer, who also figured in the recent Gilas Pilipinas - Australian Boomers brawl at the Philippine Arena.
According to Clarissa Cabrera, the fan's wife, they approached Romeo for a picture, and were about to go home until the fracas began outside a bar in Tomas Morato.
"Una po, nakapagpa-picture na kami kina Terrence. Pangalawa po, pauwi na kami, nagpapaalam na po kami para magpa-picture ulit. Nagulat na lang po kami may bigla pong sumapak hanggang sa nagkagulo na po," Cabrera said in an interview with DZMM.
According to an article by ABS-CBN News, the two groups were able to talk, and just like what Romeo said, the air might have already been cleared.
