Bea Alonzo’s manager Shirley Kuan answered the issues and explained what the actress did for the movie to continue. The talent manager said that it was Bea who had the initiative to alter her costume after learning that it did not fit her well because she was not told about the fitting schedule.

Shirley also revealed that the designer created the costume for “ex-deal” only and that there was no spare costume which was common in the production.

In a recent interview, based on the article in Inquirer, 1521 producer Francis B. Lara Ho said that he apologized to Bea for what happened.
