Kim Rodriguez and her neighboring barangay councilor argued over the parking of the actress’ car, according to “24 Oras Weekend.”
In Jonathan Andal’s report, Rodriguez said she removed the vehicle in front of Councilor Ronald Ortiz’s house because she knew it was blocked.
“Nakaharang po yung sasakyan ko nang mga isang dangkal po, naka-usli lang po yung pwetan ng sasakyan ko tapos inalis ko naman po kasi alam kong nakaharang,” she said.
“Nung inalis ko, nakapasok naman po siya ta’s pagka-alis niya, pinark ko po ulit. Sabi po ni kagawad, ‘Alisin mo yung sasakyan mo, alisin mo,’” she added.
According to Kim Rodriguez, he asked Ortiz if she could park there because her car had already passed and it was difficult to park with them.
“‘Nakikiusap po ako na baka pwedeng doon muna ako mag-park kasi alam naman po niya na mahirap po yung parking sa lugar namin lalo na po sa street namin,” she said.
Rodriguez added that she was scared of the men who allegedly surrounded their house.

“Tumawag po siya ng mga grupo ng kalalakihan tapos po nag-iikot po sa harapan namin, naglalakad-lakad po, parang tinitingnan yung bahay namin,” she said.
“Natatakot ako [kasi] dalawa lang kami roon,” she added. “Hindi ko alam yung gagawin ko kasi takot na takot talaga ako. Hindi ako makatulog kagabi.”
Ortiz said he did not call the police. That’s why someone came to monitor the situation. He also denied that the men were watching outside the actress’ house.
“Wala pong umaaligid. ‘Yon po siguro yung [nakita] niyang supporter ko po, mga kasama ko po. Hindi po ‘yon mga umaaligid talaga,” said Ortiz.
Kim Rodriguez is said to have been “offended” because she was told not to be emotional and include in her acting in the situation.
According to the Chairwoman of Barangay Concepcion Dos of Marikina, Mary Jane Zubiri-Dela Rosa, Ortiz, and Kim Rodriguez have argued before.
The two parties have already reached an “amicable settlement” that Rodriguez will no longer park blocking the road.
