I have never read anything bad about film and TV actress Melissa Mendez, except for the confession of her daughter, Denisse Oca that got pregnant after a casual encounter with model Fabio Ide. That is why the Melissa Mendez Punching Incident is something new to me. Check out the video below.

Melissa Mendez unloaded from the plane. The 50-year-old actress was offloaded from a flight to Mindanao on Friday due to alleged unruly behavior. According to model and Philippine rugby team member Andrew Wolff, Mendez punched his friend after she refused to move seats during the flight. She even hurt some flight attendants while they tried to stop her. Wolff narrated the incident on his Instagram account on Friday:

I’ve seen some crazy things in my life. I regularly travel on planes for work, but this has got to be probably one of the most ridiculous things that I have experienced“. He added:

A certain Filipina actress, past her prime may I add, decided to use our reserved seats on the plane. After being asked to move by flight attendants, the captain and even ground security she agreed to go to her seat (after 30 mins of cursing). Anyway, half way to our destination to talk to our programmer in Mindanao, this ‘actress’ decided to curse continually at my friend. She was given 2 warning cards by flight attendants, but didn’t stop. She punched my friend and the flight attendants and had to be restrained. The captain announced: ‘Ladies and Gentlemen, I apologize, but we have to go back to Manila due to one unruly passenger“.
