Host-singer Billy Crawford thanked his girlfriend, Coleen Garcia, for staying by his side amid the legal battle that he is now facing.

Crawford narrated how Garcia helped him through the challenges he recently went through.

Crawford was involved in a drunken incident in Taguig City a week ago, where he was briefly detained. He was released the following day after posting bail.

The actor said he was able to face the world because of Garcia’s support.

“I really wouldn’t be out now if it wasn’t for her help. When the news came out, it was a wrong accusation right away, nanakit ako ng babae. First of all, I don’t, and I never will. I was raised properly. And pinagtanggol niya ako, she means the world to me,” Crawford said.

Crawford added that he hopes Garcia will be “the one” for him.

“I pray every single day that she is the one. If God gave us unconditional love, that’s what I’m willing to give her as well,” he said.

Crawford and Garcia went public with their relationship in July, months after admitting in January that he is courting his “It’s Showtime” co-host. (MNS)
