The report stated that the money will be used to build a house, an office, a mini-warehouse, and to pay for other expenses.

Tolentino arrived in Thailand on November 6 and they were supposed to have a welcome dinner with Mader Sitang, but the Thai Internet celebrity left them at the airport when she found out that Tolentino does not have the money she asked for.

After the incident, Tolentino immediately went to the Philippine consul in Thailand to file a petition to declare Mader Sitang persona non grata in the Philippines because of how she treated them.

He said that he will be giving everything that Simply Sitang products will earn to charity because of what happened.

Mader Sitang visited the Philippines last month to do a series of shows and charitable works. She became popular on social media for her videos which shows her dancing while throwing her head back and forth repeatedly with shirtless men in the background.
