He explained in his interview that they two argued over a silly matter related to roosters, which they have been using for cockfights.

    Although no one believed him as the sources said that the doctors of Menonita Hospital in Cayey confirmed about Luis Morera to be physically harassed due to which he was given treatment for multiple physical traumas. He further said that “A lot of people thought that I hit him because he was in the hospital, but afterward my mom explained that it was because he was having chest pains. My dad suffers from stress, he takes pills. He’s an intelligent person, very honest and of strong character, but I want you to understand that there was no assault”.

    A few days later Wisin was found apologizing his father publicly in an interview. He told the reporter, “I’m publicly apologizing to my dad, I love and adore him. Day by day I show my parents that I love them both. For me, they’re the most important things in life. It’s not about who’s to blame, it’s about making sure this doesn’t happen again”.

    Two different statements from Wisin confused his fans and they still wondered about the actual happening. But somewhat it has badly affected his image. His father didn’t legally file any complaint against him but his apology has left a question mark for that incident.
