The Philippine Daily Inquirer reported on its Web site Angel Capili Jr. was taken into custody Thursday.

No other details were immediately released.

Charice, a 19-year-old singer who plays a recurring role on the American TV show "Glee," has said in the past she and her father were not close after he and her mother separated when she was 3.

"I loved him and I will still love him. He's still my dad after all," Charice said on Twitter Tuesday.

She also canceled her scheduled concerts with David Foster this week in Singapore.
