Kapamilya actor Alex Diaz has finally spoken up and aired his side over the speculations about him having romantic relationship with his good friend and fellow actor Tony Labrusca.
According to him, many were apparently of
fended after the in cident involving Tony. The i ncident, as per ABS-CBN News, happened when an immigration officer informed Tony that he was only given a 30-day-stay in the country; in a later statement, he asked for an apology but denied calling anyone in the airport as stu pid or br agged about him being a celebrity.
Diaz said somebody who was offended might’ve created the anonymous social media account having no profile picture who posted ma
licious stories that Tony was at the airplane inc ident with his “romantic partner”; and many believed the story.
He said he has been doing obstacle course training with Tony for a year prior to the inci
dent, they were in the same race — that is why they got close. He lives in Calgary, Alberta while his friend lives in Vancouver; both decided to go to the Philippines to have bungee jumping. They were together at the flight.
The actor said he had to speak out because he feels pity for Tony and his career was greatly affected by the issue. He was quoted by Push saying, “I’m never going to be silent when one of my friends is being per
secuted. Even if it means I will be per secuted as well. So you have to defend your friends.”
October last year when Diaz admitted his bi
sexuality after his exchange of messages with a fitness coach leaked; him appearing to be the one offering an in decent proposal to the coach.
“Never again will I be shackled by the f
ear of what might be said about who I am for f ear of losing my career and instead, I will seek help, heal and champion change, acceptance and representation,” he posted on Instagram.
