MANILA – Socialite Divine Lee has already moved on from the controversy that rocked her family in the past months, choosing instead to focus on one of her advocacies.

Last March, Lee's father, businessman Delfin Lee, was arrested in connection with the over P7 billion in Pag-IBIG loans that went to "ghost borrowers" for a Globe Asiatique housing project in Mabalacat, Pampanga.

In an interview with ABS-CBN News on Friday, Divine said she, along with her boyfriend Victor Basa and fitness trainer Bok Santos, will soon launch a cellphone app that will share the workout regimens of local celebrities.

“We are coming out with an application sa phone wherein they can work out from their homes. Hindi na nila kailangan pumunta ng gym kasi puno na rin 'yung schedule ni Bok. So 'yung mga nasa abroad, they can actually see 'yung mga workout na ginagawa ng mga favorite artistas nila,” she said.

Among the celebrity clients of Santos are PBA superstar James Yap and movie and TV stars Anne Curtis, Angel Locsin and JC De Vera, among others.

Called the Fit and Fashion app, Lee said they also collaborated with Team Manila in coming out with a new fashion line that anyone could wear for working out.

“So at least kapag pumunta ka sa gym, you still look very stylish,” Basa explained.

Lee said this is her way of helping raise awareness on the importance of exercise.

Lee is also dubbed online as the "Beki Queen" for her affinity with the gay community. She is a known supporter of the LGBT community.

“Parang gusto ko naman ngayon na fitness [ang i-advocate]. Parang I would see na how it affects your whole day when you start working out. The app is free. Wala silang kailangan bayaran,” she said. – from a report by Mario Dumaual, ABS-CBN News
