MANILA – Celebrity couple Luis Manzano and Jessy Mendiola read comments from their haters to mark actor-host's 40th birthday.
Among the comments are persistent rumors that Manzano is gay and that Mendiola stole him from his former girlfriend.
Before Mendiola, Manzano was in a relationship with actress Angel Locsin.
To a netizen who called her "mang-aagaw" and "gold digger," Mendiola replied: "I've been setting this record straight over and over again as in, like I've been telling everyone about this. I will clear it again now but I will not speak about this again ever. Wala akong inaagaw. Mas nakakatulog ako sa gabi na alam ko 'yung totoo. And 'yung hashtag na gold digger mo, I would like to think na magaling din ako sa sarili kong pera. That's the reason I still work in my own little way nnakakapag-ipon ako. So hindi rin ako talaga umaasa kay Luis when it comes to money."
Manzano, meanwhile, reacted to a netizen who commented that he likes men but got married to a woman. "Luma na 'yan, 'yung gay issue. Dati ko pa naririnig 'yan 'yung gay issue," Manzano said.
Mendiola and Manzano took the internet by storm when they revealed last April 4 that they are already married.
Manzano and Mendiola exchanged “I do’s” at The Farm at San Benito in Batangas last February 21, 2021 in a civil wedding rites officiated by Lipa City Mayor Eric Africa.
The two, who have been together for more than four years, announced their engagement last December.
