MANILA – Actor and former MYX VJ Alex Diaz made a revelation about his sexuality on Tuesday, days after he was accused of making an indecent proposal to a fitness coach.

While he did not directly confirm the rumors, Diaz took to Instagram to apologize, admitting he “was wrong in my actions and failed to uphold the values I so strongly try to convey online.”

Saying his actions reflect “the effect of the unhealthy and toxic suppression of all of who I am as a human being,” the actor-singer promised to “seek help, heal, and champion change, acceptance, and representation for the bisexual community and/or anyone who is met with prejudice in our society.”

“It was not my intention to hurt anyone or elude the truth of who I am for all these years, but rather a showbiz decision based on the state of our nation in regards to acceptance and representation of who I am,” Diaz said. 

“But I sincerely thank everyone for not failing to remind me that I am human and that I, too, am loved. Never again will I be shackled by the fear of what might be said about who I am for fear of losing my career,” he added.

According to Diaz, he will release a full statement “when the time is right,” promising his Instagram followers that he will “come back stronger and better than ever.”

“I love you all, I have learned and I am growing. Thank you,” he ended.
