MANILA – After being involved in a controversy and making a revelation about his sexuality, actor-singer Alex Diaz has left the Philippines to “reassess.”
While he acknowledged that he is “not off the hook” and that he still “owes everyone an explanation,” Diaz said he needs to “take some time for myself.”
The former MYX VJ also took the opportunity to all those who reached out to him after coming out as a bisexual.
“Everyone that messaged me about coming out to their families, such an amazing thing that you’ve done, and I’m happy that I was able to be a part of that,” he said in a video on his Instagram page. “To everyone who’s been telling me that they haven’t done it yet, please take your time.”
“Just know that from personal experience, it literally is like a blanket of drama and uncertainty was pulled back from my life. Take it at your own time.”
Diaz’s latest post shows that he is currently in Canada with his relatives.
Even if he is out of the country, the actor-singer said he still needs to work because he has “clients and brands that are relying on me.”
He also promised to use his social media platform to release “a string of content that aims to shed light on issues” such as “not being able to be your authentic self.”
“Here’s to being better than before soon – in mind, body, and in spirit. Cheers,” he said.
