MANILA (Mabuhay) — An exasperated Angel Locsin on Thursday reiterated that she did not cheat on former boyfriend, Philippine Azkals star Phil Younghusband, when she decided to reconcile with Luis Manzano.
Bashers of the actress have been accusing the actress of being a cheater when she admitted last January that she is still in love with Manzano, her former boyfriend.
This despite clarifications made by Locsin early on that Manzano was not the reason she broke up with Younghusband.
In fact, when asked about her critics’ persistent accusation during the press conference of of her hit series “The Legal Wife” on Thursday, Locsin revealed that it was she who has been cheated on before, although she did not identify who did what.
“Utang na loob, ‘di ako nag-cheat. Maraming beses akong naloko, maraming nang-agaw, nanglandi pero wala kayong naririnig sa akin,” she said.
“So kapag nagsalita ako, ingat ingat na lang din kasi hindi naman ako nagsasalita, hindi ba? So huwag na lang nila akong ituturo,” she warned.
In the hit primetime series, Locsin plays the character of Monica, the betrayed wife of Adrian (Jericho Rosales).
“The Legal Wife” dominated trends on Twitter locally and worldwide on Wednesday, as its titular character broke down in tears over the realization that her husband is cheating on her with her best friend.
“Actually hindi ako nang-aaway masyado. Hindi ako nagba-blog kasi wala naman akong dapat itago,” Locsin said.
“Kahit ano sabihin niyo sa akin eh, kilala ko ang sarili ko. Hello, ako pa ba ang matatakot sa katotohanan? Kaya lang minsan kapag sobrang below the belt na, like nadadamay na si Miko (Sotto, her former boyfriend), ang pamilya ko at saka ‘yung paulit-ulit na pinipilit na ibaligtad ang sitwasyon. Doon na ako magsasalita. Pero sasabihin ko lang kung ano ang side ko kasi naniniwala ako na hindi mo dapat sirain ang buhay ng isang tao para ikaw ang umangat. Okay lang ako ang maging negative pero hindi ako sisira ng buhay ng tao,” she said. (MNS)
