1 Despite rumors saying their relationship is going through a rough patch, Angel Locsin was quick to defend boyfriend Luis Manzano after a social media user accused him of being gay. @guillermaperalta left a comment on the actress’ Instagram account, calling Luis “silahis.” Angel immediately fired back by replying, “Pakituro po sa akin kung sino nagsabi nang masapok ko ho nang todo.” The follower soon apologized and explained that he doesn’t want Luis for Angel. The actress graciously accepted his apology, but not without leaving him a warning: “Sana lang po next time you won’t say things as a matter of fact kung wala ka namang basis. I won’t tolerate anyone lambasting him on my page…whether we’re together or not.” (PEP)
