Wholesome relationships are always a delight to know, especially between two stars in an often noisy world like show business. This is what Moira Dela Torre proved when she admitted that she used to live in Sam Milby’s condominium when she was still starting in showbiz.
This was first revealed by Toni Gonzaga when she sat down with Moira for her vlog's Women's Month special. According to her, Sam used to talk a lot about the singer when she was still a teenager.
"Una kita narinig kay Sam. Kasi si Sam before, she keeps raving about you. 'You should hear this singer Moira. She's so good, Toni."
Moira, who was under the same entertainment agency as Sam’s back then, stayed in the latter’s condo temporarily while looking for her own place.
With the reveal, Moira also shared how much of an important figurehead Sam has been to her. She admitted that there was a point in time when he didn’t want her to be left alone because of her serious bout of depression. There was also an instance when he called for an hour just to give her encouragement. Sam also gifted Moira her first-ever branded guitar.
"A couple of months ago, my kuya @samuelmilby called me while I was at a CoffeeBean and started preaching to me about my worth as a person and as an artist. He read quote after quote, verse after verse, from the Bible and by famous people who made a difference in the world and told me he strongly believed I could be one of them," Moira said in a post she shared back in 2015.
"He went on and on for more than an hour, tirelessly battling every lie and insecurity he knew was plaguing my head."
Until now, they have a close brother and sister relationship. "Up to this day, he's really like my brother. Ako yung wing man nya sa lahat ng mga naging ex niya. Hahaha!"
