A man who claimed to be the half-brother of former actress Antoinette Taus asked a vlogger for help to reach his relatives.
In the video uploaded by Safari SV Vlogs, Anthony Flores addressed his alleged father Tomas Taus Jr. who’s currently living abroad, saying that he really wanted to meet him.
“Ako si Anthony Flores. Nakatira sa Northen Samar. Ang trabaho ko ngayon dito ay isang pedicab driver. Nananawagan ako sa tatay kong Amerikano na si Tomas Taus, Sr. Saan ka man ngayon Papa, sobrang miss na miss kita dahil mula pagkabata ko ay hindi na kita nakita. Sana ay magkita na tayong dalawa.” Anthony said.
He also asked the former actress to help him because his life as a pedicab driver couldn’t sustain his needs every day.
Anthony shared that he was only earning 150-200 pesos per day and their house was also prone to flood.
“Magkapatid din kami sa ama ni Antoinette Taus. Sana matulungan ninyo ako. Mahirap ang buhay ko ngayon sa probinsiya,” he said.
According to Tessie Flores, Anthony’s mom, they tried to meet Taus Jr. personally but they failed to reach him.
She even presented some evidence including a portrait of Taus Jr. to prove that they became partners in the past.
They’re also ready to perform a DNA test to prove that he was a member of the Taus family.
As of writing, Antoinette who’s now busy with humanitarian works after her career as an actress has yet to give a comment on Anthony’s appeal.
