Veteran actor PJ Abellana said he didn’t believe the rumors that his son-in-law, Tom Rodriguez, was hiding his true identity.
In an interview, PJ addressed the rumors about the possibility that Tom was ‘gay’ and his wife Carla Abellana only discovered it when they were married already.
According to the veteran actor, there was no way for Carla not to discover it before exchanging vows with Tom since the two had a relationship for more than seven years.
“Kung may posibilidad ang isyu na ‘yan, e, sa tingin ng lahat hindi mapapansin ‘yan ng anak ko more than 7 years na relasyon nila. Sa tingin ninyo hindi ba masisilip o malalaman o madidiskubre ng anak ko ‘yan?” said PJ.
“Hindi ako naniniwala umabot sila sa kasalan kung may gender isyu, hindi ‘yan aabot sa kasalan,” he added.
Carla refused to disclose the real reason behind her separation from Tom.
However, she made several hints about the cause of their uncoupling, saying that she felt ‘betrayed’ and ‘disrespected.’
Meanwhile, Tom denied that he was having a relationship with another man.
“A lot of the best people… most of the best people I know happen to be of that persuasion. Happen to be gay. Best people I’ve known. So, kung ayun lang inaano, hindi insulto para sa akin yun,” said Tom.
