Senator Win Gatchalian dedicated a sweet message to his partner Bianca Manalo, who was facing controversy due to the leaked conversation between her and co-star Rob Gomez.
In an Instagram post, Gatchalian vowed to Manalo that he would always support his partner despite the alleged cheating she committed.
“To @biancamanalo, my 2023 Christmas gift to you – I will always be by your side,” the lawmaker said.
Gatchalian was not convinced that his partner was unfaithful to him and called the rumors as ‘fake news’
It can be recalled that Manalo received criticism from the netizens after Gomez’s social media page uploaded their conversation.
“Kaya mo pumunta that early? 7am? Brought my dogs here sa Makati. Let me know para I can go back to bgc early to see you before I leave at 10am. He’s not here. He’s in Valenzuela,” Manalo allegedly told Gomez.
“You didn’t reply on telegram. Meron ka nanaman na pick up na ibang girl noh,” she added.
The other part of the conversation was visibly deleted.
Meanwhile, Manalo insisted that she only invited Gomez to visit her after being informed that the actor prepared gifts for her.
“Rob Gomez and I are friends and co-workers. He was going to bring Christmas gifts and I wanted to receive them early before I leave for the airport,” said Manalo.
“It is upsetting that our conversations were exposed without my consent, which is a breach of privacy and the cause of so much online bashing. It is obvious that parts of our conversation were deleted to create malicious insinuations,” she added.
