After Kapamilya actress Angel Locsin called Luis “Lucky” Manzano her “ex” last Friday, Feb. 12, the actor has labelled himself as “single.”
One of Manzano’s followers reacted to his Twitter post and said: “Happy na? Single ka na. Pwede na manligaw ulit.
Gwapo ka e.” The actor, son of Gov. Vilma Santos-Recto and Edu Manzano, did not react.
In an Instagram post on Feb. 12, Locsin said: “On the eve of my neck procedure, I saw my ex singing ‘love yourself’ sa myx ig. Kung nagmahal na kayo ng taong paulit-ulit kang sinaktan. Pls like this.” Her post has the hashtag #mabuhayangtangasapagibig.
Locsin had removed her post on IG and replaced it with a new photo taken at a hospital in Singapore.
“Preparing for my neck procedure. This is my second operation after the lumbar area. Hopefully this will be the last. Kindly include me in your prayers. Thank you,” she said.
On Feb. 11, Locsin defended Manzano, 34, from a basher who questioned his sexuality.
“Hindi bakla si Luis, silahis ang tawag dun, ayaw ko si Luis kay Angel,” the basher said.
“Paki-turo po sa akin kung sino nagsabi ng masapok ko ho ng todo,” said Locsin, 30, one of the resident judges of “Pilipinas Got Talent 5.”
Locsin’s follower has already apologized to her.
“Sorry angel, nababasa ko rin yun, basta ang opinion ko ayaw ko sya sayo kasi napakabait mo, idol na idol kita, pag nasasaktan ka, nayayamot din ako,” her follower said.
Locsin has some 1.7 million followers on IG.
Earlier, an emotional Locsin has denied that she and her boyfriend Manzano have called it quits.
“Hindi pa po,” said Locsin when asked about the rumors of their split, during an interview in “Tonight With Boy Abunda” aired over ABS-CBN recently.
“May pinagdadaanan lang po kami pero inaayos naman po namin,” said Locsin, one of the stars of “Everything About Her.”
“Pasensya na kung hindi na ako nag-elaborate kasi natatakot ako na baka may masabi ako na imbes na mapabuti baka lalo pang mapasama. Ayoko naman manloko at magsinungaling. May inaayos lang po kami.”
Last January 28, Manzano neither confirmed nor denied in a separate interview with ABS-CBN that they have parted ways. But he admitted that they were patching things up.
It would be recalled that both Locsin and Manzano have been discussing wedding plans since 2014.
In fact, Kris Aquino was so happy with the news that she gave them an advance gift – she promised the Kapamilya sweethearts that she will shoulder their honeymoon expenses in Italy.
A shocked Locsin asked back, “Seryoso?”
“Seryoso, oo, pero airfare tapos isang… siguro doon na lang sa Milan. Ang mahal sa Venice – 3,000 euro a night ’yung hotel. Huwag doon! Milan, mag-Milan kana lang. (Sa) Milan masaya (mag-)shopping or Florence. Florence na lang, maganda ’yung shopping (experience doon),” Aquino said, during Locsin’s appearance in “Kris TV.”
“’Yung four nights na hotel ah, ’yun lang (sagot ko); the rest of the nights kayo na. ’Yung airfare mahal na ’yon,” Aquino added.
In 2009, Locsin and Manzano broke up. Five years later, they rekindled their romantic relationship.
