“This is the first time I heard stuff like that,” says Miko Palanca about rumors that Bea Alonzo had a lesbian live-in partner. “I can’t say anything about it because I know it’s not true. I mean it’s definitely not true.”
He adds, “I make her dalaw whenever wala siyang trabaho or wala ako trabaho.”
Three years after their show, It Might Be You, ended, Miko and Bea have still been going out from time to time. Recently, the two have admitted that they are exclusively dating.
Miko says he hasn’t asked Bea about it. The rumor began following Bea after the death of Pinoy Big Brother assistant director Shiela Soncuya, who was Bea’s alleged lesbian girlfriend.
“It’s something that I think is very panget,” explains Miko. “For me, it’s panget for me to ask her because I don’t see any of those things being true.”
Miko admits that reports like this hurt a bit: “Masakit naman obviously because I care about her also. It’s hard for me to hear things like that, you know. I mean, it’s not true, so ‘wag na lang sabihin [ng ibang tao]. ‘Wag na lang banggitin.”
