MANILA, Philippines — Senator Francis “Chiz” Escudero on Friday denied that he was an “alcholic” as claimed by the parents of his own girlfriend, actress Heart Evangelista.
Escudero answered “no” in his Twitter post to a question by a follower if it was true that he drank a lot.
“Your lovelife is yours, problems with your future in-laws is personal. But as a voter, I want to know, do you drink a lot?” asked Twitter user @PelitaPeraltaUy.
Responding to this, Escudero said, “No. And the other allegations as well vs me. That’s why I had to come out.”
“If I didn’t answer, people might think it’s true,” he added.
Also on Twitter Thursday night, the senator maintained that all the allegations hurled at him by his girlfriend’s parents were all just “made up” to break them up.
“Sorry but [I] didn’t do anything wrong. Everything they said was simply made up to pressure me, given that am running, for me to let go,” said Escudero, who is seeking re-election in May, responding to another question.
