Grace Lee wants journalist to apologize for ‘I will marry Aquino’ story
MANILA, Philippines—Korean-born TV host Grace Lee wants journalist Ellen Tordesillas to “formally apologize to the public” for a report that quoted Lee as saying she hoped her relationship with President Benigno Aquino lll would last “the full length.”
In her tweet @gracelee899, Lee described the article “very false n vile.’ The tweet was posted around 10:30 a.m. Monday.
In an earlier tweet @gracelee899 also said the article titled “Grace Lee sees herself marrying PNoy” was a “lie.”
Later in the afternoon, Lee tagged @dziq990 in yet another tweet: “I’m deeply offended that a journalist like Ellen Tordesillas would write an article of lies to sensationalize one’s private life. I have never said anything remotely close to what her write-up says I did.”
Lee also asked Tordesillas to identify the source “who claims to have spoken to me regarding the PSG issue as this is not to be taken lightly.”
Lee would follow this with a lighthearted tweet around 3 p.m.: “Ok enough na…. can’t let this affect me the whole day. natatalo positivity ko! let’s cook! haven’t eaten whole day.”
