Everyone remembers actor-singer Sam Milby for his stint at the very first season of Pinoy Big Brother. His name has been through the rumor-mill many times after being allegedly tied to Piolo Pascual. According to Lolit Solis, publicist and former gossip talk show host , she witnessed the two on a sweet date back in 2007.
5. Martin Del Rosario
Actor Martin Del Rosario is not afraid of portraying gay characters in his TV roles, which is why some have assumed that he may in fact be gay. These rumors were based on photos that showed him with model Zuher Bautista. The speculation goes further by suggesting that Zuher was the one who took Martin’s nude photos.
4. Ahron Villena
Comedian-actor-reporter Ogie Diaz once claimed that Star Magic’s Ahron Villena has a gay sugar daddy that gives him everything he needs. Ahron posted a reply to this allegation saying that people should stop being jealous of his blessings and mind their own business. Still, he didn’t confirm nor deny this allegation.
3. Enchong Dee
Model, actor and swimmer Enchong Dee’s sexuality has always been a topic of discussion. There are rumors that suggest Enchong acted effeminately during his college years. The rumors were dispelled once it was confirmed that he was dating Julia Montes, followed by Samantha Lewis. However, a viral photo of the swimmer looking lovingly at Piolo Pascual has revived the rumors once more.
2. Piolo Pascual
Possibly the most controversial person on this list, actor-model-musician Piolo Pascual has been linked to numerous male celebrities. Some of them appeared on this list. He has denied these gay rumors although they persist as an open secret in the showbiz industry.
1. Alden Richards
Yaya Dub star Maine Mendoza’s onscreen partner is Alden Richards. He tops this list for the amount of photos circulating online. One viral photo has Alden being really close to fellow Kapuso actor Derrick Monasterio. Other photos of Alden with non-showbiz guys feature them in intimate positions.
Maybe too close.
