Jake Zyrus, once known as Charice Pempengco, recently declared his complete identity change. Along with this change, she has also undergone breast removal surgery through female to male (FTM) chest reconstruction surgery or “top surgery”.
In more recent news, he admitted that he is also taking intravenous testosterone booster towards becoming a full-fledged man.
“I underwent a top surgery,” said the international singing sensation during an interview with News 5.
“I’m so happy kasi sobrang—hindi naman sa ano—pero maganda. I know hindi pa ako nagpapa-s*x transplant, pero I feel complete,” he added.
The testosterone booster made his voice deeper and helped him grow a mustache. Jake also shared that he is very happy to know that his change gained positive reactions from his fans.
“Masaya ako, pero nahihiya ako. Hindi pa rin kasi ako makapaniwala. Kasi parang dati—and I’m sure madaming makaka-relate na mga transmen there—siyempre kung hindi ka pa nagkakaroon ng bigote, minsan nagdro-drawing ka pa sa mukha mo, kasi yun yung pangarap mo,” Jake said.
“My god! Parang nagpi-freak out ka kasi siyempre parang all your life… kumbaga, parang nagbibinata ka,” he said.
Despite his changes, Jake proved that he still has the talent that everyone loved. In an interview with News 5, Jake sang his previous hit “Pyramid” which he collaborated with international singer ‘Iyaz’.
