ACTRESS Dawn Zulueta dismissed persistent rumors that “The Voice” Philippines resident coach Bamboo Mañalac is her brother. In an official statement released on her Twitter account, Zulueta said she cannot keep her silence longer because the news is not dying down.
“This was a persistent rumor that I didn’t pay much attention to before. But now it seems to have spiraled into several ‘official’ announcements on social media.”
“Let me first point out that I have high respect for Mr. Bamboo Manalac and I trust he will understand my sentiments in this matter. Having said that, I exhort him to submit his own account on this gossip-goneviral, as a courtesy. “
The actress decided to clarify the issue as a show of respect to both her parents dragged in the rumor. “This sort of tattle is both disconcerting and mortifying to my parents. I would imagine, for Mr. Manalac also. For my part, in respect to my own father and mother, I have decided to issue my opinion,” she said.
The actress reiterated that her mother and father only has two children together, she and her brother George. Zulueta’s dad then remarried and fathered two sons named Jed and Josiah.
“I implore everyone who has taken part in spreading this wild rumor to please check and re-check your sources. And I hope that after this statement I’ve made, we can put an end to this confounding tall tale,” she ended. (G. Jarloc, Sunnex)
