At the height of controversies surrounding her son Tony Labrusca, Angel Jones took a swipe to all the naysayers criticizing Tony for allegedly having a boyfriend.
In her Twitter account (@missangeljones), Angel tweeted to air her side over the recent controversies Tony is facing. Confident that the truth will still come out in favor of his son, she tweeted:
“I’m laughing at all the misinformed people spreading hate and fake stories as if they were there.
Thank you for all the PR! Underdog stories always end the best”
Consequently, one netizens replied informing her about the photo making social media rounds. In the said photo, Tony was seen with his rumored boyfriend. Angel was quick to refute the rumors linking her son to another guy. She insisted that some people just like to pull his son down.
“May pinakalat pa silang mga pictures Tita. Tsaka may nagpost dn ng pics ug boyfriend daw kuno ni @tonythesharky Nakakaloka sila,” a netizen asked.
“That’s what happens when you’re at the top. They like to desperately tear you down. Sad but true,” said Angel.
Rumors about the “Glorious” actor having an affair with another man burst when he arrived in the Philippines from Canada with fellow actor Alex Diaz. Earlier, Alex took defense his friend over the issue with immigration officers as he saw the whole thing go down. One the other hand, Tony cleared the issues between them by saying:
“Just because we’re in the same flight we’re together na? That’s so low. Why can’t people see the truth that we’re just friends and his tita even made sure we got the same flight para may kasama kami pauwi.”
Tony was recently in hot waters after he shouted at the immigration officers at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) for giving him only 30 days to stay in the country. The 23-year-old actor, whose parents are both Filipinos, holds an American passport.
