In fact, the director has not been following the actor ever since. Direk Cathy revealed this on Instagram on Wednesday, November 22, 2023.

Direk Cathy writes, “Mga bakla huwag niyo na po ako idamay dito. Wala talaga kayong makikitang supremo dj sa followed ko kasi hindi ko naman siya fina-follow noon pa. Di ko alam totoong account niya kasi.

Even “Can’t Buy Me Love” actress Chie Filomeno was not spared, as she slammed a netizen for sparking a rumor about her and Daniel. 

The netizen writes, “Isa ka pa Chie, akala mo walang nakakita sa inyo ni Daniel sa Cebu? Hahahaha. Gusto niyo ba ng spiel?” 

Chie then quickly replied with, “I know who you are, nakasama ka namin sa Cebu diba sa loob ng kotse na pinalabas ka ng marshall kasi hindi ka naman kasali sa prod team. Pasalamat ka mabait si Kath, you’ll spread fake news pa? Tapang mo naman.” 

Following that, Chie pressed further, “Oh bakit ka naman nagprivate?” after the involved netizen went private on X.
