How many times does Queen Nadz have to shut down the rumor mills?
As seen in a series of stories posted on her Instagram posted on Monday, singer and actress Nadine Lustre slammed all the rumor-mongers claiming that she climbed a mountain wearing nothing but a bikini. This is referring to a recent hiking trip she took with friends which also included James Reid, just as the new year dawned.
She was crisp in proving this wrong, saying in her stories that she doesn’t have a Twitter account through which the photos circulated and went viral. She also clarified that she took off her denim shorts to let it for a few moments.
After disproving the rumors, she then shifted the focus towards a worthy cause: a donation drive that works towards the reforestation of the Yangil Tribe’s lands in Zambales.
To summarize her frustration, she also posted a story asking: “hindi na ba uso ang fact-checking ngayon?”
Indeed, Nadine has frequently been at the butt end of false rumors, and Instagram seems to be her medium of choice in dismissing these. Fans can also recall that around this time last year, she also took to Instagram to air her aggravation towards entertainment columnist Ricky Lo for claiming she and James had broken up, incorrectly citing mental health issues to back the story up.
She’s right — with the energy it took to spread the rumor, people could have done a quick verification instead. Let’s not disrespect Queen Nadz like this.
