Maja Salvador denies that she's a playgirl and a 'bilmoko' girl


062411-maja_main.jpgMaja Salvador refused to be alarmed with rumors that she’s romantically involved with a lesbian and a rich non-showbiz boyfriend. The same newspaper report also accused her of being a playgirl and a high-maintenance type of girlfriend (colloquially referred to as “bilmoko” girl). But she all took it in stride and even turned the controversy into a joke in her Twitter account. “Ang pangalan ng writer [na naglabas ng issue] ay Nanet... Jimbentor... hahaha! Baka gusto mag-guest sa jimbento files!!! Wahahaha. Basta masaya ako, hindi ni’yo ako magagapi,” she tweeted.

When ABS-CBN reporters caught up with her at the recently-concluded Star Awards for movies, however, she admitted that her family and friends couldn’t help but feel affected by the controversies about her. “Siyempre naapektuhan din yung feelings ko lalo na nakalagay dun sa dyaryo na bilmoko girl daw ako [at madaming karelasyon]. May Matteo (Guidicelli), may Coco (Martin), may lesbian lover at may non-showbiz boyfriend pa. So kahit anong ingat ko sa image ko, kahit na kayo, kilala ni’yo naman kami, nakikita niyo naman kami kung saan-saanParang hindi lang mabilis agad na matanggap yun kahit hindi naman totoo. Maaapektuhan yung image mo eh, lalo na kapag may endorsements na pumapasok, baka magback out. Kaya ako, tini-tweet ko agad, kini-clear ko agad kasi ayokong madismaya yung mga fans ko.”

The young actress further explained that she had never been involved with a lesbian lover. “Yung tito ko nag-text pa. Bad trip daw siya dahil may lumabas sa dyaryo. Ako sinagot ko lang, kasi yung lesbian na karelasyon ko daw, napakatagal na no’n. Tsaka hello, wala akong naging karelasyon na lesbian. Hindi naman po sa minamasama ko yung mga lesbian o bakla. Nirerespeto ko po sila, pero wala akong naging lesbian na karelasyon.”

As for the persistent rumors about her being called a “bilmoko” girl, Maja stressed that she doesn’t need a wealthy boyfriend for her to be able to indulge in shopping sprees. “Yun nga, gusto ni’yo ipag-shopping ko kayo? Sabihin ni’yo lang sa akin, tatawagan ko kung sino man yun (laughs). Wala talaga, ano ba ‘yan! Kaya ko naman ipag-shopping ang sarili ko kahit papaano. Marami din naman akong paghihirap sa trabaho. So kapag nag-shopping ako, kung nakikita ni’yo ako… Medyo bawas na nga eh, dahil yun sa nagtratrabaho ako. Siyempre minsan hinahayaan ko din naman yung sarili ko na i-enjoy yung pinagtratrabahuhan ko.”
