BB Gandanghari took to Instagram to say goodbye to her old self, the actor known as Rustom Padilla. BB is officially legalized in the US as a woman with the name Binibini Gandanghari.
“GOODBYE RUSTOM, my former self and my soul mate. You may rest now. And HELLO BB. Welcome to the world! May my GOD bless this soul,” she wrote in her caption.
On November 16, 2016, the superior court of Orange County has decreed, set in stone if I may say so, that BINIBINI GANDANGHARI, a resident of the United States of America is LEGALLY and OFFICIALLY Female. Praise be to my GOD whose guidance I have sought and still seeking as I go thru my transition. GOODBYE RUSTOM, my former self and my soulmate. You may rest now. And HELLO BB. Welcome to the world! May my GOD bless this soul... life! Cheers!!! ????????#ADAMTOEVE
Rustom was married to actress Carmina Villaroel in 1994 but the couple quietly separated and had their marriage annulled in 2002. He then came out as a homosexual during his stint in the first Pinoy Big Brother Celebrity Edition in 2006.
