BB Gandanghari files for name change in the US
BB Gandanghari shared on Instagram that she already filed papers to officially change her name from Rustom Cariño Padilla to Binibini Gandanghari in California.
“CHANGE is coming... Big time!!!” she wrote.
In 2006, Rustom made headlines when he admitted on Pinoy Big Brother that he is gay. He was formerly married to actress Carmina Villaroel but their annulment was granted in 2004.
After returning from the US in 2009, Rustom was then known as a transgender woman named BB Gandanghari and revealed she also plans to undergo sex reassignment surgery in the future.
