Lea Salonga stirred netizens with her feisty tweets about a nameless persona just hours after the finale of reality singing show The Voice Teens last July 30.
She started her string of tweets by describing the person who’s exuding “false humility.”
There is a big difference between real humility and false modesty. It takes just a little discernment to figure out which is which.— Lea Salonga (@MsLeaSalonga) July 31, 2017
A netizen then went on to ask her if she was pertaining to her co-mentor Sarah Geronimo. But Lea was quick to clear the Pop Star Royalty as the subject of her tweets.
Not her. Never her. She really is down to earth and very sweet. I don't time my posts with stuff close by . I comment on things far away.— Lea Salonga (@MsLeaSalonga) August 1, 2017
After which, another netizen presumed that the person she was pertaining to had a letter “S” in his/her name.
It was at this point when certain individuals insinuated that she was supposedly referring to Megastar Sharon Cuneta. But Lea just played it coy, with her even saying that she too, has a letter “S” on her name.
false modesty is someone with a letter s in the name. puno ng inggit sa katawan at kunyari ay masaya sa magandang kapalaran ng kapwa.— orchard dela cruz (@DelaOrchard) July 31, 2017
What further bolstered speculations that she was talking about her fellow coach was Lea’s “timing,” as far as posting her tweets were concerned.
Grand Finals is done, so other things are now entering my head. Wala lang, something that lingered after a convo with friends a few days ago— Lea Salonga (@MsLeaSalonga) July 31, 2017
But after intense speculations about whom she was alluding to, Lea eventually cleared Sharon on the issue on August 3.
Sharon and Lea have been co-coaches starting the third season of The Voice Kids last year. Sharon replaced Sarah in the said The Voice Kids season.
