Alice Dixson received criticisms from netizens after she was seen spending her birthday in Boracay, which is currently closed to tourists for rehabilitation. The management of the resort where Alice was staying came to her defense and released a statement regarding the presence of the actress on the island.
In a statement reported by ABS-CBN News, Crimson Resort and Spa Boracay explained that Alice is in Boracay because she is the "wife of a top executive" of the resort. The statement also said that both of them are "residents of the island with proper documentation." The statement further read, "This has been confirmed and verified during an inquiry done by the Department of Interior and Local Government."
It is the first time that Alice has been referred to as married after her divorced in 2013.
