Clint Bondad, ex-boyfriend of Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray, topped Twitter Philippines’ trending topics on Thursday, July 16, following a series of cryptic posts on his Instagram stories on Wednesday night, July 15.
Clint, who sent Catriona’s current boyfriend Sam Milby a message offering him to be his “client” a couple of days ago, had fans wondering the meaning behind the posts which several netizens described as “disturbing.”
Although he hasn’t particularly directed any of his posts to Sam Milby, one of them contains the word “Sam” which seemingly pertains to the Kapamilya actor.
A series of posts, which, when flipped through in succession, reads: “Don’t worry, I am only the ex.”
Meanwhile, in another post, he said “dating app” does not equate to “church” — with several fans convinced with he was implying to the way Sam and Catriona, a Christian couple, met each other.
While fans continue to decipher the meaning behind his posts, one seemingly refers to his ex-girlfriend. He wrote in one post: “P.S. I create Queens. It was followed by another post which reads: “Because I push You Beyond all your Limits.”
Meanwhile, check out the reactions of netizens to his posts below:

A TIMELINE OF SAM AND CATRIONA’s RELATIONSHIP
Sam Milby first made public his relationship with Catriona Gray on his 36th birthday, May 23. But as early as 2018, Sam and Catriona have already hinted at a blooming romance between them.
In December 2018, Sam congratulated Catriona on her win as Miss Universe 2018 through an Instagram post. He thanked her for “raising the flag for Filipinos.”
The following month, January 2019, a photo of Sam and Catriona at a farm in Tanay, Rizal made rounds online. Erickson Raymundo, who manages the couple under his talent agency Cornerstone Entertainment, confirmed that the photo was taken during the beauty queen’s “very brief break” in the country.
In February of 2019, the Filipina-Australian beauty queen confirmed her breakup with Clint Bondad on Tonight With Boy Abunda.
Fast forward to a year after snagging the Miss Universe crown, Catriona — in an interview on Tonight with Boy Abunda — reiterated that she and Sam are just friends.
A day prior to confirming his relationship with Cat, Sam received a surprise video greeting from the latter during a Facebook Live session which got him all giddy.
