LIZA SOBERANO admits she held a grudge against the radio DJ who reported that she got pregnant last year and tried to hide it by staying in the U.S.
The kapamilya actress stayed in the US for almost eight months, due to her right index finger surgery.
Liza broke her finger during the taping of her 2018 action-fantasy primetime series “Bagani”.
At that time actor Enrique Gil (Liza’s real life boyfriend) was in the states.
Liza mentioned that she expected speculations because of her long absence in the local scene.
“I wasn’t bothered by other people’s speculations. I expected it, ‘Oh, they’re gonna think [I’m pregnant] because I’m gone for so long,’” Liza also mentioned that she had grudges over the radio jockey with his news of her being impregnated because people believed him.
“I was more upset with the person who came up with it, like, a whole video and everything.
“They didn’t even bother to ask my manager, who was here the whole time or even ask me first.
“Parang, they were putting out a blind item that they made it so obvious that they were talking about me.
“I was actually in surgery when the video came out.”
Some people advised Liza to sue the radio DJ, however the actress opted not to pursue the case.
“My fans wanted me to sue him or something… I was, like, I am not ruining someone’s life just because they decided to make a silly rumor about me.
“I think it’s bad enough already that he got a taste of his own medicine and everyone got mad at him.”
The actress confessed that if she got pregnant she won’t hide it.
“I don’t think everyone who gets pregnant wants to hide it, but it really didn’t happen and there was so much proof [that it wasn’t true].
“And also, I want to change the perception just because I went out of the country, parang buntis agad.”
“Actually, people who know me know [that] I’m a very bad liar.
“When I lie, I stutter so much and I end up nabubuking ko yung sarili ko.”
Liza was suppoose to do “Darna”, but with what happened to her finger, she rejected the role.
