Sinon Loresca, the gay Filipino celebrity who first became famous for his catwalking video in 2016, was reported to have been physically violent with his personal assistant, by an LGBT couple who he just met.
According to Drew Farhad Fernandez, the complainant, who posted about the incident in his Facebook page, he and his partner just met Loresca in the evening of December 29, when they personally saw him being violent with his PA.
“I am very disappointed as I was a big fan of Sinon – especially for his confidence and his ability to show to people that there is nothing to be ashamed about being gay, and instead it should be celebrated. However, I have met the real Sinon last night – beyond his usual pasarela – someone we should not be proud of in the LGBT community,” Fernandez said.
The man said that they were personally ontroduced in a bar in Makati and thereafter went to a bar in Ortigas.
“Sinon joined our group with his transgender friend, she was very nice to us. Later on we realized that she was his PA. We started to notice though that Sinon was very not treating her very well. I personally saw her sitting down in pain because apparently Sinon twisted her wrist. I initially thought it was just an accident and therefore offered to put some ice on it. I took some cubes of ice, placed it in a tissue paper and gave it to her. I then stood up and went back chatting to my friends. Things seemed to be normal and ok,” he said.
After that, Fernandez said that Loresca started hitting the PA.
“A few minutes after, we all saw Sinon hitting the PA’s head and grabbing her hair down for no reason. You can clearly see that she was hurt and extremely scared, leaving her in tears. Everyone in the group saw it and we were all shocked. My partner Farhad immediately went to Sinon and told him off that what he has done is not ok, and therefore he should either apologize to her or leave our table. Sinon violently replied, “Why should I apologize to her, she is just my maid. I am a celebrity, I can do whatever I want and you cannot do anything about it.” He refused to leave and became violent. “
Loresca then hit Fernandez’ partner, pulled his shirt and left him with scratch marks, prompting them to call security and leave the area.
“While we were outside, we saw Sinon’s PA hiding behind a car and crying. When we approached her and asked her, she said that she was afraid that Sinon would beat her further when they go back to the apartment where they both lived. She once again showed her wrist that was in pain and spoke that this is actually normal in the last few months – that Sinon is naturally violent, ” he said.
He then added that the PA disclosed that she was being ill-treated yet had no choice as the job was her only source of income and that she had no where else to go.
“My heart broke when she said its ok because she has no money and was relying on this job and has no other place to go, so she is willing to risk her safety. We offered help – anything we could to to make her safe – but she insisted that it will just cause her more trouble and she still needs to get her belongings etc. I gave my number and said that she can reach us whenever she felt unsafe or she needs any help.”
The couple filed the complaint for assault at the Pasig City Police in the morning of December 30, claiming that it was their conscience that led them to do so.
“As proud members of the gay community, as a couple, and most importantly as gay parents, we think that it is very important for us to do our part in keeping our community safe and educating others where possible. Regardless whether you are a man, woman or transgender, rich or poor, popular or not – no one has the right to abuse you, ever!” he said.
Along with the post was a photo of Fernandez’ partner showing the scratches he received from Loresca.
Loresca has appeared in several TV shows after his video first became viral in 2016. Prior his showbiz career in the Philippines, he stayed with his husband in London for a time.
His life story was even featured in the show Magpakailanman after his garnered fame.
