Young singing star Darren Espanto has clarified the issue surrounding his sexual orientation and said that he is not gay.
“Marami ang nagsasabi na uyyy bakla si Darren, that am gay. Nakakatawa sila kasi I know who I am and alam ko pong hindi ako bakla.” said Espanto, during an interview with ABS-CBN’s Hotspot.
(Many say, ‘Darren is gay’, that I am gay. They are funny because I know who I am and I know that I am not gay.).
Fans defended Espanto who said that their idol is well-mannered and a gentleman. Here were some of their comments on ABS-CBN’s Facebook account:
Well mannered lng tlga si D kaya gnyan. Kaya mga bashers wag O.A, paulit-ulit nlng ii palibhasa kc wla ng mapuna yang mga bashers na yan kundi yun nlng ng yun. Kaya D don’t mind them.

The 15-year old singer who won the hearts of fans via the reality show competition “The Voice Kids” where he was runner up openly admitted having a crush on actress Kathryn Bernardo, on-screen sweetheart of Daniel Padilla.
He is also being linked to Cassy Legaspi, daughter of actors Carmina Villaroel and Zoren Legaspi.
