Martin Nievera defends Pops Fernandez from nude photo scandal

MANILA, Philippines - They may have been estranged for a long time now but singer Pops Fernandez can still count on ex-husband Martin Nievera to defend her when she gets into controversy.

Of late, a nasty rumor has put Pops in a very scandalous light. A nude photo of a woman who is said to look like the singer surfaced in cyberspace and eventually made it to the tabs.

Martin was adamant the photo couldn't have been of his ex-wife's.

"No way, not my Pops. No way. Not the Pops that I know. She's a decent woman and I don't think that was Pops," Martin said on "Showbiz News Ngayon," Nov. 14.

Martin added it's not the first time Pops has become victim of such hoax.

"When they take the head off of someone and they put the head of their favorite star....They did it to Pops many years ago and other female colleagues of mine."

Professional graphic artist Edward Lizada also doubts the nude photo's authenticity.

"Una sa lahat,'yung sa mukha nga at saka 'yong sa skin magkaiba. Mas matingkad 'yung sa mukha. So doon pa lang iniisip mo na kung pinatong," he said.

Given the technology today, Edward said it's easy to manipulate photos and make them appear these are of celebrities.

"'Yung mga ganyan, abutin ka lang siguro less than ten minutes. Basta tama lang 'yung anggulo ng mukha at saka 'yung ipapatong," Edward explained.

Martin, obviously displeased with the scandalous photos attributed to his ex-wife, has pled with the perpetrator.

"I've always been mad at anybody who would abuse the beauty and the glamor of Pops. If someone's really been doing that using Pops' face and body, I really would urge him to stop doing that and to get a life. Do something else with yourtime," he said.
