24 Jul – Xander Ford (Marlou Arizala) is now claiming to be bisexual, following previous accusations made by his ex-girlfriend that he had raped her.
On 20 July, the singer posted a new video on YouTube titled "Xander Ford Interview with His Boyfriend" to reveal that he is now in a relationship with a man and that the two of them met in 2018 before becoming much closer in 2019.
"We're good friends. I started sharing my problems to him, and he did the same," he said, adding that his boyfriend was even supportive of him when his relationship with his girlfriend ended.
He then stressed that he is not gay, saying that he never had a boyfriend before this.
"I had four girlfriends before. I don't get attracted to men. It's just now that I realised that I had feelings like this that developed towards another man," he said.
However, Arizala's confession was not received well by the public, with netizens accusing him of trying to use the LGBTQ community to protect himself against his ex-girlfriend's rape and abuse allegation.
