Web pulsates as Chito Miranda, Neri Naig ‘sex scandal’ deepens


Beleaguered celebrity couple Chito Miranda and Neri Naig pose for a photograph on a beach in this screenshot of an Instagram post of the Parokya ni Edgar frontman.

MANILA, Philippines—Chito Miranda has become a trending topic on Twitter as netizens scour the web for a sex video allegedly involving the Parokya ni Edgar frontman and celebrity girlfriend Neri Naig.

The 7:17-minute video shows a naked couple who appear to be Miranda and his television actress sweetheart making love in various sexual positions. It made its unauthorized screen debut on YouTube, but was quickly taken down.

A cat-and-mouse game has since left YouTube pulsating as users sneak to post a copy of the sex tape that the popular video-sharing website would swiftly expunge.

Porn and file-sharing sites have since carried the steamy film.

Miranda, 37, took to Instagram Saturday to say sorry for a “leaked private video of me and my girlfriend” and later tweeted to explain that his computer hard disk drive and “several other stuff” were stolen.

Later that day, the singer-songwriter posted on Instagram a photo of him and 27-year-old Naig on a beach, bearing the caption “Di n’yo kami matitinag.”

Flaks, calls for respect

The sex scandal draws mixed reactions from cyber citizens. reader Fulpol wonders: “What is the point of ‘video-ing’ your sex stunts with your lover? So you have performance parameters? Parang review ng basketball play. Hindi maganda ang performance kaya aayusin na ang performance next time. I don’t get it.”

Some fans came to their defense.

Al Christine  (@iamalchristine) tweets that Miranda “rocked with us through the years”, while Mike™ (@iamChanMichael) appeals to netizens not to “let one private video destroy Chito Miranda‘s legacy.”

“This should be a lesson for all of us, not an entertainment for perverts,” Mike™ adds.

“OhmyGee!” Meldelyn Deloso says, admitting she has admired Naig even during the reality search show Star Circle Quest on ABS-CBN television in 2004, where she made a 6th runner up finish.

Jesther Capil ‏(@jaaaaaamPONG) professes in a tweet hashtagged #respect his unwavering admiration for his idol. “I will always be a fan of Chito Miranda, no matter what.”

No more Hayden Kho

Harold Geronimo (‏@harold_geronimo) on Twitter opines: “That Chito Miranda-Neri Naig video scandal is another lesson for all couples to stop video recording their own private affairs.”

In 2009, the Internet sizzled after a sex video of celebrity cosmetic surgeon Hayden Kho with actresses Katrina Halili and Maricar Reyes made the rounds on the web after the surgeon’s computer files were stolen. Kho would later be stripped of his professional license and slapped with lawsuits for illegally taking videos of his hot trysts.

Some web citizens simply poke fun at the scandal.

“Only Neri touches my Birdie,” tweets Boy Banatero (‏@BoyBanatero) in what seems to be a funny allusion to Parokya ni Edgar’s 1999 hit single “Don’t Touch My Birdie.”

Joey Kyle ‏(@kyleeismyname) posts a made up message of Kho to Miranda: “Been there, done that bro.”

For YouTube user PinoyCommercials096, the sex video is simply too lurid to handle. “Oh my God I can’t be in here. Oh my God…!!!!!!”

But reader Jaeger Meister, like many netizens, is in dire straits. “Now, the million dollar question is: Where can I find this steamy video, huh?”

    dpa marunong.
    tara, pahiram mo si neri. para next time eh. hehehhe. maganda acting :)

  • virgoyap

    Chito, the only thing that will save the face and honor of your girlfriend is to marry her asap!!

    • Diepor

      Its 2013. Leaked sex clips its good for career.

  • allandel

    if the video was done consensually, no problem. ang masama, hindi alam ng isang party (the girl’s). whatever you are going through, it will all pass. dapat sa lalaki, pakasalan na ang babae para naman mabawasan ang kalbaryo ni girl. i hope this is not a diversion by janet napoles. hawa naman.

  • alex ca

    ginawa nilang history na to so panindigan nila…maraming nakikinabagng kasi free…

  • Iggy Ramirez

    They can do whatever they want. It’s their life. Kasalanan niyo nanood kayo e.

    Chito thanks for the p0rn. Wala na kayong maitatago pa sa akin ngayon. Kita ko na lahat at higit pa sa dapat kong makita.

  • hopelovefaith

    it’s a risk that neri took. she knew there’s a chance that the video could haunt her and it did.
    she can just close this chapter in her life and move on. also, hope that her grandchildren will not discover this video.
    chito has no plans to marry her because that will end his career. he has to appear as available to his female plans to increase his marketability.
    poor neri. you might as well be a spokesperson for women against video taping their sexcapades. at least something good will come out of this. It’s out in the open anyway.
    Good luck, neri. it’s tough, but life has to go on . . .

  • barada69

    my new idol… Chito, you rock !

  • nakatutok

    ano ba big deal sa video na yun…two consenting adults, lalaki at babae…
    big deal yun pag si Chito at Buhawi ang may sex video..
