MANILA, Philippines – Neri Naig on Sunday revealed that she locked herself in her room for two weeks and just wanted to disappear, after learning that a sex video involving her and boyfriend Chito Miranda was leaked online.

Addressing the incident for the first time, the actress said in a statement sent to Philippine Daily Inquirer, “I am not yet ok, but I am getting there.”

“As soon as I found out that our video went viral, I sent a message to my family agad [right away] and for two weeks, nagkulong lang ako sa room ko [I locked myself in my room] and just wanted to disappear. I didn’t want to see or talk or hear from anyone,” Naig explained.

The television actress devoted most of her written statement thanking people who supported and defended her and the Parokya ni Edgar vocalist.

She said Miranda had asked her to watch footages of news and television shows which she said were “fair and unbiased” and had helped “ease the pain.”

Naig also thanked the National Bureau of Investigation for immediately addressing the incident, even before they filed the case.

“Kung pwede lang po talagang yakapin lahat ng tao na umalalay, nagpakita ng pagmamahal at support sa amin ni Chito…Maraming maraming salamat po [If I could only hug everyone who helped and supported Chito and I. We’re very thankful],” she said.

    Ok lang ang ginawa nilang 2, matatanda na ang mga to at alam nila ang consequence nyan. Huwag lang kayong mamerwisyo ng NBI o DOJ at taxes na naman ng tao ang gusto nyong pakialaman. Di kayo sakop ng Cybercrime Law o Voyeurism Law dahil kayo mismo ang gumawa nito at obvious namang alam nyong binibidyuhan nyo ang mga sarili. Ang pinoprotektahan lang ng Anti voyeurism Law o cybercrime ay yung sikretong kinunan ng walang pahintulot. Wag nang dumagdag pa sa paglustay ng taxes at sawa na ang tao sa walang kapararakang gastos. Kayo na ang bahala sa mga moral nyo alam nyo kung pano ito ibalik problema nyo na yan.
