Diego Loyzaga posts series of rants at father Cesar Montano on IG
An enraged Diego Loyzaga lashed out at his father, Cesar Montano, on his Instagram account that sent the online community abuzz.
In a post on Tuesday, Loyzaga said his dad had threatened to put him under police custody because of “drug use.”
“Ito ka ???? @cesar_montano #sakaypa!!! Padamputin mo na ako lagyan ako ng karatula diba iyan ang sinabi mo?” he said in his first post.
Loyzaga admitted that he had submitted himself to a series of drug tests, which all had negative results, and yet, he said, his father insisted that he was using drugs.
“Samantalang wala ni isang piso hiningi ko sayo mula bata pa ako. Pang limang drug test na ipinagawa niyo sakin LAHAT negative pero lakas parin ng loob mo na pag bintangan akong adik. Ano pa ngayon? Ano pang intriga gusto mong gawin?” the actor said in a later post.
Montano’s son also brought out other issues against his father including being driven away from the house that he said his dad had given him. “Ako ba talaga anak mo? Ilan ba talaga kaming anak mo? Baka hindi ka pa sigurado. Pinapalayas mo pa ako sa bahay na iniwan mo para sakin.”
He said in another post: “Kaming dalawa ng kapatid ko? Mag malinis ka na sakay ka na sakanila pero sariling mong anak di mo ipagtatangol. Sarili mo lang! Magaling ???????????????? best actor ka nga! Ano pang gusto mo? drug test? DNA test?”
The Star Magic artist also said he was speaking not only for himself but also his siblings.
“Ramdam na ramdam ko nga na mahal mo ko. Salamat. Makadyos ka pa? Panay simba ka nga pero wala kang ginawa kung hindi gumawa ng kasalanan. I think i speak on behalf of all my siblings.”
Loyzaga also let out his pent-up sentiment about being “unwanted” by his father ever since he was a child.
“SANA LUMABAS LAHAT NG BAHO MO. Duwag!! – written by the UNGRATEFUL child who was denied by his father. So really am i an UNGRATEFUL “CHILD” because to him i am not even his child,” he said.
In another post, the 21-year-old actor reposted his father’s Instagram post that said he [Cesar Montano] already paid for the tuition of his daughters with estranged wife Sunshine Cruz, showing in the photo documents and checks as proof that he was doing his fatherly obligations to his children.
Loyzaga blasted him saying it was his obligation to send his children to school and that it was just right for his siblings unlike him, who “never got a taste of a single child support from his father since he was born.” Because of this, he said he had the right to get mad.
In other rants, he wrote:
“Salamat naman sa dyos pinagaral mo ang mga anak mo. Karapatdapat lang naman ata ng isang ama gawin yun eh no?”
“Pangako mo sakin? Nasaan na? Ayaw mo pa gawin to sa social media? Eh ako din ayoko sana pero puro ka hocus pocus. Daig mo pa magician.”
“Wag ka nalang sana mag satsat kung di mo tutuparin. Sa lahat ng nakakabasa nito iisipin niyo siguro wala akong respeto kasi ama ko iyan pero sana tandaan niyo mula ng pinanganak ako ng nanay ko dineny ako niyan hanggang ngayon!!”
“Kaya siguro pwede ako magsalit[a] ng ganito.”
Besides his rants showing his hurt feelings, Loyzaga shared a strange message saying that if he goes out missing, it only meant one thing.
“Asahan niyo na pag ako nawala bigla o makita niyo nalang ako sa news na pinatay ako dahil daw drug adik/pusher o kaya na accidente at namatay, alam niyo na kung bakit. ????????????????????????” he said.
Because of the sudden outburst of the Kapamilya actor, many netizens were quite hesitant to believe it was indeed him writing the posts since they were written in Filipino. He grew up in Australia and is presumed not to speak the language quite well.
However, Loyzaga clarified that his account was not hacked and that, since he grew up with his mom (former actress Teresa Loyzaga) in Australia, he was used to speaking the local language.
In the end, he sent out a direct message to his father:
“COMMENT PA SIGE. SHOWBISS LANG PALA AKO?? Ka tagal tagal ko ng na nanahimik tungkol dito pero kahit sinong tao napupuno din!!! @cesar_montano”
He also said that he hoped all his father’s dirty linen would come out. “SANA LUMABAS LAHAT NG BAHO MO. Duwag!”
Cesar Montano has been delegated by Pres. Rodrigo Duterte to head the Tourism Promotions Board under the Department of Tourism, which explains his zealous support for the administration’s deadly war on drugs.
As of Wednesday, the young actor’s posts on his Instagram account have been deleted.
