Yassi Pressman backs sister Issa amid James-Nadine breakup
MANILA, Philippines — Actress Yassi Pressman defended her sister Issa after rumors about the latter being the third party of James Reid and Nadine Lustre surfaced online.
While she said they did not intend to address the issue, Yassi stressed she cannot allow malicious allegations against her sister.
“Hindi po papatol ang kapatid ko sa mga sinasabi ninyo. Pero bilang Ate, hindi ko naman po yata kayang panuorin na patuloy po siyang binabato ng mga masasakit na salita dahil nananahimik siya,” Yassi said Wednesday in an Instagram post.
Yassi shared her sentiments as a caption to a photo of herself and Lustre. She even said, “This was me and nadz last night, watching how some of us become cruel over untrue statements.”
“Initially we all laughed about how crazy the things that woke us up yesterday were, and then…. they started getting out of hand, at di na yun tama,” she added.
Following the confirmation of Reid and Lustre’s split, Yassi’s sister Issa became a trending topic online after netizens alleged she was the third party of the breakup.
Yassi called on the netizens against tolerating cyberbullying and stressed the need to be careful with what they say.
“Ayaw na po sana namin patulan, but we decided to post something because cyber-bullying is not okay, it is never okay. Be careful with the words you say, and things you THINK are true on social media,” Yassi said.
“They’re not always the truth. Do not be so quick to point fingers, when you do not have the proper information,” she continued. “We’re all okay. Sana po kayo din. Let’s respect everyone.”
Reid and Lustre ended their nearly four-year relationship after they decided to focus on their careers and personal growth.
