Is Diego Loyzaga dating ex-PBB housemate Franki Russell?
Diego Loyzaga and former “Pinoy Big Brother” housemate Franki Russell are speculated by fans to be in a relationship after photos of them together were posted and eventually deleted by Russell.
Loyzaga, who was celebrating his birthday, received a greeting from Russell via her Instagram Stories on Friday, May 20. Russell reportedly deleted the post a few minutes after, but fan sites have already re-uploaded the photos on social media.
In one of the photos, Loyzaga and Russell can be seen in an embrace, looking at each other while the actor holds Rusell’s face. The two also held each other while Russell was getting a tattoo.
While she deleted her initial post, Russell greeted the actor again and called him “papi,” via her Instagram Stories yesterday, May 21.
“Happy birthday [Diego Loyzaga]. You have the biggest heart and everyone around you is so lucky to have someone like you in their life, ” she said. “27 ain’t ready for you papi.”
Loyzaga then reposted the greeting on his Instagram Stories, saying “Thank you. Cheers” with heart-on-fire emoji.
Meanwhile, the actor and his ex-girlfriend, actress Barbie Imperial, had a playful exchange in Instagram last March, where she told Loyzaga, “Ako nga pala ‘yung sinayang mo (I’m the one you wasted, by the way).”
Imperial and Loyzaga’s breakup was confirmed to the public in February. Though they did not disclose the cause of the split, they said that they ended their relationship on good terms. JB
