Diego Loyzaga posts rants against dad Cesar Montano
The 21-year-old actor is airing his resentment against his dad, claiming the latter kicked him out of the house and accused him of being a drug addict
Many were stunned when actor Diego Loyzaga posted a series of angry posts attacking his father, veteran actor Cesar Montano, who is also the newly appointed Chief Operating Officer of the Department of Tourism (DOT) Tourism Promotions Board (TBP).
The posts were uploaded via his verified Instagram account on February 7, Tuesday and deleted the next day. The young actor took to twitter to explain that he was asked to take the posts down.
In his first rant, the young actor alleged that his dad asked him to leave his own house—which Cesar had given him—after accusing him of being a drug addict.
Diego then condemned his dad for not being able to defend his own children against false accusations.
“Ito ka [Cesar Montano]#sakaypa !!! Padamputin mo na ako, lagyan ako ng karatula diba iyan ang sinabi mo? Kaming dalawa ng kapatid ko? Mag malinis ka na, sakay ka na sa kanila pero sariling mong anak di mo ipagtatangol. Sarili mo lang!” wrote Diego, who is Cesar’s son with actress Teresa Loyzaga.
21-year-old Diego is Cesar’s son with former partner Teresa Loyzaga.
“Magaling, best actor ka nga! Ano pang gusto mo? Drug test? DNA test? 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. Samantalang wala ni isang piso hiningi ko sayo mula bata pa ako. Pang limang drug test na ipinagawa niyo sakin LAHAT negative pero lakas pa rin ng loob mo na pag bintangan akong adik,” he wrote in another post.
He also went on to attack his father’s faith, accusing him of being a hypocrite Christian who goes to church and yet commits sins.
“Makadiyos 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. 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,” wrote Diego.
“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 ngayon!! Kaya siguro pwede ako magsalita nang ganito,” Diego wrote in another post.
Many speculated that his account may have been hacked because his posts were purely in the vernacular. Diego moved to Sydney when he was 5 years old and came back to Manila when he was 15 to pursue an acting career. He has since starred in ABS-CBN shows such as the teleserye Pangako Sa’yo and the youth-oriented series Growing Up.
As of this writing, Cesar Montano has not responded to the accusations. We will be updating this article with his side of the story as soon as possible.
