(SPOT.ph) The local fashion and automobile industries were abuzz over the weekend after model and host Joey Mead took to Instagram to post a photo captioned "Freedom" (below).
Her husband, Victoria Court managing director and car enthusiast Ian King has come out as a transgender woman, Angelina Mead King.
Angelina's second Instagram account, @hailtothe_queen_, has been active since 2012, documening her journey as a trans woman over the years. She often shared OOTD photos, but has only posted a photo with Joey yesterday, July 2, whom she called her "rock and number one supporter."
The couple were married in November 2011. Since the news broke, their closest friends including former beauty queen Maggie Wilson and motoring journalist James Deakin took to social media to express their support for Angelina.
"So one of the car guys I look up to the most is now a woman," wrote Deakin in a Facebook post. "Hey, if you ain't hurting anyone and it makes you happy, it's all the same to me. Good luck, Ian/Angie."
The couple will reportedly be releasing a statement soon.
