Vicki Belo defends Hayden Kho in Marie France controversy, denies Kho tweeted for Belo publicity
Cosmetic surgeon Vicki Belo has defended her boyfriend Hayden Kho Jr. who was involved in a controversial exchange of words with Sharon Cuneta over the actress’ Marie France advertisement.
"There (are) thousands of billboards on EDSA, hindi ko alam (bakit) it had to be that she thinks it’s her (I don’t know why she thinks it’s her)," ABS-CBN News quoted Belo, who was referring to Kho’s tweet rumored to be an attack against Cuneta’s Marie France ad. Kho has denied that he was referring to Cuneta but the latter questioned his explanation.
"I find it so overblown out of proportion. Sana naman, peace, peace, peace na, 'di ba?" Belo said yesterday. "Everybody should be beautiful. And I wish everybody to lose weight."
In a Manila Bulletin report, Belo denied that Kho’s tweet was a publicity stunt for the Belo Medical Group. "The Belo way is classy. Never would we do anything like that."
She added, "I don’t try to get into controversy. In fact, I avoid it. I think (they’re the ones) getting a lot of publicity. We keep seeing the name of that clinic (Marie France). I think it's more for them and ginagamit lang kami (we’re just being used)."
