Ethel Booba reportedly back with ex-boyfriend after almost setting condo on fire over "gay" issue
(SPOT.ph) According to Ethel Booba’s friend John Sung, the comedian has gotten back together with her ex-boyfriend, reports Manila Bulletin. Last week, Ethel almost set her condominium unit in Quezon City on fire when she supposedly found out that he was gay.
"Ethel and Marius Miria are back together," Manila Bulletin quoted Sung, who took her in after the fire on March 11. "In fact Marius has been spending nights here with Ethel."
Sung also denied that Miria is gay. "Ganoon naman talaga si Ethel ’pag galit, tinatawag niya bakla lahat. Pero hindi bakla si Marius. Mahal siya ni Ethel kaya wala siyang pakialam kung ang buong mundo isipin bakla siya. Kasi mahal niya si Ethel." ("Ethel is really like that when she’s angry; she calls everyone gay. But Marius is not gay. Marius loves Ethel and he doesn’t care if the whole world thinks he’s gay.")
According to Manila Bulletin, Sung allowed the comedian to stay with him but she had to promise not to set his unit on fire.
The report also cited the comedian’s contrasting statements to radio dzBB right after the fire. Ethel first said that she intended to burn her unit so that she could die, but later said it was a janitor-who supposedly has a crush on her-who set the unit on fire.
