Sisters Toni and Alex Gonzaga have come to be known as conservative ladies in an otherwise liberal entertainment industry. This is because their parents have always been overprotective and strict when it comes to the girls.
As an effect, fans have taken the same protective – some say overbearing – position with the two. Which is the exact reason why Alex Gonzaga’s boyfriend, Mikee Morada, has been criticized by many netizens following the pair’s recent trip abroad.
Many fans wondered why Alex was allowed to travel abroad with her boyfriend, whereas her elder sister Toni was only allowed to travel abroad with her husband, Paul Soriano, after they’ve already tied the knot.
Alex Gonzaga, for her part, defended her boyfriend and explained how they weren’t alone during their trip abroad. She further clarified that Mikee’s entire family was there.
The US trip was for Alex’s high school best friend’s wedding. Mikee is actually a US citizen who used to live in the States, so he tagged along. Alex explained all of this on Twitter after a netizen questioned Mikee’s pure intentions towards her.
Another issue brought up by netizens was Mikee’s alleged ‘misdeameanor’ as seen on Alex’s recent vlog. For some netizens, Mikee seemed rude. The singer-host explained that her boyfriend was simply being goofy and aloof.
Watch the aforementioned vlog below and let us know what you think.
Fortunately, Alex’s loyal fans came to her defense. Here is one encouraging message from a Twitter user:
“Enjoy life! It’s too short to dwell on people like them! Tomorrow is never promised! One of the things I regret is that I used to overthink of what people would think and say. And with that, I missed a lot of things. When you’re in Love, just LOVE God bless!”
