During a recent e-mail interview with PEP, the vlogger reiterated that she does not regret calling Nadine Lustre a copycat.
Here is Ericka Villongco’s statement:
“My fans were tagging me in multiple photos comparing the same top I wore months back, the same caption, her lip fillers and several other aesthetic resemblances.
“I remember thinking to myself ‘wow, this girl can get any bag she wants, but she bought the same YSL I had?'”
“It just started to look like a trend of the many different things I was so proud to love.”
“It’s not my character to ruin someone’s reputation over a mere guess or feeling but, I’m sorry to say, I don’t regret calling Nadine a copycat.”
“I met her when she was shooting Diary ng Panget with James & I always thought she was a beautiful girl but I take pride in who I am & all the aesthetic life choices that go with my personality so when you have an art style so close to your soul, you know by heart when someone’s just replicating it…”
“In all honesty, I’m kinda flattered… but i’m only human and it started to bug me when these comments came along with hateful ones as well.”
“These people have called me many hurtful things over the years for merely being the ex-girlfriend of James and that is not fair.”
“It took me a while for to heal from those wounds & I can finally say that I’m out here living MY OWN truth & MY best life.”
“I welcome everyone to view my private life on social media but I want these fans to know that the person I show is only a mere percentage of the human being I am in real life.”
