Last October 26, during the Magpasikat segment in It’s Showtime, Vice Ganda admitted his relationship with Ion Perez.
He told a story about being alone in his Magpasikat performance because he didn’t have a partner. He explained that it was hard for him to do the performance alone.
He said, “Mahirap sa buhay na maramdaman mong mag-isa ka at pinipilit mong kumbinsihin yung sarili mo na kaya mo mag-isa. In reality, sa totoong buhay, hindi po natin kayang mag-isa. Kailangan natin ng katulong. Maaaring pamilya o ang Panginoon, pero kailangan natin ng tulong. Hindi tayo puwedeng mag-isa.”
He later on said that, he has someone who can rely on in life already and when Anne Curtis and Vhong Nacarro asked about it, Vice Ganda pointed out Ion Perez.
“Wala, kasi yun nga ang lagi kong sinasabi ko sa kanya, siguro minahal ko sa kanya yung nakikita niyo sa kanya.Siguro bonus lang na naging Vice Ganda, pero yun talaga yung minahal ko—si Tutuy,” Ion said.
Tutuy is Vice Ganda’s nickname. It was year 2018 when the couple was first linked.
