China Roces, a model and actress, is allegedly the woman in the Paolo Bediones sex video that leaked online recently.
UPDATE: Roces has denied being the woman.
—————-Original story below
Roces, 22, lives in Makati City. She has modeled for companies including Tanduay, Burker King, and FilAsia.
Her name China is based on a famous street in Makati.
She said that “Originally, I was supposed to be a part of a girl group called Street Beauties. Yung mga names namin are based on the famous streets around the metro, like Timmy Morato, Aurora Boulevar, and China Roces.”
Several photos from her Facebook profile appear to show her with 40-year-old Bediones, an anchor for TV5. In them, Bediones is accepting some type of award. However, it appears that she has since deleted the photos.
TV5 has come out and said that it will not fire Bediones for the video.
“The recent issue involving our news anchor, Paolo Bediones, on social media is a purely personal and private matter in which TV5 has no involvement or desire to intrude,” TV5 said in the statement.
“We accord our employees and talents all respect that are due them for their privacy and personal action or decision. We disapprove strongly the malicious and wanton publication of the video, an act that clearly violates pertinent cybercrime laws. We firmly express our support for our anchor Paolo Bediones in the face of a controversy that represents nothing more than an attempt to smear his reputation.”
