MANILA, Philippines - Pinoy Big Brother (PBB) Double Up 4th Big Placer Johan Santos is the latest victim of the perennial sex video scandal in show business.

According to rumors, a video showing a man masturbating is fast spreading online. The man is said to be the former PBB housemate.

In a text message sent to “The Buzz” host Joebert Sucaldito, Santos’s manager, Leo Bukas, denied that his talent was involved in any video scandal.

“Personal na tiningnan ni Johan sa internet ang nude photos at malaswa raw niyang video pero sa halip na magalit ay natawa na lang siya habang pinapanood ito,” said Bukas’s text message, which was read by Sucaldito on “The Buzz” Sunday.

“Maaaring kahawig niya ang lalaking nasa video at larawan, pero it’s very obvious na hindi siya ‘yon. Makikita ang pagkakaiba nila ng lalaki kapag pinanood nang buo ang video. Ipinagtataka lang ni Johan kung ano ang motibo ng taong nagpapakalat ng video. Handa naman siya na harapin ang mga ganitong intriga,” the talent manager added.

The manager also extended Santos's gratitude to his fans for their continued support.

He said: “Nagpapasalamat siya sa concern ng kanyang mga supporters, lalo na ang Johanatics at JoCath fans. Wala silang dapat ipag-alala dahil hindi apektado si Johan sa issue. Nagpapasalamat siya sa ‘The Buzz’ for giving him the chance na makapag-explain.”

Santos currently stars in the afternoon teleserye “Precious Hearts Romances Presents: Love Me Again.” -Report by Napoleon Quintos, ABS-CBN.com
