All hell broke loose when singer Darren Espanto called out his The Voice Kids alum Juan Karlos Labajo for allegedly tagging him on Twitter with the statement “gayness at its finest”. The tweet was sent on October 19, Friday.

Darren pointed out that JK was just claiming that his account got hacked to clean his image and not get accountable for the said tweet. He also revealed that their record label MCA Music Inc. discussed the issue with JK. Darren tweeted: “Timing ‘no? Dinelete ng “hacker” mo yung tweet na ‘to after kang kausapin ng management. Pag nahanap mo yung hacker mo puntahan niyo ako para malaman niyo kung sino yung totoong BAKLA.”

JK responded by saying that he already talked to Darren about this issue privately, but Darren chose to air it out in public. He tweeted: “Nirespeto kita at kinausap in private, but orayt ayaw mo so gawin nating public”

He then attached screenshots of their private conversation on Instagram wherein JK apologized to Darren, and said that he wasn’t the one who sent that tweet.

Later on, JK went on and told a story about a conflict between them that happened inside the Pinoy Big Brother house. These tweets have now been deleted.

The Buwan singer also expressed his disappointment that Darren chose to believe his fans more, and not him who treated him as a brother since The Voice Kids.  He tweeted: “Tinalikuran mo ang sarili mong kaibigan dahil lang sa mga pinagkakalat ng mga taong nakapaligid sayo, I tried talking to you in private but your ears were covered.”

He also stated how all he wanted was for them to be in good terms. “To be honest, all I really wanted was for us to be in good terms because I don’t like issues,” but then he continued saying that it was Darren who wanted it to be this way. He said: “Again, @Espanto2001, I tried talking to you in private but you started this. Gusto mo bastusan tandaan mo mas bastos ako sayo,”

Darren has since then replied to JK’s tweets and even tagged him to make sure that he would see his response.

  • I don’t think so. It’s hard to hack accounts and given the situation, the darrenatics could have done it themselves. I’m with JK, he is hot and bothered. Buwan all the way.

  • Kung magkaibigan naman talaga sila, Darren wouldn’t so defend himself kay JK. It would seem immature. It’s either sasakay sya sa trip or just lay it low for fucks sake. Ang oa naman nung ikokorte pa, dahil lang tinawag na bading. Defensive sya kase totoo naman na bading sya. Pero sa side naman din ni Darren, maybe, just maybe.. he’s in a closet. You just can’t pull someone out of the closet. Baka naoffend sya.

  • kuya jk grabe mapag sabihan mo si darren na bakla syempre mag rereact sya eh paninirang puri na yang ginawa mo matagal mo na pala sina sabi yan pinapalagpas nya lang pero ngayong 17 nasya di nya na kayang tanggapin mga sinasabi mo
    sorry po kung nasaktan ka pero totoo naman
    reminder hindi sya bakla itatak mo yan sa isip mo

  • They are artist. Ok lng na magwala sila if ginawan sila ng issue which makakasira sa pangalan niila especially yung gender pa nila ang quinestion.. come on guys! We all know nman na mga gossipers tayo at mahilig tayo magkalat ng tsismis at balita disregarding if it’s true or not.. tsaka pakialam niyo ba kung gay siya or not, buhay niyo nlng ayusin niyo. Buhay niyo nga di niyo maayos tapos ang galing niyo magjudge ng buhay ng iba😂

  • Ayaw ko maniwala sa issue, lalo na ang issue duon sa pbb, mayron artista makapagsabi wala silang narinig paninira sa isang artista na friend niya..

    At nabasa ko rin ang answer ni jk, wala siya sinabi na bakla si D, at wala siya duda sa pagkatao ni D..piru ang lumabas sa stismis….tini Twist ang tamang sagot..at nakita ko kay jk he is a good kid, kind hearted funny so theres no reason he did it, hindi nakita ang pangit na ugali…mabait siya kinkisskiss at binuhat pa ang lola..sa kanya ko lang nakita at wala sa iba..
    Speaking of laos, paano naman maka work wala naman project binigay. At tested na siya effective mag acting magaling, kaya nga tinawag siya na Jhon loyd , Good singer, talented young man and has a lot to offer in the industry..tall handsome attractive….yon lang fan gusto sumira sa kanilang closeness ..sana makita namin siya sa Tv or movie…sana magkaayos sila pariho sila magaling, mabait…..

    Ang Advice ko kay D..sana hindi siya onesided..hondi lang ang relasyon niya sa fans ang iniingatan…makinig ka sa side ni JK..dahil mahirap…at duon makita nyo sino ang tama ..pariho ang work nyo so mayron fan gusto simira sa isa…daghang salamat.I love you
