MANILA — Issa Pressman, the model and artist who became the target of mudslinging amid allegations linking her to the breakup of Nadine Lustre and James Reid, has finally broken her silence.
On Friday, the younger sister of actress Yassi Pressman released a short statement on Instagram, along with a photo of what appears to be her shadow.
She wrote, unedited: “If I stay silent, i’m ‘guilty’. If I stand up for myself, i’m ‘defensive’. The world judges either way. But to end it here & now, everything is 100% FALSE. #ThinkBeforeYouClick.”
Yassi earlier on Wednesday similarly urged her followers against cyberbullying, as she defended Issa amid accusations that she caused the separation of Lustre and Reid.
Lustre expressed her love to the sisters in a comment on Yassi’s post, while Reid left an apology to them both for getting dragged into the issue — clearing Issa of any involvement in the relationship.
Lustre has time and again identified Yassi, a fellow Viva talent and her former movie co-star, as one of her closest friends in showbiz.
Issa is also under Viva Artists Agency, and has been seen in the same circle of friends as Lustre and Reid.
