The self-declared young CEO gave this statement an hour after word got out that Erich officially said no to his billboard invitation.
Xian even referenced Ang Probinsyano’s theme "Wag Ka Nang Umiyak" to describe how he feels about Erich’s rejection.
His latest Facebook post read: “cappucciNO!! Nyeeeaaamm!
“Gary Valenciano enters:
"Kung walaaaaa ka naaang maintindihaaan..........”
“CREMATION: July 23, 2017 1PM, Taguig City
“40 DAYS: August 26, 2017 7PM, Taguig City
“BABANG LUKSA: July 17, 2018, To be announced”
Still addressing his grief over Erich's rejection, Xian also posted a meme about burying his feelings at the Libingan Ng Mga Bayani in Fort Bonifacio, Taguig City.
According to Erich, she decided not to accept Xian's billboard invitation after all the exposé about his sketchy business dealings in the past.
Erich's official statement, published on ABS-CBN Online yesterday, July 16, partly read: "Parang naging uncomfortable ako."
VIRAL BILLBOARD INVITATION. It has been more than two weeks since Xian asked for a date with Erich by mounting a billboard along the busy street of Morayta Avenue, Manila.
But what was at first deemed as a romantic gesture eventually turned sour after Xian was accused of being a scammer by Ella Cruz’s mom and two other netizens.
Amid the social-media controversy, Xian admitted to being a “former scammer,” but insisted that he has “entered into a legal settlement to each and every character who became part of those dark chapters of my life.”
XIAN ON HIS "SELFISHNESS, GREEDINESS." In a separate Facebook post yesterday, July 16, the young businessman lamented about his “deep-rooted-hatred, selfishness, and greediness” that caused harm to other people’s lives.
Moving forward, he vowed to be a better person “most specially without stepping-on some lives again.”
