“Yes. I am a lesbian,” the 21-year-old answers. “What is the problem with that? Because for me, I don’t think there’s a problem with that.”

Since Charice's brave decision to publicly reveal her secret, she's become estranged from her mother, Raquel Pempengco, reports Wetpaint. And the actress apologizes to her fans who may have a hard time understanding or accepting the news.
