“Actually, the only one that really affected me was the cancer issue,” Derek said.
“Not because dahil sa akin, kasi alam ko namang walang cancer. I was flying to Zurich (Switzerland) with KC Concepcion, Matteo Guidicelli, and Bugoy Drilon, pagdating ko sa airport, that’s the first time na nalaman ko na may cancer ako.”
Derek was shocked because three of them in the family are named Derek Ramsay; his dad, him, and his younger brother. He laughed about it at first but later it made him worry about his Dad. Timingly his father went to the hospital for a check-up.
He wasn’t worried with his younger brother so much because it is only 18. He couldn’t call his Dad the whole trip that made him really bothered. So as he landed in Zurich, he called his Dad and asked:
“Dad, are you hiding something with the family? You know, mabilis akong ma-stress, mabilis akong mag-worry. ”
His dad just scolded him about it. He was just really affected because his family are already involved with the issues and rumors.
Derek was asked on how he handles all the intuges given to him and he answered:
“Alam ko yung totoo. I know the truth. Whether may sex video ako, may cancer ako, may ibang babae ako, hindi ko nga kilala. I just throw it over my shoulder and move on.”
He was also asked if he and girlfriend Angelica Panganiban talk about these issues.
“Angel and I, they always ask me if Angel and I talk about it, pinag-uusapan ba namin. No we don’t. Isang tanong, isang sagot, tapos na. Like I’ve said, sobrang busy kami sa trabaho na hindi namin aaksayahin ang oras,” Derek replied.
