UST's EJ Laure debunks pregnancy rumors, addresses fans

MANILA, Philippines – University of Santo Tomas star spiker EJ Laure made her first public appearance of the year on Saturday, as she watched the UAAP Season 80 game between the Golden Tigresses and the De La Salle University Lady Spikers at the Mall of Asia Arena.

It marked the first time that the former UAAP Rookie of the Year had been seen by fans since revealing in December that she will miss the season due to a "chronic shoulder injury."

Her decision to sit out the year became social media fodder, due in part to the vague nature of her injury. Fans openly wondered if it was indeed the true reason, with some speculating that she had academic shortcomings. Others even posited that Laure was pregnant.

"Tao din naman sila, meron silang sariling opinyon," Laure said Saturday as she discussed for the first time the social media backlash that she was mired in. "Hindi ko maiiwasang 'wag sabihin sa kanila na, ''Wag, 'di ganoon.' Sa kanila na rin 'yun."

Laure made it clear that the fans' speculation were false.

"Hindi naman totoo 'yung sinasabi nila," she stressed.
