EJ Laure has jokingly confronted boyfriend Bugoy Cariño after photos of him show staring at a woman.
Facebook page “ACE.EM Photography” uploaded photos of Cariño at a basketball game in Iloilo City on August 17.
The couple went live on Facebook with Laure constantly asking her boyfriend who the woman in question was.
“Ako ba yan?” Cariño said.
It was later revealed that the woman was Red Alexandria Bedonia, who is somewhat a local celebrity.
Cariño’s relationship with Laure was highly criticized due to their age gap. Cariño became a father at just 16 years of age, while Laure was 21.
In June, he sat down with Karen Davila and explained why he didn’t file charges against Laure for having sexual relations with a minor.
“Nakikita ko po ‘yung mga sinasabi ng mga tao na dapat kasuhan si EJ, kasi nga minor ako. Hindi naman po sila ‘yung magkakaso eh, dapat ako ‘yung magkakaso kay EJ kasi ako ‘yung minor. Pero pinili ko na, gusto ko maging masaya na lang. Gusto ko na maging parte ng buhay ko si EJ…. Sobrang mahal ko si EJ.” he said.
“Mahirap po kasi sa akin, nawala lahat nang mga gusto kong gawin.… Nagbago po talaga ang buhay ko simula noong naging tatay ako,” he added.

Because the two agreed to start a family, Laure was prompted to quit her volleyball career.
“Hindi ako masisisi ng tao. Hindi masisisi si EJ ng mga tao kung bakit hindi namin napigilan ang sarili. Ako po talaga ang may gusto kay EJ. Kaya sabi ko sa kanya, ‘wag mo na pansinin. Pagdating naman ng panahon, wala na ‘yan eh. Magbabago na din isip nila.”
