(UPDATED) The camp of the beauty queen calls the posting of the fake photo 'malicious'

Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray went to the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) Tuesday, July 21, to file a complaint against those responsible for spreading her alleged nude photo online.

Gray confirmed this is an interview with ABS-CBN before going to the NBI.

Catriona’s legal counsel, Joji Alonso earlier issued a statement that they were aware that some people were spreading the alleged photo online and that a tabloid was planning to publish it.

The camp of the beauty queen called the posting of the fake photo “malicious.”

In a statement released Tuesday evening, Catriona’s management, Cornerstone Entertainment, said the NBI offered to assist in filing the appropriate cases.

“Earlier today, Ms. Catriona Gray formally sought the assistance of the NBI officials to investigate on the identities of those behind the uploading and seeding of the altered malicious photo, as well as determine the owners of social media accounts created to disparage and malign her name. The NBI has graciously offered to assist in the filing of appropriate cases,” the statement said.

Catriona has been in the headlines recently after her ex-boyfriend, Clint Bondad, posted strange and cryptic messages on Instagram with references to the singer-beauty queen and her current boyfriend, actor Sam Milby.

Sam has since issued a statement defending Catriona, saying he would do everything to protect her. – Rappler.com
