UPDATE (9:50pm, May 2)
According to the latest updated news report by ABS-CBN:
“In a text message to ABS-CBN News, Bb. Pilipinas Charities Incorporated (BPCI) spokesperson Gines Enriquez said Rodriguez has expressed that she may not accept the crown.
Enriquez added that BPCI is still awaiting the formal letter of resignation from Rodriguez this Tuesday, May 2.
The succession for Rodriguez’s title, if vacated, has yet to be discussed. As of press time, trainer Jonas Gaffud is in talks with Rodriguez regarding the issue.
The statement of Enriquez, however, goes against what Rodriguez said on her social media accounts on Tuesday afternoon.
The beauty queen stressed that she never mentioned anything about not accepting the crown and asked the public to stop making assumptions.”
* Blogger’s Note: As this turns out to be a “he said, she said” situation, we are yet to get confirmation who is saying the truth among the two parties. One thing can be assumed though, this will not be an issue that would be resolved without some punches being thrown…
