According to some screengrabs of the book’s pages, Mark tells the story of how he and his “male friend” had fallen into a “bromance.” He shared that the two stars had been trying to avoid the temptation of seeing each other but still got “intimate” twice. After the incident, Mark promised to completely avoid the actor. It worked for several years, until one drunken night at a bar.

Mark shared that he was at a club when his “male friend” and his girlfriend joined the party. The singer-performer tried his best to evade his friend but to no avail. Once his girlfriend left, Mark described, “We then got so drunk that I ended up going home with him. I spent the night in his house and we became intimate.”

Mark admits that the girlfriend found out their affair the following day and was so angry, “This started a huge drama between the three of us. It became a spectacle.”

The incident spread like wildfire but Mark said, “I kept my silence and allowed myself to be hurt by all the rumors.” He added that despite all the rumors, he never said a word about his male friend and against his girlfriend.

Coming out?

Rumors of Mark “coming out” this year had been circulating since December 2017. The singer spent a time in London to star in the musical Here Lies Love as former President Ferdinand Marcos. Friends close to the actor believed that “Something profound happened to Mark during his prolonged stay abroad.” They added that Mark’s book, “Will leave nothing to the imagination and it is bound to cause a lot of people sleepless nights.”

Mark will also guest on Joanna Ampil’s 25th anniversary concert on February 14. The concert is coincidentally titled, Love Wins.
