- Last week, President Rodrigo Duterte revealed personal information about Senator Leila De Lima when he rebuked her for her involvement in illegal drugs and conspiring with high-profile inmates at New Bilibid Prison
- The tough-talking president recently revealed that the senator has a new boyfriend but still insists that it was her on the sex tape which was released in 2014
- Despite his accusations, De Lima has continued to deny her involvement in all of them
President Rodrigo Duterte has updated the public yet again with more details on Senator Leila De Lima's personal life, after shocking the whole nation with her 'crimes of passion'.
The ongoing 'national telenovela' between the two has reached new heights when the tough-talking president berated the senator for 'serious violations of law' due to her immorality.
It has been reported that during her term as Justice Secretary, she collected money from drug lords and used it in her campaign to run for senator earlier this year. Her former driver and alleged boyfriend, Ronnie Dayan, was the one who picked up the tabs at New Bilibid Prison.

However, Duterte is not yet done attacking the senator and has dropped another bombshell about her. Earlier today, he shared that De Lima has a new boyfriend named Warren who works at the Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA). He added that the senator's new boy toy also serves as her escort and apparently is not involved in drugs compared to Dayan.

The president also boldly claimed that it was De Lima who was in that sex tape which made rounds on the Internet two years ago.
"Lumabas na lahat e, pati 'yung kalokohan niya sa kama. Hindi photoshop 'yan, sinadya talaga ng lalake 'yan at pumayag 'yan. Because na-in love 'yan," he said.
(Everything came out, even her escapades in bed. It's not photoshopped, the guy wanted it [the video] and she agreed. Because she fell in love.)
De Lima has continued to deny Duterte's revelations but has yet to comment on these new pieces of information about her.
It cannot be denied that the president is not pleased with the senator who has continued to criticize his war against drugs. However, a shocking plot twist turned the tables against her and she has now been painted as a hypocrite due to her carnal desire.
"What is really very—how will I term it—what is very sad for this country is, here is a woman posturing herself as a crusader for good government but because hindi niya mapigilan ang immorality niya," Duterte said.
(What is really very—how will I term it—what is very sad for this country is, here is a woman posturing herself as a crusader for good government but because she cannot stop her immorality.)
