“Bulgar” responded to the demands made by Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray who is seeking P10 million in damages and a public apology over the tabloid’s publication of her fake topless photo. Entertainment editor of Bulgar Janice Navida issued their statement published on their website.
“It’s really unfortunate and I feel so sorry that we came to this point when we could have talked nicely,” said Navida adding that Catriona’s lawyer, Atty. Jojie Alonso is “a good friend in the entertainment world.”

Navida made it clear that the intention of Bulgar in publishing the photo was to “inform the readers, not just you and your camp, that someone, or maybe a group of people, is doing this, spreading the obscene photo through online to destroy your name.”
“I hope too that you may see our intention to help you in clearing your name to the whole universe that the nude photo circulating online is fake and edited only, that’s why when we learned about your clarification on the matter, we quickly posted your camp’s statement on our Facebook page and website to enlighten everybody about that controversial photo,” added Navida.
“But please consider to understand that we are here not to be your enemy but to help you clear your name ‘coz we know the feeling that you are being talked about behind your back and have no way to defend yourself.” Navida wrote.
