Former television personality Jay Sonza claims that the Popstar Royalty Sarah Geronimo-Guidicelli supports presidential candidate Ferdinand "Bongbong" Marcos Jr. and his running mate Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte. 

In a Facebook post on Friday, February 4, Sonza, dubbed as the 'Fake News King', pronounced that Geronimo is one of the “well respected and decorated entertainment personalities” who are rallying behind the BBM-Sara UniTeam.

The infamous former newscaster also included in the list of television personalities that supports the BBM-Sara candidacy are Toni Gonzaga, multi-awarded actress Elizabeth Oropesa, and Legendary singer Maria Theresa Llamedo, better known as Dulce,

“Bakit iyong mga well respected and decorated entertainment personalities are rallying behind the UniTeam of BBM-SARA? i.e. The queen of all media Toni Gonzaga. The multi-awarded female actor Elizabeth Oropesa. The pop princess and new concert queen Sarah Geronimo. Asia’s Grand Prix winner Dulce,” he wrote. 

Sonza clarified that he is just asking and his inquiry should not be met with malice. 

The pop superstar however did not release any statement about the candidate she will be supporting in the May 2022 elections. 

In September 2020, Sonza faced a cyberlibel complaint filed by actress Julia Barretto. This is after the former peddled that the actress was pregnant with Gerald Anderson’s child. Two months later, Sonza was no-show to explain his side against the complaint before the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) Cybercrime Division.

The now pro-administration blogger has a long and well-documented history of posting false claims or disinformation against several personalities in the opposition, particularly presidential aspirant and Vice President Leni Robredo.
