It’s been more than 24 hours since the argument of Filipino vlogger and former FHM model China Roces was broadcast live. The video has now been deleted, but followers were able to record it and it’s been circulating online since then.
Both China Roces and Tim Sawyer have been busy in their personal online accounts, with China posting a short caption with their family photo on her Facebook account: “Akala ko aabutin namin ang pangarap ng magkasama para sa anak namin! Noon pala, lahat lang pala ng ginagawa namin ay para sa sarili niya! Nakakalungkot lang kasi nasilaw ka sa pera! Ginamit mo lang kami ng anak mo! Mas gugustuhin mo pa ibang babae makatrabaho at makasama.. wag mo lang maibigay ‘yung karapatan ko! (I thought that we can make our dream of being together for our child come true. But all that we did are for him alone. It's just so sad that he's blinded by money! You just used me and our son. You'd rather be work and be with another woman, just don't give away my rights!”
With over 47,000 reactions, 6,100 comments, and 5,200 shares, her followers showed their support with these comments:
Stay strong and keep going for your son and yourself. Huwag mong sayangin ang luha mo sa isang taong (Don't waste your tears on a man who is) irresponsible, unfaithful, at grabe makapagmura (swears a lot). Ask for strength, guidance, and leadership at masayang buhay niyong mag-ina sa Panginoong Diyos (a good life for you and your son from the Lord). You're young and beautiful, better and peaceful life is waiting ahead. — Lilian Lambino
Prayers for your family! Sana God gives you both strength na wag sumuko sa isa’t isa. Sayang family ninyo (Don't give up on your each other and your family). —Gwen Villa
Love yourself and Timothy. I know how much you love Tim despite all the hurt feelings you’ve been through. You are the only one who can tell if you will pursue your relationship with him and how long you want to deal with his shortcomings. There is always a limit of how long you can handle these. Love yourself and don’t give 100 percent of your love.— Carol Pulvinar
On the other hand, Tim posted a lengthier post in his personal Facebook account. He started by apologizing for all the drama and admitted that this issue has been going on since July 29. He left the house right after the argument to avoid fighting even more, and rented a house nearby. He even mentioned that he had no intention of keeping the money he earned a secret forever. He knows that his wife will figure it out sooner or later.
He further explained that he wanted to stop producing videos already because he was tired of making them. He loves his wife and son very much, even if they argue a lot. He knows he has hurt China with him flirting with other women, but he will never be greedy when it comes to money.
His followers were quick to share their sentiments with a mix of 262,000 reactions, 97,000 comments, and 63,000 shares.
Dapat equal sharing kayo dahil kasama mo siya sa mga videos mo. Don’t be selfish. — Chit Velasco
Halata sa statement mo kung ano talaga gusto mo. Pera pera lang talaga. Actually, madamot ka talaga lumabas sa statement mo. Asawa mo naman si China at hindi ibang tao. Natural, dapat lang alam nya lahat kinikita mo at hati kaayo kasi malaki ambag ni China sa content mo. — Kakai Villarez
Money is the root of all evil. Hindi mo sya naiintindihan. Ginagamit na lang ni China na issue ngayon ang pera, pero ang totoo, takot atang iwanan mo sya. Takot syang iwanan mo sya kasi kilala ka niya. Kung away, away lang. Baka nararamdaman nya talaga na may third party involved kasi nga coming from your mouth, ilang beses ka na nya nahuhuli nambababae. Nasaktan lahat sa kanya. Kakapanganak lang nya, may possibility na nagkaroon siya ng postpartum depression. — Mhela Olmedo
