Former Pinoy Big Brother (PBB) housemate Tricia Santos is rumored to be suffering from anorexia nervosa, an eating disorder that results to excessive weight loss, after photos of her spread in social networking sites Facebook and Twitter.
Tricia, 16, was pictured at the Pais Tropicale: Flores de Mayo 2012 event at the SM Mall of Asia last May 6.
A "better" Tricia:
Tricia has responded to the rumors, denying she is sick. She said she became thin because of the injury she got from playing volleyball.
"Ay, Wala po. Namayat Lang po Talaga Ako nung pagstop ko ng training sa volleyball. Na injure po kasi Ako. Napunit yung muscle ko sa likod. Ayun." the PBB Teen Edition Clash 2010 housemate said in a text message which was tweeted by Julian Mauricio.
Tricia is currently in Pangasinan for the Palarong Pambansa 2012.
