Duterte said he used to be gay but got cured when he started a relationship with beautiful women

The 74-year-old stated this when he spoke to a Filipino crowd in Japan.

The President told the crowd that his critic Senator Antonio Trillanes IV was also gay.

Duterte said he became a man again when he married his first wife Elizabeth Zimmerman.

President Duterte was married to Elizabeth Zimmerman, 71, from 1973 until 2000 and they had two children together.

“I said, ‘Are you sure?’ They said, ‘You ask any gay person who sees Trillanes move, they’ll say he’s gay.

“No wonder. Good thing Trillanes and I are similar. But I cured myself,” CNN quoted him as saying.

“When I began a relationship with Zimmerman, I said, this is it. I became a man again.

“First you shouldn’t be married okay. Second, you are not a minor. You ma’am. You want a smooch?

“Those four come here. Let them come up. Let them in.” He also professed his love for Ms Avanceña, calling her his “one and only.”
