When Liz Uy opened up about her pregnancy and her relationship with a non-showbiz businessman in a tell-all interview titled “Liz Uy Chooses Love,” readers were confused over the timeline of their relationship, claiming it was inconsistent with posts found on social media.
Liz said she learned that she was pregnant in February 2017. She added that she was already in a relationship with partner Raymond Racaza, who was described in the article as “then already estranged from his wife, and who has since been annulled.”
Uy also shared that she met her partner in May 2016 through celebrity friend Isabelle Daza.
Doray Delarmente, a friend of Racaza’s ex-wife Geraldine Zamora-Racaza, said Geraldine underwent a “harrowing experience” during the entire annulment process. Delarmente said she was one of Geraldine’s “constants,” with their friendship going back to their young school days.
She claimed that the annulment of Geraldine and Raymond was only granted by the judge in January 2018 — contradicting Uy’s claim that it happened last year.
An Instagram post by another businessman showed Uy in a picture with Racaza. It was shared on Dec. 4, 2014. Racaza is the third person from the right side of the picture.
There is another post on the same date that featured Uy attending a business event with Racaza.
On Dec. 2, 2014, Isabelle Daza shared a post that showed Uy on stage with Racaza. It went against Uy’s claim that she only met the businessman in May 2016.
Reactions to the tell-all ranged the spectrum. Some readers accused the celebrity stylist of “sugarcoating” her own relationship with a once-married man.
There were also those who defended Uy, saying that people were “victim-blaming” her for the entire issue.
Uy previously surprised her followers when she uploaded a picture of a baby on Instagram on Mar. 16, 2018. The identity of the baby’s father was then undisclosed.
Months before that, the celebrity stylist was already rumored to be pregnant. She flew to the United States in 2017 and missed out on Anne Curtis and Erwan Heussaff’s wedding—who were both her close friends.
When she posted the picture of the baby, she admitted in an interview that her own friends were surprised at the revelation as well.
