The 20-year-old actor, who stars in the weekend teen show "Luv U," became a trending topic on Twitter nationwide following circulation of pictures showing a male individual flaunting his manhood in front of the camera.
Reports said the screenshots were grabbed from a lewd clip and that the physical features of the man in it have striking resemblance to that of Marco, brother of famous DLSU Lady Spikers member Michele Gumabao.
The actor, however, apparently brushed off the controversy and even joked about the alleged scandal photos in his tweets, saying the images were just manipulated.

But Marco got a little serious in one status message when some netizens linked the rumored clip to the alleged scandal video of his fellow Kapamilya star Andrea Brillantes.
