Actor accused of fabricating Instagram photo scandal

Filipino model-actor Teejay Marquez has been accused of fabricating controversy after scandalous photos of him surfaced online via Instagram.

The 21-year-old former GMA-7 talent, who played Jake Sta. Maria in the now defunct comedy-drama television series "Dream Dad" aired on the Kapamilya network, ABS-CBN, allegedly created an Instagram account for the scandal.

In one of the pictures in the scandal account, a man whose physical features resemble that of Teejay is seen playing with his manhood. The caption mentions a "lost iPhone" and warns that more scandal photos will be leaked.

A follower who uses the handle 'anneleechi' commented that the actor used his own FB account to register. Popular gossip site Fashion Pulis also posted a screenshot of notifications linking the actor to the scandal account.

While there were speculations that he faked his own photo scandal in an apparent move to boost a dull career, there also have been assumptions that his FB account remains logged-in in the "lost iPhone."

Teejay has yet to give a word on the issue.
