Fans React To ERICKA VILLONGCO Accusing NADINE LUSTRE Of Being A "Copycat"!
Ericka Villongco (half of sister duo Krissy & Ericka) set the social media world ablaze last month for her comments about a specific someone whom she referred to as a "copycat."
bitch i’m gleaming ✨ these rumors i’ve been hearing are annoying affff, hate to bring up this 💩 again but its still not okay to completely copy someone else's style. its absolutely fine to be inspired by something, but when you obviously replicate everything & try to change yourself you've gone too far. when you copy an art style you pretend to have, you lose yourself
Turns out the girl she was referring to was no other than Nadine Lustre, the current girlfriend of her ex-beau James Reid.
The "12:51" singer recently did an e-mail interview with PEP.ph where she further talked about the issue. "I'm sorry to say, I don't regret calling Nadine a copycat," Ericka said.
"My fans were tagging me in multiple photos comparing the same top I wore months back, the same caption, her lip fillers and several other aesthetic resemblances."
She continued by adding, "I remember thinking to myself 'Wow, this girl can get any bag she wants, but she bought the same YSL I had?'"
"It's not my character to ruin someone's reputation over a mere guess or feeling but, I'm sorry to say, I don't regret calling Nadine a copycat."
Nadine previously denied Ericka's accusations, saying her style is heavily influenced by Hollywood celebrities. "I think I have my own individuality naman so I don't see anything na parang... parang kokopyahin ko," the Ulan star said.
Fans quickly came to Nadz's defense and aired their reactions on Twitter.

Ericka Villongco lost on elections after using James Reid for promo, made fake twitter to hate, plagarized, stole photos to post on IG pretending it's her & is jobless.— Alphina (@maleedus) March 13, 2019
And a multimillionaire self-made woman by the name of Nadine Lustre wants to imitate her? Bitch, sit down.
Lastly, Ericka Villongco's claims that Nadine Lustre is copying her is nothing but an assumption with a hint of insecurity. This though is a proof who really reeks fakeness.— Alphina (@maleedus) March 13, 2019
