Miss Universe 2018 winner Catriona Gray filed a complaint at the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) on July 21 against the person who uploaded photoshopped nude pictures of the model online.

As soon as the bogus pictures went viral across social media, Catriona Gray's lawyer Joji Alonso mentioned in a statement, "We want to inform the public that the photo is fake and digitally altered. We will likewise take legal action against those involved in the manufacture and publication of the said photo. We strongly denounce this vicious attempt to tarnish the good name of Ms. Gray. At a time when fake news is prevalent, we firmly urge the public to be discerning and critical of what they see and share on social media." This is not the first time the model was harassed, as malicious fake news against Gray had been doing the rounds on social media a week ago as well. Her boyfriend Sam Milby came to her defense immediately after. "I cannot simply stand by and allow other people to take control of a narrative that is not theirs to tell. Cat and I have chosen to keep our relationship mostly private. It was only until recently that we made an exception, to lend our voices to charitable causes," he wrote on Instagram.

"But that does not mean that there is truth to any of these false stories and fake news that people are creating to fill in the blanks. In fact, these wrongful accusations and defamatory lies are dangerous. Cat is one of the kindest souls I've ever known. She is always putting other people first, thinking of how to use her voice and talent to help other people in need. Her grace, dignity, and strength even in the midst of all these false accusations makes me admire and love her even more," he further added.

Catriona Gray is a Filipino-Australian model who was crowned Miss Universe 2018. She was earlier crowned Miss Universe Philippines 2018 and Miss World Philippines 2016.
