Filipino basketball player Kobe Paras took to Twitter to explain that the decisions he make for his life are his own.
In a post last Tuesday, June 26, he said, "I control my life. Not my mom. Not my dad. I do."
He added, "Everything I do is my decision and my choice. I don’t want to hear anymore fake news that my dad/mom chooses, controls, tells me what to do or say. Because this is my life and I live in a circle of consequences that I made."
Kobe studies and plays for college basketball in the US.

Last May, Kobe also tweeted about him being judged by other people.
Kobe is a son to retired PBA player and actor Benjie Paras, and actress Jackie Forster. The two split in the early 2000s.
Five years ago, Benjie, Jackie, Kobe's brother Andre Paras had a public family feud, which caused a gap between them. But last May, Jackie shared the good news that she has finally reconciliated with her sons.
