The singing sensation formerly known as Charice Pempengco has changed his name to Jake Zyrus and come out as a trans man, People reports. The Glee star deleted his old social media posts and then revised his Twitter and Instagram handles to reflect his new identity.
His first Instagram post as Jake Zyrus was a simple photo reading "thank you" with the caption, "from the bottom of my heart, thank you for the love and respect. I love you back and I'm sending peace to everyone." His first tweet read, "My first tweet as Jake. Overwhelmed. Saw all your love comments and I'm so happy. Finally. I love you, everyone and see you soon."
