James Reid made the rounds online after he touched a guy’s nipple at a beach photo.
In October 2022, Reid went on a quick beach getaway along with his Careless Music team. Actress Liza Soberano, a talent under Reid’s music label, also joined the vacation.
The chief executive officer of Careless Music, Jeffrey Oh, also joined the trip to Boracay.
In Oh’s Instagram post on October 4, he shared pictures of their Boracay trip.
One of the photos is a topless picture with Reid where the actor was seen playfully touching Oh’s nipple.

Netizens then poked fun at Reid and suspected the actor might be gay, while others said he was playing around.
On the other hand, James Reid got also accused of being gay back in May 2022 when a photo of him kissing a guy on the cheeks went viral.
In an exclusive interview with the actor on July 3, he simply laughed off the issue regarding his sexuality.
“It’s the same old stuff. People like to bring things out of context and make it look like something else. I thought it was hilarious,” he said.
