MANILA — Is it Ethel Booba, or not?

That is the question circulating in the Philippines over Booba, a TV sensation who has apparently become the world’s next sex-tape celebrity.

Booba denies being in a sex video with boyfriend Alex Crisano, a professional basketball player, but one expert witness — Crisano’s ex-wife — says it is indeed the couple.

Becoming a star virtually overnight in the Philippines after winning a singing contest on “Sing-Galing,” Booba is co-host of reality TV show “Extra Challenge.”

The Booba tape, which is being marketed on a blog, includes footage of the TV star's likeness masturbating and then having sex with a man who appears to be Crisano.

Crisano’s ex-wife, Michelle, told the Manila Bulletin the man in the sex video is her ex-husband.

"I should know, he was my husband," Michelle Crisano said. "He’s a good father but a bad husband … a sexual pervert."

Booba, a former showgirl, appeared live on TV recently to refute allegations the woman in the video is she. But Booba still hasn’t convinced the country, as well as its paparazzi, which sees the sultry Filipina almost always in skimpy, sexy attire.

In recent months, Philippines regulators say Booba has broken numerous indecency regulations. And just last week the country’s Movie and Television Review and Classification Board reprimanded the Sunday talk show "The Buzz" for airing a "very explicit" version of the reported sex video of Booba and Crisano.

The video had long black strips across images to cover the woman's face and private parts.

“You could see that the woman in the video is touching herself," Philippines official Marissa Laguardia said. "They should not have aired too much of it.”

Booba also received a month-long suspension from regulators after they complained about "excessively sexy" outfits she wore on TV. She also was dinged on a guest appearance on "All-Star K" because “the neckline was too low and almost exposed her entire breast,” the government said.
