Joey Mead's Friends Say That They've Been Aware All Along What Her Husband Ian King's Sexuality Really Is

THE ADMISSION OF Joey Mead’s husband, Ian Angelo King, 36 years old, that he’s actually a transwoman, no longer surprised their friends who say they’ve known it all along. Joey is a well known model and VJ. She also became a mentor and judge in “Asia’s Next Top Model”. She and Ian were married in 2011.

Ian is the older brother of Atticus King, ex-boyfriend of Iza Calzado and Bubbles Paraiso. Their family own the Victoria Court chain of hotels. Their dad is the well known Chinese-Filipino tycoon who died last year, July 5, 2015, when his private helicopter crashed in Batangas. It’s said that Ian just waited for their dad’s babang-luksa before he announced his being a transgender.

The feedback of netizens about his coming out of the closet is very positive for Ian, just like what happened in the case of Caitlin Jenner. And just like Caitlin and her wife, Joey accepts Ian’s decision and will stand by him. Ian says of her: “My rock and my number one supporter.” They will not separate and maintain their marital relationship as, just like Caitlin, Ian is not into having relationships with men. His brother Atticus accepts him warmly in his new name, Angelina Mead King, even calling him (or her) Ate Angie.
