On January 16, The Umbrella Academy's David Castañeda (Diego Hargreeves) reveals to fans that he often answers calls from strangers, and it's his cousin to blame.


Check out David's Instagram post below:


"My cousin back in LA sometimes FaceTimes me while he’s at work. Most of the time when i answer i get a stranger on the other line."

"It’s not my cousin; it’s an actual stranger who he’s placed a bet with that we’re related. Why? Idk. I’d like to make a percentage off those bets. But i don’t. Cause he’s an a**hole."



It appears David's cousin is cheekily cashing in on David's fame! (Unfortunately, though, it doesn't seem like David is getting his fair share of the earnings.)



Meanwhile, how's the relationship between the Umbrella Academy siblings and the Sparrows?


It looks like The Umbrella Academy co-star Justin H. Min (Ben) has clearly chosen which siblings he favours! In a series of tweets, Justin threw shade at how his original siblings couldn't keep him alive. (Fans can read more here.)


And after it's revealed that Ben is now the new "Number Two", Justin tweeted at David, saying:

"@DavidCastanedaJ i’m number 2 now."


To which David hilariously responds:


"You’ll always be dead to me"

The Umbrella Academy season 3 is set to start filming in February.
