‘Ang Tanging Ina’ lead actress Ai-Ai Delas Alas sent former co-star Jiro Manio to a private facility for rehabilitation, as confirmed by Manio’s stepfather Andrew yesterday, July 14, in an interview with TV Patrol.
According to Andrew, they can now speak to Jiro through the help of the psychiatrist.
Moreover, the firstborn in the film Marvin Agustin immediately called Ai-Ai and offered all possible help for his former on-screen brother.
“Hinintay lang naming ‘yung chance na hindi siya (Jiro) mabibigla. Gusto namin siyang puntahan at kausapin, pero ayaw naman namin siyang guluhin,
” Agustin explained.
On the other hand, Direk Wenn Deramas who discovered the former child star said in an interview with "TV Patrol," “Naniniwala pa rin akong childhood ang foundation ng pagkatao nating lahat. So kung maganda ang childhood, maganda ang paglaki. ‘Yun ata ang nalimutan ng mga taong nakasama niya dahil maaga rin siyang pinagtrabaho at hindi rin naipaliwanag sa kanya na hindi naman niya kailangan magtrabaho (sa murang edad)
It can be remembered that the multi-awarded child actor was found roaming around Terminal 3 of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport last June 30.
This is the second time the “Magnifico” lead star has entered rehab after he volunteered and was sent by his former girlfriend Reijine in 2011.
