He left rehab in 2016.
A Mother’s Love
Ai Ai Delas Alas, who is considered as his mother in showbiz industry, shared her sentiments on the latest controversy involving the actor. She posted a video clip on her Instagram account.
“Parang napagod na ako. Ilang days after na isumbong sa akin ‘yun nagsabi na siya na, ‘Mama lalabas na ako’ so ako wala na… Nawalan na ako ng pag-asa na wala na, parang hindi na magbabago si Jiro.”
“Matanda na siya, Hindi naman na siya 17 or menor de edad, so sabi ko siguro tama na ‘yung nagawa ko para sa kaniya na nagpaalam siya, binlock ko na siya, hindi ko na siya pinansin noong sinabi niya na uuwi na siya.”
At the latter part of the video, Ai Ai asked everyone to pray for Manio’s safety and recovery.
“Ako po ay ang pinakamagagawa ko ngayon ay magdasal at hinihingi ko rin po na ipagdasal natin siya. Malinawan ang isip niya na kung ano man ang mangyari sa kaniya ngayon, sana matuto siya sa lahat lahat ng pinagdaanan niya sa buhay niya.”
