After a hurly-burly kindav whirly situation that JM DE GUZMAN got himself into, he is said to be released soon [like next month] from the rehabilitation facility he was cooped after having had a bad bout with hallucinatory substances. This was disclosed by his father in a casual talk and volunteered that his son is recovering fast and at the moment is cohesive and lucid. A great news but with strong implications that JM still has to tackle with his own devils in order for him to beautifully bounce back into entertainment circuit. He lost opportunities and hopefully regain better breaks once he is good for the going! Fresh up, JM!
- Jm De Guzman : Unfit to Play San Pedro Calungsod (aliwanavenue.com)
Promising hunk actor JM DE GUZMAN is OUT of the ‘SAN PEDRO CALUNGSOD: BATANG MARTIR’ project. In a formal effort, his father called Director Francis Villacorta informing the latter that his son is not in his right elements to essay the role of the Filipino saint. Earlier, JM signed the commitment letter submitted to the MMFF committee. Mr. de Guzman cited ‘health’ as JM’s main reason of withdrawal and they would not wish to risk production problems during the shoot if ever. Dismayed, Villacorta insists that he had always rooted for the actor to play the role but then, production has to commence the soonest to cope with the December festival’s deadline and they have to find the right payer to the role. Recently, JM DE GUZMAN filled the gossip circles with talks that he is hip-deep into substance addiction and that he had very few lucid moments to speak of.

For the longest time, Robin seemed to be in denial with the transvestism of his brother Rustom. His instagram followers had only positive thoughts on his acceptance and we should all too! But then, what he did not mention was BB’s ailment. There is no detail whatsoever with the infection that BB was afflicted with. Would you know, Ricky G.?
