Actress-comedienne Ai-Ai Delas Alas has clarified that it is always the former child actor Jiro Manio’s choice whether he will be in the rehabilitation center or not.
On Instagram, Delas Alas posted a screenshot of Manio’s message to his doctor; telling her that he opts to stay in their house for a while.
“Good am po doc liz. Gusto ko lang po sabihin na ayoko po muna bumalik sa center and about sa advocacy it sounds good but i cant do that ng nagsstay sa rehab gusto ko magstay na po ako dito sa amin magrereport report nalang po ako sa center just in case i feel any of those cravings.. sarili ko po desisyon ito sana po marespeto natapos ko naman na po gusto ni ms ai siguro sa ngayon its time to move on and i will look on things in other ways and also taking good care of my family and maintain taking medicine,” he said.
[Good morning, Doc Liz. I would just like to tell you that I don’t want to go back to the center yet; and the advocacy it sounds good but I can’t do that while staying inside the rehab. I want to stay here in our home and will just report to the center in case I feel any of those cravings. This is my personal decision. I hope you would respect it. I’ve already finished what Ms. Ai wants, maybe it’s time to move on now. I will look at things in other ways and also take good care of my family and maintain taking medicine.]
Delas Alas said she posted such after finding out a blind item about her was published. Such blind item, she added, states that Manio had to leave the rehabilitation center because she has allegedly stopped paying for his treatment.
“Si Jiro paiba-iba ‘yan ng isip so minsan wala na lang ako magawa kung ‘di ipag-pray siya. ‘Yan ang text niya noon June 3,” she disclosed.
[Jiro changes his mind from time to time. Sometimes, I can’t do anything else but to pray for him. That was his text message last June 3.]
She further said that Manio is presently staying again at the rehabilitation center and that she’s still the one paying for it.
“Nandoon s’ya ulit sa rehab. Ako pa rin ang nagbabayad hanggang ngayon ng rehab niya,” she said.
In June 2015, Manio was seen wandering around Terminal 3 of the Ninoy Aquino International Airport. In July 2015, Delas Alas voluntarily offered her help to Manio and brought him to a rehabilitation center.
