Former child star Jiro Manio is currently undergoing rehabilitation in a facility in Antipolo City to address his dependence on illegal drugs.
The news was confirmed by Jiro’s father Andrew. “Daddy, bahala ka na muna sa anak ko, sa asawa ko. Kapag gumaling ako at nakabalik ako ng showbiz, hanap ulit tayo ng bahay sama sama ulit tayo doon,” Jiro reportedly said before he voluntarily entered rehab. The award-winning actor is the lead cast of the movie Magnifico, which was recently awarded one of the ten outstanding films of the decade by the Gawad Urian.
