It’s official. Celebrated Kapuso GMA7 star Marian Rivera, most famous for her TV title role Marimar, is dissolving her contract with Popoy Caritativo, her manager for seven years. She announced the news to the press last April 26 at the Luxent Hotel, Quezon City.
Marian is now joining All Access to Artists (AAA), the talent management team owned by Tony Tuviera. She explained the decision to change management was something she thought about for a long time and not a spur-of-the-moment decision. When she finally gathered courage to let Popoy know she wants to leave him as talent manager, she wrote a letter to him, one that surprised not only Popoy but also the entertainment press.
When asked why she didn’t talk to him face to face, Marian said, “Hindi ko kaya at mahihirapan ako. Nagpapasalamat na lang ako at sinabi niyang ‘Nabasa ko ang sulat mo, at kung yun ang gusto mo, re-respetuhin ko ang desisyon mo.’”
She adds that there is no need to divulge whatever reasons she has against her old talent manager. “Napaka-unfair ko naman kung sasabihin ko pa yung mga side ni Popoy. Nirerespeto ko siya at bali-baliktarin nyo man ang mundo, malaki ang pasasalamat ko kay Popoy sa lahat ng naitulong niya sa akin. Never akong magsasalita ng di maganda tungkol sa kanya dahil mabait sa akin yung tao,” Marian remarks.
