Is it true that Julia Barretto left ABS-CBN and Star Magic?
Actress Julia Barretto allegedly left ABS-CBN and its talent management company Star Magic and transferred to Viva Artists Agency.
Julia has been under the management of the Kapamilya network since she started her career in showbiz at a young age. She already did several projects under ABS-CBN and the companies affiliated to it.
However, a recent article by entertainment columnist Jun Lalin in Pilipino Star Ngayon stated that his source revealed that Julia is no longer under Star Magic.
It was said that the actress, who recently filed a case against Jay Sonza for alleging that she’s pregnant, already transferred to Viva Artists Agency. Because of this, it was also said that Julia Barretto turned down the series that she is supposed to do in the Kapamilya network.
Lalin said that a story conference was already held but the supposed lead actress did not join. It was said that the production team was surprised that Julia backed out.
A source of the columnist said, “May revision sa script. Mababago ang istorya. Nakapag-COVID-19 swab test na rin kasi sila at nakapag-quarantine na rin, kaya hindi na puwedeng i-delay pa.” However, Barbie Imperial will be the lead actress now, the source added.
Also included in the cast members are Tony Labrusca, Denise Laurel, and Sunshine Cruz. Lalin also shared that he asked one of the cast members if Julia Barretto already turned down the role.
“Naku, Jun, off the record. Confidential daw. Yes, wala na nga raw si Julia. Pero tuloy kami. Tuloy ang show. May changes lang na naganap,” the celebrity asked by Lalin said.
The said celebrity also said, “I heard she moved to Viva nga raw. She signed up with Viva na nga.” In line with this, the columnist asked someone from Viva to confirm if this is really true.
“Jun, alam mo naman dito sa Viva, secret pa ang lahat, pero I heard nga. Pinag-uusapan na dito, pero ayoko namang magtanong. Mahirap na,” a person working in Viva said.
The person added that the camp of Julia Barretto might be talking directly to the bosses of VAA.
