Claudine Barretto transfers to new management
Optimum Star Claudine Barretto is now under new talent management and it arises speculations that it might be because of her “tampo” with Viva.
Claudine is no doubt one of the most bankable actresses in the Philippine entertainment industry. From her childhood years, she has done several TV and movie projects that defined her as an actress.
She earned the moniker Optimum Star due to how she portrayed various roles in her projects. Previously, she was under the management of Star Magic. Then, she transferred to Viva Artists Agency.
Based on the article by entertainment columnist Jun Lalin in Pang-Masa, Claudine Barretto has recently transferred to new management. Lalin shared that he saw celebrity lawyer Atty. Ferdinand Topacio at the Florabel restaurant in Estancia Mall in Pasig City.
On that same day, Arnold Vegafria or ALV arrived also in the restaurant as he has a meeting with his lawyer regarding a contract. Then, Atty. Topacio and ALV talked to each other.
A few moments later, the two went to the table of Lalin and told him that someone on ALV’s phone wanted to talk to him. The columnist said hello and found out that it was Claudine Barretto on the other line.
“You’re back, I missed you. Magkita-kita tayo nina Atty. Topacio and ALV. Let’s have lunch,” the actress said. After Lalin talked to the Optimum star, ALV revealed that he is now managing the actress.
The columnist said that he felt “panghihinayang” that he was not able to ask the reason why Claudine transferred to new management from Viva. Then, Lalin raised a question if this decision of the actress was due to her alleged “tampo” with VAA.
The said “tampo” is due to the canceled movie that Claudine Barretto was supposed to do.
