Family of Diego Loyzaga keeps mum on his alleged suicide attempt

by | Entertainment

The mother of Diego Loyzaga, actress Teresa Loyzaga, remains silent about the rumors of her son’s alleged attempted suicide.

It was speculated that the Kapamilya star was the subject of a blind item which talked about a young actor who tried to take his own life.

TV5 reporter Laila Chikadora took to Facebook on November 5 to share the news about an unnamed young actor who was rushed to the hospital after he tried to commit suicide by slitting his neck and wrist.

The blind item reads: “Young actor of showbiz blood commits suicide. Slashes neck and wrists with a Swiss knife. He is in a hospital somewhere in QC now; conscious. Please don’t let your inner demons win. I will pray for you.”

PEP.ph then reported that during the last day of the wake of singer Rico J. Puno, people were talking about the attempted suicide of a young actor. The entertainment website said that some of their sources pertained to Kapamilya actor Diego Loyzaga.

According to the report, an unconfirmed news said that Loyzaga tried to take his own life on November 6 after he talked to someone over the phone.

The actor told the person he was talking to that he was feeling alright, but he allegedly harmed himself using a Swiss knife after the phone conversation.

Loyzaga’s companion inside the house immediately called paramedics to attend to the actor before rushing him to St. Luke’s Medical Center in Quezon City.

To confirm the news, PEP.ph tried to contact Loyzaga’s family member, including his mother who did not respond to any of their calls and messages.

Likewise, Loyzaga’s father, Cesar Montano, did not answer when PEP.ph tried to reach out to him.

The entertainment website also called Philippine Daily Inquirer columnist and Montano’s good friend Dolly Anne Carvajal for confirmation but she did not answer as well.

They were only able to get a response from Star Magic, the talent management that handles Loyzaga’s career.

Through public relations head Thess Gubi, the entertainment website was able to receive a text message that neither confirmed nor denied the rumors.

“Diego and family are doing fine. And are requesting for privacy. Thank you,” Gubi said.
