With countless projects and product endorsements coming his way, Kapamilya model-actor Tony Labrusca is becoming one of the most sought after personalities in Philippine show business today.

However, this does not spare him from getting involved in several controversies.

It can be recalled that Labrusca became a trending topic on social media earlier this year for allegedly shouting at an immigration officer at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport Terminal 1 after he was given the permission to stay in the country for only a month when he applied for a year-long visa.

Due to the incident, it was then claimed that Labrusca, who is an American citizen, has been allegedly working in the Philippines without a permit which caused the Intelligence Division of the Bureau of Immigration (BI) to push for his deportation.

In a recent interview with ABS-CBN News, Labrusca said that he was able to cope with the said issue by holding onto his faith.

“I learned that a lot of the times, we go through really hard time, and that’s the only time we pray. I think putting God first and foremost, before anything even happens is always the way to go,” he said.

He went on to say that whenever he faces personal or professional problems, he would always seek the help of God.

“Whenever I go through a problem, I always turn to God, and I always ask for his help and for his guidance talaga,” he said.

“Sometimes I really don’t know what to do, but I just have to take it day by day and tell Him, ‘It’s really in your hands, and I’ll just try to listen to the messages you send my way.’ I can only do my best with what I have,” he added.

Since the incident that happened in NAIA, Labrusca has issued a public apology and has filed a petition for recognition as a Filipino citizen.

He has will also no longer has any problems with his showbiz commitments after he was able to acquire a work permit from the BI.

Blessings and projects also did not stop coming his way as he is about to star in ABS-CBN’s latest crime-drama series “Sino Ang May Sala? Mea Culpa.”

He will also be appearing in upcoming films including “Ang Henerasyong Sumuko sa Love” and “Ang Babae Sa Septic Tank 3: The Real Untold Story of Josephine Bracken”
