Liza Soberano on Ogie Diaz: ‘I don’t understand why he chooses to fight me’

-

LIZA Soberano turned emotional talking about what now seems to be a strained relationsh­ip with her former talent manager, Ogie Diaz.

Soberano, in an exclusive interview with Boy Abunda, said she is hurt by what Diaz has been saying i n public, adding she does not understand “why he is choosing to fight me.”

“He’s saying so many t hings t hat are untrue, like for the past two years,

hindi po siya kumukuha ng

commission. It makes me sound even more ungrateful

to the people na hindi naman nakakaalam kung ano ‘ yung nangyayari sa loob,” she said.

“He’ s calling me ungrateful when he knows very well how grateful I was to ABS- CBN. Kahit wala akong kontrata sa kanila,

I was doing so much work for them. I was supporting them. Nung nag- shut down ‘ yung ABS- CBN, I was one of the artists that rallied alongside them because I didn’t think it was fair na mangyari ‘ yun sa lahat ng employees nil ana nakakasama ko sa taping every day... He knew how thankful and grateful I was to everyone.”

Sober a no said Di az himself had described her as obedient so it puzzles her why he is “trying to say things to make people turn against me.”

Regarding the commission issue, Soberano alleged Diaz’s statements are inaccurate.

“It’ s not right. That’s incorrect[ na hindi na si ya na g co-col le ctng commission]. It actually hurts me that he’s making up those lies about me because I feel like he’s trying to make it seem like I wasn’t profitable in the past two years that we were working together, when he knows the truth, he knows my pains, he knows the things that I felt were mishandled and stuff like that.”

Saying it is unfair for her, Soberano said she feels like Diaz is trying to tarnish her name.

“I don’t want to bring this up but he still gets commission­s from some of the endorsemen­ts of mine that fell under the time that I was under contract with him, even though he has no more obligation­s... He’s going to get another [ paycheck] this week.”

Soberano said she feels bad that things have turned out this way for her and Diaz because they parted ways in good t erms.

Amid all the brouhaha, Soberano doesn’t regret anything for trying to make space for growth.
