In an Instagram post on Monday, January 21, Clint shared a then-and-now topless photo, which came with his explanation on why he left the ASAP boy group.

Clint wrote in the caption, "Just to put this topic finally to rest! WHY did I leave ASAP Coverboys?

"The left picture is from when I was part of the group a year ago and the picture on the right is only 3 weeks later AFTER leaving them! I looked like a shipwreck survivor."

Back then, he had two business startups, which demanded much of his time and focus.

Aside from that, Clint was juggling his modelling and acting career, along with his ASAP stint.

Before joining ASAP, Clint was also a part of Erich Gonzales and Daniel Matsunaga's now defunct daytime series, Be My Lady.

Clint continued, "BUT on TOP of that of course I was managing a modelling and great acting career that required me to give 3-4 days a week to ASAP Coverboys and working out daily since you are also expected to be fit on TV even if you feel close to dying haha.

"However I loved it! We grow from struggle and we can get more AGGRESSIVE when faced by it! Gets me excited! You can only truly know from experience!

"But drive can be unchecked sometimes and my body was falling apart eventually even though my mind was just getting warm! Still human.

"So I simply chose my business over ASAP. That's the whole story! ABS-CBN was phenomenal to me!"

Clint, who is also known as the boyfriend of Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray, now appears in GMA-7's Unang Hirit.

Just to put this topic finally to rest!🧟 WHY did I leave ASAP Coverboys?🙇 The left picture is from when I was part of the group a year ago and the picture on the right is only 3 weeks later AFTER leaving them! I looked like a shipwreck survivor 😂 During that time I had 2 business startups, interviewed 50+ potential employees, hired a hand full, fired a hand full, killed a ton of paperwork, worked on getting my fleet of vehicles into tip top condition, had people "misplace" money and car parts and then disappear, got involved in a car crash, some wouldn’t show up for work or I woke them up on location after snoozing, raised funds when time was running out, monitored ALL my jobs in real time, had my cell phone on 24/7, answered calls every few min regardless of time or being asleep, would work 20+ hours a day, traveled up to 10 hours a day, napped in the car or on my desk, endured banks not working and me then having to sprint to the next money transfer to pay people on time, calculated all financial aspects of the businesses or deals or double checked them constantly, trained new employees, did the own company bookings as well because NOBODY will work as hard as yourself, tested my new products, negotiated with clients, looked for and found new clients, learned my businesses in general regardless of silly advice, encountered corrupt government officials, payed people for services that weren’t fulfilled, had no time left to cook or eat much and had to correct accountants for wrongfully filing taxes. The usual hustle of business ventures 😁 BUT on TOP of that of course I was managing a modelling and great acting career that required me to give 3-4 days a week to ASAP Coverboys and working out daily since you are also expected to be fit on TV even if you feel close to dying haha. However I loved it! We grow from struggle and we can get more AGGRESSIVE when faced by it! Gets me excited! You can only truly know from experience! But drive can be unchecked sometimed and my body was falling apart eventually even though my mind was just getting warm! Still human 😎 So I simply chose my business over ASAP. That’s the whole story! 🧘 ABS-CBN was phenomenal to me! 😘
