In an attempt to clear the latest issue hounding their professional relationship, young actress Angel Locsin clarified that manager Becky Aguila is still very much in command of everything.
Rumor has it that there's tension between Angel and Becky brought about by certain contractual discrepancies recently discovered by the Lobo lead star. As a result, the two are said to be not communicating, to the extent that the young actress is the one directly dealing with producers and other representatives concerning potential projects.
"Nagtataka ko bakit ang dami-daming lumalabas na, hindi naman ako nagsasalita tungkol doon," said Angel in a taped interview aired yesterday, February 10, on The Buzz.
"Tapos sana kung kanino man nanggaling ‘yon, huwag na lang sanang ungkatin kasi wala naman talaga, e," she added in defense of her beleaguered manager.
The system, according to Angel, remains normal with Becky taking care of business and everything that has to do with negotiations.
As Angel politely said, "Imposibleng dumiretso naman ako sa mga contracts ko, di ba? Kasi artista lang po ako, hindi ko naman kaya i-manage ‘yong sarili ko."
Relationship between Angel and Becky has always been marred with intrigues ever since Angel's controversial transfer to ABS-CBN from GMA-7. Talks are abundant that the former prize talent of the Kapuso Network does not agree with Becky's decision for them to jump ship. The move allegedly drove a wedge between the two—consequently straining communication lines.
Angel admitted that her relationship with Becky is not ideal. However, she downplayed the degree of their conflict, saying, "Kami ni Tita Becky, di ba, para kaming mag-boyfriend-girlfriend? Ang plastic ko naman kung sasabihin kong perfect ‘yong relationship namin. Nag-aaway din kami ni Tita Becky, pero siya pa rin naman ang manager ko."
