• Marlo Mortel admits getting indecent proposals 
  • The singer-actor also gave update to his mother’s condition

25-year-old singer-actor Marlo Mortel admits he’s been receiving indecent proposals; tempting him to give in so he could sustain his mother’s medical needs.

His 49-year-old mother is now undergoing weekly chemotherapy treatment at the National Kidney and Transplant Institute.

Marlo cannot deny his everyday struggle of providing enough money for his mother’s maintenance but accepting indecent proposal is definitely not his last resort. He said he wants to earn out of his talent and not from such indecent proposals.

During his interview with PEP, he also gave an update about his mother’s condition. He said that the weight of his mom has dropped to 40 kilograms and she had became so thin although she’s not bedridden.

He expressed his grief if something happens to his mom.

“Ayokong isipin. Hindi ko kaya, umaasa pa rin ako na gagaling siya,” he said [I don’t want to think about it. I can’t, I’m still hoping that she’ll get better.]

He also shared how his mother feels sorry for him because of his burden.

Nagso-sorry siya. Wala naman sa akin yun, basta gumaling lang siya. Ever since naman, kahit hindi pa siya na-diagnose, ‘yung pera ko direct sa kanila ko ibinibigay.” he added.

[She said sorry. It’s nothing for me, as long as she gets better. Ever since even when she was not yet diagnosed, I directly give my income to them.]
