JM de Guzman reaches out to fans about his struggles


In a social media post Saturday, November 14, actor JM de Guzman reached out to fans and spoke up about his ongoing struggles.

In a video he posted on Instagram, JM revealed some details about his personal ordeals, including a battle with depression. The actor also apologized for his action and asked fans not to blame his former girlfriend, actress Jessy Mendiola nor ABS-CBN and his “All of Me” show family.

On November 5, Jessy confirmed that she and JM have broken up for the second time. JM is rumored to be showing signs of drug and alcohol relapse. They were together for two years before they first broke up in 2013. They got back together in April after JM made a showbiz comeback.

In a previous television interview, JM admitted that he went to rehab for a drug problem. It was one of the reasons why he and Jessy broke up the first time. He was gone from showbiz for over a year. In 2014 he staged his major television comeback via ABS-CBN’s new afternoon teleserye “All of Me.” The show also features Yen Santos and Albert Martinez.

JM started his career as a child star and later on starred in independent films and stage plays.
