John Regala receives help from his co-celebrities.
It is after a post from a netizen became viral yesterday.
The delivery guy, named Carlo Marti Clariza, shared photos of the apparently ill John in an online post, showing the actor sitting on a street side bench with a face mask on. Clariza wrote that John asked for his assistance because the latter was dizzy and couldn’t find his nurse.
“I immediately asked watchmen and the police to help him. He is in the village of 183 in Pasay City….It’s just painful to see that one of the [movie] villains I used to admire is in that condition,” Clariza said.
In an interview with news program 24 Oras, John admitted that he was the man in the viral post.

He said that he was still grieving from the d34th of his mother, actress Ruby Regala, who passed away last year. He’s also in the midst of having domestic issues with his partner.
“Kung simpleng tao lang, hindi makakayanan ang ratsada ng problema na kinahaharap ko ngayon,” John quipped.
In a separate interview with radio station DZRH yesterday, John said he was suffering from liver cirrhosis, among many other illnesses. He added that he doesn’t have any family to rely on since the d34th of his mother and that all of his relatives have abandoned him.
“Medyo malala na ang aking liver cirrhosis pero hindi naman ako nainom ng alak ever since. Di ko alam baka sa fatty foods ko nakuha siguro,” the actor said.
Asked if he received help from his fellow actors, he mentioned former President Joseph Estrada and Rez Cortez.
And if there is one thing he is praying for, Regala said, he wishes to go back to work.
