Alessandra De Rossi clarified the statements she made about her financial situation after Lolit Solis questioned if there was truth to what she said.
The talent manager wondered how De Rossi could have only P18,000 to her name, as what the actress disclosed in a recent interview.
The “Through Night and Day” star got candid about how she has managed when money was tight in an interview on “Usapang Real Life” yesterday, Aug. 31.
The coronavirus pandemic has hit the entertainment industry hard and the actress admitted that she had no money coming in. At the same time, she has been spending on hospitalizations, like that of her father in Italy.
“‘Yung bank account ko right now is pabankrupt na (My bank account is going bankrupt),” she said. “I only had P18,000 in my account, let’s be… fair.”
She recalled that when it came to that point, she entrusted things to God and after two hours, she was received money.
“Mayroon pala akong unpaid na mga tinrabaho na nagbayad (I had unpaid [fees] from past work that paid up),” she said.
Solis reacted to De Rossi’s story on Instagram today, Sept. 1, expressing shock that the actress had only P18,000 in her bank account.
“Hindi kaya nagkamali, baka 180K pala, Salve? Kasi paano naman magiging 18K na lang ang pera ng isang Alex [De] Rossi na marami naman nagawang pelikula at [TV] series? Maliban na lang kung [nagkagasta] siya ng malaki at nasimot ang pera niya,” said the talent manager.
(Do you think she made a mistake, maybe it’s actually P180k, Salve? Because how can one Alex De Rossi have only P18k when she has done a lot of movies and TV series? Unless she spent big and her money was used up.)
De Rossi appeared to dispute Solit’s doubts on Twitter today as she said, “Classic din ako (I am classic too) you know. I will not get anything from lying.”
“Malalaki diff ng HAVE at HAD. But sige! Dun ako sa HAVE! Pagod [na ‘ko] saluhin lahat ng naoospital. HAVE! HAVE ang sinabi ko,” she said.
(There is a big difference between have and had. But sure! I’ll go with have! I am tired of covering for everyone who is hospitalized. Have! Have is what I said.)
“Sayang lang! [‘Di] nagets yung goodness of the message. Minsan kailangan natin makinig nang mabuti sa sinasabi ng iba bago tayo [magform] ng sariling opinion.”
(What a waste! The goodness of the message was not understood. Sometimes we need to listen well to what others say before forming our own opinion.)
Malalaki diff ng HAVE at HAD. But sige! Dun ako sa HAVE! Pagod nako saluhin lahat ng naoospital. HAVE! HAVE ang sinabi ko 🤭 Sayang lang! Di nagets yung goodness of the message. Minsan kailangan natin makinig nang mabuti sa sinasabi ng iba bago tayo mag form ng sariling opinion.

“Credibility ko yan (It’s my credibility). I don’t LIE and I’m always CANDID, because I won’t get anything from dishonesty,” she stressed.
“[Thirty-six] pa lang ako, pero alam ko na po yun since natututo akong magsalita,” she said, appearing to take inspiration from Solis’s hashtag about her age.
(I am only 36 but I have known that since I learned how to speak.)
She also said that she “can’t help” spending to help others. “I do what I can do while forgetting myself lagi (always).” /ra
