Claudine and Rico Yan love team rose to fame during the 90’s. They both starred in the movie Got To Believe and in the TV show Mula sa Puso, among others. Their onscreen partnership led to real life romance.
Rico died of cardiac arrest due to acute hemorrhagic pancreatitis on March 29, 2002, weeks after they celebrated their fourth anniversary as a couple. Rumors were also circulating then that the two already broke up before the actor’s death.
Got To Believe, which was Rico’s last film, was still showing in theaters when Rico passed away. A portion of the proceeds from the ticket sales of the movie were given to the Rico Yan Youth Foundation.
