Contrary to reports, actor John Regala did not suffer a heart attack.
It may be recalled that a viral photo of the actor by a certain Bhadloy Lopez featured him sprawled in the steps of a building.
In an interview with Kapuso Mo Jessica Soho on Sunday, the actor himself clarified that he fainted at a supermarket in Cavite due to extreme heat.
“Nangangatog ‘yung tuhod ko eh, biglang nawalan at nag-pass out talaga ako, ” said John.
“Hindi ako na-stroke at hindi po ako inatake sa puso, malakas po ako. Katunayan eh malakas na malakas pa ako at kaya ko pa lumabas (sa pelikula),” He added.
The said interview gave one of the most acclaimed kontrabidas to meet and thank the person who helped him during the said incident.
“Akala ko wala ng nagmamahal sa akin. Akala ko nakalimutan na ako ng tao,” he said.
He likewise thanked his supporters who prayed for him when he passed out.
“Kaya minsan nade-depress ako dahil mahal na mahal ko mga taga-hanga ko. Ngayon ko napatunayan, hanggang ngayon pala ang pagmamahal pala ng tao ay nanatili pa din sa akin,” John ended.
