PH celebs pour out love, support for Sarah Geronimo after Las Vegas concert breakdown
Celebrities came to pop princess Sarah Geronimo’s support after her recent breakdown during her concert in Las Vegas, Nevada last April 29.
While performing, Geronimo struggled in singing her hit “Forever’s Not Enough” and had to walk out of the stage at some point to compose herself. She also broke down in tears as she shared to the audience how hard it is to be “perfect,” and how she feels empty despite seemingly having it all.
After her breakdown, many in the entertainment industry took to social media to give comfort to Geronimo, first of which was boyfriend Matteo Guidicelli.
Guidicelli shared on April 30 via Instagram a picture of him and Geronimo walking down the beach while holding hands. He wrote, “Keep walking, I’ll always be beside you. No matter what. I love you my love. And I miss you.”
Apart from Guidicelli, stars like Enchong Dee, Marvin Augustin and singer-songwriters Paolo Valenciano and Sitti Navarro, among others, also offered their support.
“Sarah G’s feelings are so valid. Respect and admiration for this beautiful soul,” tweeted Dee.

“I just saw Sarah’s posted videos when she couldn’t sing anymore,” wrote Agustin on Twitter. “Lahat ng tao napapagod, ang importante ay binigay mo ang lahat mo hanggang sa puntong di mo na kaya. Mas nirespeto kita at ng lahat ng [mga] taong nagmamahal sa yo! Mabuhay ka Sarah!”
(Everyone gets tired. What’s important is you gave it your all, up to the point where you can’t anymore. I respect you more now, as does everyone who loves you. Long live, Sarah!)

Bossa nova singer Sitti Navarro, meanwhile, expressed that her heart breaks for Geronimo. Navarro hoped that Geronimo would be given the freedom to have a good long rest after the tour, to do things she wants with the people she likes.
My heart breaks for Sarah G 💔 I hope she’ll be able to have a good long break after her tour, doing the things she wants with the people she likes, and for her to be given the freedom to do so.

Veteran talent manager and host Lolit Solis herself shared on Instagram yesterday that she cried a bit after she found out about what happened to Geronimo. Solis pointed out the irony of Geronimo’s situation, being a star who seems to have it all, yet feeling empty. Solis also hoped that Geronimo’s feeling of emptiness does not turn into depression.
Cry me naman ako a little, Salve nang malaman ko ang nangyari kay Sarah Geronimo sa Las Vegas Salve. Kahit naman siguro sino apektado dun sa sinabi ni Sarah na I feel empty. Imagine nasa itaas ka ng iyong career, meron kang boyfriend, buo ang family support mo, how can you feel empty? Ibig sabihin, kahit ano pang tagumpay ang makuha ngayon ni Sarah wala nang halaga, hindi ito makakaligaya sa kanya. Kahit nandiyan na ang boyfriend niyang si Matteo, meron pa rin hole sa puso niya. What will complete Sarah? Her family – nandiyan din kasama niya si Mommy Divine sa tour , I heard they go to church together, iyon buong pamilya so spiritually may guidance at strength si Sarah. What else is missing? Sana hindi mauwi sa depression ang empty feeling ni Sarah. Sana spur of the moment emotional outburst lang ito. Kasi the worst part of depression is when you feel it while you’re on top, kung kelan ka successful , and no one can see a reason why you will feel lonely or empty. Ok na maka feel ka ng depression kung bigo ka or laos ka or wala kang pamilya or walang nagmamahal sa iyo. Ewan kung ano ang kulang , pero sa mga fans ni Sarah Geronimo , isama mo na siya sa mga dasal ninyo, pray that Sarah will completely feel happy , sure ako God will grant her wish kasi mabait siyang anak at kapatid. Be strong Sarah. Be happy. #instatalk #lolitkulit❤🙏🏻

(I hope this does not lead to depression, this emptiness Sarah feels. I hope this is just a spur-of-the-moment emotional outburst. Because the worst part of depression is when you feel it while you’re on top, when you are successful, and no one can see a reason why you will feel lonely or empty.)
Meanwhile, Guidicelli assured people that Geronimo is now doing okay. In an interview with him and Shaina Magdayao which was shared by StarsPhotog Vids on YouTube yesterday, May 1, Guidicelli said that everything’s fine and Geronimo was just tired.
“Everything’s fine, everything’s fine, she’s just tired,” assured Guidicelli. “Tuloy tuloy ‘yung (It’s a non-stop) tour, she has a tour kasi in America… I think she came from another state into Las Vegas ng walang tulog (without sleep) and she did the show, and you know, her 15-year show is a very emotionally jam-packed show from the start… and she just got emotional there, but she’s fine, everything’s good.” JB
