Arnold Clavio on Thursday dispelled death rumors hounding fellow Kapuso broadcaster Mike Enriquez following his prolonged absence from GMA news program “24 Oras,” as well as in their radio program on dzBB, “Saksi sa Dobol B”.

The rumors made rounds on social media on Thursday, Nov. 10, after veteran actress Lollie Mara and singer Richard Merk sent their condolences over Enriquez’s supposed passing in now-deleted Facebook posts. After removing the post, Mara apologized and stated that her basis was a false report from years ago which resurfaced online.


She likewise addressed Enriquez in her post. “Please forgive me, Mike. Sabes que te quiero mucho mi amor (You know that I love you very much).”


In dismissing the reports, Clavio said that he was able to talk to “Ama,” referring to Enriquez, who he said was chirpy and very much alive during their conversation.

“Mga minamahal, nakausap ko po si Ama, Mr. Mike Enriquez. Buhay na buhay at ang kanyang mensahe: ‘Fake news!'” Clavio said in his Facebook post. (My beloved, I already talked to Father, Mr. Mike Enriquez. He is very much alive and his message is: “Fake news!”)
