Nadine Lustre mum on Careless CEO Jeffrey Oh’s deportation case
Nadine Lustre, who was previously under independent label Careless from 2018 to 2022, chose to keep silent about the deportation case of its CEO, Korean-American entrepreneur Jeffrey Oh.
In an interview at the sidelines of the FAMAS 2023 awards night, in which she bagged Best Actress award, Lustre was asked by reporters about her reaction to her former manager’s arrest and subsequent detention by the Bureau of Immigration.
“I think I’d rather not talk about that just because I’m not involved in it anymore, so I don’t want to comment on that anymore. But of course Jeff is… I’ve worked with him too. It’s very unfortunate that this is happening,” she said in the video which was uploaded on My Movie World’s official YouTube channel on Monday, Aug. 14.
The BI confirmed the detention of Oh earlier this month following his arrest in Makati last July 28 due to alleged engagement in “gainful employment” as he doesn’t have the required documents to put up a business in the Philippines. He was reportedly released on bail last Aug. 4.
Careless, however, has yet to issue a statement on the Korean-American businessman’s deportation case, as of this writing.
Oh is the business partner of Lustre’s ex-boyfriend James Reid in the entertainment label, and is currently the career manager of Liza Soberano.
The “Deleter” star confirmed her departure from Careless last December 2022, where she admitted that their “vision isn’t really aligned anymore.”
“I kind of want to do my own thing. They’re doing their own thing. Iba na rin ‘yung gusto kong gawin. The things I want to do and the things they want to do are very different things already,” she was quoted as saying. EDV
