- Talent Manager Irene Minor ran off after scamming two investors
- ABS-CBN gave their statements against the talent manager, Irene Mariano Minor
Recently, the show FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano was dragged into a controversy because of complaints and allegations from two investors against a talent agency owned by a certain Irene Mariano Minor who claimed to be the talent supplier of the show.
The investors had put in 500,000 pesos with the talent agency last December 2018. But after Minor no longer appeared to the investors since April, they enlisted the help of Ben Tulfo’s show BITAG to track her down.
It was discovered that the supposed talent manager Minor didn’t really have any connections with the show and that it was not and this wasn’t the only time that someone had filed a complaint against her.
“Nakikipagtrabaho lamang ang ABS-CBN sa mga accredited talent supplier para sa mga pangangailangan ng kanilang mga programa. Si Irene Minor ay hindi kabilang sa mga nasabing talent supplier at wala siyang kontrata sa ABS-CBN.”
“Napag-alaman ng ABS-CBN na kinuha ng isa sa aming mga akreditadong talent supplier, ang M.I.C. Media Entertainment Agency, ang serbisyo ni Bb. Minor nang hindi pinaalam sa amin, bagay na labag sa kasunduan nila ng ABS-CBN.”
Minor claimed that she would pay the professional fees of her talents first since FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano was such a big show it would take some time to get them paid. This is where she got the investors to invest.
Another complaint was that Minor did not arrange for the necessary paperwork beforehand when the payment is needed already.
According to Minor’s caretaker who was also included in the complaint, Minor was really using the name of ABS-CBN to scam people. Minor is still nowhere to be found.
