Piolo Pascual is asking P1-Billion talent fee from ABC 5?

There was a rumor that the hunk Piolo Pascual was offered by ABC 5 for the right price. This rumor has been lurking for awhile but Piolo was denying it. Lately the rumor said that he asked for a P1-billion talent fee which is good for three years. Since it is very high the station decided not to continue the contract. When Piolo was asked about this he just laugh and said that it is not true.

Here is the complete news about this article from ABS-CBN:

MANILA, Philippines – Are there truth to rumors that Piolo Pascual had demanded a whopping P1-billion talent fee from TV5 network?

Rumors also have it that Pascual’s asking price was too big for a 3-year contract that TV5 executives decided not to pursue the hunk actor anymore.

When told about the swirling rumors during a press conference for his Valentine concert, dubbed "Piolo meets the Maestro, Ryan Cayabyab," even Piolo Pascual was at a loss for words.

"Wow, sarap namang pakinggan noon. Sana totoo, wow. Pangarap lang po yon, bakit naman ganoon? Sobra naman yon," Pascual told

Will he leave his home network, ABS-CBN, if TV5 offers him P1 billion?

"Siyempre tao lang ako, pero sabi sa Bible kasi choose honor rather than riches. So, you have to protect your name before you be blinded by material stuff,” he replied. "I'm not closing my door pero epokrito naman ako kung sasabihin ko na ito na ako. I mean you know, we all want to spread our wings and we want to maximize whatever talents we are given."

But he quickly added: "Masaya pa ako. Wala po akong problema [sa ABS-CBN]."

Pascual is clueless how the issue of him transferring to another network started. He also belied reports that he already had a meeting with TV5 executives.

Switching networks is far from his mind since he is contented being a Kapamilya star, Pascual maintained. He added that he is satisfied and it shows in his “attitude toward work.”

He said he is also focusing more on how to further improve his craft “because [ABS-CBN has] been so nice to me and been so gracious.”

The actor stressed that he and ABS-CBN have a "good partnership." In fact, Pascual is set to renew his contract with ABS-CBN this February.

After his hit television series “Noah,” Pascual is lined up to do a movie with young actress Kim Chiu.

His Valentine concert with Cayabyab, meantime, will be held at the Philippine International Convention Center's Plenary Hall on February 14 at 8 p.m.

Iñigo, KC

Last Sunday, Piolo Pascual got a big surprise from his son Iñigo. As a birthday gift, Iñigo prepared a surprise video song number that was aired on musical variety show “ASAP.”

Since Iñigo's appearance on television, calls for him to join show business were renewed.

But if he has his way, Piolo Pascual said he will not allow his 13-year-old son to enter showbiz because he wants him to focus on his studies first.

“I was really caught unaware, it was really a surprise. They are all aware I’m trying to keep him from showbiz because nag-aaral ‘yong bata. Ayokong ma-divert ‘yong attention niya,” he said.

Piolo Pascual also reacted to reports that of Black Eyed Peas gave KC Concepcion, his rumored girlfriend, a Tiffany bracelet as a Christmas gift.

For the actor, it was not a big deal. “Even before they met up, she told me they were having dinner and he was inviting her to fly to the States. Binigay ko pa rin naman sa kanya ang choice,” he said.

When asked if he has met apl in person, he said: “Nakita ko lang sa ‘ASAP.’ Tiningnan ko from head to toe. Joke! (Laughs).” –With Marie Lozano, ABS-CBN News
