BLESS THE CHILD: Whatever happened to child star Rhed Bustamante?

BLESS THE CHILD: Whatever happened to child star Rhed Bustamante?

  • Child star Rhed Bustamante admitted that she and her family have been struggling for the past two years.
  • She also said that she hasn’t gotten any offers after a string of successful projects in the past. 

You may remember child star Rhed Bustamante from television shows like ABS-CBN’s FlordeLiza and GMA’s Endless Love.

She was also a part of movies such as Seklusyon, The Amazing Praybeyt Benjamin, and Maria Leonora Teresa.

Her career, however, didn’t exactly take off as she recently shared her current situation in Rated K’s September 9 episode.

She admitted that she hasn’t gotten any offers for nearly two years. “Akala ko po kung mag aartista ka, marami pong mag-ooffer sayo. Pweo hindi po pala ganon.”

Her mother, Cecilyn Ibarra, admitted that they experienced having their electricity cut off and the landlord evicting them from their rented space.

“Ng ilaw po, naputulan po kami. Tapos nagalit po yung may-ari samin. Bakit ganon daw naputulan. Tapos umalis na raw kami.”

Rhed added,  “Pinapalayas kami kasi walang pang-bayad. Ngayon po nag hahanap kaagad kami ng malilipatan kasi mahirap naman pong ganon. Naghihintay po ako ng offer. Kapag po may pera pera po, ganon, makakahanap po kami. Pero pag wala, talagang naghahanap kami ng mas mura pa.”

They have also failed to pay two months worth of rent in the current apartment they are renting.

Their struggles didn’t end there as her father, Lemar Bustamante, has a lung disease, which made him stop working as a mechanic. Meanwhile, Rhed is suffering from a medical condition called Incontinentia Pigmenti, which is an uncommon sickness that affects the skin, hair, teeth, and the central nervous system.

After borrowing money, they have set up a small sari-sari store in Manila.

When asked about how she feels about their current situation, Rhed answered, “Mahirap po isipin kasi ganon po talaga ang buhay po tapos minsan po hindi ko na rin po alam kung anong gagawin para makatulong po ako sa pamilya ko. “

She hopes to stage a showbiz comeback to help her family with their financial problems.

“Wag po tayo mag-eexpect masyado kasi po masakit po pag hindi siya nangyari. Katulad po inexpect ko po na parang pag nag artista ka, okay lahat pero hindi po pala. Tsaka po syempre, lagi kang mag pray kay Lord.”
