Julia Barretto's Leading Man Kiko Estrada Suddenly Dumps Manager To Be With Star Magic

SOMEONE told us one of Julia Barretto’s leading men, Kiko Estrada, in her launching show, “Mira Bella”, is currently having problems because of his decision to be now managed by Star Magic. Kiko (love son of Gary Estrada and Cheska Diaz) was originally managed by Arnold Vegafria who brought him to GMA-7 and introduced him in “Tween Hearts”. Then Arnold took him to ABS-CBN and he was given a break as part of the cast of “Anna Liza”.

Kiko’s biggest break was when he was chosen to be one of the leading men of Julia in “Mira Bella”. At this point, Star Magic talked to Kiko and his Mommy Cheska, saying they want to manage him, but he had to leave Arnold’s stable. The problem is that Kiko has not signed a formal contract with Arnold, so it’s so easy for him to dump him now that Star Magic wants to handle him solo.

We heard Arnold is now so sad about what happened and won’t take things sitting down. But we’re also told Star Magic doesn’t exactly like him because when he chose to manage their former stars, like John Prats, Yia Villania and Nikki Gil, he didn’t even bother to inquire from Star Magic about them. “Sana man lang, bumusina siya noon para hindi siya na-bad shot sa Star Magic,” someone says.
