Sarah Lahbati Reportedly Comes Home To Cebu With Newborn BabyRumors about Sarah Lahbati allegedly conceiving courtesy of boyfriend Richard Gutierrez continue to flourish. As time goes on, more speculations surface, making talks about the possibility get louder and louder by the day. Now another speculation is arising, this one proving to be more interesting than the rest.
According to unfounded reports, the controversial Kapuso young actress has already returned home. Rogue showbiz probers think she could have embarked on a KLM flight from Europe to the Philippines, via Mactan International Airport, which is based in Cebu.
To add interest to that speculation, rumors circulate that Lahbati did not come home alone. She reportedly gave birth in Switzerland and has decided to come home with the baby. In another version of the wild rumor, she is about to give birth this month and decided to do so in Cebu, where she could be with her boyfriend in time for her delivery.
How it started
It can be recalled that when Lahbati decided to take a break from showbiz and return to Switzerland in January, she was taping for the GMA-7 primetime series ‘Indio.’ Her decision was so sudden that significant changes had to be made to the plot of the series. Many showbiz insiders were also shocked why she had to do it abruptly. According to some reports, Lahbati was not comfortable showing off skin especially in her belly area, which was reportedly getting noticeably bigger then. She also refused to be carried on a harness for some important fight scenes.
Lahbati drew controversy when she decided to temporarily quit showbiz, citing her frustration with GMA-7 as her reason. Through her Twitter account, she accused Annette Gozon Abrogar (daughter of GMA-7 President Felipe Gozon) of forcing her to sign a network co-management contract that would deduct higher and additional commission from her talent fees. Consequently, Gozon-Abrogar filed a libel suit against her.
Richard in action
Gutierrez flew to Switzerland last month after his latest GMA-7 primetime series ‘Love and Lies’ ended. He came back to help promote his movie with Marian Rivera ‘My Lady Boss,’ which opens on theaters on July 3. Upon his return, Gutierrez announced that he would take a year-long break from showbiz to study filmmaking in Switzerland. He also opted not to renew his network contract with GMA-7.
Last week, Gutierrez disclosed that his plans have changed because he would now pursue studies in Bigfoot Academy in Cebu. He also told the showbiz press that his girlfriend Lahbati would come home soon to face all the controversies that hound her. Gutierrez hinted that he prefers not to take any project commitment for the next several months.
Solving a puzzle
Showbiz analysts are putting pieces of the puzzle together to create a clearer picture of the never ending rumors. Aside from Gutierrez’s surprising actions lately, some of his family members’ gestures may also suggest some clues. First, a few weeks ago, Ruffa disclosed that if ever the rumors about Lahbati’s pregnancy are true, the family would be happy to welcome a new member.
Second, Anabelle Rama is noticeably less visible these days. Many showbiz insiders are suspicious about why Rama decided to stay in Cebu even after losing in her political bid in the province. They take note that Rama should be staying in Manila by now, where her presence is badly needed by her showbiz talents. Could it be that Rama is now busy personally attending to her new role as grandmother to her alleged grandchild with favorite son Richard?
