The mother of former child actor CJ Ramos could not contain her emotions after knowing that her son was arrested in relation to illegal drugs.
KAMI learned that Connie Ocampo, the mother of the former child star, rushed to Caloocan City Police Station on August 8 to help her son.
In an interview with PEP.ph, Connie shared how she felt after knowing that her son was arrested in a drug buy-bust operation.
“Mamamatay-matay ako kasi hindi sumasagot ng cellphone. Kinabukasan, umaga na, magpapa-blotter na sana kami nung malaman naming nahuli,” she said.
Connie also expressed her desire for her son to undergo rehabilitation and said that CJ is willing to back out from using illegal drugs if granted second chance away from the crossbar.
“Makikita niyo naman si CJ, hindi naman talaga siya talamak na adik na adik. Gusto ko rin siya ma-rehab, at talagang willing din siya at gusto niyang magbago for good,” she explained.
“Napakatalino niyang anak ko, napakabait, magalang. Hindi ko lang alam, natiyempuhan lang, pero siguro talagang turning point na ito na talagang magbago siya. Nangako na siya,” she added.
Connie and her son believed that they will get through of this trouble because “they have faith in God.”
“Wrong timing lang siguro lahat. Alam ko matatapos rin naman siguro lahat ito. Alam ko naman dahil I have faith in God talaga, at saka si CJ nagpi-pray din siya at alam kong malalagpasan namin ito,” the mother said.
Despite being aware that CJ was treated well inside the jail, Connie could still not avoid worrying about her son and said that she was really stressed by how things turned out for them.
“Okay naman, mababait naman yung trato sa kanya, mababait yung mga pulis. Kaya lang kung minsan, hindi mo maiaalis na ma-stress ako,” she said.
"Nanay ako, natatakot ako. Masakit na nga buong katawan ko kakaisip,” Connie added.
In a recent article by KAMI, Cj was able to file a bail and get out of prison nine days after the arrest. His family was allowed to pay PHP 200,000 because the illegal drug confiscated from the former child actor was just .7 grams.
CJ is known for starring in Filipino films such as Ang TV Movie: The Adarna Adventure and Tanging Yaman where he won FAMAS Award for Best Child Actor in 2001.
