- The name “Xander Ford” was removed from Marlou Arizala
- This was announced by Star Image, the talent agency of the said actor
- Because of this, the search is now on for the next person who will use the moniker
The Star Image Artist Management, the agency that helmed the new career of Marlou Arizala, recently announced that it is looking for an individual who will banner the name “Xander Ford.”
KAMI learned that the much-talked-about announcement was made through a lengthy social media post on Monday, April 22.
The aforementioned agency revealed that it decided to give the name to another person who has good qualities and is deserving of the recognition.
Because of this, Marlou will no longer use the controversial moniker as the search for the next “Xander Ford” is already launched.
Star Image straightforwardly admitted that its talent really faced a lot of disciplinary issues, prompting his suspension since July 2018.
It even called Marlou a “stubborn” individual who cannot follow simple instructions and is consumed by temporary fame.
“Marlou Arizala was given the highest disciplinary action which is ‘indefinite suspension’ due to breach of contract [and violation of] the signed Memorandum of Agreement,” the company quipped.
“Today, April 22, 2019, STAR IMAGE Artist Management has decided to get back the name XANDER FORD from Marlou Arizala and to give to the rightful person bearing the good qualities that we are looking for an upcoming idol…” it added.
Despite the major changes, Star Image stressed that Marlou is still handled by the agency and all his bookings and engagements should be authorized by the management.
Should the former “Hasht5” member fail to follow what is written in his contract, his agency has the capability to file legal cases against him.
In a previous article by KAMI, the said talent management company finally exposed the truth about the controversies of Xander.
Marlou Arizala is a Filipino actor who was born on May 11, 1997. His new career as Xander Ford was launched in “Rated K” and he later on appeared in the sitcom, “Home Sweetie Home.”
