Addressing rumors that Maine Mendoza’s talent fee has been lowered to get more endorsements, her manager Rams David told PEP.ph, “Ang galunggong nga tumataas [ang presyo]—bakit ako magbababa ng presyo?”
The president of Triple A Management challenged rumormongers to call the Bureau of Internal Revenue to check Maine’s books. “She’s a good taxpayer. Open book naman lahat ng aming hinahawakang accounts at alam ‘yan ng BIR. Siyempre, hindi ko naman puwedeng sabihin kung magkano ang binabayaran niya taun-taon, but definitely, she’s one of the highest taxpayers.”
Rams said that Maine has a lot of endorsements because people trust her. “Hindi ba puwedeng maraming endorsements kasi marami ang nagtitiwala?” Rams said that Maine does not endorse products that she doesn’t believe in. “I believe [na] ang dami ng produktong hinahawakan niya ngayon is because she is a good endorser or influencer of such products.”
However, he said that they give consideration to long-time endorsements. “Mayroon tayong mga produkto na, siyempre, partners na natin at hindi tayo iniiwanan, love natin ang mga ‘yan. At para maganda ang relationship natin, of course, we also give consideration.”
