Liza Soberano's Aunt Allegedly takes 20% Commission: Is It Justified?

Actress Liza Soberano is no stranger to the limelight, having appeared in numerous television shows, movies, and commercials. However, according to Liza herself, her success came with a price. Specifically, a whopping 60% commission to Liza Soberano’s whole management team; with a 20% commission paid to her aunt and former road manager/personal assistant, Joni Lyn Castillo. This news has sparked controversy and debate among netizens, with many questioning the fairness and ethics of such an arrangement.

Liza’s previous management team allegedly took 60% of her earnings

In a bombshell interview with TV host Boy Abunda, Liza Soberano set the record straight about the gossip mill swirling around her former manager, Ogie Diaz. But what really got people buzzing were the jaw-dropping details of Liza’s revelation.

According to Liza, Ogie was taking home 30% commission, while her aunt Joni was pocketing 20% for her roles as Road Manager and Personal Assistant (PA). And that’s not all! Star Magic was also taking another 10%. All in all, Liza Soberano was left with a measly 40%, and that’s before Uncle Sam got his cut. Needless to say, social media exploded with reactions.

Did Liza’s aunt receive a fixed salary in addition to her commission?

Although it’s understandable that Star Magic and Ogie Diaz received commissions from Liza’s projects, it came as a surprise that her aunt Joni was also taking a cut. As Liza’s manager, Ogie Diaz played a crucial role in shaping her career, from booking projects to marketing strategies and pursuing long-term goals.

Liza seemed to have no problem with this setup at first. However, her fanbase was less than thrilled to learn that the artist was only pocketing 40% of her well-deserved earnings. The question on everyone’s mind is whether or not Liza’s aunt was pulling in a steady paycheck in addition to her commission.
