Celebrity singer Jake Zyrus made another round of headlines after his life story was featured in a drama reality television program of ABS-CBN network. Jake's life story was concentrated on his career after he made to an international stardom and made television guesting at several international networks. Jake Zyrus caught the attention of David Foster, who became his influential music influencer, allowing him to guest in a variety of international concerts around the world. However, Jake Zyrus drove a U-turn direction in his career due to his personal issues that deeply affected his professional career.
On August 26, 2017, Jake Cyrus was the face of "Maalaala Mo Kaya" drama program of ABS-CBN that was aired between 8:30 pm and 10 pm. The storyline of the drama anthology is more concentrated on Jake's transition from a female to lesbian, and to a transgender. While Jake was transitioning from his former Charice days, life was hard because it took her a very rough path for her to break free. The scenes from the drama present a family that has been confronted by differences, especially when they are living in a conservative culture. Jake had a hard time trying to find acceptance for who he really is because there were numerous obstacles that he encountered while transitioning as a transgender.
Just hours after the show aired worldwide, Racquel Pempengco, the mother of Jake Zyrus made a response with regard to the plot of the story. All details of the drama anthology are all fabricated and negated all claims and re-enactments of Jake Zyrus. Her mother still addresses Jake as Charice, but the matriarch reiterated that she already accepted his son's sexual orientation. Racquel claims that she shed tears while watching the program on that Saturday night and became very disappointed with the storyline. Jake's mother has no choice but to accept the situation as well as the plot that has been presented by the program and will pray for the situation to settle in the future.
Jake Zyrus' grandmother surprisingly supported the storyline, especially towards the behavior of his mother. Thess Pineda indicated that she finally realized that Jake's re-enactment of his situation under his mother's lair was all correct and contradicted Racquel's reaction against the story of the drama anthology. The grandmother now wishes Jake to any endeavors that he may apply to both of his professional and personal careers in his journey. Jake then refuted to his mother's contradictions with his story from the drama, indicating that he is already happy that he finally made a blast about his real situation. He is also thankful for his grandmother's unexpected response for supporting his story.
