LOOK: Dick Israel visits Bong Revilla, Jinggoy Estrada
MANILA, Philippines – After reports of him falling on hard times made the rounds on social media last week, actor Dick Israel looks like he's in better spirits.
Vivian Velez, who has been vocal about helping out the actor after his house burned down, posted a photo of Dick with actor-politicians Jinggoy Estrada and Bong Revilla, who both worked with Dick in movies like Katas ng Saudi and Manong Gang: Ang Kilabot ang Maganda.
Vivian said the visit happened on Sunday, July 10.
Bong and Jinggoy, who recently finished their terms as senators, are currently detained for being allegedly involved in the pork barrel scam.
Vivian also posted photos of Dick with herself, Nadia Montenegro, Peter Serrano, and Bianca Lapus.
She used the hashtag "#damaykamay," in reference to the Damay Kamay Foundation, a group of entertainment industry members who help fellow artists in need.
Dick Israel suffered a stroke in 2010. According to an ABS-CBN News report, he then sought financial help from his colleagues in the industry after medical treatment drained his savings. – Rappler.com
