Perez started in GMA-7 reality-based talent show ‘Star Struck’ and has since transferred to ABS-CBN as a Star Magic talent.
He attended the Star Magic Ball earlier this year and since then, he had not communicated with the Star Magic management.
Perez left a wife Liv Espino, a flight attendant he married in 2009.
