MANILA - Actress Ai-Ai delas Alas on Tuesday dismissed rumors that former child actor Jiro Manio has passed away, posting a photo of the troubled star on Instagram looking "super healthy."

"Ok na ok sya buhay na buhay... Sana mga taong nag kakalat na patay sya tumigil na sila," the 50-year-old Delas Alas, who has worked with Manio on "Tanging Ina," wrote as the accompanying caption.

Manio, who was found homeless around the Ninoy Aquino International Airport in June, is currently inside an undisclosed "wellness facility" in Quezon City.

In an interview on DZMM on Monday, his brother, Anjo, gave an update regarding the "Magnifico" star's condition.

"Okay naman po siya. Siguro medyo nagkaroon lang kami ng problema. Pero sana maging maayos po ang problema kung anuman po yung kinakaharap namin ngayon at ang kapatid ko," he said.

Anjo added: "Gusto ko [rin] pong sabihin sa kanya na magbago siya kasi maraming gustong tumulong sa kanya. Tsaka sana ayusin niya ang sarili na para maging maayos ang buhay niya, para yung mga tumutulong sa kanya matuwa, 'tsaka maging maayos din siya."
