GOSSIP GIRL: Indonesian superstar is a Filipino who started out as ‘basurero’

“My first hamburger came from the trash I collected in the buses that I cleaned for ten pesos a day when I was a kid. My stepfather was a basurero and he trained us to be the same, so we can have money to go to school. My mother left me with my stepfather when I was a kid. But he loved me just like his own children. Because of this, my stepbrothers were kinda jealous of me when we were kids, so one of them stabbed me with a ballpen under my eye. I still have the battle scar,” Leo Consul chats with your resident Manila Bulletin Gossip Girl in the Instagram app.
