MANILA – A recent hoax involving Belo Medical endorser, actress Ruffa Gutierrez, and her supposed use of African Diet Pills has been exposed by the Belo Medical Group itself.

The group said on Monday that there is no truth to a Facebook post alleging that Gutierrez had been fired after supposedly revealing that her Belo regimen is a hoax, and that the real reason for her slimming can be credited to African Diet Pills

The post, reportedly lifted from FitFirst Magazine, has been making the rounds of social media since last week. The post links to an article in which Gutierrez purportedly made a statement revealing the real reason she lost weight.

A file photo from an “TV Patrol” interview with Gutierrez and Belo Medical Group founder Dr. Vicki Belo accompanies the link, with the headline: “Ruffa Gutierrez FIRED By Vicki Belo After She Revealed The Truth Behind Her WElGHTLOSS”.

Gutierrez is falsely quoted as having  said: “I am sick of lying to everyone about this. People ask me about this all the time!”

According to the hoax post, Gutierrez supposedly confessed that her treatments at Belo had no bearing on her weight loss, which was a result of her consumption of African Diet Pills.
