MANILA, Philippines (UPDATED: Sept. 11, 8:28 p.m.) — Kapamilya actor Baron Geisler has denied rumors that he will be returning to a rehabilitation center, but admitted that he visited there for spiritual guidance. 

In an interview with the media after his conferment for being a "Datu" by the royal family of King Raja Mohammadmamay Hasan Adurajak and Queen Maria Makiling Helen Fatima Nasaria Panolino Abdujarak, Baron admitted that he was depressed lately.

“Wala akong comment d'on. I guess siguro 'yung mga detractors,” Baron said on what made him depressed.

Last week, reports said the actor was allegedly set to return to rehab for treatment of severe alcoholism, but Baron denied this.

“But I got depressed for a while because 'pag napapanood ng tao 'yung role kong Bungo. Siyempre coming from rehab, very spiritual, my thoughts were really pure kaya medyo naguluhan ako. And then my fiance, she flies back and forth sa Cebu. There are times na two weeks mag-isa ako, so na-depress ako. That's the reason,” he added. 

The “Ang Probinsyano” actor said he went to the rehabilitation center for him to be grounded again because he was overwhelmed to become a celebrity again.  

“Regarding sa rehab, I went there and asked for spiritual guidance sa kanila, so it's for me just to be grounded. Kasi I'm beginning to be artista again and siyempre nawala ako sa limelight for three years. Nakakaoverwhelm siya kasi kilala ka nanaman ng tao, so what I did was inunahan ko na, just to ground myself at hindi lumaki ang ulo ko and also be closer to God kasi mapakatindi talaga ng demonyo eh,” Baron said. 

“May kasabihan nga, 'Ang tunay na matapang ay 'yung gumagawa o pumupunta sa matuwid, 'yung nag-oobey at hindi 'yung gumagawa ng kasamaan. Kasi napakadali eh, napakadaling uminom, napakadaling tumingin sa babae, napakadaling makipag-away, makipagsuntukan, so I'm being away from the bad and for me, whenever I am depressed or inaatake ako ng bad elements, I have a spiritual family to go to. So we pray, may structure,” he shared.
