MANILA, Philippines (Updated Dec. 9, 11:30 a.m.) — Singer Jovit Baldivino has passed away earlier today. He was 29 years old. 

According to the official statement sent by his parents, Hilario and Cristeta Baldivino, and his fiancée, Camille Ann Miguel, to ABS-CBN reporter MJ Felipe, Baldivino was "recuperating for a week with hypertension maintenance medicines." Doctors had advised him to take a rest but he obliged an invitation from a friend for an event in Batangas City. He sang three songs and by the third song, he was seen gasping for breath. 

Baldivino was sitting for an hour when "his face was deformed with flowing salivas." The singer was rushed to the nearest hospital last December 3 around 10 p.m. His CT scan showed bloot clot in his brain, which was said to be a sign of aneurysm. Blood was suctioned from his brain last December 4. He was in comatose for five days. Baldivino passed today at 4 a.m.

Miguel posted on Facebook a photo of them together, with caption "Asawa ko" and crying emojis. 

Earlier, Totoong Balita Southern Tagalog reported that Baldivino died after few days in an intensive care unit (ICU) at Jesus of Nazareth Hospital in Batangas City. 

The news was also confirmed by the hospital through radio station Brigada Batangas.

Earlier reports said that Baldivino was rushed to the hospital after he collapsed in a party days ago. 

His wife recently called out netizens to verify the news first before posting online.  

"Sa lahat po ng nag popost sa asawa ko siguraduhin niyong tama ang post nyo at di kayo nakakatulong lalo nyo pinalalala di kayo nakakatulong matuto kayo humingi ng permission. Wag nyo pong palalain ang sitwasyon niya!!!!!! Makapag post lang kayo...prayers po ang kailangan namin di ang maling post niyo,” she wrote.  

Baldivino rose to fame after he won the first edition of ABS-CBN reality show “Pilipinas Got Talent” in 2010.
