INDONESIAN soft-porn actress Julia Perez has announced that she is now suffering from stage 2 cervical cancer.
Commonly recognized as Jupe, the 34-year-old said the diagnosis was released by a Singaporean hospital.
Obviously devastated by the unfortunate news, Jupe couldn’t hold back her tears as she revealed that she went through a period of denial before finally ready to come clean to the public about her disease.
“I needed to be mentally prepared to carry out the announcement,” she told the media at the press conference for her ‘Jupe: My Uncut Story’ tell-all book launch in Kemang, southern Jakarta.
According to the sometime pop singer, she was supposed to undergo chemotherapy to treat her illness, but had to postpone it as she was tied to a few projects.
Ever the optimist, Jupe said she is grateful that the cancer is curable.MYNEWSHUB
