Last February, news broke out about the departure of the younger Rivero alongside his brother Prince and Brent Paraiso from the team. The school shrugged it off as a temporary leave, citing the players' commitments with endorsements violate team policies.
Rivero then broke his silence by confirming La Salle's statement and saying that he's still attending classes at La Salle.
However, rumors of the three leaving never really died down, with talks of them being involved in drugs, which prompted Rivero to release a result of a drug test which he supposedly passed.
Paraiso, on the other hand, had contrasting results.
There's still no word as to whether Prince and Paraiso will follow suit.
