Yumi Ociman fired from The Mocha Girls for choosing BF over the group

Well, not exactly. Because management did ask her to choose between her boyfriend and being part of the group. 

And she chose the boyfriend.

Apparently, there are rules you need to stick to when you’re a part of the girl group. And the number one rule is to NOT have a boyfriend.

Lord Byron Cristobal (love the name), the manager of The Mocha Girls, posted this statement on his Facebook account:

“This is the very foundation of MOCHA GIRLS. We have a dream and that dream requires extra ordinary commitment. We in the Mocha Production train our girls not only to be talented and discipline but also to be independent and happy and complete by themselves. Career first before lovelife. We discovered YUMI OCIMAN violated the No. 1 Rule of Mocha Girls — “NO BF” so we given her a choice between her BF & MOCHA GIRLS but she chooses her BF instead of the group. We cannot blame her but also we can not compromise our No. 1 Rule and the commitment of the other members of Mocha Girls. We wish her the best in life. We love you and we’ll miss you YUMI OCIMAN. GOODBYE”
