Popular lawyer and radio host Atty. Bruce Rivera passed away after more than a year of battling the effects of his brain aneurysm.
Rivera’s close friend, MJ Quiambao Reyes, Atty. Nick Nangit and Kat De Castro announced the sad news to Rivera’s followers.
“I am deeply saddened by his demise, not only because our country lost a very brilliant, honest, and patriotic mind, but more so because I lost a true friend. And yet I am happy that he is now with his partner, his twin flame,” Nangit said.
“Rest in peace to my staunchest defender, Atty. Bruce V. Rivera. I love you so much my dear friend. I will miss our chikahan and your contagious laughter. The world just got a little sadder,” De Castro wrote.
It can be recalled that Rivera slipped into a coma, but later gained consciousness after a successful operation.
While he survived the aneurysm, Rivera only showed a little improvement, which prevented him from living a normal life.
Last September, Bruce who celebrated his birthday during that month conducted his final livestream to his followers.
Bruce was known to be a defender of the previous administration, which gained him a huge following.
