There is a famous Thai saying that comes to mind when I think about the scandals that Mario Maurer is going through as he reaches the top of his career. It's something like "Ying Soong, Ying Nao." The higher you are the more colder it gets. After having numerous scandals involving him it seems like Mario can't seem to get himself out.
From a video sex scandal of him and his girlfriend to ditching work and showing up late to events for no apparent reason to his girlfriend caught by paprazzi cheating on him! Wow! We can say that Mario is on a string of bad luck! The latest scandal involving Nong Mario is that his former Manager "Coco" went on EFM's radio show "Chae Dtae Chao" to expose Mario on why he switched from "Coco" to "A"
Mario's decision onto why he changed Managers was stated by Mario himself that the reason was because both parties had different opinions on decisions while "Coco" said that was all bs and the reason for why Mario ditched him for "A" was the fact that Mario wanted more money and that is what caused it all.
