Jake Ejercito finally broke his silence regarding his break-up with controversial actress Andi Eigenmann. Jake, who is the son of former president Joseph Estrada with Laarni Enriquez told PEP.ph that he was the one who split up with Andi.
He also told the entertainment website that he was hurt with what Jaclyn Jose said in an interview that his parents did not approve Andi for him since she already has a child out of wedlock.
"'Yong statements niya, ‘yong insinuations, were unwarranted. Wala naman siyang sinabi blatantly, pero parang na-put ‘yong parents ko in a bad light," said Jake, who is currently in London to study.
Andi, who is also surprised of what her mom insinuated in the interview tried to reach out and say sorry to Jake's family. Jake said that until now Andi continues to apologize for what happened. "Kasi nga, hindi niya pa rin madiretso 'yung mom ko. So, until now, nagso-sorry pa rin siya. Hiyang-hiya siya," he said.
Meanwhile, Jake Ejercito revealed that that there was a point when he and actor Albie Casiño were both in a relationship with actress Andi Eigenmann, saying that Andi was already his girlfriend even before the actress got pregnant.
"The thing is, before siya mabuntis, kami na. I think my mom mentioned in an interview na… nakita niya kasi ako eh. One time, nung mag-LQ (lovers’ quarrel) kami ni Andi, nasa Manila ako. Bumalik ako ng London kasi start na ng school. Pagbalik ko, sila na ulit ni Albie. Pero hindi kami nag-break or anything. Nag-away lang kami. Pagbalik ko, biglang buntis na, gano’n," he shared.
Jake also shared that his parents never told him to stay away from Andi. In fact, he stayed by Andi’s side, especially during that time when Albie was denying that he’s the father Andi’s baby. He, however, said his parents told him to be careful.
"Well, napanood naman natin 'yung reaction ng dad ko [sa 'TV Patrol']. Totoo 'yung sinabi niya na, both my parents, never nila akong pinagbawalan kay Andi. 'Yun lang, nung nabuntis si Andi, they just told me to be careful, to watch out, to look after myself lang. But not necessarily bawal na, ‘Itigil n’yo na ‘yan!’ Walang gano’n. Kasi, kung ganun man, matagal nang wala ‘to, e. Matagal nang natapos sana," he said.
