Let's turn back time to 2011: Then 21, Andi Eigenmann was confirmed to be pregnant with her first child, and the father was said to be rising star Albie Casiño, Andi's boyfriend at that time. But after a complicated public paternity drama that lasted for the next few years, it was only in 2016 when it was confirmed that Jake Ejercito was indeed the father of Andi's daughter, Ellie Eigenmann. In a statement to Cosmopolitan, Albie said of the news: "I'm just happy that the truth is out, I can finally relax now."
Now in 2021, it seems that all parties have moved on from the issue, that is, until Albie, the newest Pinoy Big Brother housemate, opened up about that part of his past in a Kumu livestream. Albie didn't mince his words when talking about his ex-girlfriend, who's currently based in Siargao with her family. "I think it's been long enough," he said. "It's okay for me to talk about it. I guess she moved on. So I can finally talk about it now. I don't mind and I guess I'll be no holds barred if they ask because I'm kind of tired of covering up for her, bro, you know what I mean? I'm not going to hold my tongue so you can look good anymore."
He then pointed out that Andie has gained weight and that he'll most likely hit up Siargao after he gets out of the PBB house: "And my friends just saw her in Siargao and they said she's super fat so that makes me super happy. I don't know if that's bad of me. But it brings me great joy to know she gained a lot of weight now. Yeah, I don't care. That's the truth. 'Di tayo nagpla-plastikan dito. That's the way we do it, man. Hindi tayo nakikipagplastikan dito. That's the last thing we're going to do. It's funny because after I get out, I want to go to Siargao after but she's there. It ain't a thing. I don't mind."
Albie went on to refute a claim that Andi made in September 2020 when she said she had already apologized to Albie. Replying to a comment from a netizen, Andi wrote: "Not that I owe you any sort of explanation, but since you're the only one that has tagged me in this, I actually already have. (You can ask him that too.) You and the rest of the public are not aware, because I never owed you that apology. I owed that to him. You see, it's one thing not to have given forgiveness. That's something I can't control. But it's also another thing to say otherwise."
But Albie denied that Andi gave him a sincere apology and revealed she sent him a "long-ass non-apology" through text:
"I was open to giving her a chance to apologize but she never did apologize...I remember I read a post about that on IG. My best friend in the States she sent me like a Twitter post of someone. I don't know how Twitter works but I guess someone was replying to Andi ng, 'Pero nag-sorry ka na ba kay Albie?' So I guess when you reply, you can see the original tweet. So I only posted the reply and then I put some laughing, crying emojis and then I said, 'Hindi pa. Lol.' And then, dude, she sent me this long-ass non-apology. You know what I mean? For people who've been in toxic relationships, you know what I mean. The non-apologies. They seem like they're saying sorry but they're not. She never apologized in the text.
"And then she was saying how I saw her one time in a club and then she referenced that as an apology. And then I just replied to her, I said, 'Lol, If you're referring to the time I saw you in Pool Club, that wasn't an apology, bro.' Ginanun ko lang siya. Tapos sabi ko I don't give an F. Imma do me. You do you. But where I'm from, that's not an apology and you know it.' Ginanun ko lang siya. I wanted to say some other stuff like if you bash me publicly, the least you could do is apologize publicly right? But nah, I guess it ain't in her I guess. She ain't like that. But yeah, I hope she thinks about that at night before she goes to sleep. I'm not even joking."
Andi has yet to respond to Albie's statements.
