Comedian Pokwang defended Lee O’Brian, clarifying her ex-partner did not cheat on her.
The actress-comedian told Nelson Canlas on “24 Oras” that the internet rumors were not true.
“Una sa lahat, walang third party in all fairness kay Papang. Hindi rin pera. Walang ganon. Siguro baka napagod lang kami,” she said.
“Sana alam ng tao na iyong hinuhusgahan niyo na si Lee O’Brian ay mabuting tao naman po, mabuting ama. Nasasaktan lang ako do’n sa mga nababasa ko kesyo palamunin ko raw. Masipag po iyong tao.”
She stated that she wanted to keep their split private because she had always dealt with difficulties alone.
“Ako iyong taong lahat tinitiis ko. Hangga’t kaya ko, ako lang. Hangga’t kaya kong itago sa mga anak ko, huwag iiyak sa kanila, lahat ng burden, gusto ko ako lang,” Pokwang said.
“Parang nahihiya akong mandamay sa pamilya ko, which is naisip ko ngayon na kaya nga pamilya, dapat damayan.”
