Andi cries ex-boyfriend hit her-A A +A
Monday, May 7, 2012
ANDI Eigenmann made a shocking revelation that she was physically and verbally abused by ex-boyfriend Albie Casino while she was carrying her daughter.
The young actress gave a no-holds-barred interview with King of Talk Boy Abunda Sunday afternoon on showbiz oriented program "The Buzz."
Andi said she is speaking about the incident to clear her name and for people to understand where she's coming from.
"I deserve to be heard too. Since the beginning, I've always been the bad one. Not just against Albie but in general. But what's hurtful is it's always for the wrong reasons," she said.
"Ayoko ng pumayag na tinatapak-tapakan lang ako. Ayoko ng mapahiya. (I no longer allow myself to be trampled upon by others. I no longer want to be embarrassed) For once, I want to stand up and prove to people I'm strong. Ayoko ng magsinungaling para sa ibang tao na alam ko namang walang pakialam sa akin (I no longer want to lie for people who doesn’t even care about me)," she said.
The single mother revealed that Albie beat her during their last encounter in the latter's house. This was three days after she thought Albie will be with her throughout and after the pregnancy.
"I just wonder what happened to him because when he first found out that I was pregnant, he even told me that if she's a girl, please name her Andrea," she said.
"I said why? I don't want to give her the same name as mine and he goes 'I don't care if people will judge me for this. I will have the right to love her and no one will judge me. And I'm sure she's going to be as beautiful as you.' And three days later, he tells me that he wants nothing to do with it," she narrated.
Andi admitted she was the one who initiated the visit and during that time, she already had a feeling that they needed to settle everything at that moment because it would be their last meeting.
Albie was irked by her visit and said he has nothing to do with her anymore.
"I respected that. I was fine… But the only problem was we're supposed to be in it together," she said.
"Somehow there was still a part of me that I needed him. So, I went to his house. Pagdating ko pa lang eh pinapauwi na niya ako. He doesn't want to talk to me anymore. He's being so mean and he was verbally abusing me," she added.
Andi admitted that she slapped her Albie after hurtful words were thrown to her.
"Because I slapped him, he got mad at me and grabbed me by the collar, hit me against that rock wall in his garage and smack, not slap, smack me eight times until I went down on the floor," she said.
After the incident, Andi claimed, Albie went inside the house, called and asked his mom to let her leave the house. According to the actress, his parent did nothing to at least clarify the situation.
Andi further revealed that it was not the first time that Albie hurt her. She reported a similar incident that took place during the Star Magic Ball.
"My friends saw it. He always accuses me of things I don't do, like cheating. I thought it was normal because we are both very young," she said.
She even received threats from Albie when the news of her pregnancy was already out in the open and people were already making speculations on who the father of the baby was.
Though a lot of things happened between her and Albie, Andi does not regret any of them and will forever be thankful that Ellie came to her life.
"Kung hindi ko siya minahal, wala si Ellie (Ellie wouldn’t be here have I not loved Albie). I don't want to have my life any other way. I don't care. I don't have any regret because we were happy too once. He was my best friend," Andi said. (Sunnex)
