Luis on Jennylyn: 'Hindi siya mukhang pera'
MANILA – Television host Luis Manzano defended his girlfriend, actress Jennylyn Mercado, against accusations saying she is just after the money of former boyfriend Patrick Garcia.
This comes after it was rumored that Mercado is allegedly asking for financial support from Garcia for their son Alex Jazz.
In an interview with entertainment website Pep.ph, Manzano said he knows Mercado more than anybody else and he believes that she does not need to ask for financial support from Garcia.
“I know Jen, I know how much money she makes kahit paano. I don’t know the exact figures, but I know she’s very blessed, and Jen is not the type na isip-pera. That’s as far as I can go. Grabe 'yung sa pera…. Alam ko she’s very smart with her finances, hindi siya mukhang pera at all,” Manzano said.
The Kapamilya TV host, however, steered clear from any other issues involving Mercado and Garcia, adding that he is not in the position to comment.
“Sabi ko nga, anything pertaining to that, I’ll leave it… to that aspect, to the family. Respeto ko ‘yon sa kanya, her family, kahit kay Pat [Patrick] rin. Siyempre I can’t meddle with anything about the issue dahil sa kanila ‘yon and I respect that,” he said.
Last February, Garcia admitted that he and Mercado have not yet settled their differences.
Garcia said he does not regularly see his son with Mercado because he and the actress are not on speaking terms.
Refusing to detail the “very complicated reason” behind it, Garcia is hoping that everything between them will be ironed out soon.
