Jackie Forster says ‘it’s time to let go’ of sons Kobe, Andre
“Hanggang kailan ako magmamakaawa (Until when will I beg [for their forgiveness])?”
This was the question posed by former actress Jackie Forster Thursday night during her interview in the ABS-CBN talk show “Aquino & Abunda Tonight.”
Forster was referring to her sons Kobe and Andre Paras with actor and former basketball star Benjie Paras, whom she had a falling out with.
She said they’re still not talking and she reiterated her claim that her children have been brainwashed to believe that she abandoned them to be with another man.
“That’s not true. I have documents to prove it,” said Forster, who has since apologized and tried to reach out to her children through social media.
Forster told host Boy Abunda that she believes she was doing what Andre and Kobe had asked of her during the last time they talked two years ago which was to give them space.
“Until when will I beg? Their sister got sick and all and they still didn’t have the heart to forgive and to reach out,” she said.
She was pertaining to her daughter with her present partner who was diagnosed with leukemia.
Forster, who had also recently given birth to a baby boy, thanked her partner for always being supportive in her desire to be with Andre and Kobe.
“I think it’s time to let go… but I will never stop loving them.”
Andre is currently pursuing a career in local showbiz while Kobe is making a name for himself playing basketball in the US.
