Jennica Garcia dismisses rumors she reconciled with Alwyn Uytingco
Jennica Garcia clapped back at those who are speculating that she has reconciled with her estranged husband, actor Alwyn Uytingco, after they were recently seen together in Tanay, Rizal.
The actress confirmed her split with Uytingco last May and has since moved to a new home with her daughters. She did not reveal the reason behind the breakup but said it was not caused by financial issues.
In the wake of their split, Garcia clarified that she and her children had indeed spent some time with Uytingco in Tanay. But she added that the meeting does not mean they have reconciled, the actress said while showing a photo of herself from the trip on her Facebook page yesterday, July 20.
“My trip to Tanay won’t be the only instance where people would see the father of my children and [me] in one place,” she said, questioning why netizens were shocked when she was seen with Uytingco after their separation.
“Hindi ba pwedeng we are [trying] to co-parent healthily for our children […]?” she asked. (Can’t it be because we are trying to co-parent healthily for our children?)
Para sa MARITES na may pa- Don't Us, Don't Us sa akin. I can just opt to just delete the comment and block this…
Garcia added that she cannot simply cut all ties with Uytingco after the breakup, especially since they have children together.
“Hindi kami boyfriend and girlfriend na dahil hiwalay, cut all ties. We have children to think of [at] hindi pwedeng sariling kapakanan lang iniisip,” she told fans. (We’re not boyfriend and girlfriend where if we break up, we cut all ties. We have children to think of and we can’t just think of ourselves.)
Garcia then pointed out that Uytingco is allowed to spend time with her children but she requested him to avoid posting about their situation on social media. The actress added that the Tanay trip will not be the last time Uytingco will be seen with her daughters.
“[Hindi] ko ipagdadamot ang mga anak ko sa Tatay Alwyn nila (I am not stopping my children from being with their daddy Alwyn),” she said, adding that she still needs time to “heal.”
Garcia reminded fans that if she and Uytingco were to get back together, she would tell the public about it personally. She also called out “chismosas” (gossips) who were making assumptions about her personal life.
“Kung magkabalikan man kami ni Alwyn, manggagaling sa bibig ko. Hindi manggagaling sa bibig ng kaibigan mo o sa bibig ng kahit na sino na wala naman alam tungkol sa personal na buhay ko,” she stressed. (If Alwyn and I were to get back together, the news would come from me. Not from your friend or from anyone who does not know anything about my personal life.)
Garcia and Uytingco were together for four years before they got married in 2014. They have two daughters, Athena and Severina. JB
