Pokwang says easier to move on from Lee O’Brian if he leaves PH for good
Pokwang confessed that she’s still feeling “pain and anger” towards her estranged partner Lee O’Brian, and that it would be easier for her to move forward once he’s out of the Philippines.
Without disclosing O’Brian’s name, the actress-comedienne admitted to a lie detector interview with Kim Atienza and Susan Enriquez that she hasn’t fully moved on from her previous relationship.
“Nasubaybayan namin ang iyong makulay na pag-ibig o love life. Nakita rin namin ang iyong pag-iyak. Ang tanong, naka-move on ka na ba sa huli mong heartbreak?” Atienza asked Pokwang. (We have witnessed your colorful love life. We also saw your heartbreak. The question is, have you moved on from your recent heartbreak?)
“I’m not gonna lie, Kuya Kim and Madam Susan. No,” she said in response. “Hindi ganun kadali. Kapag wala na siya sa Pilipinas, yan ang super move on ko na talaga. Sa ngayon, hindi pa. Ayokong i-share ang hangin ng Pilipinas sa kanya, hindi niya deserve,” she added before laughing. (It’s not been easy. If he’s no longer in the Philippines, that’s when I’d be able to move on completely. But for now, not yet. I don’t want to share the same air with him in the Philippines. He doesn’t deserve it.)
Pokwang was then asked in a follow-up question if she’s feeling “pain or anger” towards her ex-partner, to which she replied, “Both.”
“Kasi alam mo ‘yun, ang dami ko nang ibinigay na chance [sa kanya], [even] to visit the child, pero wala,” she said, referring to their daughter Malia. (If only you knew how many chances I gave him, even to just visit the child. But he didn’t do anything.)
The interview comes months after the actress-comedienne filed a deportation complaint and cancellation of visa against O’Brian, claiming the latter was only using a tourist visa even though he’s been in the Philippines for eight years.
In response, the Philippines-based actor issued a counter-affidavit against his ex-partner, where he hoped that the government would exercise “fair[ness] and justice” when it comes to addressing his case.
Updates regarding both camps’ legal battle have yet to be disclosed to the public, as of this writing. EDV
