Jake Ejercito responded to a basher accusing him and his ex-girlfriend Andi Eigenmann of “staying quiet” when the actress was suspected of being impregnated by Albie Casiño, also her ex-boyfriend.  

On Facebook, a netizen made a comment relative to an online article about Ejercito supposedly poking fun at a sample question on the Civil Service Exam Masterclass and making his own grammar example implying a past issue involving the actor, Eigenmann and Casiño. 


The netizen, Ivan Peñaflorida, wrote, “Jake WAS silent during the times when Albie Casiño was being assaulted for allegedly impregnating Andi Eigenman,” 


Ejercito did not hold back and replied, “Ivan IS a clout chaser who comments without knowing the facts and the whole story. He can’t even spell names right.” 

The “Linlang” actor then shared the screenshot of his discourse with the netizen on his Facebook Story and wrote, “Baka kailangan mong mag visita iglesia Ivan Peñaflorida,”

It can be recalled that Eigenmann’s first boyfriend was Casiño. They then they broke up and the actress started a new relationship with Ejercito. But when Ejercito went to London, Eigenmann reportedly got back together with Casiño. 

In 2011, Eigenmann sparked pregnancy rumors, with either of the two actors being suspected as the father. However, Casiño reportedly denied that he had sired Eigenmann’s child. 

“From the start, there was always me and Jake Ejercito. There was always the two of us. I don’t know why everyone thinks it was me. There is no concrete evidence. She just said it was me. She never gave me a DNA test. I don’t know why people automatically assume it was me,” Casiño said at the time. 

After five years, it was revealed that the biological father was Ejercito. This was confirmed by Eigenmann’s half-sister Max. “Yes, he [Ejercito] is. They did a test. He’s the dad. They’re co-parenting. That’s why he always posts photos of my niece,” she said on the “Good Times with DJ Mo Twister” podcast. 


Despite Max’s confirmation, Eigenmann and Ejercito did not give interviews to confirm this. To this day, the two are on good terms and are co-parenting their daughter, Ellie.

Meanwhile, Casiño has harbored “ill feelings” for Eigenmann, whom he said did not apologize for what they had done to him and his career. He said last year that “he did not want to work with the actress again” but that he would be civil to her if ever they bumped into each other. He also said at the time that he’s okay with Ejercito. 

Recently, Casiño was asked about the death of Eigenmann’s mother, veteran actress Jaclyn Jose. While he extended his condolences, he said he was “not affected.”

“Unang-una, I just wanna say, rest in peace, Ms. Jane, tsaka condolences sa lahat ng tao na nagmamahal sa kanya. Pero hindi naman ako apektado doon. I don’t think my presence would be welcome there, so bakit ako makikiramay, di ba?” he said. 

(First of all, I just wanna say, rest in peace, Ms. Jane, and my condolences to all the people who love her. But I’m not affected by that. I don’t think my presence will be welcome there, so why should I sympathize, right?)
