Kapatid lang kayo at ako ay ANAK. Kung natatandaan nyo, KAYO MISMO ANG NAGSABI SA AMIN NA IWASAN ANG DADDY KO. Sinabi nyo pa na wag gamitin ang apelido nya. Hindi pinagbawal ni mommy na dalawin ang daddy naming pero HINDI NYO KAMI PINAYAGAN. Wala kayong respeto sa PAMILYA NYA para sabihin nyo yan ngayon! Imbis na ayusin nyo, sinisira nyo pa!

Alam ko na nagalit ako sa kana! Pero hindi ko sinasabing itinatakwil ko sya! Matagal akong nagging tahimik sa mga eskandalong ginagawa nyo. Pero ngayon, di ko na kaya pati sa pagkamaty nya GANYAN PARIN KAYO. Hindi ako takot. Lalo na sa mga taong walang respeto.”
