Growing up without even knowing who your mother or your father is, is very hard and difficult. You at least want to see their face or even just know their name, but unfortunately it is never easy especially when a certain parent makes a way to be apart from you.
One of the most popular shows on Philippine TV is the long running show hosted by Charo Santos-Concio, Maalaala Mo Kaya that has been a part of the Filipino homes for years.
A lot of stories have been shared and been known to people through the show and has given inspiration to many.
But on the recent episode of MMK, wherein the actor Lito Pimentel has took an a role of a father. An alleged daughter has showed up, stating that for years, Lito has been a good replica of a father in national tv and big screens, but never has he showed up and acted as a father to her.
She shared that Lito has been there from the moment she was born but when she turned four years old (4 years old), he disappeared into thin air. She continued to live together with her mom, until she was on her 1st year in high school.
One day her mom’s friend called them and told them she was with Lito Pimentel, thus it was the time she was able to talk to him. She said that Lito promised to visit them that day and so she waited for him but when he arrived he was d***k since he came from the bar, he then hugged her and said,
“Kamukhang-kamukha talaga kita anak”
(We really look like each other.)
Though their meeting wasn’t as amazing as it seems, it sprung up a wonderful relationship because since then Lito had been communicating with them and has been providing financial support for her studies.
But then after some time, Lito had never appeared in her life again. So she searched for him on social media and when she found his account she then messaged him,
“Papa, this is Yhan. Annie’s child. What has happened to you? Why did you suddenly disappear?”
She waited earnestly for a reply only to receive a message that said,
“I have something to say to you. I know you are a good child but you needed to know the truth. I am not your father since I am impotent. I am sorry if I lied to you.”
She felt really devastated at that time but she had no choice but to move on with her life. The last time she had seen an update from Lito was when she saw his profile picture being updated with him, his wife, and their baby.
Though she is disappointed with the lies fed to her, she did not interfere with any of his personal relationship not until after that Saturday MMK episode.
She has expressed her disappointments on social media and it trended ever since.
