The internet celebrity issued an open letter to Paolo Contis about “sustento” on Facebook.
He recently appeared on the Fast Talk With Boy Abunda lately. Paolo became teary-eyed during the interview when discussing his estranged daughters.
The comedian and actor has three daughters. With his estranged wife Lian Paz, he has two children: Xonia and Xalene.
Summer is a second kid he shares with his former live-in partner LJ Reyes.
He once admitted to Boy Abunda that he doesn’t support his daughters financially. “I have some savings for them that, hopefully, one day, I could give them straight,” he said.
Netizens and well-known figures, especially Xian Gaza, responded to his revelation.
Being a father himself who has children with his two ex-wives, he posted a lengthy response to Paolo Contis’s statement.
Here’s the open letter of Xian Gaza:
“OPEN LETTER TO MR. PAOLO CONTIS”
This message is not from a point of hate but from a point of a man na kaparehas mong may dalawang ex na naiwanan ng anak.
I understand kung bakit hindi ka nagbibigay ng sustento because you have your personal reasons. Maaaring lulong sa sugal si babae or sinusunog lamang niya ang pera sa mga luho o baka naman may lalaki siya na pinagkakagastusan.
Hindi napupunta sa kapakanan ng mga anak mo yung pera. Those are the possibilities. Nauunawaan kita. That’s why pinili mo na lang mag-ipon ng separate savings account para sa mga bata dahil wala kang tiwala sa dalawang babae. I understand that.
Let me share to you this short story.
Way back November 2021, nag-away kami nung nanay ng babae kong anak. Social media drama. Siniraan niya ko sa publiko without a proper basis. Post-partum depression. Her mental health is not okay that time. We didn’t communicate for 8 consecutive months hanggang sa nag-reach out na lang siya sa akin at humingi ng tawad.
From December 2021 to July 2022 na hindi kami nag-usap, my laywer is sending a regular sustento to her bank account every first week of the month.
Ano yung point na gusto kong tumbukin?
Paolo, no matter what issues you have with their moms, kesyo hindi napupunta sa tama yung sustentong ipinapadala mo, obligasyon mo pa ring magpadala ng fixed amount every month para sa araw-araw na gastusin ng mga bata.
Kung saan ito gagastusin ni babae eh is not your problem anymore. Labas ka na dun. Diskarte na nila yun. Iniwanan natin sila ng mga anak na papalakihin ng ilang taon at araw-araw aalagaan habang tayo ay nagbubuhay-binata eh that’s the least that we can do for them.
Sobrang hirap maging ina jusko!
Regular sustento na lang sana.”
