1. Is Andi Eigenmann hitting back on Jake Ejercito's interview about her and Ellie?
Screencap from Pep.ph
Actress and single mom Andi Eigenmann made a series of tweets that seem to be a reaction to an interview that her former boyfriend Jake Ejercito made recently. The tweets, however, were deleted immediately but not fast enough. "Pwede ka nga mag-showbiz. Ang plastic mo eh," Andi's first tweet read, and followed by the above screen-capped tweets. After the well-received Eat Bulaga's Lenten special "God Gave Me You", which stars AlDub love team Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza, Ejercito was asked about the real score between him and Andi. He stated they were just friends but he does consider himself as Ellie's "father." The two had been seen recently traveling to Cebu with a couple of their friends. (pep.ph)
