Actress Andi Eigenmann has opened up about the controversial photo of her rumored boyfriend Jake Ejercito supposedly kissing another girl.

Although she had already seemingly called out Jake on Facebook by posting a link to the item and photo that appeared on an entertainment blog site, she said, “Siyempre masakit pero wala tayong magagawa, it happened already.”

She shared that she had already spoken with Jake about the story behind the viral picture.

Noting that while she “would really love to forgive” him, Andi, who is still mourning on the death of her father Mark Gil, said she needs space for now.

The 24-year-old single mom is moving on and focusing on things that are “more important to me and deserve my attention and my love.”

She added, “I’m not going to dwell on something that shouldn’t be important… not waste my time on something that doesn’t treat me of any importance.”

Although she keeps her “never say never” attitude because “it’s always a matter of choice,” the actress pointed out, “If we want to fix things, we can. Pero I guess everything happens in its own time. Right now is not the right time.”

Following the issue, Jake once again stirred intrigue on social media after supposedly deleting tweets about not giving up on love.

Fashion Pulis posted a screengrab of one of the purported missing tweet that read: “Bury the past, build a castle where they lay. Be my princess again @andieigengirl.” This was apparently originally posted roughly a week ago.

Meanwhile, heartthrob James Reid denied rumors that he is courting Andi after their photos together – along with Bret Jackson, the former’s housemate on “Pinoy Big Brother” 2010 edition – circulated online.

“It is actually my friend who is dating Andi,” James said without actually naming which friend he meant. *(MNS)
