Earlier this week, some reports speculated whether or not Albie Casiño went to the United States to avoid the controversies that he has been involved in.


It will be recalled that when Andi Eigenmann announced her pregnancy recently, many people believed that Albie is the father of her child. However, Albie's mother, Rina Casiño, posted a tweet saying: ""no ones denying nor confirming. Just saying he is not her 1st bf & I didnt hear ms jaclyn say Albie did u?"


On June 30, E-Live host and entertainment columnist Ogie Diaz quoted Mrs. Casiño as saying: "Walang problema kung anak ko ang nakabuntis ke Andi. Blessing yan. And we welcome DNA Test."


As a result, Andi's father, Mark Gil, granted an interview on The Buzz last July 10 to talk about the pregnancy of his daughter. He did not reveal the identity of the father of Andi Eigenmann's baby but he did give this strongly worded message: "If you don't want it, then you won't have it!"

With regards to rumors speculating whether Albie left the Philippines or not, PEP.ph asked the people in charge of the upcoming episode of Maalaala Mo Kaya. According to them, Albie was last seen taping for this MMK episode last Tuesday, July 12.


Albie was supposed to be part of an upcoming Kathryn Bernardo-Julia Montes movie but management decided to give his role to Enrique Gil.
