In an interview with Boy Abunda for the late-night news program Bandila, Carl said, "Ang dasal ko lang po ngayon, sana sumuko na po kung sino ang gumawa nun sa tatay ko.

"Saka sana po kung nasaan man ang daddy ko, I hope masaya po siya kasama ng kuya ko, na namatay rin po nung pinanganak siya."

Since Ricky Pempengco’s death hit the news media, there has been tension between the family of Charice and the relatives of their late father.

However, Carl says that they have already patched things up.

"Sana po dire-diretso na ang pagkakaayos between sa family ng daddy ko saka sa family namin."

THE LAST TIME. Asked when Carl saw his father last, Carl disclosed: "Three years ago po...seconds lang [ang pagkikita].

"Hindi ko siya nakilala. Nakipag-appear siya sa akin.

"Na-realize ko lang na siya yun nung nakauwi na po kami.

"[Nakita ko siya] sa isang event na kinantahan ni Ate [Charice]."

How did he learn that the man was his father?

"Sinabi ng isa naming kasama," said Carl.

THE CONFIRMATION. What was his initial reaction when he learned about his father’s death?

"Pina-confirm sa akin ng mommy ko earlier this morning, 6:30 [a.m.].

"Hindi po ako naniniwala kahit nabasa ko na sa isang newspaper. Hindi ako naniwala agad.

"Tiningnan ko po lahat ng channels at hindi ako makapaniwala sa balita.

"Kasi kahit ano pong nangyari sa past, daddy ko pa rin yun. And I still miss him."

How did he confirm the tragic news?

"I called my cousin para i-confirm kung anong nangyari. Tapos nagkuwento po ang cousin ko, dun na po kami nag-iyakan.
