Albie Casiño said he’s no longer plagued with hate messages on social media ever since he was cleared from being the alleged baby daddy of ex-girlfriend Andi Eigenmann’s five-year-old daughter.
He stressed, "Matagal na akong wala sa isyu na 'yan, e. Para sa akin, wala na talaga.
"I forget about it until people ask me about it."
Ever since he became “controversy-free,” the 24-year-old actor noted that it’s easier for him to express his feelings about his non-showbiz girlfriend Michelle Arceo.
He elaborated, “Kasi parang before, when I was still marked with intrigue, if I post a picture with a girl, the comments would be so nasty.
“It would be like they’d bash me. They’d bash even the chick.
"They call her stupid for dating me. You know what I mean? Stuff like that.
“And even until now, I still don’t like to post stuff. ‘Cause I don’t have to publicize that because that’s my private life.
“Our relationship should be between the two of us.”
PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) caught up with Albie during the unveiling of YES! 100 Most Beautiful Stars, which named him as one of the “Sizzling Hot” actors in showbiz to date.
The red-carpet event was held at Luxent Hotel in Quezon City, Tuesday night, July 11.
HAPPY LOVE LIFE. Albie went on to say that his relationship with Michelle is going strong.
She is a 20-year-old model who won Wowowin’s beauty search “Miss Wow! Gandang Filipina” last March.
“Before I have [cheated on a girlfriend] in past relationships," Albie sheepishly admitted.
But with his current ladylove, the Kapamilya actor clarified, “To this one, yeah, I am loyal.”
Asked how long he and Michelle have been in a relationship, Albie proudly replied, “Almost two years. Like, one and a half years.”
Last December 2016, Albie confirmed that he broke up with Michelle because their relationship was getting “too serious, too fast.”
But after less than a month, PEP reported that the young couple have kissed and made up as their kissing photo taken in a posh restobar in Taguig City made rounds online.

In PEP’s latest interview, Albie even described Michelle as the kind of girl he’d like to settle down with in the future.
"I see how she acts with my family. She’s very tight with my family.
"That’s a big thing for me. I like someone who gets along with my family.
“I always bring her to Sunday dinners and she goes out of town with us na.
"So, I like that she’s close to my cousins."
The Kapamilya actor also noted that Michelle has a caring personality, “And she’s good with kids and animals. So, like, that’s a good sign, di ba?”
But he made it clear that they’re both too young to think of getting married.
“Yeah, and she’s only 20. She’s a lot younger than me,” he concluded.
