Francis Magalona’s publicist, Pilar Mateo, said that there was no chance for Pia Magalona to spend her time addressing the revelation made by Abegail Rait.
In an interview, Pilar, who worked for the Magalona family for many years, said that she already expected Pia to keep mum on the issue.
According to her, it was really Pia’s personality not to speak on private matters, especially if it was about her family.
“Kilala ko si Pia, hindi niya papansinin ‘yung ganyang mga bagay lalo na if it concerns her family. Pia is a very feisty woman at saka talagang strong ‘yan eh. Strong siya kahit anong mangyari basta poprotektahan niya ang pamilya niya no matter what,” she said.
She also praised Pia for taking care of Francis.
“Si Francis kasi parang bata ‘yan so talagang inaalagaan siya ni Pia, lahat kami nag-aalaga sa kanya. Spoiled siya kay Pia. Very generous ‘yung couple na ‘yan,” she also said.
Pia’s silence on the issue was already noticed by the netizen, but most of them believed that she was already aware of Abegail’s existence for a long time.
It can be recalled that after 14 years after Francis’ passing, Abegail suddenly appeared in public and proclaimed herself as the former partner of the master rapper.
“For 15 years nanahimik ako, I didn’t say anything about me and my daughter. Siguro naman ito na lang ‘yung karapatan na pwede kong magawa para sa kanya (anak ko),” said Abegail.
“Kasi hindi naman ako nagsalita. I know people will judge me, but we exist. What we have is real… Mahal niya kami, and that’s a fact,” she added.
