Pokwang, hihingi parin ng sustento kay Lee O’Brian kahit na naka-deport na ito

Comedian Pokwang shared her reaction to the deportation of her ex-partner, Lee O’Brian.

On April 11, Lee was deported by the Bureau of Immigration (BI) after his motion for reconsideration on the complaint filed by Pokwang was denied.

Last year, Pokwang asked the government to deport Lee as he worked in the country without proper documents.

In an interview with 24 Oras, Pokwang expressed relief after Lee – who reportedly dating another woman, finally left the Philippines.

“Meron tayong batas na sinusunod, syempre nagkaroon tayo ng paglabag sa batas so kailangan nating sundin kung ano [yung mga parusa],” said Pokwang. “Kasi tayo nga sa ibang bansa ‘yung mga OFW natin sumunod,” 

Pokwang said that despite the deportation order, she would still demand Lee to provide child support to their child, Malia.

“Kailangan ‘yon, bilang magulang kailangan nating suportahan… Hindi naman ginusto ng bata na isilang siya, so may responsibilidad po tayo sa mga anak natin lalo na sa ganyang edad,” she said.

“Bilang ama, responsibilidad niya rin ‘yon. Karapatan ng bata ‘yon,” she added.

Pokwang clarified that she was still willing to let Lee see Malia if her daughter asked her, despite the American actor being barred from visiting the Philippines due to his inclusion on the immigration blacklist.

As of writing, Lee has yet to give a statement on the order against him.
