Ai-Ai delas Alas feels her son Sancho is vindicated after he won the case filed against a convenience store employee.
Sancho and his camp filed a complaint in May 2008 against Melvin Buceta for the Violation of Anti-Child Abuse Act (RA 7610). Buceta allegedly detained and verbally abused Sancho who was accused of stealing in a convenience store.
“Bilang ina, napakasakit sa akin noon kasi hindi ko naman pinalaki ang anak ko nilang barumbado. Iyon lang ang mapapagmalaki ko sa buong Pilipinas at buong mundo na pinalaki ko ng maayos ang anak ko,” Ai-Ai said in an interview on “The Buzz” on Sunday, August 6.
Accusations that her son is “spoiled” and “magnanakaw” hurt Ai-Ai.
“Pinalaki ko ng maayos, tapos sasabihin niyong magnanakaw, spoiled, lahat na ng masasakit. Ayan at least makikita niyo na na maayos ang pagpapalaki ko sa mga anak ko,” she explained.
And now, Ai-Ai is grateful they survived the ordeal.
“Nagpasalamat ako sa Diyos at kay Mama Mary. Sabi ko, ‘Lord, salamat at tapos na rin yung hirap namin, kasi hindi rin naman biro talaga.’ Unang-una, ang dami naming humbling experience.”
Sancho shares the same sentiment, and adds that it just proves his innocence.
“Happy ako at gumaan ang pakiramdam ko na at least alam ng mga naninira na ito yung pagpapatunay na hindi talaga ako magnanakaw,” he said.
Ai-Ai kept mum on rumors she and her non-showbiz boyfriend got married in the US.
“Pwede bang sumagot ako ng diumano’y ‘no comment’? Nahihirapan ako kasing sagutan iyan, maraming factors. Tsaka ko na lang ipapaliwanag,”Ai-Ai said.
