Diego Loyzaga on rumored rift with Cesar Montano:'At the end of the day, my dad and I know the truth


082511-diego_main.jpgStill a newbie in showbiz, Diego Loyzaga is already facing serious intrigues that spring from having famous parents like Cesar Montano and Teresa Loyzaga. Though only sixteen, Diego bravely answered pressing questions regarding the alleged rift between him and his father. He told reporters during the press conference of his new show entitled Growing Up, “Para lang pinalaki ng ibang tao ang issues namin. Sa totoo lang, ang liit-liit na bagay na pinalaki na dinagdagan pa. Bahala na sila, basta kami we're okay. At the end of the day, my dad and I know the truth.”

After spending many years in Australia, Diego asked his mother if they could return to the Philippines so he could try his luck in showbiz. He made his acting debut in Mara Clara with Kathryn Bernardo and Julia Montes who are again his co-stars in Growing Up.

Diego denied that his mother forced him to join showbiz and that his father was very disappointed because of his decision. “I just want to make it clear na hindi ang nanay ko ang pumilit para pumasok ako sa show business, desisyon ko ‘yun. Ang dad ko naman, hindi sa ayaw niya akong pumasok sa showbiz, ang gusto niya kasi mag-workshop daw muna ako bago mag-Mara Clara.”

The teen actor further dismissed the claim that he insisted his father should get him a condominium unit. He only revealed that his dad bought him a car which he can drive whenever he goes to school and tapings. As to why he moved out of his father’s house and moved in with his aunt Bing Loyzaga, Diego explained that it was because his mother figured it was the practical choice. “Si Tita Bing assures me na may titirhan ako sa kanila, may sasakyan sila. Malapit ang school ko sa kanila. ‘Yun kasing pinsan ko, anak ni Tita Bing, pareho kami ng school, dun ako tumira sa kanila. Si Tita Bing ang nagsabi na tumira na lang ako sa kanila kasi ang layo ng school ko sa bahay nila Daddy.”

Diego went on to dismiss the speculations that this sparked a feud between his parents. Though Cesar and Teresa already have their own lives, Diego said that the two still try to be on good terms. “’Yung relationship ng Mommy at Daddy ko, divorced naman sila, you cannot really see them like a married couple. Talagang nagpapasalamat ako sa Mommy at Daddy ko. Even my mom is in Australia and my dad is here, they really make time to talk to each other for me, for my sake. Naawa nga ako sa nanay at tatay ko, nafi-feel ko na gusto nilang maging okay, pero pilit nang pilit ang mga tao na may problema sila. They're both very happy at sana matapos na ang mga intriga.”
