Jessy Mendiola was obviously surprised when she learned about a tabloid report regarding her bounced check for the monthly payment of her newly purchased van. Rumor has it that a certain car loan company had a hard time looking for the young actress at her Fairview residence and even at ABS-CBN. But Jessy was quick to say that there’s no truth to such allegations. “Hindi po ako sa Fairview nakatira. [At] if ever naman pupuntahan nila ako sa ABS-CBN, siguro naman kapag na-contact nila handler ko, yung handler ko naman magsasabi. Hindi naman po totoo yun. Definitely not true. Takot ako sa mga ganyan e,” she stressed.
While it’s true that she has a new van, Jessy said that she always makes her monthly payment on time. “Ang weird naman. Sana kung meron man tinalbugan na tseke, sana sa akin naman nakarating, ako yung kinausap. Kasi if ever naman na may tatalbog hindi naman po ako tatakbo. At saka I always make sure na walang tatalbog na tseke sa akin. I mean, I am paying [for] a car but I make sure I’m always on time kasi tita ko naman nagha-handle ng finances ko sa car. Minsan nga mas early pa e, five to ten days earlier than the deadline. Yun lang.”
At any rate, Jessy reiterated that she can easily be reached through her Star Magic handler or road manager should there be any concerns related to her. “My handler and road manager are always there in ABS-CBN. And if ever there is a problem with my checks or anything sa bank, sana sinabi nila para ma-relay sa akin ng bank. Pero so far wala po.”
