MANILA, Philippines - Young actor Ejay Falcon has brushed off speculation that he got a non-celebrity girl from Mindoro pregnant.
Rumor also has it that the woman is now threatening to sue him for abandoning her.
In his interview with “SNN: Showbiz News Ngayon,” Falcon branded these rumors as baseless. The young actor also defended himself by saying he can never leave a pregnant woman behind.
“Hindi ko po talaga gagawin yon. Hindi naman ako gaya ni Gabby (Falcon's character in the defunct television series “Katorse”) na kung may nabuntis ay iiwan niya. Si Ejay po ako at pananagutan ko ‘yon. Pero ngayon, wala pa talaga at wala pa sa isip ko ‘yon,” Falcon stressed.
The 20-year-old star, who grew up in the municipality of Pola, Oriental Mindoro, rose to fame after he was proclaimed Pinoy Big Brother Teen Edition Plus' grand winner in 2008. His first big television break came in 2009 when he was paired with Erich Gonzales in “Katorse.”
Falcon’s second major TV show is "Tanging Yaman," which is currently being aired on ABS-CBN.
