MANILA – The mother of Jam Sebastian of the YouTube duo Jamich has finally broken her silence on her conflict with her late son’s fiancée, Mich Liggayu.

In an interview with GMA-7’s “Startalk” on Saturday, Mrs. Sebastian said she really didn’t want to say anything against Liggayu but she could no longer take her actions after her son Jam passed away.

“Ayaw sana magsalita pero sobra, grabe. Hinihingi namin sa ‘yo ang gamit. Anong sabi mo sa amin? Pag-iisipan mo. Hinihingi namin 'yung share. Ano ang ibinigay mo sa amin? Gusto mo sa ‘yo lahat. Ang anak ko naghirap din diyan. Hindi mabubuo ang Jamich kung walang Jam. Until now pinakikinabangan mo," she said.

Before Jam succumbed to lung cancer last March 4, he and Liggayu lived together. Now that her son is no longer around, Mrs. Sebastian believes she has the right to claim what rightfully belongs to him.

“Ang sabi ko, gusto ko ng breakdown ng finances ng anak ko. Hindi ako stage mother. Ni singko wala akong pinakinabangan pagkasikat ng anak ko dahil may kanya-kanya kaming buhay. This time namatay ang anak ko; ngayon, may karapatan ako,” she said.

Mrs. Sebastian also revealed that Liggayu took some of her son’s things without informing her.

“Gamit ng anak ko kinuha niyo without informing us. Nung pumunta ako doon, nandun 'yung aircon, [na] kay Jam din, wala 'yung remote, dinala nila 'yung remote. Tapos ang mga naiwan doon 'yung mga kumot, mga unan na ginamit ni Jam at 'yung hospital bed na bago, pati 'yung wheelchair niya, 'yun na lang ang natira. Binigay nila sa amin 'yung PC, walang hard drive. 'Yun lang ang remembrance ng anak ko na dapat sa amin, kinuha niyo pa,” she said.

Mrs. Sebastian also accused Liggayu of deliberately blocking any member of Jam’s family from accessing the Jamich social media accounts.

"Nung namatay ang anak ko, ang cellphone ng anak ko nasa amin. Hiniram mo kay Yexel, ano ang ginawa mo? Ni log-out mo ang Facebook, ni-log out mo ang email, ni-log out mo ang lahat. Ni-log out mo ang Jamich page. During the wake iyan, ha. Bakit? Para mawalan kami ng access? Dahil alam mo sa Jamich page pinagkakakitaan ninyo 'yan.”

"Tapos sa Google page ng anak ko ni-log out mo. Bakit? Kasi doon pumapasok ang sinusuweldo ninyo for YouTube na until now, ikaw ang nakikinabang. Sino ngayon ang mukhang pera sa aming dalawa? Sino ngayon ang mukhang pera? Sobra ng panggagamit ang ginagawa niyo sa anak ko," Mrs. Sebastian said.

Mrs. Sebastian also weighed in on rumors romantically linking Liggayu to aspiring singer Neo Domingo.

"Tuwing madaling araw na lang saan ka nagpupunta? Hindi ka natutulog sa bahay. Kung sasabihin mo na magkaibigan lang kayo, bakit mas marami ka pang time sa kanya (Neo)? Nasaan ka nung alam mo na kailangan na kailangan ka ni Jam?" she said.

In an interview with Pep.ph published March 9, Domingo spoke up about the rumored relationship, saying it was simply a case of misinterpretation. He also expressed his support for Liggayu's family.
