MANILA -- Jason Abalos appealed to his followers not to judge his girlfriend Vickie Rushton, after she expressed her disappointment with the actor while inside the "Pinoy Big Brother" house.
In his official Instagram account, Abalos posted a photo of the model-beauty queen as he thanked those who expressed their support and love for him.
He also stressed that is trying to understand Rushton, given the dynamics of being in a reality TV show.
"Masakit para sa akin ang nangyayari pero mas nasasaktan ako sa mga panghuhusga niyo kay Vickie. Sinusubukan namin siya intindihin ng pamilya niya na lubos na nakakakilala sa kanya. Unawain sana natin na nasa mundo sila ngayon na hindi rin natin naiintindihan ang mga nangyayari," he wrote in the caption.
"Madami pa siya pinagdadaanang problema. Mas makakadagdag pa sa kanya ang malalaman niya na hinuhusgahan siya. Nakikiusap po ako ipagdasal na lang natin sila kesa kung ano-ano po ang sinasabi natin. Mas kailangan nila 'yan. Hindi natin alam kung ano ang pakiramdam sa loob ng PBB house," he continued.
Last week, Rushton told fellow housemates Fourth Pagotan and Cheridel Alejandrino that she and Abalos almost broke up several times before she joined "PBB."
While stressing that she still loves Jason, Rushton appeared hesitant to say if she is still happy with their relationship.
Pagotan and Alejandrino, who have both been teasing Rushton with housemate Daniel Matsunaga, raised their observation that the actor-model appears to be fond of Rushton, but has been maintaining a respectful distance because of her relationship with Abalos.
"Pinoy Big Brother: All In" airs weeknights on Primetime Bida, and on Saturdays and Sundays as part of ABS-CBN's Yes! Weekend line-up. Afternoon updates are also aired via "Uber" on weekdays.
