MANILA, Philippines – Comedienne Ai Ai delas Alas on Tuesday afternoon clarified reports that the current girlfriend of her former husband Miguel Vera is not getting along well with her daughter Sofia.

Delas Alas made the statement after she decided to take her 16-year-old daughter back to the Philippines.

“Gusto ko lang i-correct 'yung lumalabas na inapi siya ng stepmom niya (sa Amerika). Hindi totoo 'yon,” she said.

“Ayaw ko nang sabihin ang nangyari doon kasi masyado ng pribado 'yon at problema ng pamilya 'yon. So ayaw ko na lang sumagot. So 'yun na lang ang iko-correct ko. Hindi 'yung stepmom ang problema,” she added.

Asked if it’s true that Sofia had problems with her father, the comedienne told “Yes, totoo yon.”

Delas Alas said Sofia is now doing good and has returned to school.

“Minor si Sofia. Walang mag-aalaga sa kanya doon so ako na lang. So dito siya magha-high school at ga-graduate at later on doon na siya magka-college sa Amerika,” she said.

Last July, delas Alas announced that her two children, Sean Nicolo, 18, and Sofia have decided to settle in the US to finish their studies and to obtain an American citizenship.

But earlier this month, delas Alas confirmed that Sofia is coming back to stay with her.
