Psychologist weighs in on Freddie-Maegan rift

MANILA - Controversial singer Freddie Aguilar and his daughter, Maegan Aguilar, need the help of a mediator to settle their differences, a psychologist said.

Freddie and Maegan made headlines again recently after the latter lambasted the "Anak" singer for being a bad father.

According to Maegan, Freddie threw her and his grandchildren out of their house because of rotten vegetables. Maegan was also blaming her father's teen wife for their falling out.

"Sa problemang ito, of course mayroon silang pinaninindigang point of view nila at hindi sila nagkakaintindihan. Siguro ang kailangan dito ay mediator or arbiter kasi both are standing up for their own views," psychologist Randy Dellosa said in an interview on "Umagang Kay Ganda" on Friday.

Dellosa also believes that a big factor in the misunderstanding is Freddie and Maegan's similar set of interests and characteristics.

"Dahil celebrity sila and, of course, marami ang nakakaalam ng problema, lahat parang nakikisawsaw sa problema, so nagiging complicated. Pero sa totoo lang, kahit walang sumali eh talagang complicated na individuals sila," he said.

"'Yung pag-aaway nila ngayon ay icing lang on the cake. Kung baga, ito ay nangyari lang ngayon, pero actually 'yung roots nito ay way back pa," he added.

In the end, Dellosa advised Freddie and Maegan to spend some time away from each other for now.

"Well it seems like at this time ay walang maggi-give in, pareho silang galit. Nasa height sila or peak ng galit. So it will take some time bago sila mag-try na magkaintindihan. Pero feeling ko probably it will be Maegan who will make the move," he said.

Freddie remains mum on the issue while Maegan has maintained that she is cutting her ties with her father.
