MANILA, Philippines – Controversial actress Iwa Moto, the 23-year old former “StarStruck” First Princess, just recently aadmitted to PEP her ongoing romantic relationship with Pampi Lacson, the estranged husband of actress Jodi Sta. Maria.
Lacson and Sta. Maria are in the process of annulling their marriage. They have a son, Thirdy.
Prior, Moto was in a relation with Mickey Ablan and Leandro Munoz—both single fathers.
In the PEP interview, Moto candidly related how her relationship with Lacson started, saying that they have simply grown closer with each other since two years ago, because of some “trouble.”
“Actually, si Pampi kasi, two years ago, nagkakausap kami nang matagal. As in, palagi kaming nagkakausap dati,” she said.
“Basta nagkaroon ng trouble before na konektado siya, " she added. "Tapos ang ending namin, kami na ang naging close. Dati, kung mag-usap kami no’n, inaabot kami ng three hours sa telepono. As in, parang phone pal ito.”
She admitted that she and Lacson were already seeing each other, albeit in friendly dates, even while she was still officially with Munoz.
“Noong nasa States si Lee [Leandro], lumalabas kami ni Pampi as friends,” she said.
“Eventually, ‘yung friendship namin, nauwi sa dating. Tapos noong bumalik nga si Lee, medyo naguluhan ako sa feelings ko. Siyempre, mahal ko si Lee. Sa akin naman, lumalabas-labas lang [kami]. Hanggang sa umalis si Lee. Nandiyan [pa din] si Pampi. He never left. Nasa tabi ko lang siya palagi. Hanggang sa ‘yun," she added.
According to Moto, Lacson is a nice guy.
“’Yung mga naririnig ng iba na tsismis about him and his family, sobrang hindi totoo. Ako na mismo ang magsasabi na… doon lang ako makakakita ng taong sobrang down to earth. Sobrang haba ng pasensiya. Lahat sila mababait," she said.
Asked if she sees a recurring pattern in her consistently dating men with children in the past few years, Moto was mildly surprised.
“Oo nga," said she, quickly rationalizing that this might be because she is naturally fond of kids.
“Alam naman ng lahat na mahilig ako sa bata at bata pa lang ako, nag-aalaga na ako ng bata," she explained.
“Right now, I’m planning to adopt. ‘Yung magkaroon ako ng sariling anak. ‘Yun naman talaga ang gusto ko. May inaalagaan ako,” she added.
Moto admitted that she hasn’t exactly talked to Sta. Maria about the matter.
“Hindi ko naman siguro siya kailangang kausapin, ‘di ba? May kanya-kanya naman kaming buhay. May kanya-kanya na rin silang buhay,” she said.
But she admitted that Sta. Maria knows about the relationship already.
“Nagkita kami once noong sinundo niya si Thirdy. Kasi, hati sila sa custody ng bata. Noong sinundo niya si Thirdy, wala, nag-tinginan lang kami. No hi, no hello," she shared.
And Moto doesn’t care. “Basta ako, wala naman akong ginagawang masama ngayon, ‘di ba?"
She also said, "Ako, inaalagaan ko ang mga taong nagmamahal sa akin ngayon. At
sa ngayon, ang nagmamahal sa akin, si Pampi at ‘yung anak niya. Ngayon, kung may problema si Jodi do’n, wala akong magagawa.”
