According to Aiko, she would often tell her family and relatives not to get into trouble since she would not bail them out, "Kasi pag mali kayo, mali kayo.

"Pagbayaran mo yan. Wag kang mangaagrabyado ng ibang tao, but at the end po, binail out ko po siya. Then he got hospitalized, di kami nagusap for so long.
"Pero syempre, bilang ate po, di ko po matitiis yan. Ayoko pong mag-brag tita pero since natanong niyo po, hindi ko po iniwan ang kapatid ko.
"Ako po nag-settle nung ospital niya, he almost died, kasi he had a heart attack kasi he's into many medications," Aiko revealed.
