- There are rumors that Leila and her mom Michelle van Eimeren had a misunderstanding
- Ogie finally speaks up about the issue
During Ogie Alcasid's recent TV guesting on Tonight With Boy Abunda, he was asked if there is truth to the rumors about a misunderstanding between his ex-wife Michelle van Eimeren and daughter Leila Alcasid.
Leila who just recently signed to Star Music is currently staying with Ogie and his wife Regine Velasquez.
Tito Boy: "To be honest, totoo ba na diumano ang dahilan ng paglipat ni Leila dito sa Pilipinas ay ang hindi nila pagkakaunawaan ng kanyang ina na si Michelle?"
The singer-songwriter denied the rumors and explained what transpired when Leila decided to stay here.
"No, I don't know where that came from.. I kind of heard it but that's not true at all, they're like, para silang ano peanut butter jelly.
"They're very very close..
"In fact I'll tell you, this is how it happened.
"One day, they visited me and my daughter was crying..
"And I said what's wrong with you?
"And Michelle goes, 'eh nahihiya yan sayo kasi gusto niyang magpaalam, gusto niyang malaman if okay sayo that she stays with you.'
"Then I said, 'ha? of course, but are you serious?' then she goes, 'well i figured all those years that you weren't with your daughter this is your time now.'"
