Kier thanked Gretchen for defending him through an Instagram post. He also aired his thoughts on Dani's controversial statements in an interview by Ambet Nabus of Abante.
“Ngayon ko lang sasabihin ito not make her or them look bad, pero lagi lang akong nandiyan. Nu’ng mga times na naglalayas siya sa nanay niya, sa akin siya tumitira. Nu’ng nasa mama (Mommy Hershey Legaspi) ko pa kami nakatira, dun din siya naglalagi at nakasama niya kami ng mama ko sa paglaki niya. So, nagtataka ako kung saan nanggaling itong para akong stranger sa buhay niya?” Kier revealed.
He also admitted having a not so perfect father-daughter relationship but he was a father to her.
“There were even times when I tried to reach out to her, at nakaiskedyul na kaming magkita, pero siya itong magka-cancel o magba-back out dahil meron siyang ibang gagawin o pupunta siya sa Cebu for work, mga ganu’ng incidents,” Legaspi added.
Despite the hurtful thingd said to him, the actor remained true to his words in his message for his daughter. “I have but still love for her. Anak ko siya at alam kong alam niya ang totoo sa tunay na nangyayari.”
