Jake Ejercito Says He Is Not Using Andi Eigenmann For His Father's Political CampaignJake Ejercito denies using Andi Eigenmann for his father's political ambitions.
Ejercito's father, former President Joseph Estrada, is running for mayor of Manila in the coming May elections.
“Marami ang nagsasabing nagkabalikan kami… actually, may nagsasabi na ginagamit lang namin siya, for the campaign season—kaya kami nagkakausap ulit just for political purposes."
“Pero I wanna say na… I mean, hindi naman sa pagyayabang, to set things straight, when my dad ran for President, halos walang tulong ng mga artista."
Ejercito is currently in the country to help in his father's campaign. He is studying in London.
He said they have never focused their campaign on using showbiz personalities.
Ejercito also denied getting back with Eigenmann, but said that they remained friends even after the breakup.
Eigenmann is supposedly helping Estrada with his campaign in Manila. Estrada will go against Manila Mayor Fred Lim.
Ejercito said he is grateful to Eigenmann for helping his father. He also extended his gratitude to her parents, Mark Gil and Jaclyn Jose.
He didn't want to discuss why he and Eigenmann never got back together, only saying that they decided to just remain friends.
They have been friends since they were babies, Ejercito added, so it's difficult for them to just forget the friendship.
He is not closing his doors yet on the possibility of getting back together with the actress.
"But as of now po talaga… kasi I have one more year left, e, sa London, so siguro titingnan na lang natin when the time comes."
Ejercito is not dating anyone.
“Hindi ko na iniintindi ang puso ko ngayon, e, busy lang talaga ako ngayon."
He prefers to focus on his father's campaign.
Ejercito will be going back to London in May to finish his course in political science and business management.
When he was still a child, he used to dream of being an actor. But now, he is more focused on politics.
He wanted to spend time in his father's campaign since he wants to learn the ropes of politics here.
If he ever decides to enter politics, Ejercito said he will start from being a barangay captain or councilor.
But if he will be given a chance to be in showbiz, Ejercito revealed that he wants to be paired with Heart Evangelista--his childhood crush.
