Kobe and Andre Paras, teenage sons of former actress Jackie Forster, have rebuffed their biological mother’s latest appeals for them to face her.

“I don't care, kasi I'm happy with the life I have now. I have a new mom, she's better and she treats us the way that we want to, and not like what she (Forster) did to us,” 15-year-old Kobe was quoted as saying in an article on ABS-CBNNews.com.

17-year-old Andre supported Kobe’s sentiments, saying that Jackie won’t listen to their pleas for her to stop hounding them.

“We told her to stop, and what she's doing now… It's not sinking in [for] her. So 'yun, nakakainis lang talaga (It’s really annoying.). Now, she's not listening talaga,” he said.

Andre also thinks that the recent YouTube video Jackie had uploaded (a compilation of her happier moments with her two sons) was just for publicity.

“I can say it's not for us,” said he said. “It's for the public. You can tell it's for the public, because if she wants it to be for us, she could, like, send it personally.”

Their father, comedian and former basketball player Benjie Paras, also revealed that he had allowed Jackie to talk to their kids thrice after their separation a few years back. During the first two visits, Kobe and Andre had asked their mother to give them space for the time being. But on her third visit, Jackie was accompanied by a social worker from the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) who forced Kobe to go with her.

Ang sinasabi nito (Kobe) kasi is he doesn't want to go with her, na dito na lang siya, sa bago niyang mom. Ang sagot ng social worker, 'Hindi mo s'ya totoong nanay, step mom mo siya. Ito ang nanay mo, so sumama ka sa kanya (Kobe was saying that he doesn’t want to go with her, that he wants to stay with his new mom. The social worker said, ‘She's not your real mother, she’s just your stepmom. Jackie's your real mother, so you should go with her.)'” Benjie narrated, adding that Kobe had cried because of the incident.
