Patrick Garcia has admitted that things aren’t well between him and his ex-girlfriend, TV host-actress Jennylyn Mercado, who is also the mother of his son, Alex Jazz.

During a recent press conference, the actor admitted that it has been a while since he last saw his son because he had been unable to support him financially.

“Few months ago, when I was taping for the show, siyempre wala pang pumapasok na pera,” he was quoted as saying in an article on “We had open connection naman first na understand na lang when my money comes in, dun ako magbibigay ng suporta kay Jazz. E, wala pa, intindihin mo naman, di ba (A few months ago, when I was taping for the show, of course there wasn’t any money coming in yet. We had open connections at first, and it was understood that I will give financial support to Jazz when my money comes in. But there wasn’t anything yet, is that so hard to understand?)?”

However, Jennylyn declined to comment on Patrick’s statements, choosing to let her manager, Becky Aguila, do the talking for her.

“Whatever personal conflicts or financial issues you may have with Jennylyn, it should be discussed in private for Jazz's sake,” read the statement, which was published on “It doesn't matter how much financial assistance you give to your child and how easy it is for you and your mom to flaunt it in public because, by the end of the day, what is most important is the quality of relationship you have with your child, and that starts with giving respect to the mother of your son who by the way is trying her very best to raise your son in a healthy environment despite the negative effects of your publicised comments.”
