During a recent interview on ANC’s Headstart with Karen Davila on Thursday, Senatorial Aspirant and Actor Robin Padilla clarified his statement with regard to alleged cheating of actor Aljur Abrenica on his daughter Kylie Padilla.

In the said interview, Davila questioned Padilla’s statement last July 2021 with Ogie Diaz that it is ‘men's nature to cheat’ which quickly spread on social media, reaping mixed reactions from the public. Many criticized Padilla, saying that he was siding with his daughter’s husband on the alleged cheating issue.

"Yung gumagawa ng isyu na 'yan ay hindi niya napanood ang buong interview. Kasi kung napanood niya ang buong interview, ang sinasabi kong una, 'yung cheating na 'yan ay hindi pagnanakaw 'yan. Ang cheating tumingin ka lang sa isang babae, sa Islam kasi cheating na 'yun kahit wala kang ginawa, basta nag-isip ka, cheating na 'yon," Padilla pointed out.

He also added that it is impossible for men not to have these kind of thoughts towards other women. "Imposibleng hindi maglaro 'yan sa isip ng isang lalaki. Magdududa pa ako dito sa aking son-in-law kung hindi kailanman pumasok sa isip niya na... come on, di ba? Wow. Eh may problema ka kung hindi 'yan pumapasok sa isip mo. Hindi ko naman sinasabi na gawin mo. Hindi ko sinabi: “Sige, gawin mo. Ako bahala sa iyo”.

Padilla also addressed why he said "mag-Muslim ka," saying it was because he wanted to use himself as an example as being a Muslim changed his perspective in life. 

Padilla also further clarified that he did not mention "polygamy" instead, he wanted to deliver that if Aljur was to be a Muslim, it could change his mentality.

“Ang sinabi ko lang noon na kung ako sa kanya mag-Muslim ka kasi magbabago ang iyong mentality. Kasi sa Islam kailangan mong pakasalan, 'di ba? ... Pero hindi ko kailanman sinabi na mang-cheat tayo man,” he said.

Aljur and Kylie married in 2018, after Kylie became pregnant in 2016 during the first season of Encantadia. 

However, the couple announced their split in July 2021, Robin was first to confirm, followed by his daughter, who stated that Abrenica and her were "working on a healthy co-parenting relationship together" for their two sons.
