In a recent guesting on Mars, veteran actress Jackie Lou Blanco set the record straight about being kidnapped when she was just a year old. When asked whether the kidnapping really did occur, Jackie Lou said:
“I was kidnapped by my own father. Hiwalay na sila ng mom ko tapos supposed to be kukunin niya ako [on] that day dahil nag-New Year’s Eve with Pilita [Corrales] ‘yung mom ko. Fliny na niya ako [and stayed with him] for one month in the States.”
Since she was an infant when it happened, she has no recollection of the events. She shared that her mother never stopped trying to get her back.
“Through the NBI nalaman na I was kidnapped. She was in NBI every day, tina-track saan na [kami]. NBI baby daw ako.”
She recalled that she was already in her teens when she discovered the shocking truth behind her kidnapping at the hands of her own father.
“When I was siguro about 12 [or] 13 [years old], sinabi na sa akin ng mom ko that this is what happened. She showed me all the clippings na nakahandusay siya sa airport kasi nakikita niya na lumilipad na ‘yung eroplano [at] wala na ako. Nakakaloka!”
Jackie Lou Blanco also shared that, as a mother, she would be devastated if her child was taken from her.
“Can you imagine for a mother? I would die!”
