Aiko, pinupukol ng 'third-party' issue, BF, to the rescue

Kapamilya actress Aiko Melendez has recently been the target of allegations that she’s a third party to her boyfriend Subic, Zambales Mayor Jay Khonghun and his “legal” wife Eloisa Lopez Recella.

A Facebook post by Elsa Layda Recella introduced Mayor Jay’s wife to the public, proudly sharing that Eloisa is her niece and comes from a family of public servants.

This spurred people to comment on Aiko’s Instagram posts of her vacation pictures with the mayor in New York City, accusing of her ruining their marriage.

In light of these accusations, Mayor Jay has given a statement to the entertainment site Fashion Pulis (http://www.fashionpulis.com/2018/06/mayor-jay-khonghun-speaks-up-regarding.html) to clear the issue.

His message stressed that he and his wife Eloisa were already separated before he began a relationship with the “Bagani” actress. He clarified that keeping the legal process of their separation from the public was a decision he and Eloisa made to protect their child from intrigue.

Mayor Jay called for people to stop dragging his new lady love into this issue and apologized to Aiko for the negative treatment she’s been receiving.

The 42-year-old actress stands strong in light of these accusations, having posted a photo of herself with her beau just yesterday, June 18, to prove that they aren’t shaken.

Aiko and Mayor Jay are currently vacationing in the US with the latter’s family, notably with his father Zambales Congressman Jeffrey Khonghun and his sister Jaq.
