Liezl Sicangco is questioning ex-husband Robin Padilla’s and new wife Mariel Rodriguez’s claim that they took care of Sicangco’s children Ali, 10 and Kylie, 16, reports In a text message sent to on September 27,Sicangco said, "Akala ko ba inaalagaan ni Mariel si Ali? Bakit may kuto at ang daming lisa ni Ali? Kailangan tanggalin ko lahat kasi hindi siya allowed pumasok sa school; pauuwiin siya. Naku, pinagmalaki pa nila na inaalagaan si Ali.

(I thought Mariel was taking care of Ali, but why does Ali have head lice? I had to remove them all so he will be allowed to attend school. They were even so proud to say that they were taking care of Ali.)."

According to, Sicangco, mother of Padilla’s four children (Queenie, 18; Kylie, 16; Zhen-Zhen, 14; and Ali, 10) discovered that her son Ali had head lice when the child arrived in Australia on September 20. Sicangco complained last August that Padilla lacked time for their children because of his then rumored girlfriend, Rodriguez.

Entertainment Live and Pilipinas Win na Win! host Rodriguez sent the contact number of Nini Hidalgo, who, Rodriguez said, is "in charge of Ali’s personal hygiene." Hidalgo told that in the five months that she took care of Ali, it was only this September when she discovered that Ali had head lice. According to Hidalgo, Ali jogs daily at the Quezon City Memorial Circle (QCMC) and sometimes plays in their house with street children. Hidalgo added that the ten-year-old son of Padilla and Sicangco takes a bath thrice a day.

Padilla and Sicangco were married for more than 20 years before they divorced in 2007. Padilla and Rodriguez were married in India on August 19.
