All these years, Ysabel Ortega and Lito Lapid still have not patched things up between them.
In an interview on the late night talk show “Tonight With Boy Abunda” yesterday, May 2, the star-in-the-making confirmed that she and her father no longer communicate. Talking about the action star, she couldn’t hold back her tears when she revealed that she doesn’t have direct contact with him.

But despite all this, Ysabel still sees to it to message his father every now and then, especially on his birthdays. Of course, along with this was her longtime wish to get reunited with him when the right time comes.
Notwithstanding their differences, the daughter had only good things to say towards Lito.
“I still have love for him. And I still respect him as my dad. And he’s one of the reasons as to why I joined show business because I look up to him. He’s one of my role models. And I’m very proud to have him as my father.”
Asked what her message to her father is, Ysabel — still overwhelmed by her emotions — said that she will always be there for their dad.
“Papa, if you’re watching, I really miss you and nandito lang po ako. And no matter what happens, I will always be here and I will always be your daughter. I will always love you and I will always have respect for you.”
The 19-year-old’s last words about her dad are what moved just about every Kapamilya viewer.
“I hope he’s proud of who I am… hopefully, what I will be.”
