Dolphy Jr. Asks Forgiveness From Zsa Zsa, Dad

MANILA, Philippines - Rodolfo Quizon Jr, more famously known as Dolphy Jr., admitted that he had a falling out with his father's partner of 23 years, Zsa Zsa Padilla, only a few weeks ago.

According to the former actor turned evangelist, this was because of what he construed, at the time, to be Padilla's decision to prepare for the comedian's demise even when he was still alive.

He cited one particular instance when he overheard Padilla already ordering the suits that she intended for his father to wear when he's laid in his coffin.

''Hindi ko kasi siya maintindihan 'nung may sakit na si Daddy, nagpi-prepare siya ng isusuot... Parang, 'Nagmamadali ba siyang mamatay ang daddy ko?''' Dolphy Jr. shared in a speech delivered during the necrological rites for The Comedy King held on Thursday at the Heritage Park.

Apparently, Dolphy Jr. thought Padilla was simply being indifferent about his father's plight. In the end, however, he thanked Padilla for all her efforts and asked for her forgiveness.

''Nagpapasalamat ako kay Zsa Zsa, kahit nagkaroon kami ng misunderstanding,'' said he, looking at the singer-actress with tears welling in his eyes. ''Sa pamilya, hindi po mabubuo kung may mga tampo o poot. Kaya ine-encourage ko po kayo, habang buhay pa sila, humingi kayo ng tawad sa daddy n'yo, sa mommy n'yo. Kaya humihingi ako ng tawad sa 'yo, Zsa Zsa.''

In the same speech, Dolphy Jr. also asked forgiveness from his dad.

'''Patawarin mo na kami, ano mang mga kahihiyan ang naidulot namin,'' he said, adding, ''Kung ano man ang pagkukulang mo sa amin, pinapatawad ka na namin.'''

Dolphy Jr. is one of the Comedy King's sons with former actress Engracia (Gracia) Dominguez. As actor, Dolphy Jr. appeared in several films produced by his father in the '70s. He admitted to getting into drugs in a past interview with The 700 Club. He was incarcerated in the early '80s after being convicted in an arson case filed by film producer Vic del Rosario. He was sentenced with life imprisonment.

According to Dolphy Jr., he renewed his faith in the Lord while in prison.

Then-president Joseph Estrada pardoned him in 1998, allowing him to formally embark on a career as a preacher for former presidential candidate Eddie Villanueva's Jesus Is Lord Movement.

Last year, he reinvigorated his acting career by appearing in ''Babaeng Hampaslupa.''
