Just a friendly reminder not to believe everything you see on social media. Thai singer-actor Mike Angelo totally shocked everyone when he broke down on camera and revealed that he is suing his ex, Sarah Casinghini. Contrary to the happy behind the scenes photos he usually shares on social media of himself with son Maxwell, it doesn’t seem like all is well on the home front.
The star of the Thai version of the popular Kdrama Full House has already filed a lawsuit against his ex-girlfriend and the mother of his child Maxwell for keeping him away and has also talked about filing for joint custody in yesterday’s interview. According to what he has shared, he has been trying to contact Sarah multiple times in the past to visit with his son but has been denied the opportunity every time.
Just a few days ago, Mike Angelo penned a very personal message on social media emphasizing he doesn’t have any intention of taking Max away from his mum. All he asks for is for them to jointly raise their son. He also shares that he wants to be named as Maxwell’s legal father on his birth certificate, something Sarah wanted to wait to do until Maxwell is old enough to decide whether he wants Mike to do so.
The couple had already broken up but DNA testing proves that Mike is his father. Having already given his ex almost ten million baht to raise their son and maintain a lifestyle, Mike says he doesn’t want to be a dad that merely pays for everything. “I want to be present in every stage of his life. I want to see him grow up and to give him as much of my time as I possibly can.”
Career in China
In recent years, Mike Angelo has developed a small reputation in China where he’s trying hard to build a career. It’s reported that each time he shoots a project, he will mark the script in three languages and stays up until the wee hours of the morning learning his lines. His dedication seems to have paid off, with him landing roles in some Chinese dramas like My Amazing Boyfriend 2 and Wu Xin: The Monster Killer.
However, with COVID-19 throwing a damper on everything, the actor claims he practically has no income. With very few opportunities let alone for foreign artistes, he now has no choice but to dip into his savings to pay for Sarah and Maxwell’s expenses which amount to around 100,000 baht (roughly 20,000 RMB) a month. He said that in order to save up, he doesn’t even dare to eat out in a restaurant, and yet the heartbreaking part is that he can’t even see his son.
Sarah sounds like a selfish bitch who seeks attention and money. Mike should take Sarah to court, and sort everything out so Mike can get joint custody and be able to see his son. life is short, and max is growing everyday.
Be careful shaming someone before learning what the other side has to say. As far I know he wasn’t an eager father at the beginning. So, nothing is black white especially not when it comes to former couples.
I confess I’m a bit shocked by the alimony amount. It such a high sum normal in Asia?
From the beginning, I thought Mike was slightly in the wrong because he asked for a paternity test, and the other surrounding rumors regarding this scandal then. Despite Mike having not been as “enthused” from the beginning, he still showed that he has been a good father since then. He did state the reasons why he asked for a paternity test and etc. They had already broken up before she told him about her pregnancy too, so now I don’t see what’s wrong with why he was weary at first either. If you have heard the demands Sarah requested from Mike, it’s ridiculous too. Also, her reasons for not wanting Mike to have any custody or have his name on the child’s certificate (not the birth certificate) is quite ridiculous too. Mike wants to make sure that the son gets to inherit his assets in the future by having his name on the child certificate. Sarah said she doesn’t want to go through the hassle of having to ask Mike for permission when it comes to traveling. The thing is that because Mike has been a father who’s been very involved in the child’s life and also doing his part by paying child support. I believe he has every right concerning the child too. Sarah’s side is pretty sketchy right now too, but the rumor regarding her wanting her bf to be a donor and being a single mother of two is still up in the air as of current. She’s also living in Mike’s relative’s condo rent free with her boyfriend and nanny, who is a cousin. Like, ok? She barely does any work now, and she has used their son for monetary gains. Mike has not. Mike had asked Sarah to move to a much more affordable home that’s also closer to their son’s school, because he’s not financially stable right now due to the pandemic. Instead of trying to understand him, she assumed he doesn’t want to pay them a cent. Mike really does not have much work to begin with after GM disbanded, especially since the last few years since the scandal. Even it’s still hard to make money working outside of Thailand. Sarah had gained the upper hand from the past years, because Mike was quiet about the whole situation to protect (both him and) the child. With society seeing how Mike’s been a good father for the past 6 years, he has everyone’s support now to gain some custody over his son. I’m not protecting Mike, because I’m not a fan of his like that. I just believe what I have seen from the first day of the scandal to now.
Also, netizens are digging up her past interview and she’s currently being bashed for the things she’s said in those interviews. For example, she’s willing to do whatever it takes to make sure her child lives a good future and not have to work in an office. Nothing wrong with wanting a good future for your child, but the way she said it was offensive as if working in an office is a a low-class job. Many blue collar workers are upset by her statement. Now people are fairly convinced Sarah is doing whatever it takes to make sure she and her child(ren) are living a luxurious life. I mean, she could’ve gone for a hi-so in Thailand or something. They usually have more money than a model or actor does but whatever floats her boat.
i don’t know enough about either party to make judgements about who is right or wrong in this situation but if he is serious then he needs to take this to a good family lawyer and the courts rather than social media.
I don’t know enough about both of them. However, I think he should drop the lawsuit. His career was in China, and pretty sure after Corona Virus, he would probably want to stay in China since he has built up a career there. Since the son has been with the Mom since birth, he should just pay her the Child Support and visit when he has time. It is hard on the child, when the father is here one day and gone the next for a long time as well as confusing. I hope he is putting his child’s need before his. Given his initial reaction to hearing he was a father, it definitely gave me a bad impression of him and I couldn’t see him with out thinking of what he put the his Baby’s mom through.
It sounded like his ex was also a previous model, that obviously had to cut her career short for the baby. The were both so young when they had the kid. Hoping that the kid grows up well.
I get what you mean, but I do not think that he plans to live in China forever. Work? Yes. Live? Probably a big fat no because Thailand is his home. At the end of the day that is his child, and he has helped raise the child since birth whenever he had the child. The problem is that he can’t just pay child support and see the child whenever he can. The mother is basically forbidding him from seeing the child now. Mike isn’t asking for much but to ask for a bit more opportunity to see and raise his child too. Besides, you cannot blame Mike for cutting the mother’s career short because it takes two to tango.
Also, Mike only took it to social media (which he stated that he wish he never had to had the court not denied his request) because he wants to see his child too. He stated a lot of reasons and spilled everything from his side in his interview.
Mike has already paid more than 2 million yuan over past six years to support his son since he was born but never told social media. Sara did not work at all but had luxurious lifestyle shown on Instagram while claiming herself a single mom. The rumor is that Sara actually has two or three children of her own, each from different fathers so Mike needs to file the lawsuit against her to prevent her bring his son to other guy. When the reporter asked her if Maxwell is her only child, she couldn’t answer the question. Afterward, she posted the clip that show Maxwell said “if daddy loves me why did he kick me out off our apartment ?” The child at this age cannot speak like this himself unless someone give him the idea.
Sara is giving a new meaning of Single Mom which means kid lives with me, you pay for him (and my new family), I don’t have to do anything but hiring nanny and driver.
Wait for a child to decide whether he wants his father to be his father legally? I don’t know any more about this affair, but that alone… it’s either stupid excuse or the world has really gone mad.
In my opinion. After just reading this Sarah is in the wrong. Mike is the father of Maxwell and has been paying for his expenses since he about him. Yet Sarah denies Maxwell from seeing Mike for what? I think it might be because she is insecure. Insecure that Maxwell might like Mike more than her. But Mike has also been in the wrong. Why did he allow Sarah to have full Custody over Maxwell while he just payed for Maxwell’s expenses. He and Sarah should have just come to a mutual agreement not fight over custody in public. What will happen to the child? This is their family matter. All I have to say is solve this peacefully don’t harm the child in anyway
