According to Coco, however, Xymon left the show because he wanted to go back to school.

“Gusto kasi mag-aral nung bata. Kami naman po naiintindihan namin. Siyempre po, kami priority namin ‘yung bata, na maalagaan sila. Like kunyari po sina Paquito, kahit nagtatrabaho sila, nakakapag-aral pa rin sila,” Coco said, as quoted by ABS-CBN News.

But the actor said Xymon is free to go back anytime he chooses to do so.

“Kaya nga kung mapapansin niyo naka-open naman siya. Naka-open ‘yung kuwento na ‘yon,” Coco added.
