“Film” Rathapoom Tohkongsub held a press conference today to clarify the outburst of rumours accusing him to be the father of Annie Brook’s baby.
In his statement to the press, Film reveals his intention to seek genetic DNA testing to rule out whether or not he is the biological father.
“As published in the various newspaper, I’m here to clarify the news and to explain the situation. If you ask whether or not me and the girl know each other, yes we do. We dated at one stage but we were never boyfriend and girlfriend.We were together during filming for ‘Peesart San Kol, about a year ago”
“Then some time later on she called me to tell me that she was 3-4 months pregnant. At the time I admit I was shocked. I discussed the situation with my family, my mom and my brother and all my close friends. My mother told me that I should help, regardless of whether or not I am the father, we can worry about that later”
“I don’t know what to say to the female party. I’m a guy, if I say anything I might hurt her feelings. So that’s why me and my family decided to help her out first in the early stages. We gave her 200,000 baht to cover her expenses in the beginning”
“I don’t want to give away too much details because it might offend the female party”

“My family have been supporting her the whole time. If you ask why I sent her the money, it was because I thought of her as a friend in need. And I felt sorry for her because of her situation”
“My family and I have not neglected her, after she gave birth to the child we have been sending her money on a monthly basis. On the news, some sources said that I missed some payments. Every source has a different story, for now we’ll just have to wait. For something like this, we will need to wait for verification. Right now I am waiting for it also”
“The other party is confident that I am the child’s father, but I don’t know. If you ask if I don’t believe that I’m the father, well I feel like I’m confused. But I have to help her first”
“At this stage, I’m in the process of getting proof. I should get a DNA test very soon and if the baby turns out to be mine. I will be more than happy to take responsibility. As for getting married, that’s up to the future, but it’s a very sensitive topic, for me and for the girl”
When you were in a relationship with “Annie”, were you intimately involved?
“I don’t want to say too much because I feel bad for the girl. When I heard she was pregnant, my mother and my manager talked to her. My mother went to her as soon as I told her the news. I myself have spoken to her about it.She was probably shocked too”
“When the baby was born, we all went to see him, it happened a long time ago. I don’t know why the news only just came out. I didn’t hide anything, I was waiting for the right time and I was in the process of a lot of things. In the past I did the best that I could by sending my family over to support her. Everyone felt sorry for her”
Film apologizes to his fans
“I believe my fans will understand. I came out here to tell you about this because I am filled with sincerity. The first thing I want to do is apologize to my fans and everybody. I know this is a very sensitive issue and I will deal with it to the best of my ability. I care very much about my fans feelings and I will continue to take care of the situation”
“As for my career…I believe we are still waiting for verification. I’m prepared to accept the truth if the child is in fact mine. Hea Hoh (RS Promotion Executive) has given me advice and support and so far the situation has no impact on my plans to to work in Korea. But we will have to wait and see what the future holds”
