Claudine Barretto hopes to recover millions of pesos from ex-husband

MANILA, Philippines — Actress Claudine Barretto revealed that she’s trying to recover millions of pesos from an ex-husband.

In her interview with Luis Manzano, Claudine vowed to get back the millions of pesos for her kids. 

“We’re talking about hundreds of millions na. Ang iniwan sa akin was P25,000. Sa isang bangko pa lang was, like, P116 million. Isang bangko pa lang ‘yun. And iniwan was P25,000. And I don’t know kung bakit kahit na or whatever, dapat sinasabihan ka ng bangko, ‘di ba?” Claudine said. 

“Ang ibinalik lang niya sa akin nu’n, during that time, was P7 million. We were still together. Kasi nga, kukunin pa niya sa sino ‘yung mga pinagtaguan niya nu’ng perang ‘yun.

“Kasi, ayoko siyang matulad sa parang na, you know, ‘yung tatay ng mga anak ko magnanakaw. Ayoko, ayoko. Kaya hindi ko nilaban ‘yung pera noon.”

Claudine said that the case is now in court.

“But now na lumalaki ‘yung mga anak ko, ta’s kukunin mo ‘yung bahay, ‘yung bahay namin, du’n na, ‘yun na ‘yung sinabi ng lahat ng tao, ‘Okay. Magba-VAWC (Violence Against Women and Children) na tayo,’” she said. 

“Kukunin ko na kung ano ‘yung dapat sa akin. Mag-labasan na tayo. Sige na,” she added. 

The actress said that she needed the money now because her kids want to study abroad. 

 “Ngayon, sinc e malaki na ang mga anak ko, Sabina wants to study abroad, Santino’s in Brent and alam naman natin kung gaano kamahal ‘yun,” she said. 

“So, parang since hindi niya nabibigay ‘yung support na in-order ng court, hindi nasusunod. Parang ‘yun ‘yung sinasabi ng mama na ‘Ipaglaban mo,’” she added.

Claudine said that she’s thankful to Luis’ mother, Vilma Santos, for giving her encouraging words. 

“Talagang sabi ko, ‘Ate Vi, pabalik ako.’ So, kung may mga court cases na naman, baka makaantala ‘yun sa mga proje cts na darating. Tapos sabi niya, ‘As long as you show them that you’re working hard, you’re professional, ipaglaban mo, Claudine. Ipaglaban mo ‘yung pagiging nanay mo,” she said. 

“’Ipaglaban mo,’ sabi niya. ‘Pumunta ka sa korte. Mag-demanda ka,’ sabi niya. ‘Ipaglaban mo ‘yung pagiging nanay mo. Ipaglaban mo ‘yung pagiging asawa mo, pagiging wife mo. Ipaglaban mo lahat ‘yun. Kunin mo kung ano ‘yung nawala sa’yo.’

“And your mom told me lang na, ‘Continue working, kasi nandiyan na. Nandiyan na ‘yung mga trabaho mo. Pero ipaglaban mo. Kunin mo kung ano ‘yung para sa’yo.’”

Claudine did not mention the name of her ex-husband, but the actress has been estranged from her husband, actor Raymart Santiago. They were married first in a civil wedding in May 2004 and then again in a church wedding in March 2006. — Video from Luis Manzano YouTube channel
