Claudine, Raymart: 'Cooling off'
MANILA, Philippines - Celebrity couple Raymart Santiago and Claudine Barretto are no longer living under one roof, according to a report by ABS-CBN.
In an article published in Philippine Star on April 24, Claudine’s mother Inday Barretto confirmed the news.
“Yes, it’s true,” she told entertainment journalist Ricky Lo.
Inday, however, is praying for a resolution to her daughter’s predicament and is hoping the split only serves as a “cooling-off period,” said the report.
“But if God wills it to be permanent, huwag naman sana, but still, our life is not in our hands!” she added.
Inday continued with a statement directed to her daughter Gretchen Barretto, who has reportedly been having issues with Claudine.
In Claudine’s defense, Inday said, “Gretchen, do you also want to include God in your 'bashing' and drip your perfumed saliva for the misfortune of your sister?”
Gretchen has reportedly been posting about her sister’s bad temper on social media, claiming Claudine’s violent attitude toward her husband Raymart Santiago is what caused their split.
Santiago has yet to comment on the issue but has acknowledged the fact that their family is far from perfect. - With reports from Ira Agting/Rappler.com
