Claudine’s lawyer calls Gretchen a Liar
Claudine’s lawyer Ferdinand Topacio called Gretchen Barretto a liar and a bad actress in reaction to the latter’s interview with Boy Abunda in ‘Buzz ng Bayan’ last 26 January where she discussed the legal battle between Claudine and estranged husband Raymart Santiago.
‘No one believes Gretchen.She’s making a spectacle of herself. If she wants to destroy herself, let her be,’ Topacio tweeted.
‘Gretchen lies, and it would be a cinch to expose her lies after she’s through making them.’
‘Funny thing is, even outside of her movies, Gretchen is a bad actress….’
In the interview, an emotional Gretchen justified her decision of siding with Raymart in the legal battle between him and Claudine.
‘Sinali ni Claudine ako, si JJ at tsaka si Marjorie sa kanyang affidavit against Raymart so we were forced to come out and do the affidavit against Claudine,’ Gretchen said. ‘We need to save the children. Kung mali sa tingin ng tao yung ginawa ko, I’m sorry pero yun talaga ang desperate move namin.’
Claudine and Raymart have two children, their adopted daughter Sabina and their son Santino.
‘I did not betray her, I only spoke the truth as I know it and it is the right thing to do,’ said Gretchen. ‘I don’t hate my sister, I hate what’s she’s doing.’
Meanwhile, Claudine reacted to Gretchen’s statement against their parents after the older Barretto sister claimed that she wanted to leave their house when she was younger because of the constant shouting and cursing from her parents.
‘I will try my very best kayanin to bt to punish & Lie abt my parents laki ng Utang na babayaran nilang lahat na niloko at inabuso ako coz God will not allow na,’ Claudine tweeted.
Gretchen previously claimed that their father, Miguel Barretto, threatened to shoot her if she testified in court against Claudine.
