Another controversy involving the Barretto sisters is now being talked about on social media.
It is said that the P500,000 per month support that the elder Barretto, Gretchen, was supposed to give to her youngest sister, Claudine, did not go through.
This issue was shared by talent manager and showbiz columnist Ogie Diaz in his latest vlog on YouTube.
According to Ogie, the half a million pesos that Gretchen was supposed to support Claudine was cut off because the latter did not follow some terms and conditions of her sister.
“Merong nag-chika sa akin, dapat pala itong si Claudine ay sinusuportahan na raw ni Gretchen Barretto. Kaya lang medyo hindi nasunod yung gustong mangyari ni Gretchen.”
Ogie added that Gretchen’s conditions are also for Claudine.
“Oo, para rin kay Claudine. Kaya lang, parang hindi yata ito nasunod ni Claudine at nasuway niya. So sayang ‘yung supposedly eh P500,000 a month na suporta nitong si Gretchen kay Claudine.”
The veteran showbiz columnist added that Gretchen set some conditions for her younger sister. But it appears that Claudine did not follow or meet them as she was supposed to give P500,000 to her to fulfill them.
“‘Yung idiretso lang ang buhay… Love naman ni Claudine at Gretchen ang isa’t isa. Kaya lang sa checklist ni Gretchen na gustong mangyari kay Claudine, eh merong hindi nagawa doon si Claudine. Kaya waley na ‘yung 500K.”
According to her, it seems Gretchen also does not want Claudine to enter politics. But despite her sister’s opposition, Claudine still chose to run as a councilor in Olongapo.
Mama Ogs went on to say that one of the reasons Gretchen’s support ended was because of the good relationship Claudine has now with their other sister, Marjorie Barretto.
It should be noted that Claudine’s photo of herself and Marjorie celebrating the New Year together was widely shared on social media this year. This is despite a long-standing feud between the Barretto sisters.
