Claudine Barretto vows revenge after son allegedly hurt by kin
A fuming Claudine Barretto took to Instagram to vent her anger after her 10-year-old son Rodrigo Santino Santiago was supposedly attacked by an adult relative whom she did not name.
Barretto posted a photo of her son in a hospital bed, as well as a medical certificate from St. Luke’s Medical Center Global City which found that Santino suffered from soft tissue contusion.
“’Yang red as arm ng anak ko, saan nanggaling ‘yan kung pinagsabihan n’yo lang????” Barretto wrote in the caption. “Nagkamali kayo ng SINAKTAN!!! You hurt my son PHYSICALLY GOD FORGIVE ME SA ANONG GAGAWIN KO SA INYO!!!!”
(Where would the red mark on my son’s arm come from if you only scolded him? You picked the wrong person to hurt. You hurt my son physically. God forgive me for what I would do to you.)
In the comments section of her posts, an irate Barretto vowed vengeance against the one who allegedly hurt her son, who she only identified as a relative. “’Di po sa school sinaktan si Saint. PAMILYA NYA PO GUMAWA SA KANYA. KAMAG ANAK (Saint wasn;t hurt in school. His family did it to him, a relative.),” she wrote.
“Makalabas lang si Saint ng OSPITAL MAGTAGO NA KAYO!!!!” Barretto said. “Kumalma ako??? Sinaktan nyo 10 years old ang tatanda nyo na mga hayop kayo!! Manginig kayo sa gagawin ko!”
(Once Saint goes out of the hospital better hide. I should remain calm? You are animals, you are too old yet you hurt a 10-year-old child. You would be terrified in what I would do to you.)
“Kahit na baliktarin nila ako di nila kaya (Even if they turn the table against me, they won’t succeed). I’m not going to hold back because before anything else I AM A MOTHER FIRST! Thank you for all your support, love and prayers,” she added.
The actress also said she was hoping that her husband Raymart Santiago would do something to defend their son.
“In all the battles that I’ve gotten myself in, ako pa rin?! Ako lahat? Sana lang ipaglaban naman ni Raymart mga anak nya. Yun kasi ang problema lagi ako lang ang bad cop, kasi most of the time pinababayaan nya tungkol sa kesa sa sarili nyang mga anak,” Barretto said. RAM
(In all the battles that I’ve gotten myself in, I have to face this? I have to face this alone? I hope Raymart would defend his children. The problem is I’m always the bad cop because most of the time, he just neglects his children’s welfare.)
