LOOK: Claudine remembers ex-BF Rico Yan on 15th death anniversary
Claudine Barretto commemorated the 15th death anniversary of her former boyfriend Rico Yan with a series of Instagram posts on Friday.
The actress posted several treasured memorabilia of Yan, which she has kept through the years. First, she posted an image of a Keroppi blanket Yan used to share with her. In another post, Barretto showed a picture of Yan’s necklace.
A fan of the popular ’90s tandem of Yan and Barretto shared a picture of Yan using the said blanket.
Last year, Claudine reminisced about the late actor by sharing three letters penned by Yan on the photo-sharing app.
“Thank you for the wonderful dinner – I had such a great time! And you were right (again), the movie was nice. I sincerely hope that we could do this more often,” one of the letters read. “Again, thank you so much for last night, my bombshell girlfriend. I enjoyed every minute of it!”
In a comment on one of her posts, Barretto, 37, admitted that she and Yan’s sister Tina Marie decided to sell some of Rico Yan’s personal belongings.
“Tina Marie and I thought that its time to let go of some of his things [and] clothes. We will be transferring in a few months and I’ve to get rid of so [many] things,” Barretto said, adding that she intended to organize a weekend garage sale for some of Yan’s clothes.
