Jenine Desiderio’s mommy woe is daughter taking side of ‘pilfering’ driver
There may be another bump in the not-so-smooth-sailing relationship of singer-actress Jenine Desiderio and her daughter Janella Salvador — this time, involving an allegedly “pilfering” and “lying” driver.
Desiderio took to Facebook on Sept. 9 to express her frustration about her daughter who she said chooses to “believe” a “pilfering” driver over her, despite the presence of a witness and evidence: “Eh yung nahuli mo na on three occasions yung driver ng anak mo (with witness and evidence) na nangugupit at nagsisinungaling tapos mas pinili nyang paniwalaan yung driver.”
(When you caught the driver of your daughter on three occasions (with witness and evidence) pilfering and lying, and yet she chose to believe the driver.)
Eh yung nahuli mo na on 3 occasions yung driver ng anak mo (with witness & evidence) na nangugupit at nagsisinungaling tapos mas pinili nyang paniwalaan yung driver.
Netizens wondered at first if Desiderio was talking about Salvador whose nickname is Jea. In the comments section of her post, she made it clear that she was indeed talking about her daughter.
One friend of the actress commented that perhaps Salvador was just going through a phase and prayers may help, to which Desiderio replied, “Bakit parang ayaw s’ya tablan? Dami kasi kumakampi because of that she thinks she’s doing right and I’m wrong.”
(Why does it look like prayers don’t work on her. A lot of people are taking her side; because of that, she thinks she’s doing right and I’m wrong.)
Another commenter, Audie Dulalia Bantigue, thought Salvador probably did not have the guts to fire her driver yet, and that Salvador might not be aware of the risks for keeping the driver. “Sadly as a parent kailangan mo pa dagdagan ang pagbabantay (you need to be more vigilant),” the commenter added.
“Nagpapabantay ba? (Is she asking me to lookout for her?)” was Desiderio’s only retort.
“Takot siya, obviously, mawalan ng driver (She’s afraid, obviously, to lose a driver),” commented one Facebook user, Monique Lecaros. Desiderio then revealed in her reply that Salvador’s driver even failed to pick her up twice.
“After all [that] he’s done, hindi s’ya kawalan (he’s not a loss),” Desiderio stated. “He cannot be trusted.”
This is not the first time Desiderio made use of her social media platforms to unload about her frustrations concerning her daughter. Last year, she took a swipe at her daughter’s supposed hard-headedness in a series of posts on Twitter.
Nevertheless, Desiderio does express her support for her daughter as well, just as she did for Salvador’s film “So Connected” which premiered last May. JB
