MANILA, Philippines – Saying that she can no longer handle the “lies” being spread by her sisters, former actress Marjorie Barretto broke her silence on the reported scuffle that happened between her and siblings  Gretchen and Claudine at their father’s wake.

“There are very disturbing news going around right now. All these years, I have kept my peace and I always chose to ignore all the LIES that my sisters spread about me and my children.” Marjorie said in an Instagram post Friday.

“But nothing can get lower than this. Giving false statements to the press, and twisting stories about what really happened in my father’s wake is by far the most epic one,” she added.

When Gretchen visited the wake, it was reported that she had an altercation with Marjorie.

Marjorie added that her two sisters “have tried so hard over the years to destroy my name, I have nothing to lose anymore at this point.”

She also declared that she was “all for reconciliation” for the sake of her family.

“We were hoping for that all those 16 days that my Father was fighting for his life in the hospital, It would have been nice if she made her peace in the quiet of my father’s room. With no cameras.” the former actress and Caloocan City councilor said, without specifying if she was referring to Gretchen or Claudine.

There are very disturbing news going around right now. All these years, I have kept my peace and I always chose to ignore all the LIES that my sisters spread about me and my children. But nothing can get lower than this. Giving false statements to the press, and twisting stories about what really happened in my Father’s wake is by far the most epic one. They have tried so hard over the years to destroy my name, I have nothing to lose anymore at this point.I love my family very much, they are my core. I am all for reconciliation. We were hoping for that all those 16 days that my Father was fighting for his life in the hospital.It would have been nice if she made her peace in the quiet of my Fathers room. With no cameras. Don’t be fooled by the statements of my sisters, they are leaving out a very important detail of what really caused pain and tension in the wake.May I request everyone to allow our family to grieve, it’s our last day with our Father today. Please hold your judgement and opinions until he is laid to rest,then WE WILL FOR THE FIRST TIME SPEAK THE WHOLE TRUTH AND NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH. I would like to ask for prayers too. Because when I speak the truth, my life and my children’s life will be put in danger. My sisters boyfriend is powerful in a very bad way( and I don’t mean Tony Boy)And in speaking the truth I won’t be able to leave his name out. And to our dear President Duterte, thank you for being there for the family and sharing in our grief. My apologies that your name was dragged into this. You were so kind to me. I will always be grateful.
