Donnalyn Bartolome received ‘sugar daddy applications,’ indecent proposal from prince
Donnalyn Bartolome reminded women that it is more fulfilling to provide for themselves, as she revealed that she received “sugar daddy applications” and an indecent proposal from a prince.
“I’ve had indecent proposals. May nag-email talaga sa’kin. Parang babayaran ako nang isang gabi just to go on a date with someone,” Bartolome said in a YouTube vlog on May 4. ([They] really emailed me. They [said they] would pay me for one night to go on a date with someone.)
“This guy scouts for women who would go on a date for money. Meron din prince sa ibang bansa (There’s also a prince from abroad),” she added.
The vlogger also talked about a Facebook user named Jessie Mindosa who used her photos to get money from strangers online. Mindosa showed old photos of Bartolome holding her younger brother Buknoy and claimed that she was a single mother.
Bartolome poked fun at the men who did not realize that Mindosa was only posing as her.
“Pawisin pa ‘yung kinuha niyang photo para kapani-paniwala. May naniwalang mga daddy, siyempre di ko target market ang mga daddy!” she quipped. (She picked a photo where I look sweaty so people would believe her. Dads believed her, I don’t target content to daddies!)
Bartolome called her manager Toby, brother Carlo and her dad to talk about the indecent proposals. They all pointed out that she could make enough money on her own, and may even earn more than the men who are sending her emails.
Although she joked with them about the sugar daddy applications, Bartolome agrees with them. She also stressed that it is more fulfilling for a woman to provide for herself.
“I just want to inspire girls to be a girl who can take care of [their selves]. Pinakamasarap sa feeling ‘yung you know you’re fine on your own,” she stated. (It’s the best feeling when you know you’re fine on your own.)
She told women that the only reason for them to be with someone should be love, while she told them men that having a financially stable partner is no reason for them to stop working hard. JB
