Claudine Barretto to Dennis Padilla over statements on his children: ‘Maawa ka sa mga bata’
Claudine Barretto came to her nieces and nephew’s defense and asked actor Dennis Padilla to have pity on his children, following his recent statements about them.
The actress asked Padilla to spare his kids — Julia, Claudia and Leon — from the repercussions the actor’s statements may cause, as per Claudine’s Instagram page yesterday, Sept. 18. The post has been removed but screenshots of it have already been re-uploaded on social media.
“Kuya tama na! Tumigil ka na [please]!” she said. “[Sumosobra] ka na! Maawa ka sa mga bata. [Please] stop! Mag-usap tayo.”
(Brother, enough! Stop it already, please! You are too much! Have pity on [your] kids. Please stop! Let’s talk.)
Meanwhile, Marjorie Barretto made an open letter to Julia and assured the actress of her love and support, via Marjorie’s Instagram page.
“Dearest Jul, I LOVE you with the kind of love that you can trust. Love that you can depend on, and the kind that will protect you and never betray you,” Marjorie stated. “Here we go again, back in our family bubble shutting off the noise outside. Only choosing to be grateful for the good things that is in front of us.”

While Marjorie did not specify the “noise outside” she was referring to, it can be noted that Julia recently had an interview with broadcaster Karen Davila where the actress spoke up about her strained relationship with her dad Padilla. Padilla then refuted her statements and stressed that Julia only knows “half the truth.”
Padilla also called on Davila to have an interview with him as well, stating that there are inaccuracies in Julia’s knowledge about their family’s past. Davila responded to the actor through a private message, but as of this writing, no further announcements have been given if she will conduct an interview with him. JB
