Jinkee Pacquiao belied rumors that her marriage with Filipino boxing icon Manny Pacquiao is on the rocks by showing a recent photo of them being cozy with each other.

Jinkee spoke about this after their family friend, talent manager Annabelle Rama, addressed the “Marites” who spread such rumors through a post on the latter’s Instagram page on Monday, Jan. 30. “Marites,” apparently a shortened version of the expression “Mare, ano ang latest?” (Friend, what’s the latest?), is a slang term used for a person who consistently gossips about other people.

“Tigilan niyo na ang pag-imbento ng kwento tungkol kay Jinkee na nag-file ng annulment, at kawawa naman dahil buntis. I just want to clarify sa lahat ng nag-text at tawag sa akin kung totoo ang chismis — no, it’s fake news,” Rama said. “Unang-una, sa nakikita ko [ay] imposibleng maghiwalay ang mag-asawa dahil [ang] sweet nila and happy family.”

(Stop making up stories about Jinkee—that she filed for annulment and that she’s pitiful because she’s pregnant. I just want to clarify to those who texted and called me to ask if the rumors were true — no, it’s fake news. First of all, as I see it, it’s impossible for the couple to break up because they are sweet to each other, and their [family is happy].)

Rama also advised the gossipmongers to stop these rumors, saying Jinkee and Manny are currently busy with the construction of their three-hectare dream house.

Jinkee then responded to Rama via the comments section and said, “Hayaan mo na sila (Let them be). God bless them!”
