Is Annabelle Rama taking swipe at Sarah Lahbati? ‘Si Richard nagtatrabaho, ‘yung isa nagwawaldas’
While Annabelle Rama did not immediately confirm or deny the breakup speculations hounding the marriage of her son Richard Gutierrez with Sarah Lahbati, the Gutierrez matriarch disclosed that the actor has been staying in her house for a month now.
Rama said this after she was asked about Richard and Lahbati’s relationship status, in an exclusive interview by ABS-CBN reporter MJ Felipe on Thursday, Dec. 7.
“Hindi pa ko pwede magsalita eh pero sasabihin ko sa ‘yo, si Richard na sa akin ngayon,” the talent manager said, noting that Richard will move to a house in Alabang after Christmas.
(I am not yet allowed to speak on the matter, but this is what I’ll say to you, Richard is staying with me now.)
Rama further revealed that the couple’s two sons, Zion and Kai, are currently with the actor. As for the rumors of feud between her and Lahbati, Rama said, “Hindi ko siya nakakausap. Wala akong time makipag-usap sa kanila.”
(I haven’t talked to her. I have no time to talk with them.)
Rama, without directly naming the actress, then told Felipe, “Nakikita mo naman ‘diba?… Si Richard trabaho nang trabaho, ‘yung isa nagwawaldas ng pera. ‘Yun lang ang masasabi ko diyan.”
(You can see it, don’t you? Richard has been working hard, while the other one has been splurging. That’s all I can say.)
Rama added that despite working tirelessly, Richard was welcomed with “dispute” after he returned to Manila. The celebrity mom also revealed that the whole Gutierrez family, except for one, whom she didn’t name, will celebrate the holiday season in Japan.
“Maghintay na lang kayo kasi malalaman niyo rin. Not now,” Ramad was quoted as saying. (Just wait and you’ll know about it soon. Not now.)
Richard and Lahbati, who got married in March 2020, welcomed their firstborn Zion in 2013 and their second child Kai in 2018.
Breakup speculations have been hounding the couple since November, after netizens noticed that the pair have only shown photos of their individual bonding moments with their sons on their respective social media pages.
Richard and Lahbati have yet to address the rumors as of this writing.
