Nonito Donaire denounced by own mother

Nonito Donaire Jr., was reported in “Showbiz Central” to have been denounced by his own mother, Imelda Donaire. In an online interview, Nonito talked about his rift with his own dad who allegedly stole money from him, that he’s not the favorite child of his parents, comes from a very poor family and his folks still can’t accept his wife Rachel.

His mom said all this is not true and she can’t tolerate his lying. The amount his dad got from him is said to be $240, used to feed his own boxing staff. Honestly, that’s a very small amount for Nonito to get mad at his dad who raised him. His mom said they were not that poor since she’s a teacher and his dad, a soldier, so there’s always food on the table. It seems Nonito wants to make it appear that they’re very poor like Manny Pacquiao’s family who was deserted by his dad. His mom says they didn’t play favorites with their kids and is surprised that he’s jealous of his older brother Glenn who initially supported him when he was just starting as a boxer. She revealed that when she watched Nonito’s fight in Manila, the dad of his wife Rachel gave her some rules like she can’t go near her own son and ask something from him. When his dad got sick of a kidney ailment, they asked help from him and Nonito’s reply is “If it’s God’s will, it is God’s will.” Nonito’s wife is also interviewed and she said the arguments are always about money as the mom always wants to know how much money Nonito has. All these stories will no doubt be very bad press for Nonito. He will always pale in comparison to Manny who is well known for being close and generous to members of his own family. And someone adds: “At ang misis ni Manny, hindi antipatika ang dating.”
