Gretchen Barretto Says Sister Claudine Is Suffering From Severe Mental Illness

GRETCHEN BARRETTO might be currently vacationing in Chiang Mai, Thailand but obviously, the latest tirades of her sister Claudine against her have already reached her so she answered them in a statement in social media.

She declared: “How do I debate with someone who is clearly hallucinating and is under the influence of drugs and is suffering from severe mental illness? I am not one who would utter words such as ‘baboy,’ ‘lechon,’ ‘laos’ at ‘magpakamatay ka na.’ I never spoke ill or cursed Sabina nor Santino. I have yet to hear Claudine and her mother and father speak the truth for once. Their current situation and lost relationships should speak volumes of the kind of character and attitude they posses. To the public, it shames me to say that Mrs. Inday Barretto is the kind of mother that I don’t wish anyone would have. She has been our greatest pain and nightmare. She has taught us to stay away from her as far as possible in order to be safe and sane. May kasabihan, ‘Ang kapatid ng magnanakaw ay sinungaling’.”

Obviously, we have not heard the last of this. But someone should tell Claudine that her behavior will certainly not help her in her desire to make a showbiz comeback. Her combative attitude is really alienating a lot of people. Unlike her, ex-husband Raymart Santiago continues to have a career as he’s in the hit afternoon soap “Villa Quintana.” Raymart remains slim, fit and young looking, while Claudine has gained so much unbecoming weight that will definitely work against her wish to resume her showbiz career.
