In the latest celebrity update, the Barretto family feud seems to be getting even worse, now that Gretchen’s brother Joaquin Barretto has broke his silence and came out in the public to defend his bothered sister against their mother Inday.
Joaquin sent a signed statement to media outlets regarding to their mother Inday.
“You have lifted Claudine on a pedestal as the TV series queen and labeled Gretchen nothing but an ST queen. But who took over the role of her parents, worked at the age of 12 and gave up her education to put her siblings to school?” Joquin told Inday.
“Who put food on the table, paid for the rent, electricity and hospital bills when dad suffered from his heart condition at least two times? Did you ever once stop her from doing all that because you loved her and wanted to protect her just like what you are now doing for Claudine?” he added.
As you remember, the issue involving the sisters became public on April 13, 2013 when Gretchen and Marjorie posted several intriguing messages on Instagram against someone with username “btchjuliaisbitch.”
“Yuck. You know what yuck is? Your husband walked out coz you violent ways. What exactly did you do to his Porsche? His laptop? Etc. oh pls reflect and go to your happy place… Medical City,” One of Gretchen’s posted.
A few days later, Claudine, though her Instagram account (claubarretto), posted two photos of Porsche, a luxury car owned by her husband Raymart Santiago.
The caption of the first photo that shows the black Porsche read, “Raymart’s Porsche’s 1.” The second photo showed Claudine and daughter Sabina washing the same car, with a caption that read, “The Controversial Porshe.”
Meanwhile, Joaquin mentioned that Gretchen never threatened to have Claudine picked up because she became self-destructive- a condition that landed her in the hospital. He told his mom that instead of hitting Gretchen, Inday should instead take concrete steps to save Claudine.
Furthermore, he also refuted his mother’s claims that Gretchen has been calling Claudine’s children names.
“How is that ever possible when Gretchen had long stopped taking Claudine’s call? Hasn’t Claudine changed her mobile number many times while still owning many prepaid sim cards as well?” he asked.
Joaquin added that it was Claudine who repeatedly threatened to make an expose, the subject of which the family didn’t know “until bashing began on Instagram which is why Gretchen came to the rescue of Julia.”
Inday’s son Joaquin also added that Gretchen truly cares for Julia because it was the former who “chose to protect me and my siblings for a long, long time.”
On the other hand, Joaquin appealed to his mother to stop exposing dirty linen in public to save their family and keep falling apart.
“Please, mom, let us put a stop to this before our family totally fall apart while there is still something to save,” he said.
It will be recalled that Inday’s statement to Philippines Star entertainment editor Ricky Lo called Gretchen a liar because she has allegedly done and said “evil” things against Claudine.
