Claudine Barretto quickly clarified reports that she died due to drug overdose.
In an interview with GMA News on Wednesday, she said, “Meron na ngang Claudinian na na-heart attack. ’Yung isa naman na-stroke.”
( A Claudinian got a heart attack. The other one suffered a stroke.)
The 34-year-old actress, then, addressed whoever spread the wrong news, “Sana masaya na kayo sa ginagawa ninyo. Pinapahaba niyo lang ang buhay ko. God bless you na lang po kung sinuman kayo.”
( I hope that you are happy with what you’re doing. You are just making my life longer. God Bless whoever you are.)
She also disclosed that someone tried to “attack” their house, showing media the broken metal protrusions on their gate.
But Claudine was also quick to clarify that she is not accusing estranged husband Raymart Santiago.
“I don’t understand why other people think na, like si Raymart, akala ni Raymart, siya ’yung pinatatamaan ko. Ngayon, kung tinatamaan siya eh baka nga may ginawa siya. Pero for the record, I never said it was him. I never even thought, it never even crossed my mind na siya ’yun dahil mga anak niya ’yung involved eh,” she explained.
(I don’t understand why other people think that, like Raymart, Raymart thought that I was referring to him. Now, if he is affected, maybe he really did something. But for the record, I never said it was him. I never even thought, it never even crossed my mind that he did it because his children are involved.)
