Claudine Barretto calls out Dennis Padilla over remarks against his daughter Julia Barretto


Claudine Barretto asked former brother-in-law Dennis Padilla to refrain from lashing out at his children on social media. 

In a now-deleted Instagram post, Claudine tagged Dennis in a photo of the actor-comedian and wrote: “@dennisastig Kuya tama na! Tumigil ka na pls! Sumusobra ka na! Maawa ka sa mga bata. Pls stop! Mag usap tayo.” 

Claudine’s statement came after Dennis reacted negatively to Julia’s remarks about their current relationship in an interview with broadcast journalist Karen Davila. 

In the said interview, Julia mentioned that she’s once again not on speaking terms with her father, admitting she’s scared of getting caught up with the cycle of “making up and getting hurt again”.

Julia, in the same interview with Karen, expressed hope that she and her mom Marjorie Barretto will also be reconciled with her estranged aunts Claudine and Gretchen after their past public rift.

“Even after things have been said and done, I just feel like the fact that it was painful for each other, it means there was love in the first place,” said Julia. 

“I feel like there’s hope. If I’m affected, it’s for my mom, because I do know how much love she has for them,” she added. 

On the other hand, Dennis Padilla, urged Karen to be fair and also get his side on the matter in one of the series of his now-deleted Instagram posts.

“Nung malakas pa ako kumita at maliit pa kyo… Kanino ba naubos lahat? Sa inyo… Kasi gusto ko maginhawa ang buhay nyo,” Dennis addressed his children.

Dennis also expressed dismay, claiming that he had already asked forgiveness from his family for his shortcomings but to no avail.

“Ang buong bahay ko… Ang halaga katumbas lang ng isang kotse mo julia. Ano pang revenge ang gusto niyong gawin? Lahat ng blessings nasa inyo na… Humingi ako ng apology sa mga pagkukulang ko.. Ano pa gusto nyo?… .. Pati kay gerard humingi ako ng apology… Ano pa?” he wrote.

To recall, Dennis also aired his frustration when he did not receive a Father’s Day greeting from Julia and two other children from ex-wife Marjorie Barretto last June. 

Meanwhile, Julia’s mother Marjorie Barretto penned a message of love and support amid the Dennis’ rants online.
