Gretchen responds to Marjorie, vows to ‘speak the truth’

-

The Barretto family feud continues to rage on as Gretchen Barretto also took to Instagram to respond to her sister Marjorie’s post.

Earlier today, Marjorie called out her sisters for allegedly feeding the press false statements, following reports about two incidents of confrontation that happened at the wake of their father, Miguel Barretto.

The Barretto family patriarch passed away last Tuesday, October 15, at the age of 82.

The first incident reportedly happened last Wednesday night when Gretchen visited the wake of her father, and around the same time Pres. Duterte and some politicians were at the Heritage Memorial Park in Taguig to pay their last respects to the Barretto family patriarch. It’s no showbiz secret that Gretchen has long been estranged from members of her family, only reconciling with younger sister Claudine this year.

Another confrontation allegedly took place at the wake Thursday night, this time between Marjorie and Claudine.

Sharing short videos wherein Duterte and his presidential security can be seen in the midst of the reported heated encounter, and quoting some lines from Marjorie’s Instagram post, Gretchen wrote that she will also “speak the truth and nothing but the truth.”

She leveled some serious allegations against her sister, saying that their mom Inday Barretto has spoken to her and “assured everyone that she will tell all regarding our family feud and the day of my dad’s birthday and who caused my father’s attack.”

She also posted Instagram stories alluding to the feud.

Earlier in her own Instagram post, Marjorie told her followers: “Don’t be fooled by the statements of my sisters, they are leaving out a very important detail of what really caused pain and tension in the wake.”

There are very disturbing news going around right now. All these years, I have kept my peace and I always chose to ignore all the LIES that my sisters spread about me and my children. But nothing can get lower than this. Giving false statements to the press, and twisting stories about what really happened in my Father’s wake is by far the most epic one. They have tried so hard over the years to destroy my name, I have nothing to lose anymore at this point.I love my family very much, they are my core. I am all for reconciliation. We were hoping for that all those 16 days that my Father was fighting for his life in the hospital.It would have been nice if she made her peace in the quiet of my Fathers room. With no cameras. Don’t be fooled by the statements of my sisters, they are leaving out a very important detail of what really caused pain and tension in the wake.May I request everyone to allow our family to grieve, it’s our last day with our Father today. Please hold your judgement and opinions until he is laid to rest,then WE WILL FOR THE FIRST TIME SPEAK THE WHOLE TRUTH AND NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH. I would like to ask for prayers too. Because when I speak the truth, my life and my children’s life will be put in danger. My sisters boyfriend is powerful in a very bad way( and I don’t mean Tony Boy)And in speaking the truth I won’t be able to leave his name out. And to our dear President Duterte, thank you for being there for the family and sharing in our grief. My apologies that your name was dragged into this. You were so kind to me. I will always be grateful.

She also asked the public to reserve their judgment, as she promised to tell all after their father is laid to rest. She also requested them to “allow our family to grieve.”
