The mother of singer Jake Zyrus, Raquel Pempengco spoke up on the conflict between Sarah Geronimo and her mother Divine.

Jake’s mother was among the many mothers who weighed in on the mother-daughter issue. On Facebook, Racquel expressed her point of view as a mother. 

“Happy ako kasi nahanap na ni Sarah G ang happiness niya, yun naman ang importante. In a way, napakalaking sakripisyo niya na sa pamilya niya ang nakatulong ng 15 years,” she started. 

She said that as a mother, it hurts to be overlooked by their own children. 

“Sana sinabi na lang ni Sarah in a nice way na nasa tamang edad na po ako…kahit sa gusto o ayaw niyo nagpaalam lang ako bilang respeto,” Racquel said, adding that she feels mommy Divine’s pain. 

“BIlan isang ‘anak’ nagrebelde din ako… Bilang isang ‘ina’ nasasaktan din ako,” she ended. 

In a 2018 interview, Jake admitted he is not in good terms with his mother. 

“She knows she’s my weakness but she takes advantage of it and I’m not scared to say that. Isang iyak niya lang ubusin ko lahat sa kanya, my money, everything,” he said.
