Sarah Balabagan surprised the netizens after she claimed that Arnold Clavio “manipulated” her during and after their relationship.
In an interview with Ben Tulfo, Balabagan said that she doesn’t want to give the fully disclose on how Clavio manipulated her because of its disgusting details.
In a previous video, Balagbagan said that she had a relationship with Clavio from 1996 to 1997 when she was still 17 years old while the journalist was 32 years old.
Their relationship also resulted in one child whom they named “Ara”.
“Kung napanood niyo ‘yung video, wala naman akong sinabi na against sa kanya, what’s more kung ikinuwento ko pa kung paano niya ako minanipulate, baka lalong masuka ‘yung mga taong makakaalam o makakapanood,” Balabagan said.
Balabagan also explained that she admitted her past relationship with Clavio to finish the issue and to end the speculations.
The former Overseas Filipino worker also said that some politicians offered her in the past to publicize her relationship with Clavio in exchange for money, but fortunately for the journalist, she refused all of it.
“Pinakiusapan ako na ireklamo ko si Arnold Clavio in return dodoblihin nila yung sustento na ibinibigay ni Arnold sa akin o sa anak ko, pero hindi ako pumayag dahil ayaw ko po na magamit ako sa politika,” she stated.
“Kung magpapagamit ako, sana noon pa so wala po akong intensyon kundi ang sabihin ang katotohanan,” she added.
She even revealed that there’s some time that Clavio kneeled to her just not to reveal their relationship.
“Pasalamat ka, after 22 years aminin mo nalang, magpakalalake ka, aminin mo ‘yung ginawa mo sakin, hindi ko sasabihin kung paano mo ako minanipulate, hindi ko i-justify kung ginagawa ko o paano nangyari yung ginagawa ko, pero sasabihin ko lang ang totoo na ikaw ang ama ni Ara,” she said.
She said that Ara who’s now 21 years old, is now living and working in the United States.
Almost one week ago, Balabagan admitted her relationship with Clavio.
“Alam niyo po simula noong nagkaroon kami ng relasyon ni Arnold ang payo niya sakin lagi ay ‘walang aminan, kahit anong mangyari wag kang aamin, napaniwala niya ako,” said Balabagan.
