The revelation of Marietta Subong, also known as Pokwang against her former husband Lee O’Brian became a hot discussion on social media after she claimed that the latter didn’t provide for their family for almost six years.
Talent manager Ogie Diaz gave more information about the revelation of Pokwang, saying that the comedian spent too much money to provide for her needs and her ex-partner.
According to Diaz, Pokwang spent her own money on her hospitalization during her childbirth and also the basic needs of their child Malia while Lee was allegedly not doing anything to contribute.
“As per Mamang Pokie ay lahat siya na ang gumastos. Mula sa kanyang pagbubuntis, mula sa mga vitamins na iniinom niya habang siya ay nagbubuntis kay Malia, sa pagpapa-ospital, sa binyag, sa unang kaarawan ni Malia, sa lahat ng kaarawan na nagdaan kay Malia, siya na lahat.” Ogie said.
Aside from Malia, Pokwang also shouldered the travel expenses of Lee if her ex-husband wanted to travel back to America.
“Hindi naman din niya sinabi kung kani-kanino na siya lahat ang gumagastos sa lahat. Literal. Kumbaga sa kanya nakatira raw itong si Papang at siya lahat ang gumagastos.” the talent manager stated.
“Kahit na raw yung mga pagpunta sa US ni Papang, ni Malia para dalawin yung parents ni Papang, siya pa rin daw. Business class pa yun, binawas sa talent fee niya. Ultimo yun mga panggatas ni Malia, school ni Malia, siya rin daw yun. Wala raw ano si Papang doon. Kaya lang, nakuha niyang ipagtanggol dahil tatay pa rin ito ng anak niya,” he added.
Pokwang possibly already spent millions of pesos during her six-year relationship with Lee.
As of writing, Lee has yet to give any statement about the claims of Pokwang.
It can be recalled that Pokwang started to criticize Lee after she revealed that the American actor was already dating another woman.
