Veteran columnist Cristy Fermin debunked the claims of actress Sabrina M, who said that she had a ‘secret relationship’ with late actor Rico Yan.
During her show ‘Cristy Ferminute’, the columnist who also followed Rico when he was still alive was asked about her reaction to the statements made by Sabrina.
It can be recalled that on July 6, the actress claimed that she was the girlfriend of the matinee idol after he broke up with Claudine Barretto.
“Alam po ni Claudine na naging kami. Pero never pa namin pinagusapan po. Wala namang problem kasi noong naging kami, wala na sila ni Claudine. Hindi ko naman inagaw si Rico sa kanya noong sila pala,” Sabrina said.
Sabrina also said that Rico’s parents knew about her relationship with the late actor and even attended his burial.
However, Cristy said that she didn’t see any sign that Sabrina and Rico had a relationship.
“Paiiksian ko ang aking sagot. Una, nakakatigagal ang kwentong ito.” said Fermin. “Pinag-usapan ng anim na buwan ang pagpanaw ni Rico Yan, pero wala tayong narinig na anumang salita ni Sabrina M.”
“Gabi gabi ay halos nasa lamay kami, sa burol hanggang sa libing, ni anino ni Sabrina M wala kaming nakita.
“Mas maniniwala pa po ako na ang daloy ng tubig sa waterfalls ay pataas kaysa sa pababa, kaysa sa paniwalaan ko na si Sabrina M ang karelasyon ni Rico Yan nang siya ay pumanaw.” she added.
They also questioned Sabrina’s intention to claim her relationship with Rico, saying that the actor couldn’t defend himself anymore.
As of writing, the relatives of Rico have yet to give any response to the claims by the actress.
