Actress Claudine Barretto reportedly planning to file charges against Sabrina M. for involving her in her story about her alleged ‘secret relationship’ with Rico Yan.
It can be recalled that Claudine and Rico became popular as a love team, but their romance turned into reality, and they dated for four years before they broke up.
In an interview, Sabrina claimed that she became Rico’s girlfriend after Claudine, and they had a relationship until the actor passed away in 2002.
“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.
“Matagal ko rin pinag-iisipan kung pupunta ba ako sa burol niya or hindi. Baka ma-issue kasi. Pero may nagsabi sa akin pumunta raw ako para respeto lang sa kanya. Dahil naging kami naman daw,” she added.
However, many showbiz reporters questioned the legitimacy of Sabrina’s story, saying that they should have seen the actress at the burial of Rico if ever her account was real.
Even Ogie Diaz said that they attended Rico’s burial every day and never saw Sabrina there.
In his online show, the talent manager believed that Sabrina only used Rico to promote her upcoming movie.
According to him, Claudine was very disappointed after hearing the accounts made by Sabrina and even ready to make the 90s star accountable for what she said.
“Balak magdemanda ni Claudine Barretto dahil hindi raw totoo ‘yung sinasabi ni Sabrina M na aware si Claudine at ginagamit pa si Bobby Yan,” said Ogie.
“E, ang claim pa ni Sabrina M ay binigyan pa siya ng bulaklak ni Bobby Yan para ilagay do’n sa nitso bago isara, hindi rin naman daw totoo!” he added.
He also gave advice to Sabrina that she must avoid using other people if she wanted to promote herself to the public.
