Alden Richards came to defend his father Richard Faulkerson Sr. after a netizen accused the so-called ‘Daddy Bae’ of being too dependent on his son.
In an Instagram post, a netizen asked Mr. Faulkerson if he was not working and just receiving financial support from his celebrity son.
“Di po ba kayo nag tatrabaho, si Alden lang?” the netizen asked.
Daddy Bae then made a sarcastic response, saying that he was living comfortably.
“Masarap po ang buhay ko… naka istambay lang po ako… umaasa lang po.. palamunin ng anak,” he said.
Alden then responded to the comment and asked the netizen to stop throwing accusations.
“Fact check po muna ma’am tikom na lang po natin ang bibig kung wala po tayong alam, salamat po,” he said.
It can be recalled that Mr. Faulkerson who was working as a manager originally wanted Alden to become a pilot.
However, Alden’s mother, Rosario Faulkerson urged her son to pursue acting.
