Jinkee Pacquiao received praise on social media after she reportedly supported Manny Pacquiao’s decision to recognize his illegitimate son, Eman Bacosa.
According to talent manager and showbiz reporter Ogie Diaz, Jinkee urged her husband to support Eman, the alleged child of the only eight-division world champion to Joanna Rose Bacosa.
“Nakakatuwa si Jinkee, dahil according to my source na kaibigan ni Jinkee, common friend namin ni Jinkee, sinabi daw ni Jinkee kay Manny Pacquiao na ‘go ahead, suportahan mo ’yan kasi anak mo ‘yan,'” Ogie said.
It can be recalled that the rumors about Manny’s illegitimate child started in 2006 when Joanna filed charges against Pacquiao.
In a counter-affidavit filed by Manny, he admitted that he supported Joanna and Eman, so he couldn’t believe he was being charged.
After 17 years, Eman resurfaced on social media after he made his professional boxing debut under the promotion of Manny.
Eman’s first match resulted in a draw, but many boxing fans still hoped the 5’10 professional boxer inherited his father’s talents.
