Gretchen Barretto to address family issues privately-A A +A
Sunday, May 5, 2013
ACTRESS Gretchen Barretto became emotional while giving a short message regarding the recent controversy involving her family.
Appearing on Sunday talk show "The Buzz," Gretchen said it is not easy that her life is being scrutinized by the public.
"Hindi madali ang pinagdadaan ko ngayon. Hindi madali yung pinag-uusapan ka ng buong Pilipinas. Hindi madaling pakinggan yung pinagdaanan ko... yung childhood ko," she said.
The actress appealed for privacy, saying family problems should not be discussed in public.
Gretchen said 18-year-old daughter Dominique knows her story.
"Many years from now lilingunin niya itong nangyari sa akin. Maaalala ni Dominique na my mom never fought. And that's what's important to me. Yun ang importante. That's what I like to leave behind," she said.
Earlier, Gretchen was called a "liar" and capable of "evil manipulation" by her own mother Inday Barretto.
Gretchen's brother Joaquin came to her defense but other sibling Gia Barretto-Reyes sided with Inday, lambasting the actress for allegedly hurting their family.
The actress has already hinted at taking legal action against Gia. (Sunnex)
