After keeping her silence for almost a week, controversial actress Gretchen Barretto finally speaks up about the rumor that she was kicked out by long-time partner Tonyboy Cojuangco from their Dasmariñas mansion.
Gretchen attended Senator Bong Revilla's 42nd birthday last Wednesday, September 24, at C3 Events Place in Greenhills, San Juan. It was there that 24 Oras' Lhar Santiago was able to interview her regarding the rumor.
The controversy-magnet actress kept silent and had to stay in the house for 10 days because she was sick. But Gretchen said, "'Pag ako pinalayas, ako mismo ang mag-a-announce na pinalayas ako at umiiyak-iyak na ako sa TV. Hindi ako puwedeng palayasin dahil niregalo sa akin yung bahay na ‘yon. Hindi naman siya [Tonyboy] namimigay at babawi, di ba?"
Gretchen admitted that she got irritated by the report that she was kicked out by Tonyboy.
"Actually, Tony was very affected," she said. "Kasi sabi niya, bakit daw pinapalabas na parang masama siyang tao? Napakadisente ni Tony para sabihin na nagpapalayas siya ng tao."
There are also rumors that Gretchen is two-months pregnant, but the actress just looked at her tummy and said, "I'm very happy with one daughter, Dominique, and I have a lot of adopted children! So, alam mo, I don't need to have more. But if I do, it's okay also, it's a blessing."
With so many controversies that Gretchen had been through, she said that she already mastered the art of "pandededma." So she had this to say about reports linking her to different men: "As long as it's true, I don't mind if I'm linked. ‘Pag hindi totoo, hindi ako natutuwa."
