In an exclusive report, ABS-CBN News anchor Anthony Taberna (via ABS-CBNNews.com) revealed that "the heated rivalry between Senator Aquilino 'Koko' Pimentel III and former Senator Juan Miguel 'Migz' Zubiri turned personal in their first face off since the campaign period started."

 

The report noted: "The subject of cheating in the 2007 elections was again raised. Pimentel still holds it against Zubiri that he was denied four years of his term." But then the encounter turned personal when Zubiri "accused Pimentel of physically hurting his wife, former beauty queen Jewel Lobaton, which is allegedly the reason they are now separated."

 

The report quoted Zubiri, who said, "His estranged wife is my cousin and she herself confided to me that she is a battered wife." Pimentel denied the allegation and said that his estranged wife "is executing a signed statement so that her words will not be misinterpreted."
