Gretchen Barretto testifies against sister Claudine in court
Is this her way of showing tough love?
ABS-CBNnews.com reports that Gretchen Barretto, appeared in court on Thursday (December 19) to testify against her sister, actress Claudine Barretto, in relation to the latter's legal feud with husband Raymart Santiago.
According to the report, Gretchen agreed to testify about Claudine's alleged illness and drug use despite getting death threats from their father Miguel, who warned her against saying unsavory things about her sister. Gretchen said after the closed-door hearing that "she only testified against Claudine out of love and concern, saying she is actively seeking ways to get her (sister) treatment for her alleged condition."
"I love her, with all my heart. Dahil kung hindi ko siya mahal, wala ako rito [at] hindi ko ipaglalaban ito, ’yung tama," Gretchen said. Claudine and her estranged husband separately asked the court earlier this year to individually grant them the sole custody of their two children.
