Iggy Arroyo’s estranged wife Alicia slams Grace Ibuna anew, says, "We should stop celebrating adultery and glorifying homewreckers"
ABS-CBNNews.com reports that Iggy’s estranged wife, Alicia "Aleli" Arroyo, wants to make sure that she’ll be given the right to decide how Iggy’s remains will be handled.
The controversy that erupted in the wake of Negros Occidental Rep. Ignacio "Iggy" Arroyo’s death continues.
ABS-CBNNews.com reports that Iggy’s estranged wife, Alicia "Aleli" Arroyo, wants to make sure that she’ll be given the right to decide how Iggy’s remains will be handled. Though their marriage was in the process of being annulled, the annulment was never granted so she remains his "legal wife."
In an earlier report, it was revealed that Iggy had not been going home to Alicia since 2005. In fact, when Iggy died in London on January 27, it was his live-in partner Grace Ibuna who was by his side.
Alicia-who became Iggy’s second wife after his marriage to Marilen Jacinto was annulled-has a daughter by Iggy, who is referred to in the ABS-CBNNews.com report by her nickname, "Alelu."
The report quoted Alicia, who talked about her plans for Iggy’s funeral. She said, "I want to have a simple wake for him, and I hope the family understands. Gusto ko lang talagang maiuwi siya sa anak ko (I just want to bring him home to our child)."
Moreover, Alicia said that Iggy had never told her that he was already with Grace. However, she also claimed that Iggy "changed" when he was already with Grace. Alicia quipped, "We should stop celebrating adultery and glorifying homewreckers. (If you’re the) legal wife, you don't have to do anything. The law will protect you."
Alicia emphasized that she is considering filing charges against Grace for allegedly "misrepresenting herself as Iggy’s legal wife." An earlier report had revealed that Alicia is questioning the fact that Grace was allegedly allowed to make decision about pulling the plug on Iggy’s life support system.
