Filipino boxing icon Manny Pacquiao on Sunday broke his silence on his rumored affair with actress Krista Ranillo – an issue that overshadowed his November 15 victory against Puerto Rican Miguel Cotto in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Interviewed by GMA News, Pacquiao said he and Krista are just “good friends.”
“Matalik na magkaibigan talaga kami (We’re just good friends),” he said.
Krista will star in Pacquiao’s next movie, Wapakman.
In the interview, Pacquiao apologized to Krista and her family for the issue, which has been circulating on gossip publications and on the Internet.
“Pasensiya na at hindi ko naman ginusto na masira yung pamilya ninyo. Dumating lang talaga yung panahon na… nagkaroon ng isyu-isyu (I’m sorry that you got dragged into this issue, which has been blown out of proportion),” he said.
Don’t you love how he apologizes to the “OTHER woman”?
Krista and her family flew to the US to watch Pacquiao’s match at the MGM Grand.
Wake up and smell the coffee
The rumored affair has reportedly affected Pacquiao’s relationship with wife, Jinkee.
News that Pacquiao’s marriage is on the rocks spread after Jinkee was caught on camera getting emotional during a Thanksgiving Mass in the US. The priest then was delivering a sermon about the importance of love in a family.
Both Pacquiao and Jinkee arrived last Friday. Krista and her family, meanwhile, are still in the US as of Sunday. – GMANews.TV
