Claudine Barretto Visits Rico Yan's GraveMatinee idol Rico Yan would have turned 39 years old today if he didn't succumb to cardiac arrest on March 29, 2002 at the Dos Palmas Resort in Palawan. He was with friend Dominic Ochoa at that time, and has just broken up with Claudine.
His remains lie at the Manila Memorial Park in Paranaque City and up until now, his fans still commemorate his birthday every March 14.
Claudine's and Rico's relationship was clouded in controversy because Rico's family denied the actress’ access to the actor's remains because Rico was allegedly brokenhearted at the time of his death. Claudine reportedly began dating Raymart Santiago while she and Rico are still together.
Rico, who came from well-to-do family, was a youth model and has been with Claudine since almost the start of his showbiz career.
Twelve years after, Claudine was seen visiting Rico's grave with his family. It seems that time has healed the wounds since Claudine even posed in a picture with Rico's older sister, Geraldine.
In a photo on Instagram, Claudine was seen sitting on a monoblock chair and holding on to Rico's grave. A photo with a fan also showed Claudine, who looked like she just cried.
She even took a picture with Tricia Sandejas, another ex-girlfriend of the actor.
