Claudine Barretto Reveals Fake Wedding With Raymart SantiagoClaudine Barretto said that before her March 2006 wedding to Raymart Santiago in Tagaytay City, they were married civilly in Isabela in May 2004. However, this was a fake wedding since this has not been registered.
If she only knew that their marriage in 2004 was not registered, she wouldn't go through with their 2006 wedding, Claudine said. Raymart only registered that civil wedding a month before their Tagaytay wedding.
By then, Claudine couldn't say "no" anymore and she couldn't back out from the wedding. She and Raymart lived in together since 2004 since she thought she was married to him. Sabina's, Claudine's adopted daughter, papers were even problematic.
She should have learned her lesson in 2004 when Raymart didn't register their wedding. But then, she went through with the wedding in 2006 still.
Claudine also revealed there are people who's trying to kill her. There were two nights already that someone tried to shoot her--one night, there were three shots and the other night, there were four shots.
She couldn't remember anymore if it was the second or third attempt on her life. "That’s why lumalabas na rin ako para sabihin na hindi ako natatakot sa inyo, and I’m back."
Atty. Ferdinand Topacio, Claudine's legal counsel, said there was one time wherein someone illegally entered the actress' house. This has been reported to the police already. They were able to get the identity of the trespasser.
Claudine shared that it's difficult to be a single mother to her two kids--Sabina and Santino--especially because of what she is going through in her life right now. Thankfully, the two kids can understand already the pain she has to undergo to keep them.
They were her strength, the actress added. They understand her and she can even talk to them on a deeper level.
"Pinaiintindi ko sa kanila kung ano yung mga nangyayari, and sinasabi ko sa kanila, pag meron silang hindi naiintindihan, they can just ask me and of course andiyan dapat palagi yung assurance na nandiyan ka. Kasi ang pakiramdam nila naabandona sila."
Sabina knows more about what's happening. It's only fortunate that she is not exposed to social media and she is very focused on her studies.
One of the important events in Sabina's extra-curricular activities is joining the G-Force Kids. They will have a show at the Smart-Araneta Coliseum.
Claudine sent tickets to Raymart through his lawyer, but she doesn't know if he will attend that event. Claudine said it will be a negative thing for Raymart too if he won't attend.
"Siguro parang sa araw na 'yon, sana truce muna."
Meanwhile, Raymart admitted that their civil wedding was not registered in 2004, but it's better if his lawyer, Atty. Ruth Castelo, will be the one to give the details.
Atty. Castelo said their civil wedding happened on May 2, 2004 in front of a mayor in Isabela City. However, she said that it was registered days after the ceremony.
That was a Christian wedding. But because Claudine wanted to have a Church wedding, they decided to hold one in 2006. That 2006 wedding was the one that wasn't registered.
"Saka bakit sinabi ni Claudine na fake, e nag-submit pa siya sa court ng kopya ng marriage contract nila. Yon yung nag-file siya ng petition ng PPO. Naka-attach 'yon, tapos ngayon sinasabi niya na fake."
Raymart said that the media should check if the alleged attempts on Claudine's life is really true. They should check with the security of the Loyola Grand Villas.
Even the attempted poisoning of her family was submitted to the court. Claudine, however, cannot prove it. Raymart's camp also questioend the alleged gun-shooting incident.
"Hindi natin alam kasi ang dami na niyang ganyang kuwento, e. Dapat may incident report din dun sa subdivision, di ba? Kung wala nun, e di ibig sabihin another one of the stories."
Atty. Castelo said Raymart would attend Sabina's event if it is for his kids. However, he doesn't know what Claudine's intentions are. "Kasi ang daming private opportunites before na gustong makita ni Raymart ang mga anak niya, hindi niya nakikita. Ngayon kung kailan sa Araneta saka siya imbitahin, di ba? Iniisip ni Raymart kung bakit."
Raymart and his camp are also currently fixing the annulment procedures.
