Raymart Santiago To Claudine Barretto: ‘You Are Such A Liar’Raymart Santiago has a message for estranged wife Claudine Barretto: “You are such a liar.”
The message came from Santiago’s lawyer, Atty. Ruth Castelo, in an interview with Marie Lozano for ABS-CBN News’ TV Patrol.
Last May 11, Barretto claimed in an exclusive interview aired through Buzz ng Bayan that there are threats to her life.
Someone reportedly tried to poison her and her kids. Furthermore, someone also shot at her house.
Barretto also claimed that her first marriage to Santiago in 2004, a civil ceremony in Isabela, is fake. She also claimed Santiago stole properties from her.
Reacting to these, Santiago’s lawyer said, “Ni hindi namin maintindihan kung papaano sasabihing fake, e kasi ‘di sana sila nagpapakahirap ngayon dun sa mga kaso, wala na tayong iisiping annulment ‘di ba, kung fake yung marriage nila.”
Furthermore, she said that they had the alleged threats to Barretto’s life investigated and reportedly found that there is no truth to these claims. Atty. Castelo said that they coordinated with the barangay office of Malanday and the security group handling Loyola Grand Villas “and we found out that there is no such thing. No slugs were recovered.”
Meanwhile, in a separate report from GMA News, Castelo is also reported to have said that the 2004 wedding is legitimate.
Barretto claimed in her Buzz ng Bayan interview that Santiago only registered the civil marriage in 2006, two years after the ceremony and just a month after their Christian wedding in Tagaytay.
Contrary to Barretto’s claim, Atty. Castelo said that her client registered the civil weddin just a month after it happened.
Furthermore, the lawyer said, according to GMA News, that Barretto’s past actions contradict this claim. She asked why Barretto would use documents for their first marriage in her request for a protection order from Santiago if that marriage is not legal.
According to Atty. Castelo in her ABS-CBN News interview, Santiago wants Barretto to know, “You are such a liar.”
