Former Producer Says Gretchen Is ‘Heartbroken’ Over New Spat With SisterThe former producer of films starring Gretchen Barretto says that the actress is “heartbroken” over the new feud she has with sister Claudine Barretto.
“She’s been crying all day,” said Robbie Tan, former Seiko Films producer, according to the Philippine Daily Inquirer.
“Gretchen is pretty strong-willed. It takes a lot for her to break down. She was really affected by this issue,” he added.
The Barretto sisters, particularly Claudine and Gretchen, are at it again rekindling a feud that raged eight years ago.
Inday Barretto, the family matriarch, has “disowned” Gretchen. Not that it is the first time Inday had done so.
Still, the Inquirer reports that the issue is very much affecting Gretchen.
“Gretchen can’t understand why she’s being condemned by her mom in the media,” Tan told the Inquirer.
“She feels her parents are not aware of the whole story. The Gretchen I know is a good daughter. When I produced her movies (in the 1990s), she worked very hard,” the former producer said.
He recalled that when Gretchen was 18, she approached him “to ask for a job so that she could help her family.”
Furthermore, Tan said that Gretchen was very supportive of her sister then and that she was even the one who convinced Tan to give opportunity to Claudine.
