Is there an ongoing rift between Dennis Padilla and his celebrity daughter Julia Barreto?
Reports surfaced that Julia was not seen visiting the wake of Padilla’s six-year-old niece Gene Justine from dengue. Gene Justice is a direct cousin of Julia.
Dennis said that for him, it’s just okay that Julia did not visit because he is counting those who visited his niece’s wake instead of knowing who did not visit.
“Hindi, e. It’s all over the news naman. I think alam naman nila. Saka yung mga common friends naman namin from showbiz, alam naman nila dahil marami naman sa mga kaibigan natin sa entertainment industry from TV and movies, marami namang dumalaw. Sina Vice Mayor Joy Belmonte… marami naman sa mga kaibigan natin dumalaw at nagbigay ng suporta,” Dennis said, confirming that there were no attempts from Julia to visit the wake.
However, he said this is the time that he needs moral support from his friends and family.
“Ang binibilang ko na lang kasi, yung mga dumating. Hindi ko na lang binibilang yung mga hindi dumating kasi…Kumbaga, sa akin, hindi naman nila obligation ang pumunta, pero mas maganda sana kasi pag pamilya kayo, sa mga oras ng pagluluksa, dapat kayo magkita-kita. Kasi dito mo kakailanganin ang moral support ng bawat isa, e, di ba?” Dennis said.
He continued: Actually, pag masaya naman ang tao, okay lang, tawagan lang ayos na, e. Pero pagka ganito, may tragedy sa pamilya, kailangan talaga nandun ka. Kailangan yun, e. Ako, ganun ang kinalakhan ko, e
This stirred up some speculations that Julia is not on good terms with her father Dennis.
Dennis broke his silence and admitted to the media that he and Julia have not been talking for a long time.
“Si Julia, medyo matagal na kaming hindi nag-uusap nun, mga April yata. Busy lang, saka nagkaroon din kami ng konting tampuhan din niyan lately,” he said.
Furthermore, Dennis revealed that Julia’s rumored boyfriend Joshua Garcia is one of the reasons why they had a fight.
“Medyo [nagkatampuhan kami because of Joshua…konti,” he said.
“Nakalimutan din ako batiin ni Julia nung Father’s Day… nakalimutan. Saka baka wala lang siyang load that time kaya hindi niya ako na-text,” Dennis added.
