Jake Zyrus mom Racquel Pempengco, reacts over MMK episode

Racquel Pempengco, mother of Charice (now Jake Zyrus) expressed her reaction on the MMK episode that featured her daughter’s life.

Last Saturday (August 27, 2017), the episode titled “Jumper” became a revelation, as the story circled on the mother-daughter relationship of Charice and Racquel. In the story,  Racquel who was played by Dina Bonnevie was put into bad light. It was shown how Racquel allegedly physically and verbally abused Charice during her younger years. As the story progressed, it was portrayed that Racquel spent Charice’s earnings lavishly and wastefully.

In an interview, Racquel Pempengco refuted the ugly depiction of her character as a mother.

Sa umpisa pa lang puro kasinungalingan na. Walang katotohanan. Sa buong storya na sinabi ni Charice, lahat ito walang katotohanan puro kasinungalingan ang lahat ng sinabi ni Charice dito,” ani Pempengco. Ilang beses siyang lumayas, ilang beses bumalik puro ako ang pinasasama niya palagi. Ang katotohanan ay 2010 pa pinabayaan na kami niyan ni Charice. Tinanggal ako sa trabaho sa Amerika pa lang. Bakit ako ang sinisisi niya sa tax niya hindi naman ako ang manager niya at accountant niya. Puro kasinungalingan ang sinasabi dito lahat. Hindi siya nag-iisip. Grabe si Charice masyado niya akong pinasama,” 

“Pinapalabas nila dito ako humihingi eh sila yung nag-aabot, di ko matanggap,” . Racquel said that in her birthday last 2015, Charice sent money but she did not accept.

As for hurting Charice physically, racquel explained – “Hindi ko pinagbuhatan ng kamay iyan. Nasabunutan ko lang iyan ng nabuksan ko ang laptop niya na ayaw niyang umamin na tomboy siya, di pa siya nagre-reveal noon”.

When she was asked for any reason she can think of as to why Charice made this exposé .

Gusto niya talaga akong tanggalin sa picture niya bilang magulang. Sinabi niya nakasama niya tatay niya. Di niya nakasama tatay niya simula’t simula pa, sinungaling iyan.”

Racquel, who has last seen Charice in September 2015, made another speculation on why Charice went this far. She related it to the current state of Charice’s career.

“Walang alam na trabaho si Charice kaya pinipilit niya na i-survive ang career niya. Lalo na ngayon at wala na siyang boses na ipagmamalaki,”

After all these controversy, Racquel Pempengco still managed to give a message for her daughter.

“Isa lang mensahe ko sa kanya huwag na niyang dagdagan pa ang kasalanan niya. Ako pilit kong ipinagtatanggol ko ang anak ko pero sa ginagawa niyang ito ako ang idinidiin niya. Hindi ko na alam kung anong sariling pag-iisip mayroon si Charice.”

“Kung iyan ang ikakasiya niya na sirain ang magulang niya eh tatatanggapin ko kung doon siya masaya,” 

In Raquel’s FB account, she has a series of posts of reactions for the said MMK episode.

 

Meanwhile, Charice posted a meaningful message in her IG account.

I love you all. x jake
