Charice Pempengco’s mother has moved on from her daughter leaving home last year to be with her partner whom the former doesn’t approve of.


“Kung talagang mahal niyo ‘yung isang tao, matututo kang magbigay kahit masaktan ka,”said Raquel on the matter via “Buzz Ng Bayan,” Sunday.

She claims to understand her daughter’s choice to be happy and live with her “pangalawang pamilya.” The mother reiterated that she’s always accepted Charice’s sexual orientation and had even supported her previous homosexual relationships.

Raquel dismissed Charice’s rumored suicide attempt supposedly due to financial difficulty, which Charice’s grandmother talked about in an interview on “Showbiz Police.”

“Mayroon kaming konting hindi pagkakaintindihan hanggang ngayon,” Raquel said of her mom, claiming that “kapag hindi ko naibibigay ‘yung gusto niya… sisiraan niya ako.”

While Raquel and Charice did not see each other over the holidays, they did communicate via email. Charice is welcome to home, the mom added.

“Wala akong kailangang ibigay na patawad kay Charice kasi hindi siya nagkamali sa akin, ipinaglaban niya lang ‘yung naramdaman niya.

“Naiintindihan ko…as long as maligaya siya, naiintindihan ko kung hindi siya uuwi sa akin.”

Raquel appeals to Charice’s partner, Alyssa Quijano, to heal the family.

“Kung mahal niya si Charice, bubuuin niya ang pamilyang winasak niya,” Raquel said. Manila Bulletin
