Claudine Barretto and Raymart Santiago Issue Joint Statement

October 29, 2011

From joint account to joint statement, kaloka, LOL. Claudine Barretto and Raymart Santiago have issued a Joint Statement about their reported split up. In their joint statement, Claudine Barretto and Raymart Santiago have denied that they have separated stemming from the incident where Claudine Barretto made a scene in a bank last Tuesday, Oct. 25. Added to that Jennylyn Mercado allegedly had an affair with Raymart Santiago while they co-starred in Futbolilits. In the joint statement, the supposed Claudine and Raymart have stated categorically that they still love each other and that they are very much together as a couple. Here is the complete text of the Claudine Barretto and Raymart Santiago Joint Statement:

“In recent days, there have been numerous negative rumors about our marriage and our relationship, all of which have caused us, our children, and our families undue stress, strain, and unnecessary tension.

In order to dispel all these unfounded innuendos, we now publicly declare, in the simplest and clearest terms that:

“WE ARE STILL TOGETHER, we have not separated, we love each other, and we both value and cherish our marriage and relationship. Any issues that we may have are private, and do not detract from, nor diminish, the strength of our marriage. We ask that the public allow us to deal with our minor concerns without the glare and glee of media speculation that only hurt us and those we love.

We are both deeply committed to our two (2) children, whom we love unconditionally. As concerned and devoted parents, we shall zealously protect their privacy, and their right to be untouched by malice and gossip. We plead with the public to respect their rights: they are innocent children unjustly harmed by the baseless gossip about us.

We hope this JOINT STATEMENT settles and lays to rest all questions about us as a couple, and as individuals.”
