Everyone is now hooked on the controversial family feud between the Barretto sisters. It was like a TV series, netizens are waiting for the next events.
The latest update regarding this is involving Nicole Barretto, the niece of Gretchen Barretto earlier accused her aunt of “stealing” Ang from her.
Gretchen denied this by saying that it was Nicole who first “stole” Ang from Claudine.
Apparently, the involved businessman, Atong Ang already said his piece. In an interview with ABS-CBN News’ Henry Omaga-Diaz, Ang clarified how he is associated with each of the Barretto women.
The businessman said Nicole and her mother used to work for him; Gretchen was a business partner, and he once helped Claudine with her personal issues.
This is Atong Ang’s full statement,
“Tungkol kay Nicole, mga four to 11 years ago ay nagkakasama kami nang mommy niya. Kung ano man ang relationship namin, walang kinalaman si Gretchen.
“Si Gretchen kasosyo ko sa casino at saka sabong. Si Tonyboy Cojuangco, kasama ko rin sa casino. May junket ako sa mga casino, si Tony kasosyo ko sa Okada.
“Kung nagkahiwalay kami nila Nicole walang kinalaman si Gretchen. Ang relasyon namin ni Nicole, parang taga asikaso ng mga flights ko and schedule ko noon.
“Iyong relasyon kay Claudine, ako ang nag-ayos nang nagkaproblema sila ng anak ni Mayor Martin Castro –‘yun lang ang naging relasyon namin.
“Si Nicole, pinagaral ko ‘yan, ang nagtrabaho sa akin ‘yung nanay niya. Si Gretchen malapit siya sa asawa ko.”
Nicole earlier said that she went to the US to “move on” from what happened between her and gambling tycoon, Charlie ‘Atong’ Ang.
The “sulutan” issue between Nicole and her aunt Gretchen was said to be the triggering factor that led to the physical confrontation between her and Greta during the wake of Barretto patriarch last week.
