Jake Zyrus, previously known as Charice Pempengco, told the story of his life for the second time on “Maalaala Mo Kaya.” However, what was seen in the recent episode was different from what was previously aired.
On the newer version, the singer’s mom treated him quite differently than what people thought.
Apparently, it sparked an argument between the two which led, the mother, Raquel Pempengco to plans of filing libel complaints against Zyrus. In addition, she also wants to press charges on the people behind MMK.
According to Raquel, Jake’s story tainted her name. She appeals that the scenes on the episode were false. The mother even called her child a liar.
“Iparating mo na lang sana na pinag-iisipan kong magsampa ng kaso [ng libelo] dahil sa pagpapalabas ng istorya ng buhay ko na hindi nila ako kinunsulta.Kasama na rin sa demanda ang anak ko na si CHARMAINE CLARICE RELUCIO PEMPENGCO,” Raquel said.
She added that her name was not only ruined in the country, but also internationally since Zyrus is known worldwide.
“Sobrang nasira ang kredibilidad ko bilang tao at bilang ina.Buong mundo ang nakaalam, hindi lang buong Pilipinas. Kulang na lang sana ay pinatay na ako ni Charice.”
Moreover, she mentioned that there are many people who can prove that what Jake told MMK were lies.
Furthermore, it was seen in the drama anthology that Zyrus’ mother was forcing him to join singing contests.
Dina Bonnevie played the role of Jake’s mother. Also, in the show, Raquel physically and verbally abused the singer.
The scenes on the show also depicted that the mother wasted the money that Jake earned while he was at the peak of his career.
Meanwhile, Raquel said that she was already talking to a lawyer.
