President Rodrigo Duterte admitted that it was an ex-girlfriend who gave him a Mercedes Benz to use as a his official ride after winning the presidency.

In a press conference, Duterte was asked who gave him the Mercedes Benz and he replied: “May mayaman ako na girlfriend noon, she has made good in America.” But he refused to name his ex-flame nor give media a pic of the luxury vehicle.

He said it was in a “private garage” and it has not been registered under his name.

Duterte admitted he would be liable for graft if he accepted the gift. “Bigyan mo ako ballpen, tanggapin ko talaga Isinauli ko ayaw nya tanggapin alangan namn iwan ko sa kalye,” said Duterte.

Duterte joked that he planned to have it raffled off during the media Christsmas party so that whoever would win it would have to explain to his or her editor that he or she was “bought.”
