Hindi lang si Honeylet ang honey! Duterte admits he has a young girlfriend
Cielito “Honeylet” Avanceña may be known as President Rodrigo Duterte’s common law wife, but she’s by no means the only woman in his life right now.
In a speech before Filipino-American executives Friday (July 14), Duterte said he has a younger girlfriend.
“May isa pa akong girlfriend na bata. Eh matanda na itong dalawa eh,” he said, referring to Avanceña and his ex-wife, Elizabeth Zimmerman.
“Totoo ‘yan. Eh, bakit ko taguin?” he remarked.
Veronica Duterte, the President’s daughter with Avanceña, said her parents got together after her father’s marriage with Zimmerman was annulled.
In an interview with a columnist of the Philippine Daily Inquirer, Avanceña said the Duterte will lose his house and her support overnight should he ever fool around.
“Subukan niya kung hindi bukas meron nang karatula sa bahay namin na for sale. Wala na siyang mauuwian at wala nang magsusuport sa kanya,” columnist George Sison quoted Avanceña as saying at the birthday party of Presidential Chief Legal Counsel Salvador Panelo in October 2016.
