There’s a 3rd Mrs. Duterte? Rody entrusts ‘3 wives’ to soldiers
Is there a third Mrs. Duterte?
President Rodrigo Duterte on Thursday (August 24) suggested that Honeylet Avanceña may not be the last woman in his life when he spoke to soldiers in Marawi City.
In a speech before the members of the Joint Special Operations Task Force Trident, Duterte vowed to “serve” soldiers as payback for their sacrifices for the country.
He then asked them for a favor.
“Pag ako ang namatay, may tatlong asawa ako, kayo na lang ang bahala diyan,” he said.
Amid laughter from the soldiers, Duterte quipped: “Wala.”
Duterte previously boasted he had a young girlfriend apart from Avanceña, his long-time partner.
In a speech before Filipino-American executives on 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.
