Can’t be tamed! Barretto sisters Gretchen, Marjorie fight in front of Duterte at dad’s wake
What was supposed to be a solemn reunion of the Barretto family turned into an ugly feud as sisters Gretchen and Marjorie almost had a physical altercation at the wake of their father, Miguel, Wednesday (October 16).
According to a report by entertainment website PEP.ph, Marjorie started throwing a fit upon finding out that Gretchen will arrive at the wake.
The situation became more tense when President Rodrigo Duterte arrived.
Quoting eyewitnesses present at the wake, PEP said Duterte tried to patch things up between Gretchen and Marjorie by asking them to reconcile. The latter refused.
At one point during the wake, Gretchen’s niece, Nicole, allegedly tried to slap her.
While guests managed to put some distance between Gretchen and Nicole, the latter stretched out her arm to pull the actress’ hair, making the situation worse.
Members of the Presidential Security Group allegedly intervened to stop the two Barretto relatives from feuding.
Gretchen has been estranged from several members of the family. She only patched things up with her sister, Claudine, this year.
