Honeylet is sticking with Duterte despite his affairs. Find out why
Davao city Mayor Rodrigo Duterte doesn’t want to separate from his common-law wife despite his various affairs.
Cielito “Honeylet” Avanceña, who at 46 years old is 24 years younger than Duterte, was quoted in an Inquirer report as saying that she had asked Duterte for separation but was rejected.
Avanceña said she would have left Duterte if the rumors of philandering were true.
“Hinamon ko na siya ng hiwalayan, just in case meron talagang totoo, ayaw naman niya,” Avanceña said at a fundraiser for Duterte at Manila Golf Club, Forbes Park.
Avanceña said Duterte was naturally friendly to women. Duterte had kissed his women supporters on the lips during some of his campaign rallies.
“Talagang friendly siya sa women. Babae ang lumalapit sa kanya. Pati lalaki nagpapa-selfie. Pati bakla. Hindi naman siya gwapo, bakit ganoon ang charisma niya sa tao?” Avanceña said.
Avanceña said Duterte was not a chauvinist and was in fact pro-women, owing to his appointment of women in several high-ranking positions in Davao city.
Asked when the right time is for both of them to get married, Avanceña only said: “God’s time.”
