Iba ang angas! Marjorie Barretto claims Atong Ang wanted niece to leave dad’s wake
Marjorie Barretto has blamed the tension at the wake of her father, Miguel, on gambling lord Charlie “Atong” Ang.
In an exclusive interview with ABS-CBN news anchor Karen Davila Tuesday (October 22), Marjorie admitted she was furious when her sister Gretchen arrived at their father’s wake because Ang had told her niece Nicole beforehand to leave the venue.
Gretchen and Ang arrived together at the Barretto patriarch’s wake at Heritage Memorial Park in Taguig City.
“They were claiming na mainit na ulo ko. Hindi lang po ako. ‘Yung pamilya ko po, dahil na-offend kami really about Atong sending our nieces and nephews out of the wake of our father. That’s the tension,” she said.
Marjorie said Nicole Barretto, whom she claimed was previously in a romantic relationship with Ang, received messages from the gambling lord’s family to leave the wake before he arrived.
“[They] said, kung puwede umalis muna sila Nicole at ‘yung mga kapatid niya, dahil parating si Gretchen at si Atong. Bigla na lang lumuha [si Nicole]. Apo siya, e. She had more right in the wake,” she said.
Marjorie said Nicole felt “embarrassed” by Ang’s supposed request because her family would see the gambling lord was now with Gretchen.
“Parang sampal na sa pagmumukha niya ‘yon. It was not the place to do that,” she said.
