Gretchen Barretto isn’t done dropping bombshells after figuring in a feud with her relatives at the wake of her father, Miguel, earlier this week.
In a series of Instagram stories posted Saturday (October 19), Gretchen reacted to the claims of her niece Nicole Barretto on what caused the altercation between the two of them at the wake.
Nicole’s reply was sent to Gretchen by a netizen, who supposedly chatted with her niece about the incident.
Talking to the netizen, Nicole denied she was first to attack Gretchen.
“She (Gretchen) and her boyfriend attacked my aunt and i carried to her to the other side so that she won’t hurt tita marj,” Nicole said, referring to Gretchen’s estranged sister, Marjorie.
Nicole claimed Gretchen kicked her “countless of times and even after I got away an was about to exit the chapel, she sprinted to me and pulled my hair so hard i almost fell to the floor.”
“If somebody did not catch me, my skull would’ve been broken,” she said.
Nicole, the daughter of Gretchen’s brother Jay-Jay, said she went to the United States to study “after what Gretchen and Atong did to me.”
“I’m stating the fact that my own aunt stole my boyfriend. The next travels to the states was for my education. Since I do have an education and finished a doctorate,” she said.
Gretchen posted screenshots of her niece’s reply with her own comments. On Nicole’s claim that she “stole” Ang, a gambling lord, the socialite said: “Oh, I’m sorry. I was told that Nicole stole atong from her aunt Claudine.”
“I was told by Atong nilako si Nicole sa akin ng nanay niya,” she added.
On their confrontation at the wake, Gretchen told Nicole: “You wanted to hurd me, not protect Marjorie. Dont fool yourself.”
“You just gave birth & youu have a boyfriend & yet, hinahabol mo a cliente mong si Atong,” she said.
Gretchen said “Dada,” presumably referring to Ang, is going to address Nicole’s version of what happened at the wake.
Ang was with Barretto when they visited the wake at the Heritage Memorial Park in Taguig City on October 16.
Gretchen told Nicole to stop trying “to be a Bea Alonzo” and portraying herself as the victim.”
“I only attacked you to defend myself. you made a mistake by doing so. I am trained to protect myself,” she said.
As a parting shot, Gretchen called her niece a “con artist.”
“Ask your mom to find you a new wealthy man to hire you,” she said.
