Sharon Cuneta broke down during her Instagram Live last June 29, as she opened up about what their family had been through for the past weeks.
In the nearly hour-long video, the Megastar revealed that the whole “#HijaAko” issue involving her daughter Frankie Pangilinan and a netizen named Sonny Alcos who allegedly threatened to rape her, had taken a huge toll on her health.
"I didn't want to say this, but it has affected us mentally, emotionally. I got sick, because when it's emotional and mental, it will come out in the physical. I got sick. Kaya hindi ako tumataba dahil wala akong gana. Dalawang gabi 'yung dinner ko, dinuwal ko dahil sa stress," she shared.
Sharon apologized on behalf of the people targeting her daughter, as well as her other children Miel, Miguel, and her daughter with Gabby Concepcion, KC.
“I'm so sorry, honey. You don't deserve that,” she said to Frankie, who didn't appear in the video but was sitting off-frame. “And in the end, that's not what matters. Physical beauty fades. She's really beautiful, but they shouldn't do that to sisters, they shouldn't do that to children, they shouldn't do that to women. I am your mother. I am KC's mom, I'm your mom, I'm Yellie's mom. How dare they. I love you all equally,” she added.
When the Megastar began to tear up, she was comforted by Frankie. She said, "See how hard it is for me? See, my daughter is the one comforting me pa? Why are you so bad? Why do you do this to my children? Why? When I see Frankie's face, I just break down.”
But even with all the controversy that surrounds her family, Sharon ended her Instagram Live hopeful as she shared the words her family lives by.
"I trusted God, and even when it's hard to, I know He's always with us and will never leave us or forsake us. I have such faith in Him, that's true," she said.
"And you know what my mom and dad used to tell me? 'Hayaan mo sila, anak. Tandaan mo 'to: maghintay ka lang. Mapalad ang inaapi.' Tandaan niyo 'yan, lalo pag wala kayong ginagawang masama," she added.
Last June 22, the National Bureau of Investigation began their probe on Sonny after Sharon filed a complaint.
