“I would rather be known in life as an honest sinner than a lying hypocrite.”
On Wednesday, March 10, Claudine Barretto posted this quote on her Instagram page with just “#sideswipe” as the caption.
It is a cryptic post alright. So naturally, a guessing game erupted on the comments section and the majority says it’s for no less than her niece Julia Barretto.
“Para kay Julia Barretto?” a netizen wrote. While some went right ahead and tagged Julia, or even told Claudine to do so. “Paki-tag si Julia Barretto," one of her followers said.
Julia’s mom Marjorie is currently at odds with Claudine and their older sister Gretchen—a result of a long-standing family feud that worsened after their father’s passing in October 2019.
Julia’s name has been on everyone’s lips since she and boyfriend Gerald Anderson went public with their relationship just last week.
Her name was also previously dragged into Gerald’s breakup with ex Bea Alonzo, whom both Claudine and Gretchen have expressed their support to by sending flowers.
Claudine has had her fair share of controversy recently as well after speaking out against ex Raymart Santiago and his current girlfriend Jodi Sta. Maria.
She alleged that the two didn’t give her a heads-up before announcing their relationship on Instagram to spare her kids with Raymart, Sabina and Santino, from finding out about it that way.
