Raquel Pempengco calls for Jake Zyrus’ help after death of mom, brother

Raquel Pempengco, mom of singer Jake Zyrus, is hoping to receive help from her child after the deaths of her mother "Tes" Pineda Relucio and brother Robert Pineda Relucio. 

In an exclusive interview with PEP.ph, Raquel shared that Robert passed earlier today, April 6, after suffering injuries from a motorcycle accident in Quezon City. This happened days after her mom Tes died last Sunday, April 3. 

According to Raquel, Jake hasn’t reached out to her since these tragic events occurred. “Wala pang paramdam si Charice (Jake’s old name) hanggang ngayon,” Raquel said. 

She continued, “Need ko talaga ngayon ang tulong. Namatay naman ang kapatid ko na nagbabantay sa nanay ko. Kaninang umaga lang siya namatay.” 

“Tulungan niya sana ako at hindi ko kakayanin. Ako lang ang inaasahan ng pamilya ko,” Raquel answered when asked to give a message to Jake. 

She also mentioned that Jake is currently in US and has not spoken to her in a long time. 

Raquel is need of financial assistance for the cremation of her beloved mom and brother. Those who wish to send in their help may send it through her Gcash account: 09956497143.

In February this year, Jake made headlines after posting his first shirtless photo since his transition as a man, while also spreading awareness about body-positivity and expressing pride.
