Due to the separation issues that is circulating in the marriage life of the celebrity couple, Claudine Barretto and Raymart Santiago, they have now decided to end up the rumor by giving a joint statement referring to the said issue.
Here is the Full Joint Statement of Claudine and Raymart that they forwarded to a entertainment related site, PEP.ph
“In recent days, there have been numerous negative rumors about our marriage and our relationship, all of which have caused us, our children, and our families undue stress, strain, and unnecessary tension.
“In order to dispel all these unfounded innuendos, we now publicly declare, in the simplest and clearest terms that:
“WE ARE STILL TOGETHER, we have not separated, we love each other, and we both value and cherish our marriage and relationship.
“Any issues that we may have are private, and do not detract from, nor diminish, the strength of our marriage. We ask that the public allow us to deal with our minor concerns without the glare and glee of media speculation that only hurt us and those we love.
“We are both deeply committed to our two (2) children, whom we love unconditionally. As concerned and devoted parents, we shall zealously protect their privacy, and their right to be untouched by malice and gossip. We plead with the public to respect their rights: they are innocent children unjustly harmed by the baseless gossip about us.
“We hope this JOINT STATEMENT settles and lays to rest all questions about us as a couple, and as individuals.”
The separation issues of the couple spreads out like a bomb after that incident on a bank in Quezon City, last Tuesday, October 25, wherein the actress have failed to withdraw money from a joint bank account with her husband Raymart Santiago.
