The Office of the Vice President (OVP) spokesperson Barry Gutierrez told the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) Deputy Administrator Mocha Uson to stop dragging them into her issues.
In a short statement, Gutierrez said that Uson should spare Vice President Leni Robredo from her silliness.
“Huwag nga niya kaming idamay sa kalokohan niya,” Gutierrez said.
The former singer and girl group member trended recently as she was allegedly to be pregnant with the child of actor Robin Padilla.
Uson then disputed the rumors on her Facebook page saying that she’s sure that the ones spreading it are those who are against the current administration. She also mentioned that the reason why these people started the controversy was that Robredo’s rankings were not high in recent surveys.
“Sigurado ako ang nagpapakalat niyan ay ‘yung mga bitter sa ating gobyerno,” she wrote.
“Alam ng lahat na ako at si sir Robin ay masugid na supporter ni Pangulong Duterte kaya nalang sinisiraan kami. Kulelat kasi sa survey ang pambato nilang si Robredo kaya kung anu-ano paninira ang iniimbento nila.”
Robin’s wife, Mariel Rodriguez, called the rumors “baseless” on her Instagram page and asked the public to leave her husband alone as he’s still grieving for the death of a family member.
