21 Sep - Julia Barretto's mother Marjorie and aunt Claudine Barretto recently defended the young actress, following Dennis Padilla's reaction to Julia's recent interview with Karen Davila.
Julia is Dennis' daughter with ex-wife Marjorie. He had taken offence when Julia shared in the interview that she couldn't run to her own father when things are tough. Julia also added that she and her dad have not spoken in a while.
On 19 September, Marjorie posted a photo of her daughter on social media, and wrote, "Dearest Jul, I LOVE you with the kind of love that you can trust. Love that you can depend on, and the kind that will protect you and never betray you. Maybe you need to hear this today... I am so proud of you, Juli. I am so blessed to be able to call you my child."
"Here we go again, back in our family bubble shutting off the noise outside. Only choosing to be grateful for the good things that is in front of us. Remember Jul, God is all knowing," she added.
Meanwhile, Claudine also went on Instagram to ask Dennis to stop airing his grievances on social media.
"Have pity on your children. Please stop. Let's talk," she expressed.
Dennis earlier expressed how upset he was following Julia's statement that she was not ready to fix their relationship as there had been so much pain over the years.
The comedian-actor stated that his children only know half the truth, and asked Karen to interview him as there are many errors in what Julia knows.
