MANILA – Estranged celebrity couple Claudine Barretto and Raymart Santiago reunited on Sunday to celebrate the seventh birthday of their son, Santino.
In her personal Instagram account, Barretto posted several photos of her with Santiago and their children at the party, which was held at Blue Leaf and had a Minecraft theme.
In June, the estranged couple appeared to have patched things up when Barretto posted a photo of her with Santiago and their kids. This, after they reached an agreement concerning their children through a judicial dispute resolution.
But this proved to be temporary since a month later, on July 14, Barretto told ABS-CBN News that she was planning to pull out from the agreement and sue her husband for "economical abuse," citing recent statements from Santiago's lawyer, Atty. Ruth Castelo, about the ongoing legal battle, Santiago's supposed absence from their children's affairs, and his alleged unwillingness to fulfill his financial obligations.
Both Barretto and Santiago have repeatedly mentioned the welfare of their children -- Santino and 10-year-old Sabina -- in explaining why they took the spat to court, and why they are seeking sole custody of the kids.
