MANILA – The alleged affair between Manny Pacquiao and Krista Ranillo continues to heat up.
Despite the denial and “no-comment” remark from both camps, pieces of evidence - photos and video – that purportedly prove the romance between the two have surfaced on the Internet.
A video of Pacquiao and a woman, believed to be Ranillo, leaving the “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” show in the United States has been posted on video-sharing Web site YouTube.
Pacquiao guested in the late-night talk show before his match with Miguel Cotto of Puerto Rico.
The footage has been posted by celebritynationVids that also wrote: “I caught boxing champion Manny 'Pacman' Pacquiao leaving the Jimmy Kimmel Live show. Manny didn't bother to sign the autographs for about 70 fans who were there to show their support to him. He was with a woman who wasn't his wife. So that’s probably why he didn’t stop!”
Photos of Pacquiao and Ranillo together in Baguio City are also spreading in social networking site Facebook. The Filipino boxing icon had trained in Baguio City before flying to the US for his “Firepower” clash.
The photos, which were sent to ABS-CBN News, were taken in Camp John Hay Club House and Baguio Cathedral. They showed Ranillo emerging from a van after Pacquiao.
According to her road manager, Ranillo will fly back to the Philippines from California Tuesday next week to fulfill her commitments here.
Pacquiao and Ranillo are the lead stars of the upcoming movie “Wapakman.” Rumors about their alleged affair began during the filming of the movie.
Pacquiao, 30, is married to Jinkee, and they have four children. Ranillo, on the other hand, is single, according to her talent manager. The rumors allegedly put a strain on the pound-for-pound king's marriage. -Report from Marie Lozano, ABS-CBN News
