MANILA, Philippines – Jinkee Pacquiao, wife of boxing icon Manny Pacquiao, has bared her soul over the alleged affair of her husband with a young sexy actress during her interview with YES! magazine’s January 2010 issue.
For one, Jinkee said she firmly believes that Krista Ranillo was with Manny in Los Angeles, California when the People’s Champ guested on American talk show "Jimmy Kimmel Live." A purported video of them leaving the studio has been posted on YouTube.
Jinkee also told YES! how hurt she was after reading reports on the rumored affair between Manny and Ranillo. She admitted that she wept because of the rumors.
Amid talk that Ranillo was spotted in Baguio City with Manny, Jinkee also disclosed that some of her friends had even prodded her then to follow her husband. In mid-September, the boxer trained in Baguio for more than 4 weeks for his match with Puerto Rican Miguel Cotto.
Jinkee also told the magazine that there is no need for her and the Ranillo camp to meet and discuss the issue.
Months after the controversy broke out, Ranillo is still keeping mum on the issue.
The actress, however, promised that she will address the controversy “in time.”
Instead of commenting on the issue, Ranillo expressed her love and gratitude to her fans for continuously supporting her.
Aside from her family, Ranillo said she also draws her strength from her supporters.
“Thank you sa lahat ng mga supporters... pinapanood pa rin nila ako at sinusuportahan… I just want to say thank you because I draw my strength from them also ... Merry Christmas and I really love you all!” she said.
Ranillo shared that her appearance on “May Bukas Pa,” “Rated K” and “ASAP ‘09” received high ratings.
“I’m just really happy that a lot of people are supporting me,” she said.
She said she feels blessed because of her many projects and endorsements. She bared that more projects will come her way next year.
Meanwhile, Ranillo said she will spend Christmas in the United States with her family. Report from Ginger Conejero, ABS-CBN News
