He found himself having to defend his girlfriend, Heaven Peralejo, from those saying that she's only after his family's money.
But Jimuel Pacquiao is not the only one on that camp against those baseless rumors --he also has his own mother's side, Jinkee.
Jinkee, wife of world champion boxer and senator Manny Pacquiao, has given her approval of Peralejo, saying mainly that she likes that the young actress is religious.
"Tinanong ko siya [Jimuel] kung Christian siya [Heaven]. Kasi yung advice ko sa kanila na, 'Maghanap kayo ng Christian,' " Jinkee said.
" 'Yung Christian talaga na malapit kay Lord, kasi 'yun, importante talaga 'yun sa akin. Ayun, ganu'n din naman sina Heaven," she said, adding that she and Peralejo get along well.
Jinkee was with Jimuel during an event in which her son was launched as one of the endorsers of clothing brand BNY.
Of the malicious comments about Peralejo, Jimuel said: "It's normal po na we can’t please everybody."
"Ang masasabi ko lang po is, sa mga nagba-bash, they don't really know who she is and what she is like. For me, it’s OK, they don't really know who Heaven is," he said.
It was back in March when Jimuel and Peralejo first acknowledged to being a couple.
