  • Claudine Barretto calls Raymart Santiago a 'deadbeat dad'

    The actress and mom of two took to Instagram to ask for prayers for the swift recovery of her son Santino, who's confined in the hospital for undisclosed reasons. "Pls be well. Palanggas, pls pray for Santino. I'm just here, anak. Just you & me. We will be ok. Not leaving you. Never giving up on you. I luv u, anak," Claudine wrote as caption. In another Instagram post of Santino in the hospital with his lolo Miguel Barretto and uncle Mito Barretto, Ckaudine took a swipe at her ex-husband Raymart Santiago, saying, "Thank u Lord for the wonderful Men our life. @mitobarretto @miguelbarretto no need for #deadbeatdad."

    The dictionary defines "deadbeat dad" as "a father who neglects his responsibilities as a parent, especially one who does not pay child support to his estranged wife." In the comments, Claudine explained that Santino had already been confined in the hospital for two days and they have not yet heard from Raymart. (pep.ph)
