Claudine was hospitalized Thursday night after an alleged physical confrontation with her sister, Marjorie, at the wake of their father, Miguel.
The youngest of the Barretto siblings is reportedly confined at St. Luke’s Medical Center in Bonifacio Global City, DZMM Teleradyo reported.
Claudine is said to have sustained injury on her hand and complained of dizziness after the incident.
A certain Ruby Baguhin brought the actress to the hospital. Said to be a staff of Gretchen Barretto, Ruby claimed Marjorie “attacked” Claudine. She also alleged young actress Julia got involved in the altercation.
Few hours after the incident, Claudine posted a cryptic quote on social media which read: “Are you proud of who you have become?”
The supposed physical confrontation between Claudine and Marjorie came in light of the latter’s reported encounter with Gretchen the night prior.
In an ABS-CBN News article, Gretchen said she sought to reconcile with her family. Note that the actress had long been estranged from her parents.
“It was all so nice until Marjorie had a nervous breakdown,” she was quoted to have said.
She confirmed that President Rodrigo Duterte attempted to reconcile them.
“(He)was asking Marjorie to shake my hand for the sake of respect of my father, but Marjorie was not happy that I was there to reunite with family,” she said.
It’s no secret the Barretto family has been rocked by family feud in recent years.
It was in 2018 when Claudine and Gretchen reconciled, with Marjorie still out of the picture.
Many believe their rift intensified when Gretchen and Claudine allegedly showed support to another actress amid recent “third party” speculations involving Marjorie’s daughter, Julia.
