Amidst new reports that Pacquiao may have a love child with 22-year-old Culinary Arts student Kat Ordoñez, Manny Pacquiao's wife, Jinkee, has fight back.
In response to the latest infidelity allegations, Jinkee had this to say to PhilBoxing:
"I trust him, because he promised he will not get involved with anyone anymore after Krista [Ranillo]," she said.
“I’m the original, not the other woman.”
Ordoñez, of course, found herself in the headlines recently when Pacquiao was photographed attending the baptismal of her child. The photos appeared in Filipino gossip magazines which purported that she was involved in an extramarital affair with Pacquiao and that he had in fact fathered her child.
For what it’s worth, both Ordoñez and Pacquiao have denied any and all wrongdoing.
This isn’t the first time Pacquiao has been accused of being involved in an illicit affair, however. Back in 2009, the Filipino champion was reportedly in a relationship with actress, Krista Ranillo, while the pair worked on the movie “Wapakman.”
“This [latest] rumor is a distraction and a destruction. It will only slow and hurt Manny. I don’t want him to worry,” Jinkee said in that same interview.
She also made it known that she will be traveling to Las Vegas on November 5 and will be by her husband’s side as he prepares for his November 12 showdown versus longtime rival Juan Manuel Marquez.
Pacquiao, for his part, has been in the headlines for a myriad of issues not involving boxing as of late. Just last week, his old accounting firm filed a lawsuit against him for unpaid services at the most inopportune of times. The move re-sparked the murmurs that perhaps the Filipino champion’s financial status isn’t in as great of situation as most previously assumed it was.
Manny has yet to publicly speak out on either his alleged financial difficulties or his purported affairs.
For now, the champ appears hard at work getting ready for his upcoming match versus Marquez, and intent on not letting any distractions bring him down to earth.
