Claire Dela Fuente’s son, Gigo de Guzman, opened up to Karen Davila on her ANC program, “Headstart,” about his late mom.
The famous singer passed away due to cardiac arrest while she was in a hospital for COVID-19.
Gigo shed tears while sharing that his relationship with Claire was complicated and had its ups and downs.
He revealed that his mom tried to make up for their past issues by fighting for him amid his controversy involving Christine Dacera. Gigo was one of the people accused of foul play in Christine Dacera’s death last January.
“Describing our relationship is complicated. We had our ups and downs.
“There was one particular issue back in the past that I think she has been ever since trying to make up for, to show me that she really did love me. That’s why she fought tooth and nail.
“I would say that most recently, we have been closer… It’s hard to describe it because we never really got to close that door.
“This case, honestly, took a lot on her. That’s my only regret — that she didn’t get to see the finish line, na parang, ‘Ma, wala ka nang kailangang alalahanin pa, okay na, tapos na,'” Gigo told ANC.
Claire Dela Fuente was a popular singer in the Philippines who rose to fame in the late ‘70s as one of the “Jukebox Queens”. She was given the titles "Asia's Sweetest Voice" and "the Karen Carpenter of the Philippines”.
