- Singer Jake Zyrus explained his side on the allegations that he is only needed by his family for financial purposes
- This is after allegations circulated saying Raquel requested Jake to visit his grandmother for money
- Jake bravely said he will not accept the plea if he finds out the rumors are true
Kapamilya singer Jake Zyrus bravely reacted on the issue that his mother Raquel Pempengco wants him to visit his grandmother for financial purposes only.
KAMI learned that the singing sensation will not accept the request of his mother if it is meant for him to shoulder everything.
Jake expressed that he is the kind of person who always lends help even to his relatives despite the issues they are facing against each other.
However, he emphasized that he will not agree if all the help for his grandmother will be coming from him.
"But I'm not going to accept na they do all these things to make me feel na ako ang lahat ng gagawa because… (kung) tutulong ako, tutulong ako,” he quipped.
"You know, ako yung taong maipagmamalaki kong hindi ako madamot. Kahit na anong sakit, kahit na anong pain ang ilagay mo sa akin… pamilya ka man o hindi, tutulungan at tutulungan kita,” he added.
The singer also thinks that it is unfair if he was the only one tapped to help his ailing grandmother.
Jake explained that he is only a grandson and his lola has children who can also be contacted for help.
"I'm her grandson. She has children, I think it's kinda unfair na ako lang yung laging pinuntirya,” he pointed out.
"I mean, I cannot just keep quiet about it because all my life, I've been trying to clean my name in front of these people who always laugh at me, who always make fun of me, who always tell me that I am the devil in the family,” he added.
Jake threatens that he will keep on fighting for himself against the tirades of his family.
"But for you to crush me to my inner core, I'm not going to stay silent,” he concluded.
In a previous article by KAMI, the celebrity already broke his silence on the recent plea of his mother.
Jake is a Filipino singer who was born on May 10, 1992. He was formerly known as Charice Pempengco before he decided to undergo gender transition. He rose to fame when he joined Little Big Stars in 2005 and finished in the third spot.
