- Atong Ang, a wealthy businessman in the Philippines, was finally interviewed about the feud of the prominent Barretto siblings
- He was asked about his association with Gretchen Barretto since they are rumored to be in a relationship
- The said business tycoon also explained his much-talked-about photo with Gretchen which was taken when they were inside a plane
Atong Ang finally gave an explanation about his controversial picture with actress Gretchen Barretto while they were inside an airplane.
KAMI learned that the photo immediately circulated in the online world and it prompted a lot of netizens to think that the two prominent personalities are in a “secret affair.”
The former “Magkaribal” star was spotted sleeping near the chest of the said business tycoon and they were also seen holding each other’s hand.
In an exclusive interview with Noli de Castro of ABS-CBN News, Atong finally clarified why it was him and not Tonyboy Cojuangco who was beside Gretchen.
He explained that Gretchen is just like his sister, contrary to the claim of Marjorie Barretto that he is the “powerful boyfriend” of the veteran actress.
The businessman also provided a reason why he was holding the hand of the older Barretto during their trip to an undisclosed destination.
“Si Gretchen kasi, very close sa akin, parang kapatid ko talaga yan. Katabi ko. Kwento nang kwento, inaantok na ako. Ang daming sinasabi kasi ma-kwento talaga yan,” he quipped.
“Sabi ko, ‘G, matutulog na muna ako, sige na.’ Kaya ginanon ko yung kamay niya. ‘Tama na muna, matutulog na muna ako.’ Siguro stewardess yung kumuha ng picture. Hindi ko tinatanggi yun,” he added.
