- A post circulating online claimed that Claudine Barretto got into an accident
- The post said that Barretto sustained multiple gunshot wounds and was “dead on the spot”
- However, it has been reported that the claim was misleading
An online post claimed that actress Claudine Barretto was “dead on the spot” after sustaining gunshot wounds in Quezon City.
However, KAMI learned that the claim was misleading.
A post from the website manila.tv-patrol.com. claimed that Barretto was involved in an accident.
“Ambush: Claudine Barretto, patay matapos pagbabarilin habang sakay ng kotse,” it read in the headline.
Meanwhile, it was stated in the description that she was dead on the spot.
“Dead on the spot ang dating actress na si Claudine Barretto,” it mentioned.
The video displayed on the website showed a report which looked like ABS-CBN’s TV Patrol. However, the video plays for 5 seconds then requires the viewer to log in to Facebook and share it before they can finish watching the entire video.

However, as reported by Rappler, Barretto is still well and pretty much alive. No reports from reliable news sources claimed that she was involved in an accident and passed away.
As of October 23, she was still being quoted by the local media and she still actively posts on Instagram.
The photo of Barretto used in the misleading post was from when she was rushed to the hospital on October 17 following the controversial scuffle involving her sisters Gretchen and Marjorie Barretto.
Claudine Barretto is a veteran actress and known as “The Optimum Star.” She first appeared in the popular 90s show “Ang TV.”
