She added that her family never expected this to happen especially since Ricardo is known as a generous person who always helps others. Furthermore, Marina denied that she lives a lavish lifestyle with the actor.

“Napakabait niyang tao. Dami niya tinutulungan. Ito nga nangyari, tinutulungan lang din niya yung kilala niya.
“Pero, you know, of course, lessons learned.
“Never talaga in our lives, never namin ma-imagine na mangyayari sa amin ito…
“Meron kasi diyan, yung iba akala nila napakayaman namin kaya nangyayari daw sa amin ito. Friends. Wala po.
“Unang-una, sasabihin niyo yung lifestyle. Friends, hindi niyo kami kilala.
