In a previous report by KAMI, Dennis Padilla went viral due to his now-deleted posts on June 22. In his posts Dennis said Julia, Claudia and Leon Barretto forgot to greet him on Father’s Day.
Lolit Solis took to social media to pen her frank thoughts on the subject. Manay Lolit said the celebrity father’s sentiment is understandable, yet she believes that young ones are not really fond of greeting adults on special occasions. The entertainment columnist also expressed that Dennis should have not expected greetings from the three since they are living apart.
