In a previous report by KAMI, Jinkee Pacquiao shared photos of Israel Pacquiao’s sweet moments with Mommy Dionisia, the mother of Manny. Jinkee also thanked Mommy D for spending quality time with her grandchild.
Jinkee’s name also caught the attention of netizens due to Lolit Solis’s viral post about her.
