Emotional Gretchen refuses to fight back

An emotional Gretchen Barretto refuses to fight back despite the accusations made against her by her own mother Inday and older sister Gia.

 Speaking live on “The Buzz” on Sunday, the socialite-actress said she’d rather not talk about the ongoing feud involving her family because it is fight that’s supposed to be solved privately.

“Hindi madali ang pinagdadaanan ko ngayon. Hindi madali na pinag-uusapan ka ng buong Pilipinas. Hindi madaling pakinggan 'yung pinagdaanan ko, 'yung childhood ko. [Pero] away pamilya ito, hindi dapat isapubliko. I learned this week that a tight embrace means the world to me. I learned that madami din palang nagmamahal sa akin. I also learned that life is not perfect and I can’t have everything. Dominique, my daughter, knows my story. Many years from now, lilingunin niya itong nangyari sa akin. Maaalala ni Dominique na my mom never fought and that's what's important for me. That's what I want to leave behind."

The latest feud to rock the Barretto family stemmed partly from comments on the image-sharing service Instagram, supposedly made by Gretchen, saying that her sister Claudine is not happy that their niece, Julia, is starting to make a name for herself in showbiz.

In response to reports on the alleged exchange on Instagram, Inday released a statement denying Claudine's supposed plans to "block" Julia's road to stardom.

Subsequent statements made by Barretto siblings Joaquin and Gia showed the divide among family members. Gia sided with her mother and Claudine, while Joaquin sided with Gretchen, saying Claudine's "condition" should be addressed.
