Despite the rumors linking him to sexy actress Krista Ranillo, Manny Pacquiao arrived with wife Jinkee at the grand opening of their souvenir boutique called Team Pacquiao at Robinson’s Place on December 8 looking like the perfect couple. If anything, both of them claimed that the intrigues surrounding their marriage made it stronger than ever. “Hahaha! Siyempre asawa ko ‘to e. Mahal ko ‘yan. Marami kaming mga anak,” Manny said. To which Jinkee quickly added, “200% [yung pagmamahal ko sa kanya].”
Even though the public has yet to hear Krista’s side of the story, Jinkee stressed that there’s no point talking about it any more. “Tapos na yun. Tuldok na yun. Wala ng question mark sa isip ng mga tao.” Jinkee further shared that she had chosen to leave such negative issues behind and concentrate on what the future holds for her family. “Kailangan for my family, for my children… I will survive! Kailangan i-survive ko lahat, i-surpassko lahat. Kailangan maging strong lang talaga. Test lang ito ng Panginoon sa akin. I know that the Lord wants us to be together,” she confidently stated.
Jinkee was also wearing a diamond-studded ring, which some of those present even joked, served as Manny’s peace offering. Jinkee on the other hand was simply all smiles when asked about her husband’s luxurious gift. “Nagulat lang ako na naisip niya magbigay at happy ako na may gift ako this Christmas.” Jinkee also revealed that she will give her all-out support to Manny’s upcoming fight with Floyd Mayweather despite her worry that it’s too early for him to engage in another boxing showdown. “Parang nakakatakot kasi maaga pa. Mas okay siguro kung May. Pero sabi naman niya siya ang nakakaalam sa sarili niya.”
