LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Manny Pacquaio previously denied Krista Ranillo and Ara Mina affair allegations. Now Manny Pacquaio is denying a Jinkee Pacquiao divorce report. In recent years, Manny Pacquaio battled what he called were false reports claiming that he was having separate affairs with Krista Ranillo and Ara Mina. This week, however, Manny Pacquaio is battling what he claims is an erroneous report that his wife Jinkee Pacquiao sought to divorce him last year. The details come just days after the boxer’s “Pacquaio on Obama” comments about marriage.
On May 12, ABC-CBNews reported that the relationship between Manny Pacquaio and his wife Jinkee Pacquiao was alleged strained. The report claimed that the relationship was strained as early as the boxer’s fight against Marquez on November 12, 2011.
Freddie Roach told Steve Angeles of ABS-CBN News North America this week that the couple were not getting along in November 2011. “I said I knew him (Manny) and his wife weren’t getting along before the fight, but I never said that.” But Roach told ABS-CBN that Manny was served with divorce papers by his wife in November. “I never said that in my life, but someone wrote it, and someone lied.” The boxer also told the publication that he was never served divorce papers by his wife.
On May 10, Roach told the LA Times that the couple are back together. “Now, he’s back with his wife, reading the Bible every day, and he’s given up basketball.”
In 2009, Pacman battled Krista Ranillo affair allegations. At the same time, Pacman’s wife was show crying during a Thanksgiving Mass. The matter got more coverage when Gina Alajar wrote on Facebook at the time “If I were Jinkee Pacquiao, I would not give up Manny. Krista Ranillo is not at all worth it!”
Pacman also told news today that he was misquoted in his stance about marriage. He says the Examiner article misquoted him. “I didn’t say that, that’s a lie… I didn’t know that quote from Leviticus because I haven’t read the Book of Leviticus yet… I’m not against gay people… I have a relative who is also gay. We can’t help it if they were born that way. What I’m critical off are actions that violate the word of God. I only gave out my opinion that same s** marriage is against the law of God”. He added “As explained in previous pieces this is more in line with the Manny Pacquiao ,we have come to know, and work with over the years.”
