Former stage actress and showbiz personality Cynthia Patag and singer Jim Paredes are currently in hot waters after spreading another lie against President Rodrigo Duterte using the death of an individual.
Patag on Saturday posted a message on Facebook which allegedly came from Paredes’ wife Lydia that a certain Noli Asensio dies after being abducted and drugged. She insisted that Asensio was a victim of Duterte’s war on drugs since he was already recovering from drug addiction.
SCOOP IT MIDDLE
However, after a few hours, Asensio’s wife, Iwi Laurel denies the rumor saying that she was with her husband’s side when he gone into cardiac arrest.
Their daughter, Nicole Laurel Asensio who’s also with them in the ER and witnessed how her father died, later expressed her pain and disappointment to how anyone could use her father’s death “to fuel their political scheme.”
What makes Nicole more furious was when Paredes did not apologized after confronting him through a private message but instead explained that what her wife said was never meant to be shared in public.
Several celebrities and personalities including Leah Salonga and Rajo Laurel were deeply saddened and outraged for what Patag and Paredes did.
Patag and Paredes has been rooting for the presidency of administration candidate Manuel Roxas so it’s not suprising anymore if both are active critics of President Rodrigo Duterte.
