Fighting with your siblings is a normal, amusing part of growing up, but when you’re still squabbling with your brothers and sisters way into your adult years, it’s totally not cute anymore. Unfortunately, it seemed like a number of celebs did not get this memo judging by the number of family feuds we’ve witnessed this year. Read on for a recap of the three most controversial fights of the past few months.
1. ARA MINA AND CRISTINE REYES
Cristine had allegedly maligned her half-sister Ara’s reputation after the latter had reportedly failed to pay her share for a townhouse that they bought for their mom back in 2011. As a result, Ara filed libel and grave coercion charges against her sister in April 2012. Cristine had made several efforts to apologize, even saying sorry on national TV, but Ara reportedly won’t recognize her pleas. Ara only recognized Cristine’s efforts in April 2013, and had since withdrawn the charges she had filed against her sibling.
2. ROBIN PADILLA AND RUSTO PADILLA/BB GANDANGHARI
Robin has long been vocal about his disapproval over his brother Rustom’s decision to come out as a transgender woman named BB Gandanghari in 2009. Their relationship was only repaired a few months ago after BB became gravely sick. He had posted a photo of his son sparring with BB, who was in a hospital bed, and he had called his sibling by her transgender moniker, hinting that he had already accepted her sexuality.
3. GRETCHEN BARRETTO AND CLAUDINE BARRETTO
Gretchen and Claudine have a long history of fights between them, but their latest feud, which erupted in March 2013, was definitely the worst word war they’ve ever had. This time, their other family members were forced to pick sides between them. Gretchen had the support of her siblings, while Claudine was backed by their parents. This led to massive revelation of their family’s many secrets, such as Claudine’s reported hospitalization for substance abuse and Gretchen’s alleged maltreatment at the hands of her mother. As of press time, there’s still no end in sight for the controversial clan’s feud.
