reports that a photo Gretchen Barretto posted on her Instagram account became controversial when a follower going by the handle “Marjoriekabit” left several comments against the Kapamilya actress and her sister, Marjorie Barretto.

“Gosh, nakakahiya kayo. Bkt hnd magwork si marj to support her children (Gosh, you’re embarrassing. Why won’t Marj work to support her children?)?” read the first comment.

“Does it seem like it matters to me?” Gretchen had replied. “It does seem like you are so envious that you need to make an account to bash us… It is pure joy to know you are so consumed by our lives keep it going keep stalking we know who you are. Hope you take sometime to rest & take good care of your 2 kids & most of all hope you find time to get the mental help you need. Medical city or perhaps rehab. Peace be with you.”

“Why don’t you meet with Atty. Topacio?” Gretchen added, possibly referring to Ferdinand Topacio, the lawyer whom her youngest sister Claudine Barretto chose to represent her in her cases against her estranged husband Raymart Santiago.

In reply, “Marjoriekabit” insisted that she isn’t envious of Gretchen’s life and continued to attack the two celebrity siblings.

“You and marj are so pathetic,” the user said, adding that she was surprised to find out that Claudia, one of Marjorie’s daughters, is studying at BSM (probably referring British School Manila), when Marjorie allegedly doesn’t have enough money to pay the school’s hefty tuition fee.

“Unless she has a new sugar daddy. If you know what I mean,” she added.

“You don’t have a luxurious life because you pushed and fought everyone in ABS-CBN… You are playing holy when everyone knows all your politician boyfriends left you the minute they found out about your drug use & mental problem,” Gretchen fired back

She also defended Marjorie, saying that she her sister has businesses and that she can afford to send her children to school.

“You don’t want to be a mistress? The question is… Does anyone at all want to be with you? Your husband has filed for annulment already my dear. Wake up. With that kind of attitude you will have no one,” Gretchen added.

“Marjoriekabit” then alleged that the capital for Marjorie’s businesses came from Gretchen and Tonyboy, adding that the couple’s daughter Dominique had even called Marjorie’s family “dependent and parasite.”

“At least I’m still married,” she added. “How about you? Are you contented with being called a mistress and Dom being an illegitimate child?”

To this, Gretchen replied, “Yes I am. Because Tony is with us. He stood by me all through 19 years. (that means something) Dominique means the world to tony & that says it all. You are married only until the annulment is granted. Your husband is not with you. What Tony has done for me, no married woman will ever experience.”

When “Marjoriekabit” asked again why Gretchen was allegedly using Tonyboy’s money to support Marjorie and her family, the actress replied, “It is pointless to argue with a mentally ill & drug addict. You go get help, maybe after then I’ll have the time for you.”

Based from Gretchen’s answers, a lot of people have been speculating that she engaged in a word war with Claudine, with whom she has been at odds with for months now.

“I know for sure who the basher is simply because many months ago when we were still in good terms (this basher said all these things to our faces) not only did she tell us these same things but even threatened to expose this,” she said. “I know no one who is so angry at both Marj, her children, me & my daughter at this intensity. This basher is doing exactly what she said she will do. We refuse to take her insults & even hurt our children.”

Gretchen has since made her Instagram account private after the incident.

“I have put my settings on private to be able to post what I feel will make my followers happy. I don’t need negativity on my page. I will block any nasty or negative comments. Love, live and laugh.”
