Claudine Barretto blasts Raymart Santiago over son Santino's incident with relative
MANILA, Philippines – Claudine Barretto and estranged husband Raymart Santiago are at odds again. Claudine is accusing Raymart of not defending their son Santino, who was allegedly hurt by his relative [Raymart's nephew], during one of the Santiago gatherings.
On Tuesday, November 29, Claudine posted a screengrab of Raymart’s interview with Pep about the incident on Instagram. In the caption, Claudine wrote: “Away bata talaga Raymart! Ten years old si Santino at yung pamangkin mo 27 years old. Bata ba yun??? Duwag ka! Minsan lang kahit minsan magsabi ka naman ng totoo. Your kids called you a liar after this interview. Stay away from us!! I mean it pay the freaking Ariers. Coz you only have up to Nov.30 sabi ng court. Unless gusto mo uli magbayad ng bail sa mga warrant of arrests mo. Ibalik mo na mga ninakaw mo then leave us in peace!”
(Kids fighting, Raymart! Santino is 10 years old and your nephew is 27 years old. Is he still a kid? You are a coward! Just for once please tell the truth. Your kids called you a liar after this interview. Stay away from us!! I mean it, pay the freaking Ariers. Coz you have only up to November 30 according to the court. Unless you want to pay for the bail for your warrant of arrests. Just give back what you stolen then leave us in peace!)

Claudine also posted the X-ray of Santino as well as the photo of Raymart's nephew and mom.
In an interview with Pep, Raymart described Claudine’s accusations as “mababaw” (very shallow) and that she was making an issue of something which could be settled among themselves. Raymart said that he asked his son to share his side of the story.
“According to Santino… nagpakuwento din ako, naglalaro daw sila ng bola na papel, nagbabatuhan sila. (I asked him to tell the story, they were playing with a paper ball and hit each other.)
“Tapos nagbabatu-batuhan, tumama sa ulo, nagkapikunan.” (After that they were hitting each other, it hit the head, there was a conflict.)
Raymart then added: “Kumuha daw ng kutsilyo [si Santino], daw, ayun yung sinabi naman nung side ng pamilya ko. (He [Santino] went to get a knife, according to what my family said.)
“So, pinigilan na huwag mambato kasi kutsilyo na yun, e. Ayun lang,” he said.
(So, they just stopped him from throwing the knife. That's all.)
Raymart then said he was surprised with Claudine’s statements over what he called “away-bata” (kids fighting). He said that his nephew simply stopped Santino from hurting anyone because he was throwing things around and could not understand why Claudine is upset with him.
“Ngayon, pinalaki niya. (Now she made the issue bigger.)
“Pati sa akin galit dahil hindi ko daw kinakampihan ang anak ko. (Now she's also angry because I supposedly did not side with my son over what happened.)
“Sabi ko, ‘Anak ko ‘yan, bakit hindi ko kakampihan? 'Di ba, away-bata ‘yan, ayusin na lang.’” (I said 'he's my son, why would I not side with him? Isn't this a kids' fight? This can be fixed.)
Raymart said he and Claudine were not at the event that time, which the actress also told Pep in a separate interview.
In an earlier series of posts on Instagram, Claudine shared photos of Santino and his medical certificate after being examined in the hospital.
In an interview with Pep, Claudine said that she has spoken with the mom of and person who hurt Santino. She said there were raised voices, but she stood her ground.
She also expressed her dismay over her estranged husband, saying he could not protect their children. She said she worked hard for her kids to have a relationship with Raymart and that she never took them away from his family.
The actress said that she plans to file abuse complaints after the incident. – Rappler.com
