Members of Team Pacquiao on Tuesday denied claims of a Facebook user that the house in a photo being circulated in social media is owned by a mistress of Sarangani Rep. Manny Pacquiao.
Team Pacquiao declined to name the owner of the house, but said that the person is one of their members.
A picture of the house, where a car with Pacquiao's campaign sticker was parked in front of it, was posted on Facebook by Lorraine Marie Badoy.
"Guess what I saw when I went on a run this morning in my village? Manny Pacquiao's campaign car in front of his mistress' house. (Jinkee, sa may bandang Soliven 3 corner Finland st. Yung mansion doon. Go, girl.)," said Badoy's message posted along with the picture.
She was referring to the Loyola Grand Villas in Quezon City.
She added in her post: "It really is common knowledge who lives in that house on Soliven corner Finland: Manny pakyaw's mistress."
A Facebook user commented on the post with an old photo of Pacquiao walking with a group of men and not far from them was a girl, later identified as actress Krista Ranillo.
Team Pacquiao said that the car was also owned by the same member.
They added that several supporters of Pacquiao's senatorial run have put stickers on their vehicles, including passenger buses.
Pacquiao is running under the ticket of Vice President Jejomar Binay's United Nationalist Aliance. —report from Mav Gonzales/ALG, GMA News
