Francis Magalona’s alleged daughter, Gaile Francesca, said that she was not affected by the public’s mixed reactions after she and her mother, Abegail Rait, claimed their relationship with the deceased OPM star.
In Cata Tibayan’s exclusive report on “24 Oras Weekend'' on Saturday, Francesca said that she doesn’t mind the comments.
“I don’t mind the comments po kasi I know the story and so, no comment na lang po ako dun. Basta, I know the story, that's why I’m not affected at all, also my family. All I know is that I am my father’s daughter,” the 15-year-old said.
She and her mom shared their story in a vlog published by Boss Toyo Production, where they sold a jersey allegedly worn by Francis M.
“Nung una po, ayaw ko po pero na-realize ko rin po na kung nasa bahay lang po siya or nakatago lang po siya sa closet, I felt na mas better po siya if prineserve since may story din po ‘yung jersey na po na ‘yun,” Francesca said.
She was only six months old when Francis M died in 2009.
Despite not meeting the Master Rapper, Francesca said that she knows he would tell her, “Kaya mo ‘yan, be brave.”
After Abegail and Francesca spoke their truth, netizens had mixed reactions.
Some sympathized with them, while others said they felt sorry for Francis M's wife, Pia Magalona, and their family. —Carby Basina/VBL, GMA Integrated News
