Manny Pacquiao, the national boxing hero of the Philippines, is making headlines in his homeland. Pacquiao is involved in an extramarital scandal that some are comparing to the mess Tiger Woods is currently in. I didn’t realize that it was a competition.
In 2006 Pacquiao admitted to having an affair with a woman named Joanna Rose Bascoa. The two are rumored to have a child together.
Now Manny is being accused of having a relationship with Filipino actress Krista Ranillo.
The local media is portraying Pacquiao’s wife Jinkee, with whom he has four children, as understandably devastated and suffering emotional breakdowns in public – which they then videotape, naturally.
The story has taken the Philippines by storm.
