Mel Sarmiento vs Herbert Bautista
MEL SARMIENTO – The fiancé of Queen of All Media Kris Aquino confronted actor-turned-politician Herbert Bautista following his recent posts about the girlfriend of the ex-DILG secretary.
Recently, the senatorial aspirant took to social media wherein he shared a tweet that some netizens claimed to be a “patama” to the actress over her engagement.
“Mr. President Ping @iampinglacson, na-inspire din tuloy akong mag-propose. Kaso, sayang… may napili na po sya. #TOTGA #KungMaibabalikKoLang,” he noted in the caption on his post.
Kris Aquino was once linked to Herbert over a romantic relationship. Apparently, it did not blossom.
However, his post seemed an insult to the former Interior secretary.
Mel Sarmiento has released an official statement with regards to the online posts of the former Quezon City mayor about Kris.
Sarmiento reminded the politician that talking about past flames in public is improper and ungentlemanlike.
He also lambasted Bautista, who’s seeking a Senate seat in the 2022 elections, that “he should know better than dragging other people to get public attention.”
He stressed that as a public servant, he should have flaunted his accomplishments instead of recalling his past relationship with the actress.
Herbert Bautista has yet to issue any reaction with regards to the statement of Sarmiento.
To recall, It was on Sunday, October 24 when Kris announced her engagement with former Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) Secretary Mel Sarmiento.
However, no date has been set for their highly anticipated nuptials.
