Sharing a video on her Instagram account, Vina explained that she’s backing Robin not because they have been colleagues in the showbiz industry but because she knows her former boyfriend has a good heart.

She added that she has personally witnessed Robin’s generosity when people would come up to him in the past for help.

Tinatanong pa ba yan kung sino po ang numero uno sa aking listahan sa Senado. Kung ‘di ang Utol ko na si @robinhoodpadilla. Hindi po dahil sa naka trabaho ko s’ya sa industriya kung ‘di dahil sa kabutihan at layunin ng kanyang puso sa bawat kapwa,” Vina wrote in the caption of her Instagram post.

Born Robinhood Fernando Padilla, Robin is dubbed as the “Bad Boy of Philippine Action Movies” with several box-office hits such as “Grease Gun Gang”, “Anak ni Baby Ama,” and “Bad Boy 2.”

Robin is the youngest brother of actors Rommel, Royette, and Rustom Padilla, who had since come out as a trans woman BB Gandanghari.

The actor’s signature “simpatiko” appeal have captured the hearts of many actresses, including Vina, Kris Aquino, Sharon Cuneta, and Ruffa Gutierrez.

But his career suffered a major blow after he was convicted of illegal possession of firearms and sentenced to 17-21 years of imprisonment in 1996. While serving his sentence, Robin converted to Islam and married Liezl Sicangco in a Muslim ceremony.

Then President Fidel Ramos pardoned Robin after 2 years of imprisonment. He made a comeback in the showbiz industry as he starred in TV shows “Puwedeng-Puwede,” “Basta’t Kasama Kita,” “Pilipinas Got Talent,” and “Sana Dalawa Ang Puso.”

Robin was also one of the hosts of the defunct noontime show “Wowowee” where he met actress and TV host Mariel Rodriguez. The two dated for a few months before tying the knot in 2010.
