Raquel Pempengco on Jake Zyrus: ‘Nagsisinungaling pa rin siya hanggang ngayon’

Contrary to Jake Zyrus’ claims, his mother Raquel Pempengco revealed that they are not okay and are in fact, not even on speaking terms.

Raquel, in an interview with PEP, even stressed that Jake was probably on good terms not with her but with her mother, Thess Pineda.

“Mula nang inilabas ang MMK, hindi pa siya nag-aano sa akin... ni ha ni ho, sa text or sa call, sa Facebook, wala. Hindi kami okay… yun nga, e, bakit kinakailangang sabihing okay?” she asked.


Jake recently claimed at the Himig Handog presscon that all is fine with him and his mother. According to Raquel, Jake hasn’t been under her care ever since he left their home three years ago. Furthermore, she revealed that Jake hasn’t even made an effort to reach out to her in all those years.

Raquel surmises that Jake’s treatment stems from the fact that he knows that she has a soft spot for him.

“Siguro alam niya kasi ang ugali ko, na kahit na sinasabi niyang okay, kahit anong gawin niyang pagsisinungaling o kahit na ano ang gawin niyang pagkakamali sa akin, ako pa rin ito,” she said. “Kaya niyang sabihin, ‘O, Mommy, uuwi ako anytime,’ tatanggapin ko pa rin.”

Raquel even bluntly shared that she’s really disappointed over Jake’s “lie.”

“Sana man lang, huwag ganun na sasabihin niya na okay, tapos hindi naman. Nagsisinungaling pa rin siya hanggang ngayon,” she said.

Another “lie” that Raquel is pointing at are the life stories that Jake’s been sharing to the media.

“Bakit hanggang ngayon ginagawa niyang kasinungalingan ang buhay niya? Ako, kung tutuusin, ayoko nang maglabas ng kung anu-ano, pero sana man lang… Kung gusto niya ng tahimik, huwag na siyang magsinungaling pa, at lalong nadadagdagan lang ang kasalanan niya sa akin,” Raquel said.

She said, “Kasi, alam mo, pinauulit-ulit ko nga eh mula sa MMK na una, Magpakailanman na palabas, tapos itong MMK... sa tatlo na ‘yan, ano ang totoong istorya? Kasi, lahat yun, iba-iba.”

Jake’s most recent Maalala Mo Kaya episode showed Raquel as a tough and motor mouth mother, who allegedly forces and hurts her child, just so he would participate in singing contests. The episode also tackled how manipulative Raquel allegedly was when it comes to Jake’s income. But what really got to Raquel was how she was depicted as an unloving mother, who failing to accept Jake as a transgender.

“Matagal ko nang tanggap kung sino siya, kasi ako pa nga ang naunang nakaalam,” she clarified. “Sinabi ko pa nga sa kanya na ilihim muna niya dahil malaki ang mawawala sa kanya, pati ang career niya mawawala.”

Perhaps due to frustration, Raquel couldn’t help but ask: “Ano bang klaseng pagtanggap ba ang gusto ni Charice? Wala na nga akong kaalam-alam sa mga pinaggagawa niya ngayon.”

Raquel lamented that she had no idea that Jake underwent a mastectomy.

“Nagpatanggal ka ng dede, ni ‘Mommy, magpapatanggal ako…’ wala. Kung ikaw ang magulang, ano ang mararamdaman mo kung ikaw ang nasa katayuan ko?” she asked.

Until now, Raquel couldn’t understand why people can’t stop judging her.

“Matagal na namang lumalabas ang issue na ‘yan, tapos ngayon humingi lang siya ng sorry, dumating na si Alyssa, dumating na si Courtney… alam ko nang lahat ‘yan. Ano pang pagtanggap ang gusto ni Charice?” she once again asked.

Alyssa Quijano is Jake’s ex-girlfriend while Courtney Blooding was his former manager, who was also linked romantically to him.

In the end, Raquel advised Jake to be true to himself for once.

“Gawin na lang niya, huwag na lang niyang sabihin sa showbiz. Kasi, showbiz na ang buhay niya, pati buhay naming mag-ina, ginagawa na rin niyang showbiz. Mag-effort siya. “Kasi ako, matagal na akong nag-e-effort, napapagod din ako,” she ended.
