Mariel Rodriguez came to her husband Robin Padilla’s defense after a blog post claimed that he, including other guests, used public funds to finance their recent trip to Russia with President Rodrigo Duterte.
"FYI. [my husband] paid for his airfare and hotel. He did not accept a position in the government, ticket pa kaya at pa hotel tatanggap siya? Hellooooooo! stupid 'tsuwariwap' blogger. Know your facts!" Mariel wrote on her Facebook as she reposted the said blog post.
Robin is known to be a staunch supporter of the President.
