Raquel Pempengco will give the 700-million lotto jackpot prize to Jake Zyrus if ever she wins it. In a Facebook post, Raquel explained why. "Kung sakaling manalo ako, ibibigay ko kay Charice (Jake Zyrus' former name) para hindi na niya gawin pa ang pambababoy sa pagkatao ko at di niya na ako gawing masama sa madlang people. Pagsisisihan mo yan balang araw," she stated.
Raquel's Facebook post came after the recent interview of Jake Zyrus with showbiz website PEP, wherein the singer expressed his frustration over why his family still paints him as the "evil" one despite the fact that they ask him for help in times of need. "The sad thing is tanggap ko na 'yun, na ako na 'yung demonyo sa kanila. But I'm not going to accept na they do all these things to make me feel na ako ang lahat ng gagawa because kapag tutulong ako, tutulong ako," Jake stated in his interview.
Jake's grandmother was recently admitted to the ICU.
In response to the singer's statement, Raquel maintained that they are not asking Jake for monetary assistance but for his presence amid the illness his grandmother is battling.
