Manny Pacquiao’s former girl loses case


PhilBoxing.com


The Quezon City Prosecutor’s Office on Monday cleared the boxing celebrity Emmanuel “Manny” Pacquiao of the child-support complaint filed against him by his former lover, Joanna Rose Bacosa, with whom he allegedly had a child.

In a five-page resolution, Assistant City Prosecutor Maria Grace Casaclang dismissed the case of violation against women and their children, or Republic Act 9262, against Pacquiao for lack of evidence.

“For one to claim that her child was deliberately deprived of financial support, an act punishable under RA 9262, one must first prove that the child is entitled to support from his putative father,” Casaclang said.

City Prosecutor Claro Arellano and Second Assistant City Prosecutor Arthur Malabaguio, Division IV chief, approved Casaclang’s recommendation.

Bacosa filed the complaint on February 8, 2006, after Pacquiao allegedly stopped giving her financial support for the child.

Pacquiao is 27 and has a wife and three children. The two-time world boxing champion’s wife Jinky recently gave birth to a baby girl they named Mary Divine Grace.

Bacosa said in her complaint that he met Pacquiao in March 2003, a month after she was hired as a receptionist and “spotter” at the billiards hall of the City Square at the Pan Pacific Hotel in Malate, Manila.

She said Pacquiao frequented the bar until they became close, had a relationship and found herself pregnant by Pacquiao. They continued seeing each other during her pregnancy, she said.

Pacquiao, after his arrival from the United States from a training stint, gave her P20,000 for apartment rental in August 2003, and handed her P300,000 as a Christmas gift in November 2003.

On January 2, 2004, Bacosa gave birth to a baby boy at the San Juan de Dios Hospital in Pasay. She said Pacquiao was happy when he learned of her childbirth and occasionally visited them.

In May 2004, however, they lost contact with each other after Pacquiao came from the US. Since Pacquiao told her to resign from her job and promised to support them, she and her child now have no other means for survival.

On November 23, 2005, Bacosa received a call from Pacquiao telling her to bring their child to Cebu. They arrived in Cebu the next day and met Pacquiao but he did not give them financial support. He provided only pocket money and sent them back to Manila.

On January 31, 2006, she received a call from Pacquiao, who she said threatened to kidnap the child if she brought the case to court and demanded child support.

Pacquiao denied Bacaso’s allegations, saying in his counteraffidavit that he could not believe she would file a complaint against him despite all the help he had given her and the child.

Pacquiao said he did not refuse to give financial support to the child though he did not know who its real father was. He said his support to Bacosa and the child does not prove that the child was his. He added that even if they had had a relationship, it doesn’t prove that he sired the child.

Casaclang said the documents and a picture of the three of them taken together also did not prove that Pacquiao was the child’s father.
