In what seems to be the messiest breakup of 2017 (so far), Erich Gonzales has spoken up about the rumors that money is suspected to be the reason for her breakup with Daniel Matsunaga. Earlier today, Daniel’s sister Vanessa Matsunaga posted in Erich’s IG comments section (which has since been disabled) to ask her to address the "money issue":
“Daniel asked our family, friends, and fans to keep quiet and not fight back or even reply to any comments, but the truth is I can't keep quiet when people are invading my privacy, asking us if we owe you money and saying that you are spending on us! I can't believe this is even happening. How can people even speculate about this, right? I know you answered the interview [to] the best of your ability, I understand it's hard to answer too many questions, but I honestly wish you had addressed the money issue. You guys don't owe an explanation to anyone and I know both of you are hurting and want privacy right now. Please look back at the good times. Remember, you were with us for two years, you were included in every family plan, trips, weddings.”
Erich has since sent a lengthy and loaded response to Vanessa through ABS-CBN news reporter Marie Lozano:
"Gusto ko na po sana manahimik na lang at mag-move on na pero sila 'yung comment nang comment sa social media. Social media is not the proper venue. I turned off the comment section of my Instagram account kasi pagpipiyestahan lang ng mga tao, lalong hahaba at hindi matatapos.
"Hindi ako mayaman, Vanessa. Tama ka; mahirap lang ako, hindi ako kasing yaman ng napangasawa mo. Pero sa mundong ito, ang realidad, hindi lang mayayaman ang nate-take advantage. Mas maraming mahirap ang napapagsamantalahan.
"They want me to speak up, I will. I will tell all."
