Businessman Atong Ang recently released a statement to clarify his connection with the Barretto family following a rift between Gretchen and niece Nicole Barretto regarding their relationship to him.
As reported on Push, the issue sparked recently, after Nicole accused her said aunt of “stealing” Ang from her and Gretchen responded by claiming it was Nicole who stole Ang from the latter’s youngest aunt, Claudine Barretto.
In his statement, Ang clarified how he is associated with the three ladies of the Barretto family, starting with Nicole – saying that her mother used to work with him.
“Whatever our relationship, Gretchen has nothing to do with it,” he said.
Ang stated that Gretchen was a business partner, along with her boyfriend Tonyboy Cojuangco, whom partnered with Ang on his casino business in Okada.
He also added that Gretchen is close to his wife.
“As for my relationship with Claudine, I helped her when they had a problem with Mayor Martin Castro’s son. That’s our only relationship,” he added.
