WATCH: Erich Gonzales on Vanessa Matsunaga’s Message: “They Want Me To Speak Up, I Will Tell All”

Daniel Matsunaga’s sister Vanessa asked actress Erich Gonzales to clear the issue that money was one of the reasons behind Erich and Daniel’s breakup.

In one of Erich’s Instagram post, Vanessa wrote, “I know you answered the interview with 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.”

“Remember, you were with us for two years, you were included in every family plan, trips, weddings. We took care of you and your family and took in consideration your preferences and watched over you. I’m not here to measure what we did for each other because this is love and it comes with it naturally. All I’m saying is I’m very sad to see people defaming not only you and my brother but also my mom and family,” she said.

“We all love you to the best of our abilities and with all our hearts. It’s your choice to unfollow us, delete your photos, some people move on that way, ‘out of sight out of mind,’ others would like to treasure the memories, whatever works best right? Whatever it is we respect that and chose to give you your privacy,” Vanessa told Gonzales.

“Anyways, I’m asking you to please address this issue, people are calling us users, but you know best and you know the truth. I’m counting on your integrity, dignity and your love for our Lord Jesus,” she added.

In response to Vanessa’s message, Erich sent her statement to ABS-CBN News’ Marie Lozano.

“Gusto ko na po sana manahimik na lang at mag-move on na pero sila ‘yung comment ng 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,” the young actress said.

“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.”

Erich said that she decided to keep quiet about the breakup, but that if provoked further, she would speak up.

“They want me to speak up, I will. I will tell all,” she said.
