- Vice President Leni Robredo denies rumors about her dating a congressman
- She said she would not be able to find another man like her late husband Jesse Robredo
- She also says she is very busy with work to think about dating
For Vice President Leni Robredo, nothing can live up to the love she shared with her late husband and former interior secretary Jesse Robredo.
This was Robredo’s response when she was asked in an interview on ANC Headstart about the rumors that she is dating a congressman.
“I’ve been telling people I’ve have enough love to last me a lifetime. Palagay ko, wala na akong makikitang pareho ng asawa ko. [I think I would not be able to find someone like my husband.] I’ve been blessed 25 years to be in a very good marriage,” the Vice President said during the interview aired Friday.
Robredo said she is very busy with her work that there is actually no opportunity for her to long for another partner in life.
“I’m living a very public life. I’m with people 24/7. It’s like there’s no chance for that,” she also said in the interview with Karen Davila.
Robredo has been facing rumors on social media that she is dating a lawmaker. President Rodrigo Duterte even once joked that he will kill that congressman so Robredo would be a widow again and free to date.
But the Vice President has been very reminiscent about her relationship with her deceased husband on social media. She has posted several times on her Facebook some photos of him and the former DILG secretary.
Secretary Robredo died on August 18 after his plane crashed on its way to Masbate airport.
