[VIDEO]: PBBM Visits Susan Roces’ Wake
The Degree of Closeness
Not many people knew the degree of closeness between Presumptive President Bongbong Marcos and Grace Poe’s family, the daughter of Susan Roces who just passed away. Not because of the alleged blood tie speculations. But because they were friends and colleagues when both were senators. PBBM visited the wake of Roces recently.
There were rumors in the 2016 elections that Grace Poe and Bongbong Marcos are half siblings. However, both denied the gossip. Poe was adopted and is not even blood-related to the Poes. This did not break the degree of friendship they have.
The real score according to Marcos is that; Poe is a strong woman. She does not need his help but he just wanted to be there to console her and to pay respect to the Queen of Philippine movies. Roces is a big loss not only to the industry but to the world, he insinuated. He will always be there for his friend who is like a sister to him.
