Raquel Pempengco Still Refuses to Accept Jake Zyrus as a Transgender Man

It looks like the rift between Raquel Pempengco and Jake Zyrus, formerly Charice Pempengco, will never heal. That’s because Mommy Raquel still won’t accept Jake as a transgender man.

On social media, the birthday greeting of Mommy Raquel Pempengco for her son, Carl, didn’t escape notice: “Happy Birthday Son Carl Ceiven Relucio Pempengco… ang kaisa isahang lalaki sa Pempengco clan..”

If it sounds like a dig at Jake Zyrus, it obviously is. After all this time, Jake’s mother still cannot accept who he really is.

And when contacted Raquel to ask if she doesn’t consider Jake a guy, this is what she replied: “Hehehe, di ko alm… ikaw tanungin ko, lalaki ba xa?”

So far, no reaction from Jake yet.
