Julia Barretto and Dennis Padilla

Marjorie Barretto has jumped to her daughter Julia Barretto’s defense after several people threw some shades at the young star.

One of them was veteran entertainment journalist and television host Lolit Solis who talked about her former husband Dennis Padilla and Julia’s relationship.

In the comment section, some netizens are pointing their fingers at Marjorie as the reason why her children from her former husband are not on good terms.

Others are also saying: “like mother, like daughter.”

The 47-year-old actress asked online users to refrain from judging people.

Marjorie also noted how “it’s the other way around” when a netizen commented that their kids are “worthless.”

The mother of Julia also thanked an online user who defended the actions of her 24-year-old daughter.

The netizen tagged Dennis for being not a “good provider;” and that his viral interview with Ogie Diaz put Julia in a bad light.

“When he knew there’s bad blood between them, that’s need healing, he’s still pushing through. He could have said that issue is all in the past.”

Dennis is partly to be blamed for the actions of his kids, the netizen said.

“I don’t like Julia, but I think it’s too unfair to portray her as a bad daughter. It’s not her fault that her parents separated.”

Recall that early this month when Julia’s family was embroiled in controversies.

These include the vlog of her father, which she deleted.

Many believe it has something to do with the story of Dennis where he confronted Gerald after Julia was tagged as the third party in the controversial breakup with Bea Alonzo.

The story of Dennis as narrated in the vlog of talent manager Ogie is now also unavailable online.

Marjorie, on the other hand, pointed out that her children are still carrying the surname of her former husband – which was among the topics Dennis and Ogie discussed during the first part of the interview.
