Kapuso actress Claudine Barretto attended the wake of AJ Perez at Christ the King Church last Sunday condoling the family who was left behind by the young actor who died in a vehicular accident.
Claudine has worked with AJ in the teleserye “Iisa Pa Lamang” when she was still on ABS-CBN.
Another reason why she attended the wake is to support, Steph Ayson, AJ’s girlfriend. She believes Steph is going through the same pain she felt when her ex-boyfriend Rico Yan, who is currently being compared to AJ, died 9 years ago.
“Although 21 na ako noong nangyari sa akin ‘yun, she’s 17 pa lang. Mahirap kasi it had to happen to somebody who’s close to me. So masakit para sa akin na makita ‘yun, malungkot,” she said.
Claudine assured Steph that she will always be there to support her while coping with AJ’s death.
