Mariel Padilla finally broke her silence on her husband Robin Padilla’s controversial photos with two other women.

What sparked the interest of many netizens was the apparent closeness “Binoe” had with the two female fans. One was seen leaning closely to Robin’s lap and chest while Robin had his arm wrapped around the woman’s waist. Another woman was also holding Robin’s forearm.

The fan was obviously smitten with the actor as she posted another selfie photo with Robin and called him  “my bebe love.”

The photos quickly spread like wildfire online as the female fan immediately deactivated her account.
