Insta Scoop: Leon Barretto Issues Heartwarming Letter to Dad Dennis Padilla


Images courtesy of Instagram: theleonbarretto/ dennisastig

Dear Papa,

I’ve been contemplating whether I should write this to you and if this is even the best way to do so. But It seems that social media is your preferred way to reach us so maybe I can try it too.

Sorry if I wasn’t able to greet you a ‘Happy Father’s Day’. It’s always been an awkward day for us cause we never seem to know where we stand with you every year. I’ve always envied people who never even have to think twice about greeting their dads a ‘Happy Father’s Day’.

For the past 10 years, we have been trying so hard to slowly rebuild the bridge you continuously burn every time you talk about our private matters in your press cons, interviews, and social media. Papa, why does it seem like you enjoy hurting your kids in public? Why do you keep posting cryptic posts about us and allow people to bash us on your own instagram page? Do you think it does not pain all of us to not feel protected by their own father? It’s not that we don’t want to talk to you, but the few times that we do to resolve the issues, you communicate by shouting, cursing, and using hurtful words that traumatize us.

Is public sympathy really more important to you than your own children? Your words have the power to destroy your children, papa.

For years I watched my sisters get torn into pieces because of your false narratives and not once did they ever explain their side nor speak negatively about you in public. It’s exhausting, papa. As the only man in the family, this is me stepping up to protect my sisters.

I need you to know that I want nothing else but to move forward in the safest and healthiest manner possible. I want peace, papa. Can you please stop resorting to public shaming when things don’t go your way?

I long for the day when I can greet you a ‘Happy Father’s Day’ and know that it comes from a place of gratitude and healing.

Leon

  1. Nakakaiyak naman. Yung mga bashers ni Julia dyan, I'm sure may makikita paring mali. Pero ang wish ko lang dito ay sana naintindihan ni Dennis yung letter.

    4. duh the kids are not perfect as well. kita naman kung gaano kasosyal ang pamilyang ito. and obviously dennis does not belong to their circle. this letter so wrong in many ways...sana nag usap sila privately at hindi sa socmed nagsasagutan. kahit sabihin pa nilang hundred times nilang ginawa, gawin pa more!

      Delete
    5. 4:25 kung walang makuhang reply in private, respect it. Ibig sabihin gusto muna manahimik or di pa time. Doing it publicly seems like ur forcing them to reply kase madami ng matang nakatingin. Mas gusto mo ba yon? Nagreply nung public na kase dahil lang sa iisipin o sasabihin ng iba? Mas totoo ang response na makukuha mo kung nireply ka nung private message mo. Madaming taong ganyan para mpilit ka sa gusto nila kakaladkarin ka sa publiko para mahiya ka at sumunod na lang. jan nga di sumikat si julia eh sa pagsasabi ni dennis sa public ng problem nilang mag ama kaya nainis ang mga tao sa knya thinking na masama siyang anak. Ibang mga mgulang they say good things ablut their kids para gumanda image siya naman sinira nya image ng anak nya nagsisimula pa lang sa showbiz.

    13. When was the last time ba taht they talked to him and how did the conversation go. Kasi baka naman na pprovoke din ang dad nila kaya nakakapag react ng ganyan esp since ot seems that he is also in a vulnerable position. Based sa mga pa presscon ni dennis e mukhang matagal na silang di nakakapag usap and nagkikita. Maybe try again and para mas recently esp sonce they seem to be longing for each other ahd the dad seems to be trying to change rin nmn kaya lang not given any chance recently.

  8. I can feel the pain in his son’s letter. I feel bad for the children. Their father seems self-centered. Sigh! Sana in due time magkapatawaran pa rin silang lahat.

  9. Tama ba 'to?!pinahiya sila ng tatay nila so gagantihan din ng pamamahiya?Sana wag umabot sa punto na huli na ang lahat at di na maririnig or mararamdaman ni Dennis ang atensyon at pakikipag ayos sa mga anak.

    1. 03:29 PM Hindi rin naman tama ipahiya niya ang kanyang mga anak in the first place. Don't shift the blame to Leon for speaking up when Dennis started publicly playing the victim via social media in the first place.

    4. Tuwing may paganap si Dennis, wala kang maririnig sknlang magkakapatid kahit sandamakmak ang bashers nila. For me, tama lang yan. Para naman medyo mahismasan ang mga bashers if ever na tablahan man sila ng kahihiyan.

      Delete
    8. Di naman nag pakatatay si dennis. Ama siya pero siya mismo nag papahiya sa mga anak niya social media. Panay post gusto pa ito bash ng tao. Bilang magulang sana, obligasyon niya dapat protektahan ang mga anak sa tao pati na feelings nila.

    10. Anong paghihiganti? The kid just shared his frustrations sa kanyang papansin na ama, akala moh naman napaka perfect na father at laging pinapamukhang masama ang mga nananahimik na anak.

    11. Huy it’s about time someone calls him out no! Jusko ka! So yung tatay ok lang mamahiya ng anak and dapat tanggapin lang ng mga anak ang mga bashings kasi anak lang sila walang karapatan magsalita? Kalokah ka! Grabe nga yung bashings sa mga anak nya sa IG nya diman lang nya magawang i-off ang comments it’s as if he’s taking pleasure reading them pero nangdi delete sya ng comments pag against sa kanya. I know that for a fact kasi dinelete nya comment ko. So anong klaseng tatay yan? Nakakaloka!

    12. Hindi lahat ng pagpapaliwanag nadadaan sa paraan lang na naiintindihan mo. This was an intelligent letter.

    14. Anong pinahiya? The kid is PLEADING to his dad to stop his selfish deeds. He also longs for the day when he can greet his dad a "happy father's day" gratefully and with healing. I hope that you are able to properly comprehend the kid's letter.

    18. parehas naman silang may mali.

      yung tatay pinapahiya yung mga anak. yung mga anak naman, alam naman na matampuhin na yung tatay nila? hidni pa bigyan ng oras. ganyan talaga magulang pag natanda, mabilis magdamdam na

      ano na ba yunng batiin nila tatay nila ng happy fathers day, at ayain lumabas. mukhang ayun lang naman iniintay ng ama nila, nakikipag mataasan pa.

  12. I am not a barreto family fan but i agree with dennis' son concern. Totoo naman na ang gingawa ni dennis di nakakatulong na makuha nya ang kalooban ng mga anak nya dhil tama sya mismo ang dahil.kung bkit lalo lang lumalayo ang kalooban ng nga anak nya. Totoo na shaming ang gnagawa nya eh. Mahilig sya magbitiw ng salita sa media. Di ka matutulungan ng public sympathy. Kya gising dennis bago tuluyang tuldukan ng mga anak mo ang relasyon nyo. Kung merong dapat magbago ikaw yan.

    4. Di mo yata inintindi ung letter ni Leon. Sa first part ng letter, awkward at no meaning nga kung igri-greet nila. Basahin mo din ung pinaka last line ng letter. That would explain din bakit di nila mabati.

    7. So plastikan ganon? Father's day is a heartfelt celebration para sa mga ulirang Tatay uy. Pag binati mo lang kasi responsibility mo yun bilang anak edi parang di naman sincere yun.

      Delete
    8. Nasasabi mo yan siguro kasi u have a good dad. You are probably the type who cant empathize with anyone unless na experience mo rin yun. Ano yun, batiin lang just for the sake na mag shut up sya? LOL as someone who has a dad issue too, yes titikisin ko "tatay" ko.

    13. Just because tatay nila si dennis obliged na sila mag greet lalo na kung hindi naman yun nagpakatatay sa kanila

    14. Binasa mo naman di ba? Akward nga daw para sa kanila. Hindi mo pa kasi nararanasan yung pakiramdam na gusto mong batiin pero hindi mo magawa.

      Delete
    15. I don’t know if you can understand it pero may mga bagay na mahirap sabihin kapag hindi maayos ang relasyon niyo. At sa lahat ng nangyari between Dennis and his kids, even a simple greeting can be really difficult to express kahit written pa. Imagine how they must have felt being judged by people like you.

      Delete
    16. My goodness you cant demand that. Sabi nga ni Leon it has to come from a place of gratitude and healing, meaning, they’re not there yet. Kung mag greet man kaplastikan yun. I would rather not be greeted na lang ano kaysa paplastikin lang ako.

    18. Just because sperm donor, tatay na agad?

      Delete
    19. Yes, because Dennis stopped treating them as his children several times. Everyone knows that Dennis would love to gain public sympathy at the expense of his children with his former partner. No one wants to be associated with a selfish person with no remorse.

    20. Wag kang mamilit kung ayaw ng mga anak. Abuse yang ganyang mentality mo. Ang pagbati sa Father's day eh para sa mga deserving na tatay na nagpakatatay.

    21. Because how can you greet someone na hindi naman naging “father” para sayo? Hndi mo ba naintindihan yung sinabi? 😂😂 O d mo binasa hanggang sa dulo?

      Delete
    22. Mabuti siguro tatay mo kaya you never understand what Leon is saying. I came from a broken family and our dad abandoned us, does he deserve to be greeted on Father’s Day? I don’t think so.

      Delete
    23. Before he ask for something like that, make sure sana niya na deserving siya.

      Delete
    24. Funny. Bat mo naman i gi greet ang sperm donor nila? Hahahaha. I repeat SPERM DONOR na demanding. Ano pala essence ng father's day? Para sakin ang father's day ay para sa mga amang dakila, kahit hindi ikaw mismo ang biological na ama ng bata for as long as ginampanan mo ang pagiging mabuting ama sa mga batang di mo anak, mas dersuv niya ang father's day greeting at hindi para sa mga deadbeat dad na demanding

    As someone na may tatay din na irresponsible. I can understand them not greeting their Dad. Mabait pa nga sila dahil papa pa rin tawag nila, samin we consider him dead na talaga and hindi din worth it tawaging “papa” or “tatay” ang mga buhay binata. Kaya yung mga self righteous na magco-comment dito. Magnilay kayo at ilagay ang sarili sa kinalalagyan nila.

  23. Totoo naman ang sinabi ni Leon na tuwing may paganap si Dennis quite lang talaga silang magkakapatid. Wala kang naririnig na kahit ano sknla publicly. They didn't even share their trauma and such. Pero itong si Dennis basta may chance siya, tirada agad.

    He's secretly enjoying the clout din kasi. He's rejoicing on gaining sympathy while putting his daughter in a bad light. Gaslighter. Sobrang toxic.

    Yan pinagkaiba nila ni Ylmaz. Si Ylmaz makikitang mahal na mahal mga anak niya. Hindi dinadamay ang mga bata sa ano mang issues nila ni Ruffa. Kaya yung mga hata walang 1st hand trauma from their father. Mas madaling magpatawad. E ito si Dennis parang kailangan may kapalit.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Sabi ni Dennis sa interview nya kay Ogie, kaya sya nag reresort to social media kasi pag tinetext nya hindi sya pinapansin. And the only time na pinapansin sya is pag nagpopost sya sa soc med

    ReplyDelete
  25. Nakikipag usap sila kay Dennis, pero ano nakukuha nila saw pakikipag usap? Mura at sigaw galing sa tatay nila. It seems hindi nakikinig o ayaw makinig si Dennis sa nararamdaman na mga anak nya kaya nagsasara na rin puso nila.

    ReplyDelete
  26. As a child who has a dad who is almost same as him, sobrang nakakaiyak to. Ang hirap. Ikaw yung laging majajudge na masama ugali mo porket yung dad mo is magaling magpakitang tao. Sa case ko naman, sya yung bawat konting magandang ginawa sa amin pinagsasabi sa ibang tao pero ni minsan di naman kami nagawang pag-aralin. Tas makakarinig ka pa na ang sama mo sa tatay mo pag nagcomment ka ng pangit against sa kanya. Ordinaryong tao lang ako. Kaya this is a brave post from Leon. May this stop Dennis from future public shaming his children.

    Hugs to Barretto siblings. Kung hindi naging ganon ang mga tatay natin siguro pariwara tayo ngayon. Having a dad like ours made us more responsible. Ipagpasa-Diyos nalang natin ang mga tatay natin at wag maging katulad nila when it’s time for us to become parents.

  29. It’s not that we don’t want to talk to you, but the few times that we do to resolve the issues, you communicate by shouting, cursing, and using hurtful words that traumatize us.

    Is public sympathy really more important to you than your own children? Your words have the power to destroy your children, papa.

  35. For sure marami ang magcocomment ng mga tatay mo pa rin yan blah blah blah. Nasasabi lang nila yan dahil maayos ang relasyon nila sa tatay or nanay nila.. Hindi nyo alam ang pinagdadaanan ng mga anak na may irresponsible fathers.. Totoong need magpatawad pero wag nyo iimpose dahil hindi pare pareho ang tao.. Yun lang.. Diko alam bakit ako napacomment eh ang saya saya namin ng tatay ko. 😂😂😂

  37. Simple lang naman yan. Greet nyo na lang, period. Kahit hindi sa social media, padalhan nyo ng gift basket at card. End of story. Iba kultura sa Pinas. Kapag magulang involved, masama ang tingin sa mga anak no excuse. Saklap pero katotohanan.

  38. Hindi rin ako nag-greet sa tatay ko noong Father’s Day or kahit birthday nya or Christmas. May mga taong magja-judge at sasabihin na “Wala kang utang na loob. Tatay mo pa rin yun.” Madaling sabihin yun para sa taong lumaki na normal ang pamilya at may mabuting ama. Pero ibabalik ko ang tanong, “kasama ka ba namin sa bahay namin noong nang-aabuso sya? At kahit ngayon na matanda na sya ay hindi naman sya nagbago? Kasama ka ba namin ng kapatid at nanay ko na paulit-ulit nyang sinasaktan?” You will never understand the pain of having an abusive father. Wala kayo sa household nila. Wag tayo manghusga.

  39. Ayan na nga Dennis! You pushed them too hard now. Antagal nanahimik ng mga anak mo not once do we hear them say anything bad about you. Ang lala mong tatay jusko ka!

  40. I grew up with abusive parents. My father especially- physically, verbally, and emotionally. He is deadbeat, my mom was the primary provider on top of being the housekeeper. He used to beat me as a kid and honestly, that’s all I’ll ever remember of him. He knows he lost me as a daughter. I never speak a word to him Kahit magkatabi Lang kami ng bahay. No kid is obliged to show respect or love to any one, Kahit magulang mu pa yan, if the latter never did.

  42. You expressed yourself well, Leon. Good you finally spoke up. Ang titindi ng inaabot ng mga kapatid mo on social media dahil sa papa nyo. Thank you for defending them. And to Dennis--you cannot demand your kids' love if they don't see a reason to give you love.

  43. I dont like Julia but this from the bunso I admire. He has nothing to gain from this kase. this is how he feels and valid.

    1. Julia is not perfect, kung tutuusin yong naging action niya is may psychological explanation yan. She needs to be strong at a young age because iniwan sila nangtatay niya, kaya nga din mas prefer niya older guys kesa ka age niya because let's admit it may "daddy issues siya"( i know hindi daddy ang datingan ni Gerald). And it's not right to dislike someone you don't know personally, baka you don't like her because she has something na lowkey kina iinggitan mo.

  45. I can feel the pain he's going through while reading his letter . I feel sorry for his children, i wish for everyone's healing and peace

  46. Nakakatawa yung mga nagcacall out kay Leon na dapat daw nag pm na lang o kaya kinausap ng personal eh si Dennis naman nagsimula na pagmukhain na masama yung mga anak niya sa socmed.

    Dapat yung amang si Dennis ang unahin niyong pagsabihan na ayusin yan sa personal.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I dont know how fo make sense of this letter coz we don’t really know what’s happening behind socmed kung talaga bamg may “trying to rebuild” na nagaganap or naganap. Ang nakikita ko lang dito ay batuhan ng putik at sumbatan between children (with their mother) and their father and a desperate plead to a father to just leave them alone. Sad. Walang humility, walang forgiveness, walang sincere act of really trying to reach out and making amends on BOTH parties. Who cares about socmed?! Who cares about what everyone says?! These strangers including myself dont mean anything to you! At the end of the day, family is still family and it’s still what truly matters. But knowing the Barrettos, matira matibay sa kanila at pataasan ng pride kaya walang solusyon ito.

  52. Sa behavior ni Dennis, lalo lang nawawalan ng amor sakanya ang mga anak niya. Proud of Leon for speaking up.

  53. Why can’t some people accept there are toxic fathers? If you choose to reconcile with your father kahit na continuously pinagsasalitaan kayo ng masama or sinasaktan kayo before then you are free to do so. Why do you feel like you get to decide the same for leon and marjorie and his kids? Di kayo same ng experience.

  56. 342...i agree...we we raised in a violent and traumatic set-up with our dad and it took us years to mend and be quiet for us to heal all wounds...we can't force people to acknowledge someone who wasn't there all along. It's easy to be called a father but it's difficult to be one in it's true essence. sometimes it's easier to respect someone but too difficult to love them.

  57. Yung iba dito parang di naunawaan yung letter. It's so obvious in the letter that their father has a bad temper, someone you can't reason with. Wag na tayo makialam kung bakit public pinost at tayo at nakiki usyoso lang din. May hangganan din ang pasensya ng isang tao and he has the right to speak up to protect the female members of his family as he is as he said the man of the house na

  58. Nakakasuya mga ibang comment dito na against sa pagsstand up ni Leon. Kayo siguro yung mga klase ng tao na “tatay niyo parin yan” lol. Hindi lahat ng lalake na may anak ay “tatay”
    My dad abandoned us, I saw my mom how difficult it was for her to raise us growing up and my dad was just living his life with his mistress without any support to us. Now because we have good lives, he’s starting to be involved with us but always about money. Does he deserve to be greeted on Father’s Day?? Hell no. Because he wasn’t a father to us! And I’m sure these Barretto siblings have suffered enough for them to feel this way. For all of you who says “Father’s Day greeting lang naman hindi pa mabigay” why would they credit someone as a father if he wasn’t a father to them????


    Now I’m sure they are happy without their dad in their lives, why would they let Dennis mess up their lives again in any way? Of course they have to stand up for themselves! They are not kids anymore!

    1. Toxic filipino mentality right there, na kahit mali na yung magulang bawal pa ring sumagot ang anak. And btw, Leon wrote the letter in a respectful manner if you even cared to read it.

    2. Mas lalong hindi dapat pinapahiya ng tatay ang anak in public! Mahiya kayong mga demanding na deadbeat dads!

    3. In my opinion , if the situation is abusive and affects the children already then an honest and civilized statement (like what Leon did) merits this whole chaotic drama.

  68. I always told my son to love,forgive and care his father. Kaso ang mahirap pag Yung father mismo ung nag paramdam sa anak niya na Wala siyang pakialam at care sa bata. Naiiba talaga ung tingin nang anak sa tatay nila. Hindi na brainwash Ang mga anak nang nanay sadyang walang effort Ang tatay. Ang hirap din maging nanay na tatay ka pa nang anak mo.

  69. Sus wala lng mapapala sa tatay kaya ganyan. Tagal na nagcomment sa ig nyo, di nyo lng pinapansin
