What is wrong with legendary Filipino folk singer Freddie Aguilar? The 60-year-old “Anak” singer is currently in the center of a scandal when he admitted to PEP that he has a 16-year-old girlfriend. He was first seen with his teen girlfriend at the 5th Star Awards for Music at Solaire Resorts and Casino where he received the 2013 Lifetime Achievement Award.
Photos of Aguilar and the unidentified girlfriend kissing (see below) surfaced online on Thursday.
Everything in here is plainly wrong. However, Aguilar thinks it is all right. He said that when he was still dating the girl he did not know that she is a minor. He only found out of her real age when he was already in love with her. WTF Freddie!
Here is the most disturbing one: The parents of the girl has approved the relationship and they even gave Aguilar the blessing to marry her. Again, WTF!
Gross. He is 60 years old and she is 44 years younger. Whether there is free will or not on the side of the girl, the fact is, she is still a minor. This is child abuse. No other way to put it. Period.
I hope proper authorities will investigate this!
