Jinkee Pacquiao, the wife of boxer-turned-politician Manny Pacquiao, debunked rumors that she is pregnant and that they have already separated.
"Hindi ako buntis. Hindi kami magkahiwalay. We are very much in love with each other," Jinkee is paraphrased as saying by veteran host Boy Abunda in the Feb. 1 episode of his program Fast Talk with Boy Abunda.
Boy said the Pacquiaos are already looking into the party behind the rumors.
According to an entertainment news site, it all started with a certain YouTube channel making malicious claims about Manny and Jinkee's marriage. The video's comments section is also disabled.
Veteran actress and talent manager Annabelle Rama, who is friends with the couple, didn't mince words in condemning those behind the made-up story, which also includes Jinkee supposedly filing for annulment.
"SA LAHAT NG MARITES, TIGILAN NYO NA ANG PAG IMBENTO NG KWENTO TUNGKOL KAY JINKY," Annabelle said in an Instagram post Jan. 30. "NO IT's A FAKE NEWS."
She said it's impossible for Jinkee and Manny to break up, noting she's witness to their sweetness as a happy family.
Annabelle also mentioned that Jinkee is busy with the construction of their three-hectare mansion, which is already nearing completion. Jinkee showed a glimpse of their new property in an Instagram post Jan. 29.
"KAYA YUNG MGA MARITES, TIGILAN NYO NA," the talent manager said. "ALAM KO KUNG SINO ANG GUMAGAWA NG CHISMIS MAMATAY KA SA INGGIT."
In light of these claims, Manny and Jinkee have been posting photos of them together over the past few days, while also writing captions expressing their undying love for each other.

"Home is wherever i'm with you. By your side is where i want to be. I Love You, babe!" Jinkee wrote in the caption of her Instagram post Feb. 1.
In another Instagram post Jan. 29, she told her husband: "Every day I Love You more!"
For Manny's part, he's been posting about Jinkee and their kids on Facebook since New Year's Eve. In his Feb. 1 post, he shared a selfie of them together while on a coffee date.
Last Jan. 27, Manny also posted photos of him and Jinky during a wedding ceremony.
"Your Ninong and Ninang. Sino next?" he said.
Manny and Jinkee got married in 1999. They have five children, namely Jimuel, Michael, Princess, Queenie, and Israel.
