Netizens weigh in after Francis Magalona’s alleged daughter surfaced

by Deanna Macaranas

NETIZENS made various reactions after a woman named Abigail Rait claimed in the YouTube show ‘’Pinoy Pawnstars’’ that she has a daughter with the late rapper Francis Magalona.

The video showed Rait selling Magalona’s old jersey. She claimed that she remained quiet about her and her daughter, Gaile Francesca. 

The 15-year-old stated that she didn’t want to sell the jersey at first.

“Nung una po, ayaw ko po pero na-realize ko rin po na kung nasa bahay lang po siya or nakatago lang po siya sa closet, I felt na mas better po siya if prineserve since may story din po ‘yung jersey na po na ‘yun,” she said. 

Gaile Francesca was only 6 months old when Magalona died of leukemia in 2009. 

As the video went viral, netizens were quick to post their reactions regarding the revelation.  

An X user stated how she felt weird watching the video revealing Magalona’s extramarital affair.

Gaile Francesca said in an interview on 24 Oras Weekend last Saturday that she was not affected by the comments about her. 

“I don’t mind the comments po kasi I know the story, and so no comment na lang po ako roon. Basta I know the story, that’s why I’m not affected at all. And also my family.” 

She then reiterated that, “All I know is that I am my father’s daughter.”
