CLAIM: Vice President Leni Robredo was in a romantic relationship with a married man.
RATING: FALSE

Avid Marcos-Duterte supporter Jam Magno claimed on Twitter that Vice President Leni Robredo was in a romantic relationship with a married man.

Magno posted “facts about Len-Len,” which highlights a thread of dubious claims about the vice president – from her personal life to her works as a public servant. Magno, who had been suspended in Twitter for breaking community rules, labeled Robredo as “kumabit sa may asawa,” or someone who cheated with a married guy.  

This claim is FALSE.

Robredo has been single since the passing of her husband, former Interior Secretary Jesse Robredo in 2012. The Vice President has dismissed all similar allegations in the past and asserted that she has no plans to remarry and even enter into a new relationship at all. 

This issue has been a recurring rumor since she assumed the vice-presidency in 2016. 

Magno, like others who share these allegations against Robredo, has not produced any evidence to back up their claims.
