Marital problems had been spewing long enough for Commission on Elections (COMELEC) Chairperson Andres Bautista to claim that his wife’s publicity stint with his alleged ill-gotten wealth of over Php 1 billion is nothing more than an act of “pangingikil at panggigipit”. 

As for the wife, Patricia Bautista, she only seeks to have half of what is “clean” in Andres’ banks.

"Let me make it clear: By law, I'm entitled to half of what Andy owns. But I want half only of what is clean. This is why I'm bringing it to the government to tell me which part is clean," Patricia said.

Whether it goes bu the billions or millions, Patricia reiterates that she only seeks to have what is rightfully hers without getting muddied in the controversy.

"I want half of what is clean. If you tell me that P1 billion is clean, P500 million is clean, P300 million, I will get one half of what is clean. I would not do all of these and then get into the muck as well with all of these. I want a clean break," she said.

Andres had earlier claimed that his wife was after Php 620 million settlement from him and his refusal or incapability to pay for this was met with a threat from Patricia that she would report him to President Rodrigo Duterte.

However, Patricia clarified that she only sought for Php 260 million with most of it to be placed in a trust fund for their children.

"No... again we had a mediator, we had a term sheet and the total including again was 85 percent [or] 75 percent of it was a trust for my kids, not for me, for my kids and I really wanted it that way," she said.

Patricia issued these statements after reporting her husband’s anomalous Php 1 billion wealth spread over 32 passbooks and bank and property documents to Duterte five days before she filed an affidavit at the National Bureau for Investigation (NBI).

"So again, I was very willing already I said you know it's impossible for me at this point to take your word for, this is yours, this is not mine, this is my brother's... So I said okay, this amount as long as there's a trust for my kids, I'm good with," she said.
