MANILA – Jinkee Pacquiao has taken on a new role as the endorser of a beauty clinic, a move that reportedly "knocked out" her husband Manny.

Jinkee said her role as the Belo Medical Clinic's new endorser came as a surprise to the star boxer because she initially kept the news to herself. Manny was later glued in when he started noticing Jinkee's new looks.

“Hindi ko ‘to pinaalam sa kaniya, desisyon ko talaga ito,” she told ABS-CBN News during a Belo endorsement launch. “Gandang-ganda siya (Manny) sa akin. Lagi na lang niya akong tinatanong kung saan ako pupunta."

Appearing cool and collected, Jinkee also answered questions regarding her husband's alleged extra-marital relations. She said she doesn't get as jealous about Manny's admirers as before, and even laughed off rumors that her husband gifted a woman with a car.

"Ha? Ako ang may bagong kotse. Hindi ko masisisi ang iba diyan na lumalapit kay Manny kasi pambihira talaga siya sa maraming bagay... I trust him," she said.

Meanwhile, Jinkee said she and her mother-in-law Dionisia Pacquiao are  currently focusing on their respective showbiz careers. "Aling Dionisia", as Pacquiao's ma is lovingly called, has appeared in several commercials and TV shows.

“Nakakatuwa siya. At sa edad niya ha, nagkaroon siya ng bagong buhay! Wala akong masabi!” Jinkee exclaimed. 

"Aling Dionisia" is set to appear in a movie starring Ai-Ai delas Alas and former President Joseph "Erap" Estrada. With reports from Mario Dumaual, ABS-CBN News. Photo copyrighted by the Belo Medical Group.
