Posted at 11/25/09 12:20 PM

MANILA - Jinkee Pacquiao, wife of WBO welterweight champion Manny “Pacman” "Pacquiao," is in a fighting mood.

Amid rumors romantically linking Manny to sexy star Krista Ranillo, Jinkee gave a scathing message to the young actress in her interview with another network.

In the interview, it seemed that the wife has indirectly confirmed the alleged illicit affair.

Jinkee called on Ranillo to find a single guy for her. The wife pointed out that Ranillo is still young and has a great future ahead of her.

She also reminded Ranillo that Manny is a happily married man with four children.

She said: "So, isipin niya kung magiging masaya ba siya kung makiki-join siya sa isang tao na may family? Magiging masaya ba siya na makasira siya ng pamilya? Madami pa siyang makikilalang iba na single, hindi ba? Bakit kailangan pang sa may asawa?”

"Si Manny may mga anak, masaya ang family namin. Mahirap 'yong nasisira ang family namin. Dapat tulungan na lang na maging buo ang family at maging masaya sila sa amin," Jinkee added.

Jinkee admitted that she is hurt by all the intrigues.

More so, she said, she is upset that people are now talking about her family. She said their personal affairs should be kept private for the sake of her children.

She vowed to fight and remain strong to keep her family intact. She said she and Manny have been together for 10 years and she would not give that up just because of these rumors.

She added that she may not be a perfect wife and perfect mother, but she would do everything for her family. She also told Manny that she will always be by his side “no matter what.”

Jinkee, Manny and their children are now in General Santos City. Ranillo, on the other hand, is set to be back in Manila any day this week to fulfill her commitments here.

Ranillo, one of the lead stars of ABS-CBN's "Tonyong Bayawak," is reportedly scheduled to do sexy pictorials for a calendar of a liquor brand and various magazines.
