Manny Pacquiao and Jinkee Pacquiao's Divorce Settlement Revealed by Freddie Roach
But that was before Manny Pacquiao's fight with Juan Manuel Marquez in November of last year.
In a news posted at ABS-CBN News website, Pacquiao's boxing coach Freddie Roach revealed on this interview with LA Times that the Pinoy world boxing champ was served with divorce papers on the eve of his fight with the Mexican boxer in November 12, 2011 which was why Pacquiao struggled against Marquez on their bout.
Pacquiao’s marriage with his wife Jinkee was then surrounded with a lot of controversies - from womanizing, alcohol and gambling.
Jinkee even publicly announced that she will not support his husband's fight with Marquez but changed her mind on the last minute.
After Pacquiao pulled off a unanimous decision against Marquez, he desperately worked hard to save his marriage - from giving up all his vices to closing some of his business ventures like his cockfighting farm, sold his casino and his nightclub, and his lifestyle which involved "girls and everything that goes with it."
"Now, he's back with his wife, reading the Bible every day, and he's given up basketball," Roach said.
