The world’s number one pound-for-pound boxer has Paris in his list of places to visit. But in a couple of months, Paris will be the one to visit him in the Philippines.
Paris Hilton, that is. After watching the Pacquiao-Mosley fight live at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas last May 8, Paris announced that she will visit the Philippines this year, and hopes to meet up with the boxing icon. She plans to establish a new business here. There are speculations that Paris will open a Paris Hilton Beach Club here, possibly with Manny as her business partner, but this has yet to be confirmed.
The socialite and hotel heiress is a Manny Pacquiao fan. She even attended the post-fight party at Mandalay Bay where she personally met the Fighter of the Decade and his wife Jinkee. The American model and actress posted in her Twitter account, “Hanging out with @MannyPacquiao and his beautiful wife Jinkee. They are such a sweet & down to earth couple! Love them! :)”
Paris posted a photo of herself and Pacquiao in a “tight” pose with a caption that says, “Love this picture of @MannyPacquiao and me. Such a nice guy! :)” This left a reporter wondering whether Jinkee was around when the photo was taken. The boxing superstar has figured in several extra-marital controversies that stormed his marriage with Jinkee. There was the woman who is said to have bore Manny a love-child. There were also actresses Ara Mina, Valerie Concepcion, and Krista Ranillo. The rumored romances were much publicized and talked about, leaving a hurt Jinkee crying during a mass and turning to celebrity friends for advice and comfort.
But Jinkee never left the Pambansang Kamao’s side.”Para din akong boksingero, ‘pag kailangan, fight,” Jinkee said in an interview. “I need to be strong for my children,” the lovely Pacquiao queen said.
Jinkee has since given more attention to her appearance, enlisting the help of popular beauty doctor Vicky Belo. Jinkee has undergoneSmart Lipo, a laser-assisted liposuction procedure from Italy; Body Tite, a body remodelling procedure from the United States; diet injections; Ulthera, a non-invasive procedure from the US that changed her square face to oval; and glutathione supplement to make her complexion fairer and glowing.
The mother of Manny’s four children said that the makeover has made her more confident. She does not consider other women a threat anymore. But the pretty American is hard to resist and the People’s Champ is easily attracted. Paris is way above the profile of Manny’s “women.” She is filthy rich, known as a “bad girl,” and is a real “big time” celebrity. The 30-year-old Paris has jumped in and out of relationships herself and has no plans of settling down just yet. She said she does not care whether her boyfriend is rich or poor. Paris’ partners include men from foreign countries as well. Can he fight temptation this time? Can he beat this lure as well as he beats his opponents in the ring?
