Divine Lee’s not-so-divine predicament


When news of the proposed P1-million bounty for Globe Asiatique Realty Holdings Corp. owner Delfin Lee hit headlines, heads turned to his very visible socialite daughter Divine. Some people even say she should be included in the charge sheet of people involved in the Pag-Ibig fraud.

According to an Inquirer report, one of the 200 unit owners of Globe Asiatique Tower 2 on Edsa said: “This is hard-earned money and lifetime savings of my daughter they are playing with. While we worked hard to meet payments, Delfin’s daughter, Divine, goes around town and flaunts her signature bags in the social network.”

Although Divine has kept mum about the issue, some netizens took to Twitter to express their disdain for her extravagant lifestyle amid the controversy.

One posted, “While the renters worked hard to meet payments, @DivineMLee goes around the world FLASHING & FLAUNTING those signature bags! #Nightmare”

Another wrote: “Grabe panay travel ni @DivinemLee feeling ko pera ng tao galing sa tatay nia ginagamit nia! Maawa naman sana cla sa tao!”

One netizen posted a question that is on people’s minds: “P1M reward for Delfin Lee re: Globe Asiatique scam. So, did @DivinemLee know about it kaya? #TheSinsOfTheFather #CrisisNiMotherBecky”

But Divine, who has amassed fans from her TV appearances and her social network, also has defenders. One wrote, “This is just sad. I hope @DivinemLee gets through this very trying times…” And another said, “@DivinemLee worked very hard for everything that she has right now. Nobody has the right to take anything away from her.”

In the next two weeks, it should be interesting how this high-profile stylista will deal with the flak resulting from the charges against her father and brothers.

But however she deals with it, a social wag has a rather interesting conclusion—“Whatever you say, her PRs definitely have done a perfect job building up her image through the years.”

    Must we wonder if she’s in cahoots or at least a beneficiary of her dad’s ill gotten wealth? I mean, come on– lest we forget, GMA was nagbubulagbulagan sa mga kalokohan na ginagawa ng First Gentleman. Duh~

    You are all peasants to Divine and before her.. Celine Lopez.
    You just don’t get it.
    These people just do not have any morals or concept of money.
    She doesn’t care what anyone thinks.
    She is SO RICH!
    One million pesos is a joke.
