ABS-CBN News reported that Manny Pacquiao’s mother “Mommy Dionisia” wanted a P1 million Hermès bag from her son for her birthday (the bag goes for $1000, 42,930 peso’s). Looks like Paris Hilton has already had an influence on her new BFF in training.
In addition to the bag, Mommy D wants her son to retire from the ring adding, “Your retirement will be your greatest gift to me this Mother’s Day and on my birthday” Nothing like a Mother’s guilt.
No wonder Pac-Man looked so anxious to knock out Shane Mosley in Saturday night’s bout. He needed to run to the bank REAL quick. Hurry up Pac, Mommy D turns 62 this upcoming Sunday.
That being said, this should not be a big deal for Manny, as he is now one of Forbes wealthiest athletes and one of ESPN’s Best Paid Athletes of 2010. Manny’s got one proud mama, and she’s not shy to tell the world. “Manny will spend for my party and we’ve got the money for it,” she has stated. It has been reported that there will be custom made gowns for Mommy D, to make her look like a princess. I don’t know about you folks, but I thought the royal wedding ended a week ago?
