Glee Tragedy: Charice Pempengco’s Father Murdered in the Philippines
Much-missed Glee darling Charice Pempengco (Sunshine) suffered a terrible tragedy yesterday. Her father, Ricky Pempengco, was stabbed to death in the Philippines.
The crime was apparently random. According to E! Online, Ricky was attacked by an allegedly drunk man at a grocery store after accidentally bumping into him.
Charice understandably pulled out of the David Foster and Friends concert she was supposed to appear in this week, choosing instead to return home to be with her family, as she announced via Twitter. Although she and her father were estranged, she tweeted that "I loved him and I will still love him. He's still my Dad after all."
Our thoughts are with Charice and her family in this difficult time.
