Saab Magalona Bashed for Not Attending Sister’s Wedding?

  • January 11, 2018

Today, January 11, Maxene Magalona and musician Rob Mananquil tied the knot in an intimate beach wedding ceremony in Shangri-La’s Boracay Resort and Spa. Color white played a major part in Maxene and Rob’s romantic union. The lovely couple and the rest of the guest were wearing classic and elegant all-white ensembles as they celebrate the wondrous love and union of the newlyweds.

Among the celebrity guests who attended the #iRobYouVeryMaxx wedding were Gary Valenciano with his wife Angeli Pangilinan, Megan and Lauren Young, Julia Montes, Mikael Daez, and Janella Salvador. Maxene and Rob’s families and friends were all present, except for Maxene’s sister Saab Magalona.

Saab wasn’t able to attend the wedding due to pregnancy restrictions. She said on her Instagram that it’s not safe for her to travel according to her doctor.

“Today my maid-of-honor gets married and, as her matron-of-honor, I’m so sad that I can’t be with her physically. I recently learned that I’m not allowed to travel anymore until after the twins’ birth 💔 I really wish I could be there, but with her big and selfless heart, she told me not to worry about it because the safety of my babies is what’s most important. I love you, @maxenemagalona, and I am currently crying buckets from Manila 😭 (I’m also wearing my matron-of-honor dress in bed like a crazy woman. It’s the hormones.) #MagalonaMananquil

In the comment section, a basher with an Instagram handle @welovesistardasom called out Saab for missing out her sister’s wedding and sarcastically said that it’s a no-brainer for pregnant women not to travel. The basher even imposed that Maxene and Rob should’ve considered her pregnancy and should’ve just held the wedding ceremony in Manila for Saab’s convenience.

“Obvious naman na hindi pwede mag-travel ang buntis. At tsaka bakit kasi sa Paris pa sa dinami daming lugar? So sino pumalit sa ‘yo? ‘Di ba pwedeng sa Manila na lang sya ikasal? Or after giving birth. Gulo na si-stress ako.”

Saab, who obviously got annoyed with the unsolicited concern-troll attack, answered the basher.

“I just came from HK this year so anong sinasabi mong bawal magtravel ang buntis? Dami mong alam, sis, I had NO idea na sa Paris pala ang kasal?!? Since when? Also, they’ve been planning this wedding before we found out I was pregnant, not everybody can just cancel and move stuff around on a whim. I’ not the bride, why would they move their entire ceremony for me? #MEMA.”
