First Lady Liza Marcos posted a photo on Instagram with her mother-in-law, Imelda Marcos, on Sunday, days after rumors that the former First Lady had died circulated online.
Also in the photo is Tingog Party-list Rep. Yedda Romualdez, the wife of House Speaker Martin Romualdez, the cousin of President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. and a nephew of Imelda Marcos.
The 93-year-old Imelda, who was also a representative for Ilocos Norteuntil 2019, was last seen in public in May, weeks after her son won the presidency in a landslide.
“Still strong and kicking!” was how a niece of Imelda Marcos doused rumors that the matriarch has passed away on Thursday.
Eliza Romualdez-Valtos posted an old photo of Marcos on Twitter and used the hashtag #notofakenews.
Marcos’ daughter, Sen. Imee Marcos, also said rumors on her mom’s alleged demise have been swirling for a week now.
“Last week pa yan, ang bad ng nagkakalat (the one spreading it is bad),” the senator said.
Mrs. Marcos was trending on Twitter last week, owing to the rumors of her death.
