Charice’s estranged father Ricky Pempengco was the victim of a horrible crime in her hometown of San Pedro, Philippines, yesterday. The star’s father was in a local store when he reportedly accidentally bumped into a drunk man. The man immediately attacked Charice’s dad, stabbing him in the chest and then fleeing the scene. Charice’s father passed away from his injuries.
“I am not going to be there to be part of David Foster and Friends concert, I have to go back to the Philippines as soon as possible to be with my family,” Charice wrote on Twitter. “I loved him and will still love him. He’s still my dad after all.”
