Claudine Barretto posts then deletes Instagram photo with bruised, bloated face; followers intrigued

Claudine Barretto raised many eyebrows in social media on Friday when she posted an intriguing photo on Instagram showing her with a bruised and bloated face.

And then she deleted it a few hours later, shortly after this story was posted.

The photo (above) appears innocent enough at first glance. Taken during the recent party for Claudine’s daughter Sabina, it shows Claudine posing with Sabina and two other girls.

Despite Claudine’s smile, however, part of her right cheek is conspicuously bruised and bloated. Her followers noticed immediately.

“OMG what happened to your right cheek? may bruise! OMG :( ,” said fan and handlesake “claudinebarretto”.

honeybella18 chimed in with concern: “i hope you didnt get  beat up…”

paopaojoliepitt speculated: “Wahh abuse ata. Bat me sapak.”

The actress, whose marriage to actor Raymart Santiago is reportedly on the rocks, did not respond to the comments.
