A viral photo has been making the rounds online claiming VP-elect Leni Robredo secretly married another guy not named Jesse before becoming Mrs. Robredo.
The photo was uploaded Thursday afternoon and has been shared on several other anti-Robredo Facebook pages after netizens picked up the story.
In fact, some blogs have written about it, hoping to ride on the trend.
In the post, the netizen alleged that the teen Leni fell in love with a guy from Cebu who was an active supporter of a leftist group during Marcos era.
When Leni’s parents learned about the relationship, they quickly thumbed down the affair, forcing love-struck Leni to elope with her sweetheart.
However, the relationship did not last long when Leni realized a bleak future awaits her if she stuck it out.
Meanwhile, Leni Robredo’s followers quickly dismissed the story as a hoax and lambasted the original uploader and calls the post “libelous!”

Please refer to the post of the OP below:
BREAKING NEWS: You’d be surprised to discover this Maria Leonor Gerona Robredo, also known as Leni Robredo was married to this unknown poor guy from Cebu City.
He was allegedly her teen age sweet heart. He was said to be an active supporter of the leftist group during Marcos time. Her parents did not approve of their relationship so she had to run away home believing that love doesn’t wait for the perfect age.
After some time, she realized she was heading towards a terrible life ahead because they were far too young to handle responsibilities of a family life she returned home. Her boy friend did not finish college and Leni doesn’t want to be left out by her friends and classmates since most of them were heading towards college that time.
She pursued college studies while secretly living together and got married. She never told her parents or anyone about this marriage although there were times that they are being caught together.
When Marcos government orders arrest and all-out war against rebels her husband was believed to be amongst those who have lost their lives during encounters.
In 1987 she re married to Former Secretary Jessie Robredo with vows to avenge his first husbands fate.
