Manny Pacquiao’s mom may safely be called a cougar now.
Pac-Man said in a TV interview last week that his mother, Dionisia, is now living with her 40-year-old boyfriend. Dionisia, who is known affectionately as Mommy D, is 65.
Pacquiao even said his mom plans to marry her boyfriend. This essentially would be her third marriage. She has two children from a first marriage, and she has four children — including Manny — with Rosalio Pacquiao, her partner of 20 years.
Manny objects to her mother getting married a second time while her first husband is still alive and they have not legally divorced.
Dionisia confirmed she has a boyfriend but says they are not living together.
Mommy D gained some fame on the internet back in April during Manny’s fight with Timothy Bradley. She was seen praying during the fight, but it looked like she was placing a hex on Bradley.
If there’s anyone Manny should be able to commiserate with over this issue, it’s LeBron James. LeBron’s mom, Gloria, is 15 years older than her boyfriend, a rapper named Lambo. Perhaps their mutual friends at Nike could put them in touch so they can share secrets on coping skills.
