Katharine said the proposal happened at the top of a mountain in Anacapri, “totally dark and only stars can be seen.” She even joked she is thankful David did not push her off the cliff.

Katharine, 34, and David, 68, are in the May-December love affair club, for which bashers told the actress to marry someone else. David has also been married four times and has four daughters and seven grandchildren.

But on her Twitter account, Katharine slammed bashers.

“y’all should be worrying more about registering to vote and midterm elections than who’s marrying me. thank you for coming to my TED talk,” the singer tweeted.

Apart from his greatest hits, David is known in the Philippines for his love for the country because of Filipinos’ passion for music.

David and Charice Pempenco, now Jake Zyrus, performed in many stages. David also produced some of the tracks in her past albums.
