Julia Barretto is in the hot seat since last night, July 21, after Bea Alonzo shared a cryptic post about repeating an act is a choice and not a mistake.
“”You can’t make the same mistake twice, the second time you make it, it’s not a mistake anymore, it’s a choice.’ ENOUGH,” Alonzo wrote in the caption.
Though Alonzo did not name or tag anyone on her post on Instagram, “Julia” along with “Gerald” immediately became a trending topic on Twitter as netizens unearthed sweet photos of Gerald Anderson and Julia Barretto during the promo of Between Maybes and shared their comments on the alleged cheating.
A certain Kath Cabrera shared photos of Anderson and Barretto on Instagram, which was liked by Alonzo. The photos show Anderson and Barretto together at Rayver Cruz’s 30th birthday celebration at a bar in BGC.
And now Marjorie Barretto has spoken to defend their daughter Julia. Fashion Pulis was able to secure a screenshot of the said statement.
She tagged the uploader and said, “Please explain too that this was taken at the party of Rayver. That you zoomed in this photo. If you care to zoom out, you will see that they were a big group that includes my nephew. I don’t see anything wrong with this photo. They don’t seem to be hiding.”
The mother also reiterated that Anderson and her daughter are just friends. “There are people around, and if I’m not mistaken, Julia was waving at someone. This is not a date. They know each other, they have worked together, they are friends.”
Bea Alonzo played Julia Barretto’s stepmother in the 2017 teleserye A Love To Last.
