Last August 25, the hottest Kapamilya talents showed off their athletic skills at the much-anticipated celebrity sports event Star Magic All-Star Games 2019 at the Araneta Coliseum, Cubao, Quezon City.
Gerald Anderson and Daniel Padilla joined forces for the basketball game and ended up victorious in their double-overtime match against Vice Ganda’s It’s Showtime team.
Gerald served as the captain of their team.
The controversial actor was hailed as the Most Valuable Player (MVP) during the awarding ceremony. He awed the audience with his exemplary performance during their hard-fought game. He led his team in offense and defense successfully.
But what was more exciting than the game may be Julia Barretto’s reactions while watching Gerald’s game.
Julia was supposedly the cause of the breakup of the longtime couple Bea Alonzo and Gerald. Some netizens couldn’t help but notice how the actress’s reactions as she watched the game. Here are some of their comments.

Julia was the team captain for the blue volleyball team which was defeated by Kim Chiu’s red team
Julia’s mother, Marjorie Barretto, showed her support by posting a video on her Instagram account of her kissing Julia on the forehead after the volleyball game. But in the comment section, an Instagram user said, “NUMBER 3 rin si @andersongerald <3,” in reference to the number on their jerseys.
Marjorie nipped the issue in the bud but saying that Julia has worn jersey number 3 since her high school volleyball varsity days.
“Let me correct this before the story gets big and out of hand again. Number 3 has always been Julia’s jersey number since her high school volleyball varsity days. No special meaning [heart emoticon],” Marjorie replied.
In past interviews for the Imus Bandera in the Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League (MPBL), Gerald explained that he chose number 3 because of his idol, NBA Hall of Famer Allen Iverson.
Incidentally, just like Marjorie, Gerald’s mom, Vangie Opsima, went on the defense of her son as well.
