- Gerald Anderson was being compared to Jose Rizal for having many girlfriends
- Anderson allegedly admitted that he is now courting Julia Barretto
- Netizens condemned him for being a “playboy”
Having several girlfriends in the past, Gerald Anderson is now being likened to Jose Rizal. Some even claimed that he is the modern-aged Jose Rizal.
In history, our national hero was known for having affairs with different women. The nine women who were romantically linked to Rizal were Segunda Katigbak, Leonor Valenzuela, Leonor Rivera, Consuelo Ortiga, O-Sei San, Gertrude Beckette, Nelly Boustead, Suzanne Jacoby, and Josephine Bracken. Rizal’s love stories took place in the different countries he visited. It was said that Rivera was his greatest love but after leaving the Philippines he began his courtship with his beautiful housemate, Ortiga, in Madrid.
Anderson has dated a series of women in his life but he failed to maintain these relationships. He was first reported to be linked with then Pinoy Big Brother and StarStruck hopeful Farina Runkle after their old photo surfaced on the internet in 2006. He was able to establish good chemistry with fellow PBB housemate Kim Chiu but they broke up after years of dating.
He was also linked to Chiu’s best friend Maja Salvador and singer Sarah Geronimo but their romance did not last long.
Anderson and Bea Alonzo formed a romantic relationship but broke up in 2011. They rekindled the romance in 2017 but rumors of a dalliance with beauty queen and actress Pia Wurtzbach put a strain on the relationship. Bea and Gerald were able to weather this storm in their relationship and were about to celebrate their third year as a couple when trouble struck again.
Last July 21, Alonzo began posting cryptic words on Instagram supposedly talking about her failing relationship with Anderson. The actor is now linked to Julia Barretto after their viral photo circulated on the internet. He allegedly admitted to Dennis Padilla that he is now courting Padilla’s daughter Julia after he ended his relationship with Alonzo.
Alonzo clarified in an interview that she and Anderson did not formally break up and that he simply stopped talking to her.
The controversy became a top trending topic on Twitter and many netizens are throwing criticisms at the actor. They also condemned him for being a “playboy.”
The Ultimate playboy of the century,
Wala nang makakatalo kay Gerald Anderson sa pagiging PAKBOY sa lahat..
From Kim to Maja then na link pa kay Sarah hanggang umabot kay Bea Alonzo, wow then now si Julia Barreto.
