SC Justice to Bea, Julia: ‘Is he really worth it?’
MANILA, Philippines —“Is he really worth it?”
When a Supreme Court justice weighs in on an issue, take a pause and listen: it is an issue of national concern.
It looks like the spat between Bea Alonzo and Julia Barretto over Gerald Anderson has spun out of control.
On Wednesday, Associate Justice Marvic Leonen tweeted: “Dear Bea and Julia, is he really worth it?”
Dear Bea and Julia,

Personalities, netizens weigh in on Julia Barretto, Bea Alonzo spat
Aside from the High Court justice, other personalities and netizens reacted on the latest issue that got the two Kapamilya stars the top trending topic on social media Tuesday night.
Comedian and talent manager Ogie Diaz shared his two cents on the issue via a Facebook post, saying: “Pahupa na, eh. Sana, di na lang nagsalita si Julia Barretto.”
Pahupa na, eh. Sana, di na lang nagsalita si Julia Barretto. Kahapon nagsalita si Ge, si JB ngayon. Nag-usap kaya sila?
He also raised the possibility of a conspiracy, saying: “Kahapon nagsalita si [Gerald], si JB ngayon. Nag-usap kaya sila?” referring to Anderson’s interview on Monday, where he cleared that there was no third party involved in his breakup with Alonzo.
Ethel Booba also chimed in the conversation, and even suggested “Victims of Love” as the perfect song for both actresses in their current situation:
Now playing: Victims of Love. Charot!

The comedienne even edited herself and her “friend”—a snake— while reading tweets with the Salazar sisters from the “Four Sister and a Wedding” film, played by Alonzo, Angel Locsin, Shaina Magdayao and Toni Gonzaga.
