‘Wala akong inahas’ – Julia Barretto
MANILA, Philippines — Actress Julia Barretto denied being involved in former couple Bea Alonzo and Gerald Anderson’s breakup, clarifying the latter was never and is not her boyfriend.
“Hindi ko siya naging boyfriend and hindi ko siya boyfriend ngayon. Therefore, wala akong inagawan ng boyfriend, wala akong inahas at saka wala din akong nilandi,” Barretto said, as seen in a video posted Thursday by ABS-CBN News Online.
Barretto also put an end to speculations that Anderson courted her, but said the actor remains to be a good friend of hers.
“Hindi ako nililigawan. Naniniwala ako na may tamang panahon at oras para sa mga bagay na ganyan. Nananatili siyang matalik kong kaibigan ngayon,” Barretto said.
The actress said she is already in the process of healing and stressed now is not the time for the blame game since everyone involved in the issue is hurting.
“We’re all dealing with our own pain and ang pinakamasakit pa don is nadamay yung mga pamilya namin. Pero I’m really in the process of moving forward, healing,” Barretto said.”
She continued, “And hindi ito yung tamang panahon para magsisihan. This is not the right time anymore to point fingers. She’s hurting, he’s hurting, but so am I. I’m really in so much pain right now.”
Nonetheless, Barretto said there is no other choice but to bounce back and heal from what happened.
“But kailangan magpakatatag e. We have to get back on our feet, and move forward, and heal from this. Wala kaming choice. We just have to respect each other’s pain. Everyone is hurting. Hindi madali ‘yung pinagdadaanan naming tatlo,” Barretto said.
The three actors made headlines the past month after Alonzo hinted at betrayal in a cryptic post then revealed there was no formal breakup between her and Anderson.
Anderson, on the other hand, said his relationship with Alonzo became unhealthy after they had fights after fights. He also clarified no third party was involved in their split.
