Gerald admits being with Julia, reveals breakup with Bea through ‘too many conversations’
After months of controversy and speculations, Gerald Anderson has finally confirmed that he is in a relationship with Julia Barretto.
After being asked by Boy Abunda in a tell-all interview if he was “happy because of Julia,” Anderson replied: “Very happy. Very happy, Tito Boy. It’s a yes.”
Aside from having a romantic relationship with his “Between Maybes” co-star, Anderson also shared his side on “ghosting” former lover Bea Alonzo in the interview uploaded to Abunda’s YouTube channel yesterday, March 5.
“Ano po ba ang definition ng ghosting? Kasi ang dating sa akin is parang nasa gitna kami ng dinner tapos nag-decide ako mag-back out and ‘di magpapakita kahit kailan. ‘Yun ba ang definition? Or is it walking away from a very unhealthy, toxic—not saying na siya ‘yung toxic, but being together, we were very toxic,” Anderson stressed.
(What is the definition of ghosting? Because for me, it is like we are in the middle of a dinner and then I suddenly decide to back out and never return. Is that the definition? Or is it walking away from a very unhealthy, toxic—not saying that she is toxic, but being together, we were very toxic.)
“Hindi narerespeto ‘yung explanation na binibigay mo, hindi tinatanggap. After months and months and months and months of being on the rocks and [puro] away… I mean, ‘yun lang. I’m just gonna leave it at that. Bahala na po kung paanong ano, but if ‘yun ‘yung ghosting, I’m guilty of one of those two,” he added.
(The explanations you give are being rejected and not respected. After months and months and months and months of being on the rocks and constant fighting… I mean, that is it. I’m just gonna leave it at that. Come what may, but if that is what is meant by ghosting, I’m guilty of one of those two.)
Anderson, however, then noted that he did not ghost anyone after Abunda reiterated his question if he had ghosted Alonzo.
Abunda also asked if Anderson and Alonzo had a conversation when things ended, to which the actor replied, “Too many conversations.”
When asked if there was “a need for conversation,” Anderson simply answered “no.” He also explained that while he was hurt back then, he has “come to terms with it.”
Anderson and Alonzo’s breakup was the center of controversy back in mid-2019 after the public speculated that cheating was involved.
Barretto, who had been also accused of cheating when she was with Joshua Garcia, had stressed back in August 2019 that no third party was involved in her and Garcia’s breakup, as well as in Anderson and Alonzo’s breakup. /ra
