Bella Racelis still mum on ‘ship with Joshua Garcia, but says her heart is ‘happy’
Content creator Bella Racelis still won’t open up about her supposed relationship with actor Joshua Garcia, but said that the status of her heart is “happy.”
During a conversation with actor Luis Manzano, which aired on his YouTube channel on Tuesday, Dec. 20, the vlogger remained mum about dating speculations linking her to the “Darna” star.
The topic was brought up after Manzano asked Racelis if she and “Josh” are in a relationship. The TV host, with his trademark humor, then immediately clarified that he was referring to Josh of P-Pop boy group SB19, blocking viewers’ supposed assumption that he was pertaining to Garcia.
“Pero kumusta naman? Kasi of course, hindi naman tayo magma-maangmaangan — you watch the news, you go on social media — napag-uusapan din kayo,” Manzano asked, apparently referencing the dating speculations hounding Racelis and Garcia.
(But how are you? Because of course, let’s not deny it — you watch the news, you go on social media — [people] are talking about you.)
“In general, how is your heart right now?” he added.
“My heart right now is happy because I’m being surrounded with people who radiate good vibes and people who really add value to my life,” Racelis responded.
The vlogger then talked about how she juggles the “matters of the heart” along with her studies and career, but noted that her academic goals have always been her top priority.
During the vlog, Racelis also reflected on the consequences of being a public figure which include the bashing she gets from people who “always look for something negative to say” about her.
“I’m proud of myself for being unbothered ever since — parang never talaga akong sobrang naapektuhan (I feel like I don’t really get extremely affected),” she stated. “Tao din naman ako (I’m also human). I get affected sometimes, but most of the time I don’t get affected because I like to choose my battles… I don’t want to waste my energy on something negative, and people who don’t really add value to my life.”
Speculations linking Garcia and Racelis have been making rounds online since August, when they interacted through comments on the vlogger’s Instagram post. The two of them were also spotted seemingly holding hands while walking in public in October.
In November, Garcia then opened up on the status of his love life and revealed that he is single. However, the actor fueled romance speculations anew after he left a comment on Racelis Instagram post, also in the same month. EDV
