What seemed to be Andrea Brillantes’ expression of admiration for Fil-Am singer-songwriter Olivia Rodrigo soon became a venue for “Kathniel” fans to bash the  who appeared to blame the actress for the breakup of Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla.

Brillantes was suspected to be the third party behind the split of the “KathNiel” love team after showbiz writer Ogie Diaz linked the “Senior High” star to the singer-actor on his “Ogie Diaz Showbiz Update” vlog last Nov. 8.


Diaz then stressed in a follow-up vlog that he did not start the rumors and merely cited the talk swirling in show biz circles, while hoping that it’s not true.


The actress, however, made headlines after Bernardo unfollowed her on Instagram earlier this month — and vice versa.

On her X (formerly Twitter) account on Nov. 30 at around 4:20 p.m., Brillantes expressed her love for Rodrigo while sharing a screenshot of her top songs on Spotify Wrapped which is an annual yearend roundup of the music platform.

The screenshot contained Rodrigo’s songs, “bad idea right?”, “all-american b**ch,” “lacy,” “vampire,” and “get him back,” which are part of her 2023 album “Guts.”

“When I said that I love Olivia and her newest album, this is what I meant. (I didn’t expect or plan this btw haha),” Brillantes wrote.

Brillantes’ post, however, became the fodder for criticism as many netizens pinned their blame on the actress for being the reason for Bernardo and Padilla’s breakup.


Others pointed out that Brillantes should be “left alone” as Bernardo and Padilla’s split is a matter that should be kept among themselves, with some pointing that the bashers’ remarks “reek of misogyny.”

Contrary to the accusations, Bernardo and Padilla have not mentioned any third party in their separation, only that they have “drifted apart”.
