A screenshot of a certain hotel greeting and expressing their gratitude towards Kapamilya stars Julia Barretto and Gerald Anderson last April 13 went viral.
“What is the meaning of this? 🤭” one netizen asked while showing a collage of Segara Hotel’s posts thanking Julia and Gerald for staying with them. Though the posts were made separately, netizens noted that both were made on the same date.
This photo was also liked by Bea Alonzo.
This action of Bea further fuel netizens’ speculations that Julia stayed in the same hotel with Gerald. This made Julia’s mom Marjorie Barretto go on the defense and clarify the incident.
On Instagram, Marjorie requested, “Let’s stick to the facts. Please swipe.” She attached screenshots of a certain hotel’s Facebook page thanking Julia and Gerald for staying in their establishment.
“April 12, 2019: Between Maybes shooting in Subic. Location: Sagara Villas. Each actor provided one room each as standby area with personal assistants, glam team, and production staff coming in and out of their respective rooms,” Barretto explained.
Marjorie also attached a screenshot of director Mikhail Red’s Instagram post, pointing out that Julia was on the set of her upcoming film Block Z a day after the hotel’s post was shared. “April 13, 2019: BLOCK Z shoot in GAMA Studio,” Marjorie wrote.
The current uproar began when Bea posted a cryptic message on Instagram saying one “can’t make the same mistake twice.” She then liked numerous photos of Julia and Gerald supposedly taken at the birthday party of fellow actor Rayver Cruz.
Meanwhile, Marjorie said she is planning to take legal action against the Instagram user who uploaded the photos.
