Kapamilya star Angelica Panganiban made an intriguing post on her Instagram account on Thursday, October 31.
A lot of netizens immediately assumed that this message was for actor Carlo Aquino.
As she shared a photo of her family on Instagram, Angelica wrote: “Happy birthday Kuya James. Natitirang matinong Aquino na mahal na mahal ko. Mi Familia.”
Carlo recently admitted that he might have led Angelica on that there was a chance for them to become a couple again.
Speaking to Boy Abunda on his talk show about his previous relationship with Angelica, the actor said she has the right to feel hurt for what had happened between them and “it’s okay” if she does not want to work with him again.
Carlo explained that he prefers to be just friends with the actress even though he loves her because he is afraid of hurting her again emotionally.
“Siguro po. Hindi ko lang siguro kaya po na… Oo, mahal ko siya, pero parang mas gusto ko nang mas friends kami,” he told Boy.
“Natatakot lang talaga kasi ako na masaktan siya ulit,” he added.
Carlo also admitted that his relationship with Trina Candaza to whom he was romantically linked prior to the fallout with Panganiban, was part of the reason, saying that he and Trina are currently together.
Angelica’s latest post has garnered various reactions from netizens on social media.
Some of them even directly mentioned Carlo, who was the actress’s former on-screen, off-screen beau.
“Ow natitirang matinong Aquino. Si Carlo ba hindi matino?” one wrote.
Another netizen quipped: “Carlo Aquino left the group.”
To which the actress replied: “Matagal na nyang ginawa.”
Meanwhile, a few netizens have praised Angelica for her “witty lines.”
“That’s you madam. Simple lang pag-bigay ng mabigat na linyahan. Galing ng caption,” a netizen said.
“Natawa ako sa caption. Ang smart mo talaga,” another netizen added.
Angelica and Carlo’s last movie was the romantic drama, Exes Baggage.
They reportedly broke up 15 years ago.
