- The young star uploaded a photo of her flat tummy with the caption “fake news” pertaining to the pregnancy tumors.
- Her friends in the industry then laughed about the situation and cheered her on.
Julia Barretto chose to shut down rumors started by former journalist Jay Sonza in the subtlest and yet, sharpest way.
In a Facebook post, Sonza claimed that Barretto is pregnant with Gerald Anderson’s baby. He said that the baby was conceived during quarantine and even congratulated the two for being fertile.
“Congratulations sa aking kapitbahay sa Congressional Village, Bahay Toro, Quezon City. Napatunayan nina Visoy (Visayan tisoy) Gerald Anderson at anak nina Dennis Padilla at Marjorie na si Julia Barreto na kapuwa hindi sila baog. After months of love lockdown and ESQ (exact sex quadrant) – may nabuo sa sinapupunan ni Julia,” he wrote.
He added that he was just waiting for more information regarding the date of the wedding.
But the young star immediately took to Instagram and posted a photo showing her flat tummy with the caption “FAKE NEWS.”
Barretto’s friends and colleagues then reacted to her clap back by cheering her on in the comment section.
This included her sisters Claudia Barretto and Dani Barretto, Moira Dela Torre, Jane de Leon, BJ Pascual, and Alex Gonzaga among others.
Netizens also stated that Sonza may have confused Barretto with another “J” who is currently rumored to be pregnant.
