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.
In spite of celebrities being watched 24/7, some of them can still keep things without the public noticing anything. It can be as little as a scar that can be covered by any makeup or as big as a pregnancy that the public would feast upon.
Here are a few celebrities that have children you may not know about in the past:
Phoemela Baranda was 19 and had a busy modeling career when she got pregnant with her daughter, Kim. All her life, Kim thought that Phoemela was her older sister and she only found out about the truth when she was already 11 years old.
Sarah Lahbati and Richard Gutierrez
Last 2013, the word got around that Sarah Lahbati was pregnant with her child with Richard Gutierrez. The couple gave no confirmation as they flew to Switzerland. They first showed their son to the public in their reality show ‘It Takes Gutz to be a Gutierrez’.
Back in 2011, actor Derek Ramsay found out that he has a son named Austin. Austin is his son with estranged wife Mary Christine Jolly.
Marjorie Barretto is the mother of Dani, Julia, Claudia, and Leon. Her eldest is her child with Kier Legaspi. On the other hand, Julia, Claudia at Leon are her children with her second husband, Dennis Padilla.
Aubrey Miles admitted last 2014 that she has a son named Maurie. When asked about the reason on why she kept him as a secret, she answered “Noong time na ‘yun kailangan fresh ka. Mas sisikat ka. Siyempre sa mga endorsements mo gusto nila single ka, hindi ka mom.”
Inigo Pascual was all grown-up when he was introduced to the public by his father, Piolo Pascual. Inigo is currently following his dad’s footsteps as he’s trying his luck in the showbiz.
Last March 16, Liz Uy, a famous celebrity stylist revealed that she has a son named Xavi. In one interview by Preview, she said that “Every time I do anything, I think of Xavi first.”
Ellen Adarna and John Lloyd Cruz
There have been speculations that Ellen Adarna is currently pregnant with her child and the rumored father is the actor John Lloyd Cruz. Although there hasn’t been a confirmation just yet, last June 19, the two were spotted at Chong Hua Hospital in Cebu for an alleged prenatal check-up.
