- Gerald Anderson admitted to the rumored romance he has with Julia Barretto
- He also opened up about how he had to walk away from a “toxic relationship” with Bea Alonzo
- The actor admitted that he was hurt with what people were talking about him
For the first time ever, Gerald Anderson admitted that Julia Barretto is his girlfriend.
The admission came during Gerald’s interview with Boy Abunda and he revealed that Julia is making him happy.
To confirm the rumored romance, Tito Boy asked Gerald if Julia is the reason behind his smile. “Yes, Tito Boy… It’s a yes. I’m very happy,” Gerald answered.
Gerald and Julia have been romantically linked since 2019 which stirred a controversy because the actor was in a relationship with Bea Alonzo. Gerald looked back at the fiasco the three of them faced at the time.
He recalled, “At that point nung pumutok, I’ve had my moments na parang, ‘Oh my God. Paano ko nalagay ‘yung sarili ko sa ganitong sitwasyon? What did I do?’ I try to be a good person. Bakit? I’m not gonna say na wala akong mali. I know. Pero kailangang umabot sa ganun? I mean, did we really have to take the social media route or path?”
“Ang pait, ang lala. Ang pinakamasakit pa is what I’ve heard even behind the cam. ‘Yung mga nakarating sa akin, ‘yung intimate moments namin bilang boyfriend-girlfriend. Parang, kailangan ba talaga umabot sa ganito?” he added.
Asked to confirm Bea’s claim that he ghosted her, Gerald refused to give a direct answer but explained his definition of the word “ghosting.”
“Ganito lang po ‘yun. Ano po ba ang definition ng ghosting? Kasi ang dating sa akin is parang nasa gitna kami ng dinner tapos nag-decide ako mag-back out and ‘di magpakita kahit kailan. ‘Yun ba ang definition? Or is it walking away from a very unhealthy, toxic — not saying na siya ‘yung toxic, but being together, we were very toxic… Hindi narerespeto ‘yung explanation na binibigay mo, hindi tinatanggap. After months and months and months and months of being on the rocks and puro away… I mean, ‘yun lang. I’m just gonna leave it at that. Bahala na po kung paanong ano, but if ‘yun ‘yung ghosting, I’m guilty of one of those two,” he clarified.
