In the past few weeks, many of us have been speculating what the real story is behind the Julia Barretto – Gerald Anderson topic. Even some stars including Angel Locsin, Gerald’s ex-girlfriend Maja Salvador, Julia’s sister Dani Barretto, and those who are much more involved like Joshua Garcia, Bea Alonzo, and even Gerald Anderson have something to say about it.
We’ve all probably been asking the same questions such as “Did Julia Barretto and Joshua Garcia break up?” or “Did Gerald Anderson Ghost Bea Alonzo?” But have we asked, “What is Julia Barretto’s side?” Well, I think we’ve got our answer, folks.
Following what looks to be a pleasant and happy photo of Julia and Bea are a series of messages from the 22-year-old actress, posted on Instagram this August 6.

“These past weeks, my faith, my patience, and my strength were put to test. I have endured many harsh words hurled against me and my family everywhere on social media. It is exhausting and painful. While some might have forgotten, I am also human,” Julia wrote in the first photo.
In the next photos, she mentioned that she was attacked for two issues which were first, cheating on her boyfriend and second, being the cause of another relationship’s break up. In the same photo, she cleared up that she has not been in a relationship with Joshua for four months already.
With regard to whether or not she has a relationship with Gerald, she mentioned that Gerald has made it clear that a third party was not the cause of Bea and his break up. Julia added: “I would like to disassociate myself from the break up of Bea and Gerald. Their issues are entirely their own.”
Despite stating that their issues are their own, Julia said she was “brought into this mess without a choice.” For that, she directs this line to Bea: “Your heartbreak should have been a private matter, but you have selfishly turned it into something of national concern.”
“Bea, you wanted to keep your hands clean by not mentioning me in your controversial post, but with a click of your finger, in your sly way, you have charged everybody to destroy me FOR YOU,” she said.
She made mentions of being bullied, saying “you are a woman of great influence and following. You could have used that power to promote strength and grace in women, but instead, you’ve used that to promote social media irresponsibility. That is downright bullying.”
“You can play victim all you want, but I refuse to be your victim,” she said. She ended her photo set with: “This is me setting myself free and getting my soul back.”
While comments have been disabled with only those she follows can comment on her post, her friends and family have clearly been showing their love and support for Julia.
