Bela Padilla and Dani Barretto are known to be the best of friends. However, fans are starting to speculate a rift between them after the two unfollowed each other on Instagram.

There is no clear reason to explain why the two unfollowed each other, and they both have not spoken publicly about the issue.
It can be noted, however, that Bela had also unfollowed Dani’s sister, Julia, around the time that the controversy surrounding Bea Alonzo and Gerald Anderson’s breakup surfaced two months ago. Bela explained that it was not because she was taking sides but because she was performing an “Instagram detox.”
“I was doing Instagram detox, from following 4000 people I’m down to 2000 plus kasi I’m really trying to stay as much as I can away from social media. So my plan was to go down to zero and then follow my close friends but then I never got around to do it kasi I got busy,” Bela said.
“So I just wanna clarify that I didn’t unfollow Julia because I’m taking sides because I honestly didn’t even know the story of what’s happening to them,” she added.
It was also revealed that Dani had confronted Bela that time about having dinner with Bea—a photo of which was uploaded on Instagram Stories with the hashtag “#ParaKayB.” Bela made it clear that the dinner wasn’t intended for Bea, but rather was one where different celebrities under Dreamscape gathered.
“Galing po akong trade launch, mandatory na pumunta dito sa after-party/dinner. [I just came from a trade launch, it was mandatory to attend the after-party/dinner.] So I was actually here with Ketchup (Eusebio) and Ivana (Alawi) from ‘Sino Ang Maysala?,’ I was pleasantly surprised that Bea arrived,” she told Boy Abunda during her guesting for Tonight With Boy Abunda.
“Obviously, I didn’t know it was going to be posted with that ‘#ParaKayB’. But at the same time, it doesn’t matter if that dinner is for Bea or anything else because they are all people I’ve worked in ABS-CBN,” she continued.
It is unknown if this was what had sparked the rift between the best friends, although Bela had said at the time that she and Dani were “super okay” after she clarified the issue privately.
