Julia Barretto says she has to move forward despite feeling hurt by bashers after Bea Alonzo and Gerald Anderson broke up.
Julia Barretto chooses to move forward and heal from the pain caused by the attacks she and her family received online after getting dragged in Bea Alonzo and Gerald Anderson’s breakup.
“Like I said, hindi biro ‘yung pinagdadaanan naming lahat. Ayokong i-angkin yung mga nangyayari. Lahat kami, nasasaktan,” the Block Z star told ABS-CBN News.
“We all have our own story. We’re all dealing with our own pain. Ang pinaka masakit pa doon, nadamay ang mga pamilya namin. I’m in the process of moving forward, healing,” she added.
While Julia said that this is not the right time to ‘point fingers,’ she admitted getting affected by the issue but also acknowledged that Bea and Gerald are also hurt.
“She’s hurting, he’s hurting, but so am I. I’m really in so much pain right now. But kailangan magpakatatag. We have to get back on our feet and move forward, and heal from this,” she shared.
“Wala kaming choice. We just have to respect each other’s pain. Everyone is hurting. Hindi madali ‘yung pinagdadaanan naming tatlo.”
Julia’s ex-boyfriend Joshua Garcia was also by her side to comfort her during her ordeal. They said that they have remained friends after breaking up.
When asked about the cause of their breakup, Julia explained that it all boiled down to their own issues.
“We’re also very young, so we’re still trying to figure out ourselves, our direction in life, what we really want. I think the decision we made was a mutual decision because we knew ‘yung makakabuti sa isa’t isa,” she said.
“At the end of the day, pinili namin ang makakabuti sa isa’t isa. Ayaw na naming i-damage ang isa’t-isa, so we protected each other, because there is love.”
Joshua also clarified in a previous interview that there was no third party involved in their breakup. On the other hand, Gerald, who has been romantically linked with Julia, also clarified that the actress is not the reason why he and Bea had to part ways.
Bea has yet to address the issue after revealing with the media that she and Gerald just started not talking to each other.
