Former actress Beth Tamayo couldn’t be any happier for her nephew Dominic Roque and his relationship with Bea Alonzo.
In an interview with Pilipino Star Ngayon, Beth candidly shared her thoughts about the rumored couple after she revealed that Bea was among those who congratulated her on her marriage to her American husband Adam Hutchinson.
“Happy ako for them,” Beth said about the couple.
While she did not reveal the real score between Dominic and Bea, Beth — who is close to her nephew — said she believes people should respect them for enjoying each other’s company in peace.
“For me, that’s the mature way to handle it,” she said. “Kumbaga, I think they’re very confident and happy sa wherever their relationship… kung saan man sila ngayon,” she stated.
“If you’re not admitting anything, you’re not also denying anything. Kung nakita kayong magkasama, eh ‘di kayo magkasama. Kung magkahiwalay ang picture ‘nyo sa Amanpulo, eh ‘di magkahiwalay picture n’yo,” she said, referring to Bea and Dominic’s photos in Amanpulo which circulated online last February.
In the same interview, Beth revealed she warned Dominic of entering into a relationship with Bea because of the possible backlash he might receive in the long run considering the popularity of the actress.
“Alam mo ‘yun … because Bea is the biggest star. Sabi ko sa kanya baka later on you will get a backlash from people saying that nakikisawsaw ka lang sa kasikatan ni Bea or whatever,” she said.
She added: “’Yung... you don’t have your own identity and just like riding sa career niya something like that. It’s hard. You might get feedback from other people na hindi maganda, deadmahin mo na lang. You know naman what to do and kung saan kayo masaya.”
Rumors about Bea and Dominic getting into a relationship first surfaced in 2019. Bea previously debunked speculations from the public, saying the two of them are just friends.
Bea was previously in a relationship with Gerald Anderson, but broke up in 2019. Gerald is now in a relationship with actress Julia Barretto.
