Ever since they were first paired together in the popular ABS-CBN teleserye Kadenang Ginto in 2018, Seth Fedelin’s onscreen partnership with Andrea Brillantes has only gotten even stronger with the birth of their love team called Sethdrea. The two have already starred in back-to-back projects starting last year with Huwag Kang Mangamba and Saying Goodbye followed by their upcoming new musical series Lyric and Beat set for release this year.

Last Saturday, April 9, Andrea’s relationship with Ricci Rivero became official when a video posted online showed the popular basketball player asking the actress if she would agree to become his girlfriend in front of a crowd. The 19-year-old actress showed that she officially accepted his surprise proposal by choosing a t-shirt with the word “YES” printed in front. Netizens had mixed reactions to the news, with fans expressing mostly concerned for Seth. Coming to the defense of his Lyric and Beat co-star, Seth posted a video on his Instagram account on the evening of April 10, Sunday, asking netizens to stop bashing Andrea. 


After reaching an audience of almost 40,000 during his live video, Seth started off by addressing his social media followers as well as celebrity friends like Kyle Echarri and Vina Morales who watched him online.

“Biglaan lang itong live ko nuod kayo. Alam niyo na bakit ako nag-live guys. Hindi ko na kailangan mag-explain. Basta manuod lang kayo. Kaya naman ako nandito, kasi gusto ko lang magsalita. Ngayon ako magsasalita kasi hindi na maganda yung mga nababasa ko. At hindi ako magsasalita para sa sarili ko. Magsasalita ako para din sa kaibigan ko,” he said at the start of the almost 10-minute video.

The 19-year-old Gold Squad member expressed his concern over all the bashing Andrea had been receiving over the weekend and requested for people to stop sending her anymore online hate. 

“Paano ko ba ito masisimulan? Kasi yung mga nababasa ko unfair, napaka-unfair dahil wala po kayong alam. Unfair po para sa kaibigan ko na makabasa at makarinig ng mga salita na wala tayong karapatan para banggitin. Kahit ako, walang karapatan na magbanggit ng mga ganung salita. At ako mismo, para lang din alam niyo guys, alam ko kung ano talaga ang nangyari. Alam namin kung anong nangyari. Alam nung mga kaibigan namin kung anong nangyari.

“Ito hindi ko na natiis talaga kasi sobra na guys. Nawawalan na tayo ng respeto. Hindi na tama yun. Hindi na deserve ng kaibigan ko na makarinig ng mga ganung salita, ganung mga pekeng balita. Hindi niya deserve. Kaya tama na guys, tama na po. Please lang tama na,” he stressed. 

For his part, Seth clarified that he was not affected negatively by Andrea and Ricci becoming a couple.

“Wala akong galit. Ang meron ako tuwa dahil deserve ng kaibigan ko na may gumawa sa kanya ng ganung bagay. Ipagsigawan siya sa publiko. Kaya happy ako. Wala akong anything negative na nararamdaman. Dahil alam ko ang totoo guys. Kami ang nakakaalam ng totoo. Kaya kayo, magsitigil na kayo. Yun lang guys, tama na. Kaya lang naman ako nandito para sabihin ito. Para tumigil na. hindi na madugtungan ng kung ano pa.

“Dahil so far, sa mga nababasa ko, sa mga naka-tag sa akin, sa mga nakikita ko sa social media ko, nagbubukas ako, hindi na tama. At saka may mga bagay na walang kuwenta. Itong live na ‘to, hindi ko buburahin itong live na ‘to guys para may makapanuod pa rin,” he said. 

Seth also hoped that people could just be supportive and positive about his love team partner’s new relationship and showed his disappointment in how some netizens were treating her with disrespect.

“Suportahan na lang natin. Huwag na tayo sumira. Yun na lang guys. Hindi na tama yun dahil ako mismo suportado ko. Suportado ko silang dalawa. Yun lang. walang dapat madehado dito. Kasi alam natin ang totoo. Kaming dalawa ang may alam kung anong totoo guys. Kayo wala kayong alam, wala kayong idea. Hindi tama lalo na’t babae. Parang wala naman tayong respeto guys sa mga magulang natin, sa mga nanay natin. Hindi ako magsasalita para sa sarili ko. Nagsasalita ako para sa kaibigan ko,” he added. 

Before ending his video, Seth reminded fans one last time to just support his new project with Andrea and to put the issue to rest.

“Meron pa kaming show na ipapalabas. Suportahan po natin. Huwag tayo manira ng tao. Dito lang ako nagsalita guys. Nagsabi na ako. Hinihintay niyo ‘to. Ito narinig niyo na mismo sa akin. Tapos na po. Ito yung nararamdaman ko ngayon sinasabi ko sa inyo. Respetuhin lang natin mga kapwa natin. Huwag tayo manira. Mahal namin kayo at excited kami mapanuod niyo ang Lyric and Beat,” he shared.
