Bea Alonzo: Honestly, to my understanding, we did not break up. He just started not talking to me. A post shared by Tonight With Boy Abunda (@twbaofficial) on Jul 25, 2019 at 10:28pm PDT
Bea and Gerald's relationship was thrust into the spotlight on July 22 after Bea made a series of cryptic posts on Instagram implying that she had been betrayed.
At the same time, netizens noticed that Bea had liked an Instagram post showing Gerald and his Between Maybes co-star Julia Barretto, walking together outside a bar where they attended the birthday party of actor Rayver Cruz.
This led people to speculate that Gerald had cheated on Bea with Julia.
Despite the emotional turmoil, Bea continued to put on a brave face, saying in the video: "I feel like I'm a strong woman and feeling ko pinalaki ako ng ABS-CBN na professional (ABS-CBN trained me to be professional) and I always have to show up regardless of whatever's happening in my life."
When asked if she was okay, she said "I'm moving forward."
She also said that her friends have showed up for her, sending her texts and flowers – among them Julia's aunt, Gretchen. Bea said that she is getting by with their support.
"Malaking bagay na nandiyan yung mga kaibigan ko, malaking bagay. Maraming nagcacare para sa akin, actually nagugulat nga ako maraming nagpapadala ng bulaklak, maraming nagtetext. Malaking bagay yan sa akin," she said.
(It means a lot to me that my friends are there. There are a lot of people who care for me. I'm surprised actually that there are a lot of people who send flowers, a lot of people who are texting. It means a lot to me.) – Rappler.com
