It all started when Bea uploaded cryptic posts on her Instagram account on July 21, which fans speculate have something to do with her boyfriend, Gerald.
“'You can’t make the same mistake twice. The second time you make it, it’s not a mistake anymore; it’s a choice.' ENOUGH," Bea captioned her post. She also shared two quotes on Instagram Stories, about how "God never wastes a hurt" and about how if "people do it once, they do it again."
A series of Instagram posts uploaded by a Bea Alonzo fan account soon went viral after Bea Alonzo liked these. Featured in the photos were what looked like Gerald and Julia, who were spotted with other celebs at the birthday celebration of Rayver Cruz.
Not long after, Julia disabled comments on her Instagram account.
Today, Bea took to IG Stories to give thanks to her sponsors and some friends who sent over flowers, with messages such as "Mas masarap kung saan ka masaya." Among her senders was Julia's aunt, Gretchen Barretto, who has not been on good terms with her sister and Julia's mom, Marjorie Barretto.
"Sending you love. Love, Ate Gretchen," Gretchen wrote in her note. Bea captioned the IG story with "Thank you, Ate Gretchen."
Gretchen earlier also showed support for Bea, replying to her cryptic tweet:
"I love you, my dearest one," Gretchen responded.
Bea and Gretchen previously worked together for the 2010 ABS-CBN soap, Magkaribal.
