Earlier this week, Nadine Lustre went on Twitter to defend her best friend, Mika Tan, against the bashing Mika received online. Mika and Nadine's boyfriend, James Reid, were snapped in a friendly embrace during a party over the weekend. Nadine was also present at the party.

WTF are you all going on about?
Talking shxt about my best friend?
Judge me all you want, but talk shxt about my friends.. Ill shut you all down.— Nadine Lustre (@hellobangsie) June 19, 2017
The Kapamilya star recently spoke to PEP.ph about the issue that dragged down her BFF: "Siyempre I feel bad, kasi hindi naman totoo. Mga assumptions lang na gawa-gawang kuwento, yung iba pinaniniwalaan. Siyempre hindi din naman fair sa kaibigan ko," she said.
While James just laughed about the rumors, Nadine couldn’t help but get emotional since her friend was involved: "Wala, tinawanan lang niya. Hindi naman kasi siya interesado sa mga ganyan. 'Eh, alam naman natin ang totoo, bakit natin papatulan?' Eh, ako, siyempre hindi, eh, kaibigan ko din siyempre yung bina-bash nila, so parang hindi yun tama."
Nadine opted not to go deeper as to why she lashed out on social media, but did stress that it came to the point she could no longer stay silent: "Minsan, kailangan lang magsabi, mag-remind sa kanila na hindi tama, eh, hindi puwede na hahayaan mo lang. Paulit-ulit na, so parang hindi na fair sa mga taong nadadamay."
