Seth Fedelin speaks out after Andrea Brillantes, Ricci Rivero made relationship official

Seth Fedelin has finally spoken after his love team partner, Andrea Brillantes, made her relationship official with basketball star Ricci Rivero.

The "Saying Goodbye" leading man aired his statement through an Instagram Live on Sunday, April 10, and addressed bashers who have been targeting the actress.

According to Seth, he's speaking up not for his own benefit, but for his good friend, since he's been reading comments that are below the belt.

"Guys, 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 ganoong salita," he said.

“Ito hindi ko na natiis talaga kasi sobra na, guys. Nawawalan na tayo ng respeto. Hindi na tama 'yun."



The "Pinoy Big Brother" alum also clarified that he, Andrea, and their friends all know the real story, so there's no reason for them to throw hate on her. 

"At ako mismo, para lang din alam niyo, guys, alam ko kung ano talaga ang nangyari. Alam namin kung ano ang nangyari. Alam ng mga kaibigan namin kung ano ang nangyari."

Seth also made it clear that he's happy for Andrea's new relationship, especially that she deserves to receive that kind of sweet effort, referring to Ricci's gesture of asking her out in public.

“Wala akong galit. Ang meron ako tuwa dahil deserve ng kaibigan ko na may gumawa sa kanya ng ganoong bagay, ['yung] ipagsigawan siya sa publiko. Kaya happy ako. Wala akong anything negative na nararamdaman," he clarified.

"Dahil alam ko ang totoo guys. Kami ang nakakaalam ng totoo," he reiterated. "Kaya kayo, magsitigil na kayo."

The young actor then asked everyone to support Andrea's new relationship, just like how he supports them.

“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 ano ang 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," he said.

Seth ended his live asking their fans to support their upcoming series "Lyric and Beat." “Meron pa kaming show na ipapalabas. Suportahan po natin. Huwag tayo manira ng tao," he said.

Prior to releasing his statement, Seth posted a photo of himself drinking a cup of coffee, just hours after the news of Andrea saying "yes" to Ricci made headlines.

He simply captioned it with, "Kape tayo?"



Andrea and Ricci officially became a couple on Saturday, April 9, after the latter asked the former to be his girlfriend in front of the crowd after a UAAP game.

The "Saying Goodbye" actress then took to Twitter later that night to gush about her having a boyfriend in her first-ever UAAP experience.

"First time kong manood ng UAAP, 'di ko inaasahang magkaka-boyfriend pa ako. Grabe naman 'yun, Lord," she tweeted, attaching photos of her holding a bouquet, which seemed to be from Ricci.
