Julia Barretto gave her candid reaction to ongoing speculations that her ex-boyfriend Joshua Garcia is dating content creator Bella Racelis.
The “Love You to the Stars and Back” star gave her two cents on the topic during the Maritest game segment of noontime show “Tropang LOL” on Thursday, September 8.
As part of the quiz show, Julia was asked a blind item question pertaining to Joshua and Bella’s rumored relationship, and she got the answer right.
After host Matteo Guidicelli confirmed Julia’s answer to be correct, the “Block Z” actress was shown the trending photos of the “Darna: The TV Series” leading man and the YouTube vlogger, to which she initially reacted: "Oh that's nice, that's nice. Good for the both of them.”
"That's good. That's good. Masaya tayo,” she added.
When asked if she “approves” of her ex-beau’s circulating romance, Julia answered, "Approved, approved. Kung saan ang happiness doon tayo."
Even though Julia shared in an interview with Boy Abunda last May that she advised Joshua to “not get a girlfriend yet”, the actress clarified to Matteo that she’s not “sensitive” about her ex’s current dating situation.
"Hindi ako sensitive. Iko-correct ko lang ha. Eh kasi syempre dapat 'pag past ile-let go mo 'yan with grace and with gratefulness. So kapag binabalikan mo 'yan dapat walang bitterness. At saka dapat magkakaibigan lang. Kung saan siya masaya, doon tayo masaya," she explained.
Joshua, who previously dated Julia for two years, has neither confirmed nor denied the rumors surrounding him and Bella.
Meanwhile, Julia has been in a relationship with Gerald Anderson since the actor publicly confirmed their status in March 2021.
