Julia Barretto revealed that she still “loves” her former boyfriend Joshua Garcia, which sparked mixed reactions on social media.
“I love Joshua, I love that guy, I will love that guy until my last breath he is very supportive and very understanding in so many things,” Julia said in an interview with ABS-CBN’s Balitang America.
The pair joined their co-actors recently in US to tape an episode of a Sunday variety show, “ASAP”.
According to reports, the interview was held in a backstage last August 3. However, on August 14, the interview clip went viral through a fan account.
Despite ending their relationship, the 22-year-old actress described Joshua as “very supportive and understanding.”
“The guy knows me really well and whatever happens in life that guy knows me really well. He knows my heart,” she added.
This drew mixed reactions on social media, with some netizens expressing support while others were dismayed on Julia’s interview.
“We don’t know kung ano talaga (ang) totoo. Sila lang ang nakakaalam,” one netizen said.
“Too late, Joshua has moved on,” another netizen said.
Last August 7, Julia broke her silence amid allegations that she was the “third party” in the recent break-up of Gerald Anderson and Bea Alonzo. She also clarified her status with Joshua.
“Josh and I had broken up four months ago. We have publicly admitted it together and we have cleared that there was no third-party involved. From now on, anything I do in my private and love life is not considered cheating, and is none of anyone’s business,” Julia wrote on her Instagram account last August 6.
Meanwhile, Joshua has been supportive to his former girlfriend and onscreen partner.
The pair will star in the upcoming zombie thriller film, “Block Z” directed by Mikhail Red.
