Julia Barretto finally spoke up on her Instagram yesterday, clearing the air that she did not cheat on ex-boyfriend Joshua Garcia, and that she had nothing to do with Bea Alonzo and Gerald Anderson’s breakup.
Her post sparked social media frenzy, as she did not only clear her name on the issues pinned against her, but she also explicitly addressed Bea, calling her actions on social media “downright bullying.”
However, Julia’s aunt Gretchen Barretto also spoke up, as she responded to an online fan of Bea—who commented on Julia’s post, and seems to have doubts on Julia’s statement.
Gretchen comments, “TEAM BEA FOR THE WIN,” and mockingly adds “THE FACT THAT THEY HIRED A GHOST WRITER FOR THIS POST IS HILARIOUS AND MAKES HER SOUND DESPERATE TO SALVAGE WHATEVER IS LEFT.”

This ‘ghost writer’ allegation sparked more conversations online, questioning the truth behind Julia’s statement. Gretchen has previously supported Bea Alonzo through comments on Bea’s “ENOUGH” post on Instagram, and is known to be in a feud with Julia’s mother, her sister Marjorie Barretto.
Celebrities who supported Julia on her IG statement were her sisters Dani and Claudia, and ‘Magandang Buhay’ host Karla Estrada.
Who do you think is telling the truth? Is Julia’s statement really made up of her own words? Are we ever going to find out?
