“These past weeks, my faith, my patience, and my strength were put to the test,” she began. “I have endured many harsh words hurled against me and my family everywhere on social media. It is exhausting and painful. While some might have forgotten, I am also human,” she started her post.

Julia added that she was attacked by netizens on two issues: she cheated on her boyfriend and the cause of another relationship’s break up.

“Let’s be clear: 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,” she said.

“From now on, anything I do in my private and love life is not considered as cheating, and is none of anyone’s business,” she added.

The Kapamilya actress also referred to Gerald’s statement on his recent interview with ABS-CBN that there was no third party involved in his break up with Bea.

“Secondly, I believe Gerald has already made it clear that a third party was not the cause of their breakup. I would like to disassociate myself from the breakup of Bea and Gerald. Their issues are entirely their own,” Julia said.

Although she was not named in Bea’s post, Julia also criticized Bea on involving her to the controversy by liking a photo of a netizen regarding Julia and Gerald’s sweet gestures in the birthday party of Rayver Cruz.

“Since I was brought into this mess without a choice, this is what I have to say. Your heartbreak should have been a private matter, but you have selfishly turned it into something of national concern. Bea, you wanted to keep your hands clean by not mentioning me in your controversial post, but with a click of your finger, in your sly way, you have charged everybody to destroy me for you,” Julia said.

“You have encouraged a culture of hate by purposely liking harmless photos, putting malice into the minds of many, which resulted in the outrage of insults against me. You are a woman of great influence and following. You could have used that power to promote strength and grace in women, but instead, you’ve used that to promote social media irresponsibility. That is downright bullying,” Julia added.

Julia continued her post saying Bea can play victim if she wants but she’ll refuse to be Bea’s victim.

“You can play the victim all you want, but I refuse to be your victim. This post is not enough to sum up everything I went through. I took the time to step back and take a look at the situation that I am in,” she said.

She ended her statement with her experiencing this kind of controversies in the showbiz industry but still loves her career.

“It is so hard to be human in this industry but I still have every intention to stay in this business that I love so much. For the longest time, I’ve always dealt with everything in silence, but this time, I’m forced to grow up. I will not be sidetracked, derailed, and be dictated by people’s judgments and opinions about me,” she said.

“This is me getting myself free and getting my soul back,” she added.
