ICYMI, basketball player Ricci Rivero publicly asked actress Andrea Brillantes to be his girlfriend after his game last Saturday, April 9. The 19-year-old star immediately said yes, later on posting a photo of herself wearing the “yes” t-shirt while holding a bouquet of sunflowers.
While many fans congratulated the new couple, numerous netizens were worried about how Andrea's on-screen partner Seth Fedelin would receive the news. The morning after Ricci’s proposal, however, Seth posted a seemingly unbothered photo of him on Instagram.
In the now-viral post, Seth was all smiles as he held a cup of coffee while lounging by a balcony. Captioned “Kape tayo? <3”, the *chill* post sparked a lot of mixed comments from fellow showbiz stars and netizens alike.
For instance, Seth’s Kadenang Ginto co-star and close friend Kyle Echarri commented “Tara kalian” and host Darla Sauler replied “Tara! Saan? Pag-usapan natin ang buhay buhay!”
Although many of Seth’s fans also replied with reassuring and comforting messages, some still joked that it wasn't ~coffee~ he should be drinking to ease the heartbreak. A lot of fans also commended him for staying “unproblematic” and “unbothered” amidst the issue.
That evening, Seth held an Instagram live to further clarify that he fully supports Andrea and Ricci’s new relationship.
“Ako po, wala po akong galit. Ang mayroon po ako tuwa dahil deserve ng kaibigan ko na may gumawa sa kanya ng ganung bagay, ipagsigawan siya sa publiko. Kaya happy po ako,” he said.
“Suportahan na lang po natin, huwag na tayong sumira. Hindi po tama 'yun. Dahil ako po mismo, suportado ko silang dalawa. Walang dapat madehado dito guys kasi alam namin yung totoo,” he added, urging internet users to stop bashing Andrea online.
FYI, Seth and Andrea are set to topbill romantic musical show Lyric and Beat this 2022. Last December, the love team also starred in drama series Saying Goodbye after initially getting paired in Kadenang Ginto.
