Ricci Rivero took a swipe at vlogger-actress Bea Borres, who also happened to be his ex-girlfriend’s friend, on the X app.
On October 21, Bea shared a post on her X account, saying: “Lol hanggang hard launch nag mamalinis lmfao no.” The phrase “hard launch” refers to an act or a move announcing a romantic relationship with someone.
The “Kadenang Ginto” star also shared another post minutes later.
“TIME IS THE ULTIMATE TRUTH TELLER,” Bea shared. This quote recently became popular among celebrities whose partners were embroiled in cheating allegations.
No other details were mentioned in either post.
Bea, however, shared them after Ricci formally announced his relationship with beauty queen-turned-politician Leren Mae Bautista on Instagram.
Ricci seemed displeased by Bea’s post, replying to it by hinting at Bea’s supposed dirty laundry.
“Puro tweet Bea gusto mo maglabasan tayo ng labada? Tara sabihan tayo kung sino talaga kumakabit? Hingi ka lifeline para may bala ka bago ka mag reply publicly for your publicity. Sayang pakikiaalam mo kung di ka kasama sa headline,” he said.
Ricci also clapped back at another user who defended Bea.
“T*ng*n* neto pumapatol talaga sa babae,” the user said.
Ricci replied to this, referencing Bea’s second post citing the “time as the truth-teller” quote.
“Di ba dinadamay nila yung isa na walang kasalanan? Dahil ngayon nag sasalita na ako pumapatol na? Antayin natin yung time is the ultimate truth teller ng magkaalaman sino talaga isama kita sa washing machine eh,” he said.
Bea has yet to comment on Ricci’s tirades against her.
The vlogger, meanwhile, has been spotted with Andrea and fellow young stars Danica Ontengco and Criza Taa on each other’s social media channels numerous times.
Bea currently has 392,000 subscribers on YouTube, 701,000 followers on Instagram and 1.3 million followers on TikTok.
Andrea and Ricci broke up last June after more than a year of dating.
The latter was the one who announced their breakup on his X account and in an interview with Boy Abunda.
Ricci was also speculated to have cheated with Bautista, whom he was spotted with in public around the same time.
The accusations prompted the councilor of Los Baños, Laguna to issue a statement through her office’s official Facebook account.
“We would like to address the disinformation that has been circulating across social media platforms regarding Councilor Leren and her alleged romantic involvement with basketball player Ricci Rivero. We want to make it clear that these claims are entirely false and have no basis in reality,” her office posted said back then.
