MANILA -- Teen star Julia Barretto is taking a break abroad amid the ongoing controversy involving her father Dennis Padilla.
After the actress' camp filed a petition to drop her father's real surname, Baldivia, the young actress, along with her family, flew to London, which is among her dream destinations.
In her official Instagram account, Barretto posted a photo of her in the British capital with the caption: "Off the bucket list (check, check)."
Aside from the London landmark, the Big Ben, Barretto also shared a photo of her mother, Marjorie Barretto, at the Prince Edward Theatre to watch the musical "Miss Saigon."
"A dream come true for Mommy," Barretto wrote in the caption.
Barretto went to London after finishing her launching series "Mirabella" with Enrique Gil.
