MANILA - Claudine Barretto and one of the Tulfo brothers, with whom she had a controversial spat in 2012, appear to have patched things up.

The former actress took to Instagram on Thursday to share a photo of her with journalist Raffy Tulfo, captioned: "Peace. Had a nice afternoon with you po, Sir Raffy Tulfo. God bless po @ferdietopacio"

Also seen in the photo are Barretto's lawyer, Atty. Ferdinand Topacio, and an unidentified woman.

Barretto and her now-estranged husband, actor Raymart Santiago, figured in a controversial scuffle with Raffy's brother Mon in May 2012 at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport.

In the days following the fistfight, which was caught on video, Raffy, along with siblings Ben and Erwin, threatened the Santiago couple during a live broadcast of their news program aired on TV5.

The three were suspended for a time over the on-air tirade.

The row was taken to court, with both parties filing cases.

Raffy, who is seen smiling in Barretto's photo of him on Instagram, was seen as the most vocal critic of the actress at the height of the feud.

In August 2012, Raffy ridiculed Barretto on his radio program, calling her "down and out" after her supposed failed attempt to revive her showbiz career at the time.

Barretto's apparent reconciliation with the Tulfo brother comes amid her bitter feud with Santiago, who she has accused of "physical, sexual, psychological and economic" abuse, supposedly dating back to 2002.
