MANILA — After rumors of their supposed falling out, actress Bela Padilla and vlogger Dani Barretto have “found their way back to each other.”
On Instagram on Thursday, Barretto shared a photo of her hugging Padilla — an indication that they have since mended ties, or have been on good terms all along.
“No matter what life throws at us, we always find our way back to each other,” Barretto captioned the photo.
In the comments of the post, Padilla wrote: “Love you!”
Barretto and Padilla are known to be close friends. Padilla, in fact, was among those who arranged the surprise wedding proposal of Barretto’s now-husband Xavi Panlilio.
The supposed rift between Barretto and Padilla, fans speculated, stemmed from the latter being seen with actress Bea Alonzo amid the controversy involving Barretto’s sister, Julia.
Julia became the target of accusations in relation to the breakup of Alonzo and Gerald Anderson, a fellow Star Magic artist.
Padilla would later on clarify, in a televised interview in August, that while she did happen to have dinner with Alonzo at the height of the controversy, that was in the context of work.
She belied insinuations that she was “siding” with Alonzo, and said she even reached out to Dani, Julia, as well as their mother Marjorie Barretto to clarify the situation.
