Part of the life of people in the showbiz industry is their personal matters being known to the public. Even the slightest details of their everyday life are being broadcasted to the majority. Most importantly, their love life.

It is no longer a secret to everyone that actress Julia Barretto has had her fair share of controversies all throughout her career. From her split with her on-screen partner, Joshua Garcia to her name being dragged on the controversial split of celebrity couple Gerald Anderson and Bea Alonzo and even to the messy family feud of the Barrettos during the funeral and wake of their late father.

Despite all this, she still continues to live her life to the fullest not with anyone’s approval but that of her own.
