Aminado ang reel- and real-life couple na sina Julia Barretto at Joshua Garcia na ilang araw rin silang hindi nagkausap matapos lumabas ang isyung pagpapadala ng young actor ng private message sa isang female Instagram user.
Ngunit nilinaw na ito ng naturang netizen at sinabing walang ipinadalang private message sa kanya ang The Good Son actor.
Ang komentong “art photo” at thumbs up emoji sa mismong post ng netizen ang ginawa ni Joshua.

Sa panayam ng dalawang Kapamilya stars sa episode ng Tonight With Boy Abunda kagabi, April 18, nabanggit ni Joshua na dahil sa isyu, “Hindi muna kami nag-usap nang matagal habang nasa Siargao siya, 'tapos nag-Bali ako.”
Dagdag ni Julia, “Ano siya, Tito Boy, it's a process.
“When I'm not ready to speak about it, I just want the person to know that I'm aware of what's happening. I'm aware of what you did.”
Sabi pa ng dalaga tungkol sa hindi nila pag-uusap, “That's my time to think, that's my time to reflect, and that's my time to pray.”
Sa naunang panayam sa kanya ng TWBA noong nakaraang linggo, inamin ni Joshua na ang isyung ito ay naging sanhi ng pag-aaway nila ni Julia, pero naayos naman kalaunan.
“Hindi lang naging madali, pero kaya naman,” sabi ng 20-year-old actor.
Halos ganito rin ang naging paglalarawan ni Julia sa ipinalabas na panayam kagabi.
Pero sa halip na magalit, sinubukan daw ni Julia na alamin din ang panig ni Joshua sa isyung ito.
Sabi ng 21-year-old actress, “With this guy, we have respect for each other, there is love and we built something beautiful.
“It wasn't something na madali kong sasabihin na, 'Tama na. I don't wanna talk. Nangyari 'to. I don't wanna talk. I don't want you anymore.' It's not like that.
“It's more, like, 'This is what you did. I know what you did. This is how I felt. Let me hear your side.'
“I made that clear. I know my worth, I know my self value, Tito Boy.
“I have learned important things—self-worth, self-value, things I can tolerate and what I cannot tolerate—and I made that clear to him.”
Dahil sa nangyari, sabi ni Julia, hanggang ngayon ay sinusubukan pa rin ni Joshua na makuhang muli ang kanyang tiwala.
“It was a rough patch, but I didn't put whatever we built in our partnership to waste.
“So, up to this day, Tito Boy, he's still trying to gain my trust and that's the truth.
“He's still trying to gain my trust but we're okay.”
“Accept, forgive, and move on. Life goes on,” pahayag ni Julia.
