MANILA, Dec 15 – Two days after sultry actress Cristine Reyes vented her anger against Popstar Princess Sarah Geronimo on the microblogging site Twitter, a number of people who are implicated to the rift of the two finally spoke up.

“ASAP XV” mainstay and dancer Gab Valenciano happened to be rehearsing with John Prats and Rayver Cruz on the day when Geronimo allegedly made the statements which raged Reyes. According to him, he heard Geronimo mentioning “sexy actress.”

“I think I heard something like that but I’m sure she was not making tukoy,” he said.

He, however, clarified that the Popstar Princess did not mean to insinuate something.

“I was on stage with Rayver and John. Actually parang hindi naman siya parinig eh. Parang it was more, siyempre close sila ni John, so I think was more pa-joke talaga. It was mostly about how guwapo John Prats was,” Valenciano stated.

Meanwhile, Viva Artists Agency, which manages both Geronimo and Reyes, also released a statement through Veronique del Rosario-Corpuz regarding the tiff.

“In Viva, we are praying and hoping na magkaayos since it’s Christmas season. But in time, kung kailan ready na ang both parties,” the statement said.

On Sunday, an apparently irked Reyes voiced out her anger against Geronimo. Although she did not actually name the latter, she hinted that the object of her fury is a “drama princess” in the entertainment industry with a “goody image.”

Suspicions that she was referring to the Box Office Queen were only confirmed after the Geronimo’s personal assistant, Anna Dasig, spoke up in defense of the actress-singer.

Also on Twitter, Dasig said Reyes shouldn’t have given meaning to Geronimo’s statement about how a man is always being chased by a sexy woman if he is a good dancer.

Based on the sultry actress’s tweets, it was that remark that caught her ire.

Showbiz insiders said Geronimo made the remark during the dress rehearsals for the musical variety show “ASAP XV.”

Reyes, who was once voted as FHM’s sexiest woman, went steady with Cruz.

Cruz was linked to Geronimo, lead star of “A Very Special Love” and “You Changed My Life,” but they both denied any romantic relationship. (MNS)
