Julia Barretto is finally standing up for herself.
The ABS-CBN actress filed a case against Jay Sonza over pregnancy rumor before the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) on Friday, September 25.
“Andami ko na ring pinagdaanan, ang dami ko na ring pinalampas lalo na sa social media, binastos na ang reputation ko, ang pangalan ko. I think I just want to show people na hindi ko na pinapalampas yung mga bagay na ganito,” she said.
Sonza, on his Facebook page, posted that Barretto is pregnant with actor Gerald Anderson’s child last September 21.
The actress went to the office of NBI accompanied by her mother Marjorie.
“I am pursuing this case because the statements made by Mr. Sonza are untrue and irresponsible. The widespread reposting of the news based on his post caused distressed to me and my family. I don’t want to take this matter lightly. Mr. Sonza, and all those who publish these reckless and baseless posts, must be held accountable for their actions so that they think twice before claiming things as fact,” she said.
