Kathryn Bernardo appears to have unfollowed Andrea Brillantes on Instagram, amid rumors that Kathryn and her longtime boyfriend, Daniel Padilla, have already broken up, and Daniel's purported link to Andrea.
Eagle-eyed netizens on Nov. 17 noticed that Kathryn’s “following” count dropped, and searching Andrea’s name showed no results. Andrea’s “following” list, meanwhile, still has Kathryn’s account.
Some social media users commented on Andrea’s posts, asking about the unfollowing incident, though didn’t mention anything specific.
“Bakit ka inunfollow so totoo ang chismis?” one user said.
“Totoo ba? Ang chika? Na ikaw ang dahilan!?” another user said.
Andrea didn’t respond to the users.
Talent manager Ogie Diaz, in his vlog, cited rumors that Kathryn and Daniel, or KathNiel to fans, were no more. He clarified there was no confirmation about what he heard from his supposed source and hoped it wasn’t true.
Citing his source again, Ogie also mentioned the name of Andrea, who’s supposedly secretly meeting with Daniel.
KathNiel fans took Ogie to task, saying he peddles “fake news.”
On the heels of the rumors, Kathryn and Daniel attended the event of luxury Swiss watch brand Omega, of which they’re brand ambassadors. The power couple posed for photos, with Kathryn reposting them on her Instagram Story.
Videos also showed KathNiel hitting the dance floor.
Kathryn has yet to react to the netizens' observation.
Kathryn and Daniel debuted as a love team in 2011 for the teleserye Growing Up and have since starred in more shows and movies. They confirmed their relationship in 2018.
KathNiel also headlined the remake of the 2015 hit teleserye Pangako Sa ‘Yo, which also included Andrea in a supporting role.
