Barbie Forteza is urging the public to stop bugging her with questions about whether her boyfriend Jak Roberto is getting jealous of her on-screen partner David Licauco.

During the sidelines of the press conference for her and David's upcoming teleserye Maging Sino Ka Man, Barbie told the media that questions about Jak's supposed jealousy are already getting out of hand.

"It has always been the question kung nagseselos ba si Jak. Hindi nga! So can we stop? Parang nakakapagod nang sumagot,” she said, adding that she and her boyfriend are well aware that it's all just work.

“Naging magkarelasyon kami nang may parehas may pinangangalagaang image and reputation," she said. "So naging malinaw sa amin na pagdating sa karera, walang pakialamanan."

In any case, Barbie is thankful that Jak is all cool with the "anti-silos" memes, and that he's a supportive partner.

As for David, she thanked him for being a good friend, and that he respects boundaries outside of work.

Barbie and Jak have been in a relationship for over six years now.

David, meanwhile, had his breakout role as Barbie's love interest in the hit teleserye Maria Clara at Ibarra. Their love team BarDa has since taken the internet by storm.
