Joshua Garcia cried on national television when he confessed about sending a private message to a mystery girl over her bikini shot.
On Tonight with Boy Abunda, the actor was tearful as he set the record straight by saying, “Gusto ko lang po ma-i-clear sa lahat, at ma-admit ‘yung nangyari.”
The 20-year-old actor remarked, “Art shot,” in reference to a swimsuit photo posted by Dane Rhea Sillo. Dane had posted the screenshot of their conversation and it made rounds online.
When Abunda asked about Dane in Garcia’s life, he answered, “Wala lang po siya. Wala siya sa buhay ko. Hindi siya naging parte, o kahit ano. Nag-comment ako sa kanya, nag-compliment lang naman ako sa picture, e. Wala namang nangyaring conversation.”
A tearful Garcia continued, “Siguro kasi, nakahanap ‘yung mga basher ko ng . . . Hindi kasi madali ‘yung nangyaring iyon, e. Ang daming nag-judge.”
He said that his actions had hurt Julia Barretto, causing a rift between the two. They did however manage to patch things up after the actor apologized to her.
“Okay kami ngayon. Sobrang okay,” Joshua says about Julia.
The rumors were further put to rest when both of them tweeted about it, having a fun tone about it as well:
Anong alam nila tungkol satin na hindi natin alam tungkol satin? @BarrettoJulia

He adds that there was no intention of flirting with Sillo, saying, “Nag-compliment lang naman ako sa picture, e. Wala namang nangyaring conversation.”
Sillo stated after the tell-all interview online: “Josh is for Juls.”
