In an exclusive interview with MEGA Entertainment editor G3 San Diego, the actress said that Gerald did more than just ghosting and infidelity.
"Apart from, of course, the whole infidelity thing and the whole ghosting thing, I think I'm mad at him more because he gaslighted me," she said. "I think it was more of that and, until now, he's not holding himself accountable."
Bea went on, saying Gerald has not changed and was only protecting himself which, for her, was selfish.
She added that she felt scammed after the relationship ended.
“To be honest, when he ghosted me, para akong na-scam. As in like, when I posted what I posted, it felt like a weight off my shoulder. Parang I felt I was able to get my power back. Parang naisip ko, in my head, ‘Let me show you who I really am,’” she said.
She also shared about her brief encounter with Gerald during the 2019 ABS-CBN Ball. Bea did not have a chance to confront the actor, but she would have done something if she did.
"I would've slapped him. I would have," she said.
“Nakita ko yung likod nya nung ball pero na-traffic kami, hindi ko na siya nakita and medyo nakainom pa naman ako ‘nun," she added.
Bea added that her long-time love team partner and close friend, John Lloyd Cruz, gave her an "I told you so moment" after learning about their break-up.
"[H]e never really wanted that guy for me. Well, he never wanted anybody for me. He told me that I can survive it, and he kept telling me that I don’t love him," she recalled.
When asked what she learned from the relationship, Bea answered: “Siguro yung baon ko talaga is not to let myself be cheated on that way ever again, by anybody. I will never subject myself anymore to that type of relationship."
Back in 2019, when Bea and Gerald's relationship had ended, the former has been posting cryptic messages on social media, which netizens assumed were targeted at the latter.
When the press asked Bea about their status, she said: "He just started not talking to me."
Netizens had also surmised that Gerald cheated on Bea with his Between Maybes co-star Julia Barretto. The two had initially denied being involved with each other. However, last March 2021, they made their relationship public.
In addition to the hot details, Bea also made the revelation that she is dating actor Dominic Roque, though not exclusively.
“No. Wala pa kami," she said. "As much as I don’t want to be a prisoner of my past, meron din akong parang, nahihiya ako sa mga tao na 'I’m 33, I am dating.'"
