Ricci Rivero watches UAAP game with Leren Bautista, hits back at basher 


Beauty queen-turned-councilor Leren Bautista, who had previously denied any romance with Ricci Rivero, was spotted watching a UAAP game with the basketball player. 

The two fueled dating speculations after their latest sighting together at the game of University of the Philippines (UP) versus De La Salle University (DLSU) at the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City on Wednesday. 

Leren and Ricci smiled for the camera as they sat on the bleachers, as seen on the UAAP Facebook page.

Leren also appeared to have gotten acquainted with the Ricci’s family as the latter’s father Ruzcko Rivero also posted a photo together with the rumored couple and Ricci’s younger brother. 

It was in June when Leren countered rumors that she’s in a romantic relationship with Ricci. 

The denial came amid allegations that Ricci cheated on Andrea Brillantes and called it quits with the actress. The two eventually were spotted in several sightings after.

Meanwhile, a netizen seemingly threw shade at the basketball player’s attendance at the UAAP event, referencing a remark made by Andrea about Rivero allegedly not doing his laundry for a year. 

“MAGLABA KA NALANG PLS WAG KA NA MANOOD NG UP GAMES,” wrote the netizen as published.

Rivero hit back at the X user saying, “Ah wala pumapansin sayo sa bahay kaya dito ka hahanap ng papansin? Lol as bida bida”.
