‘No bad blood’: Ricci Rivero mum on ex Andrea Brillantes’ alleged involvement in KathNiel breakup 


Ricci Rivero chose to keep mum over allegations involving his ex-girlfriend Andrea Brillantes in the breakup of Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla. 

The basketball player, in  a recent ABS-CBN interview, stressed he only spoke up before to defend his family and girlfriend Leren Bautista from the criticisms on social media.

“From the very start, I just wanted peace for everyone. Ako gusto ko lang family ko masaya” Ricci was quoted as saying.

While Ricci said he has already moved on and holds no grudge against anyone, he admitted getting hurt over the bashing aimed at his loved ones, saying it was unfair for them.

“I’m very lucky to be happy as well both career [and] relationship ngayon. Wala ako anything against kahit sino. Kaya aka nagsalita before just for the sake for people to hear my side,” said Ricci.

He furthered, “Nagsasalita lang ako if bugbog na family ko and Leren, which I think they don’t deserve. Sakin wala. Kasi pumasok ako sa relationship, I know how social media plays on our lives and spotlight we got in that time. 

“Walang anything. No bad blood. Masakit lang for my family, they don’t deserve the words and judgement,” he added. 

To recall, Ricci and Andrea’s relationship drew intrigue after the former was accused of cheating on the actress with Leren being tagged as the third party. 

Ricci later confirmed dating Leren, but maintained there was no overlapping that occurred in his relationship with the two.
