In an Instagram post on Tuesday, the actress addressed all the issues being hurled at her. Julia also slammed Bea for maliciously turning everyone against her.

Posting a photo of her young self alongside Bea, Julia wrote, "These past weeks, my faith, my patience, and my strength were put to the test. I have endured many harsh words hurled against me and my family everywhere on social media. It is exhausting and painful. While some might have forgotten, I am also human."

The actress clarified all issues against her.

“I was attacked for two issues: 1. I cheated on my boyfriend. 2. I was the cause of another relationships break up. Let’s be clear: Josh and I had broken up four months ago. We have publicly admitted it together and we have cleared that there was no third-party involved. From now on, anything I do in my private and love life is not considered cheating, and is none of anyone’s business," Julia said.

The "Between Maybes" star also distanced herself from the break up of Bea and Gerald.

"Secondly, I believe Gerald has already made it clear that a third party was not the cause of their break up. I would like to disassociate myself from the breakup of Bea and Gerald. Their issues are entirely their own."

Her last message was a fiery reaction for Bea calling her out for bullying.

Julia wrote, "However, since I was brought into this mess without a choice, this is what I have to say:"

"Your heartbreak should have been a private matter, but you have selfishly turned it into something of national concern. Bea, you wanted to keep your hands clean by not mentioning me in your controversial post, but with a click of your finger, in your sly way, you have charged everybody to destroy me FOR YOU."

“You have encouraged a culture of hate by purposely liking harmless photos, putting malice into the minds of many, which resulted in the outrage of insults against me. You are a woman of great influence and following. You could have used that power to promote strength and grace in women, but instead, you’ve used that to promote social media irresponsibility. That is downright bullying."

“You can play victim all you want, but I refuse to be your victim.”

Julia's reaction came just a day after Gerald broke his silence on the issue. He clarified Julia was not to be blamed for his break up with Bea. The actor pointed at a "big fight" and several more issues he and the actress face in their relationship.
