This came after Sonza earlier made allegations that Barretto was pregnant with Gerald Anderson's child. He claimed that the couple's alleged love child was made while the country is on lockdown.

The actress, as well as her mother Marjorie denied the rumors and called it "fake news."

Barretto explained that she filed a formal complaint because she felt disrespected. She also wanted to show people that she won't simply shrug off such allegations.

She said, "Andami ko na ring pinagdaanan, ang dami ko na ring pinalampas lalo na sa social media, binastos na ang reputation ko, ang pangalan ko. I think I just want to show people na hindi ko na pinapalampas yung mga bagay na ganito."

In a formal statement, Barretto again denied the rumors spread by Sonza. She said the false allegations have affected her and her family.

"I am pursuing this case because the statements made by Mr. Sonza are untrue and irresponsible. The widespread reposting of the news based on his post caused distress to me and my family, " she said.

"I don't want to take this matter lightly. Mr. Sonza, and all those who publish these reckless and baseless posts, must be held accountable for their actions so that they think twice before claiming things as fact," she added.

Barretto's complaint came after another actress Liza Soberano also filed charges against netizen who made a malicious comment against her. Like Barretto, Soberano also said she decided to fight back because she wanted to show that it's not acceptable to show disrespect online.
