Gerald and Julia have been romantically linked since 2019. At that time, it stirred such a controversy because the actor was in a relationship with Bea Alonzo. The rumored couple took a lot of bashing online and Gerald was dubbed as a womanizer. The Kapamilya actor looked back at the fiasco the three of them faced at time.

He recalled, "At that point nung pumutok, I’ve had my moments na parang, ‘Oh my God. Paano ko nalagay ‘yung sarili ko sa ganitong sitwasyon? What did I do?’ I try to be a good person. Bakit? I’m not gonna say na wala akong mali. I know. Pero kailangang umabot sa ganun? I mean, did we really have to take the social media route or path?"

"Ang pait, ang lala. Ang pinakamasakit pa is what I’ve heard even behind the cam. ‘Yung mga nakarating sa akin, ‘yung intimate moments namin bilang boyfriend-girlfriend. Parang, kailangan ba talaga umabot sa ganito?” he added.

Asked to confirm Bea's claim that he ghosted her, Gerald refused to give a direct answer but explained his definition of the word "ghosting." He added that he didn’t want to smear anyone’s reputation but opened about the toxic relationship he had with Bea.

“Tito Boy, I can remember that moment like kahapon lang siya nangyari. But I can’t... I don’t have the guts to put someone in a bad light because gusto ko linisin ‘yung image ko or ‘yung side ko."

"Ganito lang po ‘yun. Ano po ba ang definition ng ghosting? Kasi ang dating sa akin is parang nasa gitna kami ng dinner tapos nag-decide ako mag-back out and ‘di magpakita kahit kailan.

‘Yun ba ang definition? Or is it walking away from a very unhealthy, toxic — not saying na siya ‘yung toxic, but being together, we were very toxic... Hindi narerespeto ‘yung explanation na binibigay mo, hindi tinatanggap.

After months and months and months and months of being on the rocks and puro away... I mean, ‘yun lang. I’m just gonna leave it at that. Bahala na po kung paanong ano, but if ‘yun ‘yung ghosting, I’m guilty of one of those two," he clarified.
