Basketball player Ricci Rivero couldn’t hide his sadness after being informed that even his parents were already being criticized by the netizens because of his breakup with Andrea Brillantes.
In an interview with Boy Abunda, Ricci said that his parents, Paolo and Abigail Rivero, were confronted by several people while they were at a mall.
According to him, his parents were told, “Ang anak ninyo, cheater”, following the rumours that Andrea caught Ricci in his condominium unit with another woman.
Aside from the said incident, most of his close relatives were also receiving messages on their social media accounts from random netizens who were criticizing Ricci.
Ricci couldn’t hide his dismay because his parents were not used to facing controversies.
It can be recalled that Ricci announced his breakup with Andrea amid the rumours that he cheated on the actress.
Several photos taken during the visit of Andrea to Ricci’s home also went viral after the basketball player was spotted together with a woman wearing only a towel.
However, Ricci denied that he was having an affair with the said woman, saying that he already showed several pieces of evidence to disprove the accusations.
Some netizens were still not convinced by the explanation made by Ricci.
