Kapuso actor Jak Roberto gained sympathy from the netizens after he solo attended the GMA Gala Night 2023 on July 22.
In a Facebook post, netizens quickly noticed that Jak was not with his girlfriend Barbie Forteza, during the special event.
Some even assumed that Barbie was set to date her love team, David Licauco.
“Bigla akong naawa kay Jak,” netizen Dona said.
“Manifesting lahat ng BarDa (Barbie David) fans ay matulad sa sitwasyon ni Jak. Hindi pwede si Jak lang ang magsuffer sa pagiging delulu (delusional) niyo,” netizen Reijie commented.
“Ako lang ba? Yung na disappoint na medyo nahurt na makitang di magkasama ang JakBie sa GMA Gala?” netizen April remarked.
Fortunately, the presumption of the netizens didn’t happen as Jak, Barbie, and David chose to attend the event solo.
Despite the decision of Barbie not to date anyone, some netizens were still saddened that the actress didn’t date her boyfriend at the event.
Some of them even questioned GMA Network on how they handle their love teams.
“Anlala naman pala maghandle ngayon netong gma sa mga LOVETEAM lol. Imagine Jak Roberto walking alone sa red carpet eh mga ibang couple nga like GabLil eh sabay pati sina Paul Salas at Mikee eh tapos ngayon speculation eh sabay daw sina Barbie at David. Awit,” netizen Neve stated.
