Celebrity Pediatrician Dr. Richard Mata made his reaction to the statements made by Ricci Rivero about his past relationship with Andrea Brillantes.
In an interview on the radio show Marites University, Ricci claimed that Andrea urged him several times for a reconciliation. Still, the basketball player said that he refused it.
“Hindi naman ako nagsasalita nung mga nakakasama at kausap din silang iba sa bars. Pumupunta siya ng condo ko nang madaling araw ilang beses for what? Para makipagbalikan. Nag yes ba ako? Hindi, kasi ayoko na and sinabi ko yan sa kanya paulit-ulit so I am the bad person here for not publicly telling everyone that I am single. She asked me not to let people know muna kasi baka masira ang image niya tapos nung hindi ako pumayag makipagbalikan, sisiraan na ako bigla,” he stated.
In a Facebook post, Dr. Richard said it was understandable that Andrea would try to fix her relationship with Ricci.
However, he believed that it was not proper for Ricci as a man to talk a lot about his private issues with his ex-girlfriend.
“Normal po yung babae na gustong makipagbalikan, hindi normal yung lalake na pina public ang issue. May gentleman’s code din po tayo,” the doctor said.
The comment made by the doctor received thousands of reactions from the netizens.
“Feeling nila poging pogi na cla nun pg gusto ng babae mkipagbalikan. Galing mo doc,” netizen Irene said.
“It takes a man to make other man realize that they should also be gentleman enough not to talk about it. Galing talaga ni doc,” netizen Rochelle remarked.
