Fans of the AlDub love team of Alden Richards and Yaya Dub played by Maine Mendoza featured on the “kalye serye” segment of “Eat Bulaga” expressed concern over a tweet that had been posted, supposedly confirming the off-screen romance between Richards and another “Kapuso” singer-actress.
Director Richard Ilustre of “Sunday PinaSaya” (SPS) tweeted on December 6 supposedly confirming the off-screen romance between Richards and SPS co-star Julie Ann San Jose.
The issue began when a netizen asked Ilustre about the “real” status of San Jose and Richards.
@RichIlustre so Julie ba ang gf ni Alden nguan in real?
Dave and Cait @clarencedavesi1
(Is Julie Alden’s real life girlfriend?)
Ilustre answered: “Yup”.
The director later erased the tweet and said that it was just a joke.
Laine (_@JuliEllaine) then tweeted Ilustre: “Binura mo direk @RichIlustre? Sayang! Pero thank you! Na GoodVibes ako dahil dito kahit joke lang! labyu direk!
(You erased it? Bummer! But thank you. It was good vibes even if it was just a joke. I love you direk!)
He replied: _@JuliEllaine e kasi baka (cause it might..)
The screenshots of the conversations have made the rounds on social media sites, which irked AlDub fanatics.
Just think before you click, and please tell JA fantards to stop spreading the SS of your tweet. Tysm.
Agree talaga ako. Ndi naman kasi dapat I joke yung ganung bagay at dito pa sa twitter. Just saying.

(I agree. You shouldn’t be joking about those things especially on Twitter.)
Direk shld stop joking and making comments. He is setting d fire sa mga bashers.
The director replied:
@ConNellas @foodie_kitty @Nashybeyb huwag nyo na palakihin. Don’t be too emotional. Mas maganda kapag GV lang parati di ba guys?
(Don’t make a big issue out of it. It’s better if we spread GV (good vibes) all the time right, guys?)
Richards has been previously linked to San Jose prior to his phenomenal rise to stardom via AlDub. The Kapuso actor has never confirmed his relationship with San Jose or other actresses linked to him in the past, including Sam Pinto, and Louise delos Reyes.
AlDub fans have been hoping that Richards would court Mendoza off screen. The pair is set to celebrate their 21st “weeksary” (week anniversary) on Dec. 10.
