MANILA, Philippines - The ruckus raised by sultry actress Cristine Reyes and her angry tweets allegedly against singer Sarah Geronimo has gone too far.
Reyes's Twitter posts, which led the Philippines' trending topics for the week, caught not only the public's attention but divided the crowd into Team Sarah and Team Cristine.
And the "war" is still ongoing in social networks.
An online post said displeased fans shouted boo when Reyes did her special number during the taping of the ABS-CBN 2010 Christmas Special at the Araneta Coliseum.
Also, hounding rumors said a "big star" immediately confronted Reyes after her performance, in defense of Geronimo.
In a YouTube post, Geronimo's fans confirmed the booing issue.
"Nandun kami sa taping ng ABS Christmas Special at totoong na BOOO si CR. Marinig lang ang pangalan niya 'Booo' na kaagad ang maririnig mo. Hindi lang 'booo'. Nag-thumbs down din tuwing kumakanta si CR. Sana lang hindi 'yun i-edit 'pag ipalabas 'yun sa Sat. and Sun. At totoo din na umiyak si CR," said YouTube user ateGie.
In the same post, fans also quoted famous personalities who purportedly defended the Pop Princess.
"Judy Ann Santos: 'Sarah, tatandaan mo na napakaraming tao ang nagmamahal sa 'yo at napakaraming tao ang magtatanggol sa 'yo. Kahit maraming tao ang manloko sa 'yo..marami kami, hindi lang ako, hindi lang si ate Sharon, marami kami ang magiging tapat sa 'yo, 'di dahil artista ka kundi dahil tunay kang tao.'
"Kris Aquino: ''Pag inaway mo ang isang Sarah Geronimo, kaaway mo ang Buong Mundo.'
"Sharon Cuneta: ''Pag may umaway kay Sarah, kaaway na rin namin ni Juday,'" YouTube user janequitz11 said.
On the microblogging site Twitter, a furious Reyes on Sunday berated her "ASAP XV" co-star, whom she referred to as "drama princess", for a remark allegedly made behind her back.
A day after the incident, Geronimo's personal assistant, Anna Dasig, came to the singer's defense and said that Reyes misunderstood the remark.
Prior to this, Reyes admitted that she went steady with actor Rayver Cruz, who was previously linked to Geronimo.
