'Found the right one,' 'walang inagaw': Ricci Rivero tells Leren Bautista over ex Andrea Brillantes cheating issue
MANILA, Philippines — Basketball player Ricci Rivero seemed to have confirmed rumors about his alleged relationship with beauty queen and politician Leren Mae Bautista.
In an Instagram post yesterday, Rivero posted photos of Leren in a car and called her “queen.”
“To the girl who I see as a real QUEEN. With all the wrongs hounding me, I’m blessed to have found the right one. Allow me to shield you from things you don’t deserve,” he said.
He stressed that he and Leren will not hide because there is nothing shameful about their situation.

“Hindi tayo magtatago dahil walang dapat ikahiya. Walang nang agaw at walang inagaw. Walang bibitaw dahil masaya tayong magka hawak kamay.”
He also praised his rumored girlfriend for her commitment to public service as a Los Baños, Laguna councilor.
“I love seeing how you genuinely continue to help and care for people (every day) despite others trying to ruin your reputation. Rest assured I will be with you in inspiring people to always be better. Thank you for being so selfless and simple.”
He also seemingly took a swipe against bashers or those sympathetic to ex-girlfriend Andrea Brillantes, who allegedly caught him cheating with another girl, which many alleged to be Leren, but this has not been confirmed from cryptic images and videos that went viral on social media.

Internet users commented their happiness for the rumored couple.
“So happy for both of you. Kilig naman!” said one.
