On Instagram on Monday, Barretto shared a photo of her at the beach, captioned: “We’re down to our last few days of shooting ‘Block Z’ and while it’s been quite busy and hectic again, I’m looking forward to my next beach trip.”

Barretto was referring to her upcoming zombie film with Joshua Garcia, her onscreen partner and ex-boyfriend.

The former couple, dubbed “JoshLia,” confirmed returning to being “best friends” in late June, but assured their fans that their tandem is not a casualty of their change in status in real life.

At the time, in a joint interview, they also cleared the name of Anderson amid speculation that his ties with Barretto had something to do with their decision.

Anderson was Baretto’s first-time leading man in the romance film “Between Maybes,” released last May.

Anderson similarly distanced himself from the separation of Barretto and Garcia in a separate interview in early July. He shrugged off rumors of his supposed romance with Barretto, only saying he’s “used to” intrigues that come with his job.

Alonzo had been mum on the issue until Sunday, when she shared on Instagram a cryptic message about having had “enough” — and liked several posts alleging a romance between Anderson and Barretto — sparking speculation of infidelity in her relationship.
