The rumor quickly spread across all sides of the internet, with some users even creating TikTok videos about it. 

However, Heart finally addressed the issue by commenting on a TikTok post captioned: “Lovi at Heart hindi na BFF.” 

She briefly explains: “My dad is in the hospital.” 

Following the much-talked-about wedding, Lovi is finally back in the Philippines to resume taping for ABS-CBN’s “FPJ’s Batang Quiapo” wherein she plays as Mokang— actor Coco Martin’s love interest in the series.

Heart, on the other hand, had been in rough waters after the alleged credit-card controversy with her estranged glam team, Justine Louise Soriano and Jeck Aguilar. Following this, she releases a vlog centered around friendships and why it is more painful to get broken by platonic relationships than romantic ones.
