Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, March 17) — Filipino netizens are enraged after showbiz personalities James Reid and Issa Pressman posted photos of each other seemingly holding hands.

Pressman, an artist under Reid's record label Careless, posted a photo where she seems to be clasping hands with the actor while taking a mirror selfie.

The two also uploaded a solo snapshot of each other taken during the Harry Styles concert on their respective Instagram accounts.

Pressman was accused of being a third party in the on- and off-screen relationship of Reid and Nadine Lustre, who broke up in 2020.

The three showbiz personalities were all from the same group of friends; Reid and Lustre defended Pressman from the bashers.

"Issa Pressman" and "Careless" are trending as of Friday, with netizens saying the truth to the rumors is coming out years later.

"Okay. Time is the ultimate truth teller. Hysss kaloka talaga! James Reid and Issa Pressman," one netizen wrote.

"so na-gaslight tayong lahat sa 'cheating issue' ni james reid with issa pressman before?" another one stated. "omg, can't believe they used nadine to save their asses. anglala."

[Translation: So were we gaslighted about the cheating issue of James Reid with Issa Pressman before?]

Another netizen also compared it to the drama of singer Justin Bieber, his ex-flame Selena Gomez, and his wife Hailey Bieber.
