A grainy picture of the two checking out plushie toys inside what appeared to be a mall store was uploaded on X (Twitter) last Aug 17 by fan account @slayramonaaa, in which they were wearing face masks, with Rivero even wearing a baseball cap and dark aviator glasses.

Netizens claimed that Bautista was indeed the woman in the photo after she was referred to by some as “konse,” a short for “councilor,” as she is currently serving as councilor of Los Baños, Laguna.

Meanwhile, others confirmed that it was indeed Rivero and Bautista in the picture as they were seen shopping together, with one @jamisejoin even posting a side-by-side photos of the two for comparison.

Speculations about the two’s alleged romance emerged in June, after Bautista shared on her Instagram Story a photo of Rivero, who subsequently came under fire from fans for cheating on his then girlfriend, actress Andrea Brillantes.

Rivero and Brillantes eventually separated for good, which the former not being able to shake off allegations of his duplicity.

While he denied the allegations, Kapamilya actress claimed that she personally witnessed a naked woman inside Rivero’s apartment. To his own defense, the baller insisted that the woman was “not his.”

Meanwhile, the Binibining Pilipinas Globe 2019 titleholder’s camp denied any romantic involvement with Rivero in an official statement, saying that the rumors were “entirely false and have no basis in reality.”
