They acted as a married couple in last year’s hit teledrama series “Rindu Awak 200%”Â and looked the part when rumours surfaced that the two were, in fact, seeing each other off-screen as they made frequent appearances in each other’s Instagram postings.
But Ayda Jebat and Zul Ariffin dismissed the facts and told the press and fans that despite their lovey-dovey gestures, they were just “really good friends”, as the latter was in a relationship with someone else at the time.
Fast-forward a year later, Zul’s relationship with Astro Shaw executive producer Gayatri Su-Lin Pillai was said to be on the rocks as a picture of Zul holding hands with another woman (starlet Zahirah MacWilson) surfaced online, to much controversy.
The actor then made it public that he and Gayatri are no longer romantically involved but remained good friends, making fans conjuring up speculations that Zul is indeed seeing 20-year-old Zahirah.
But what happened to his chummy ‘friendship’ with Ayda?
Well, it seems that the actor had put poor Ayda in the back burner, Â clearing off each and every picture of them on his Instagram– the only solid evidence that the two were once very involved in each other’s lives!
So what’s Ayda has to say about it?
“I don’t want to get my head wrapped around this too much. After all, it’s his Instagram and he can do what he wants with it.”
“Maybe he was just trying to delete pictures that are not important to him anymore,” she said.
Can you detect the bitterness?
However, Ayda will not plot revenge by doing the same.
“I will never delete anything I posted because every one of them has sentimental value to me.”
