“Take care @aldenrichards02 We are praying for your fast recovery…take it easy.”

However, while others were hoping Alden will feel better soon, a netizen commented that the real reason why Alden had suddenly left the show was that he cannot stand Maine Mendoza’s open letter to their fans when she revealed that there is no romance between her and Alden.
“Sus tension lang yun pr d maabutan ang SB coz he knows the awkward situation.let’s see what he’ll do tom.
“Nagpa alam..dahil sa kahihiyan na bistado na siya…sa open letter ni Maine Hindi nakayanan….”
