The two were high school sweethearts before becoming good friends. Netizens are accusing Rainie of milking Alien’s death for attention.
On the one month anniversary of his death yesterday (Oct 16), Rainie posted an Instagram Story to share how she’s been coping.
“It doesn’t feel like it’s been a month [since Alien died],” she wrote. “I feel the same way that I did when I first heard the news; that I can’t accept it. I hope that time will pass by quickly. Letting go is the best choice.”
Fans are also grieving at how hard Rainie is facing the tragedy. In the days after his death, Rainie admitted: “There’s no way for me to describe how much I’m hurting. Alien is like family to me, and I can’t accept this piece of news.”
She’s also been forced to clarify that her way of grieving is in no way milking the situation for her own personal gain after some netizens threw shade at her for continuously posting about Alien’s death.
“I have to apologise in advance if anyone gets upset by me posting about Alien. Please don’t bother [looking at my posts] because I’ll keep doing this for some time. This is my way of remembering him and making sure that everyone doesn’t forget him. I seek your understanding,” she wrote.
