‘My Bebe Love’ director confirms ticket swapping at MMFF 2015
Tickets bought for the movie 'My Bebe Love' had 'Beauty and the Bestie' printed on them instead

MANILA, Philippines – My Bebe Love director Joey Javier Reyes confirmed on Friday, December 25, that tickets for his movie were being swapped with tickets for another Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) movie, Beauty and the Bestie.

As they are both part of the MMFF, the films were released on the same day.

Fans of My Bebe Love stars, Alden Richards and Maine “Yaya Dub” Mendoza, cried foul on the film’s opening day, when news of the ticket swapping spread on social media.


 


 

My Bebe Love was produced by Antonio P Tuviera Entertainment, a subsidiary of Television And Production Exponents Philippines, Inc, under GMA network. Beauty and the Bestie was produced by Star Cinema, under GMA’s rival network ABS-CBN.

Alden and Maine are also known as the tandem AlDub. Their tandem was born on the afternoon variety show Eat Bulaga, where fans eagerly anticipated the moment the couple could finally be together.

On Twitter, Joey first warned moviegoers to check their tickets before leaving the counter.



An hour later, he said that he received confirmation from the film’s producers that the ticket swapping incidents were true.







Joey de Leon, one of the hosts of Eat Bulaga, also tweeted about the incidents, warning that ticket swapping isn’t nice.


 

On Twitter, SM Cinema addressed the incidents, saying that customers can have their tickets changed if a mistake is made, and that the incidents were due to the high volume of tickets being bought.


 

Their tweets were later deleted. The only tweet left on SM Cinema’s account regarding the ticket swapping issue says that they are verifying details with SM Cinema Bacoor. However, not all the ticket swapping incidents happened in that branch.
