The user also included the portmanteau of Michelle and Anntonia’s last names.

Michelle previously shared that her bond with the Thai beauty was built from their common life experiences.

She also talked about her closeness with Anntonia, adding that the latter is “in a very serious long-term relationship.”

“I respect them and I wish them the best. Of course, it’s really just work. It’s really just making sure that our fans are united. But the friendship is real, the friendship is genuine. So it’s hard to put labels on it other than friends, because we are just really close friends at this point,” the Pinay said on December 1.

“You know, what came out of, what started from a war has just been filled with so much love and honestly, since magkasama kami all the time, I do miss her. I miss her energy, I miss doing TikToks with her just having fun, going live. But, you know, I’m sure we will be able to do that again soon,” Michelle added.
