MANILA, Philippines - The team behind the ABS-CBN soap opera "Tubig at Langis" has finally issued a statement regarding the reported rift between its two stars Cristine Reyes and Vivian Velez.

This is after Vivian said in a Facebook post that she is resigning from the ABS-CBN show after being "upset and humiliated" by an actress, which she later revealed to be Cristine.

In an interview with Pep.ph, Vivian said Cristine asked her to leave their shared designated standby area "because she (Cristine) wants it only for her own."

But in a statement sent to media outfits on Tuesday, the production team of "Tubig  at Langis" said Cristine did not ask Vivian to leave their dressing room.

The two, the network added, merely had a miscommunication.

It further said, "Inaako ng production team ang responsibilidad dito."

Here's the full statement of "Tubig at Langis" over the issue:

Nang magsimula ang produksyon ng “Tubig at Langis” noong Oktubre 2015 hanggang sa umere ito noong nakaraang buwan ay naging maayos ang lahat sa set ng programa. Maayos na nagtatrabaho ang bawat isa, mula sa cast, crew, at staff, kaya naman maganda ang kinalalabasan ng bawat episode.

Noong nakaraang linggo lamang nagkaroon ng hindi pagkakaunawaan sa taping ng serye sa pagitan ng lead star nito na si Cristine Reyes at veteran actress na Vivian Velez. Narinig na ng karamihan ang panig ni Vivian ngunit may isang punto lang na may kaugnayan sa nangyari sa dressing room ang nais linawin ng programa.

Hindi totoong pinaalis ni Cristine si Vivian sa dressing room. Nagkaroon lamang ng miscommunication at inaako ng production team ang responsibilidad dito. Sa katunayan, walang problema ang staff sa work ethics ni Cristine at maayos itong nakikisama sa lahat ng katrabaho niya. Humingi na kami ng paumanhin kina Cristine at Vivian kaugnay nito.

Ikinalulungkot namin ang pangyayaring ito sa masayang pamilya na nabuo namin sa “Tubig at Langis.” Naipaliwanag na namin ang aming panig sa dalawang aktres at umaasa kaming matapos na ang isyu sa maayos at magandang paraan.

Sa kabila nito, makakaasa pa rin ang aming manonood na patuloy kaming magsisikap para magbigay ng makabuluhan at napapanahong kwento sa aming programang “Tubig at Langis.”

Cristine is yet to issue a statement regarding the issue.

Reports said Cristine wants to talk to Vivan "to clear the air," according to her older sister Ara Mina.
