Northport Batang Pier’s Bolick and his girlfriend, influencer Cassandra Yu, announced their marriage on May 23 in a civil ceremony in Cebu. The couple confirmed their engagement on New Year’s Day 2022, after first making their relationship public in October 2021.
In apparent retaliation, Robert’s ex-girlfriend of 8 years, volleyball player Aby Maraño, tweeted the next day, alluding to Robert and Cassandra’s wedding caption.
“When the time is right — iretri mo. GGWP,” Aby wrote. In the game Mobile Legends, “retri” refers to stealing an ability or item from another player. It is an abbreviation for retribution or vengeance.
Robert Bolick responded to Maraño’s tweet with a lengthy social media post criticizing his ex-girlfriend for acting like a “victim.”
“Una sa lahat [Aby] wag ka masyado feeling victim alam mo naman yung rason bakit ganun alam mo ginawa mo kumalat pa nga eh pero never ko linabas kasi kailangan pag-usapan yun as a couple,” Bolick wrote. He also accused Aby Maraño of having an abortion while they were dating.
“Masyado ka na diyan, tsaka sobra na rin alam mo ginawa mo buntis ka tapos nagpalaglag ka tama ba yun? Sino ba naman lalaki gusto sumama sa isang babaeng ganun? Mismo pamilya mo di alam, paano pa kaya teammate mo alam ba nila?”

He then defended his wife, claiming there was no cheating because he was looking for someone new when he met Cassandra Yu.
“Kaya nga nagpapasalamat ako na dumating asawa ko ngayon. Wala naman talaga siya kinalaman eh, di naman ng agaw never nangyare yun,” he wrote. “Decision ko talaga na makipagkita na sa iba kasi wala na tayo eh, alam mo kasalanan mo tanggapin mo.”
Robert Bolick also asked his family to support his decision to get married:”Sa aking pamilya, mahal na mahal ko kayo di niyo lang talaga alam nangyayare for sure kasalanan ko kasi di ako nagsabi, pero paano mo sabihin mga ganung bagay sa pamilya mo?”
“Pero kahit ganun pa man, mahal na mahal ko kayo at welcome kayo sa buhay namin ni cassandra at sa magiging anak namin in the future.”
