Cristine Reyes started her career by becoming a contestant in the GMA-7 reality TV program, "StarStruck." After successfully transitioning from GMA to ABS-CBN, she reached stardom with her role in the film, "No Other Woman," which became the second highest grossing Filipino film of all time. Rayver Cruz, of the renowned Cruz family - a mainstay of Filipino showbiz - started his career as a child actor in 2000 with Kiss Muna and was later contracted by ABS-CBN. The two dated from 2010 until they broke up in 2012, but remained good friends afterwards.

In September of 2013, a text message started circulating in the country, directing users to a link which would supposedly feature a sex video involving the couple. Cruz immediately denied the reports, claiming that there was no sex video, and that their fame was being used to spread a virus. Reyes and Cruz spoke about the incident on the set of one of their tapings, laughing it off.

As the video became popular, a Filipino showbiz fansite posted an analysis of the video that proved it was a fake: real photos of Cristine Reyes in a swimsuit showed that she had no tattoos on her back, unlike the lady on the video circulating on the Internet.
