Actress Ara Mina and Cristine Reyes
MANILA, Philippines -- Actress Cristine Reyes does not want to assume that her elder sister Ara Mina was taking a swipe at her when she posted a controversial tweet last week.

Last February 17, Mina posted something in her official Twitter account which says: "Lord bless them. Ang daming masasamang tao sa mundo ngayon kahit kadugo mo. Nakakalungkot grabe!"

According to Reyes, she is not sure if Mina was actually talking about her.

"Hindi ko alam. Ayaw ko mag-assume. Ako, I am always trying my best. If the person doesn't want [to reach out], hindi mo na mapipilit," she said.

The rift between the celebrity siblings stems from an alleged dispute over the remaining balance for a house they bought for their mother.

In April last year, Mina filed charges of libel and grave coercion against Reyes before the Quezon City fiscal's office.

Following news of Mina's filing of legal charges against Reyes, the Kapamilya actress apologized on live television to her older sister. Reyes also said she hopes to renew ties with Mina.

But in subsequent interviews, Mina said she remains unmoved by the "insincere" apologies of her younger sister.

The two have yet to mend ties.
