“I was proving to them… actually, you know, all the things I could, I did.

“I did the best.”

FIRST MEETING AFTER THE BREAKUP. Nang bumalik na si Daniel sa Pilipinas, sinubukan ba nila ni Heart na muling buuin ang kanilang relasyon?

“Since I came back, the first time we saw each other was kanina sa Party Pilipinas.

“It was different, very different.

“I couldn’t even say anything, we were just looking at each other, we hugged and we said hi and that was it.”

MUTUAL DECISION. Sa isang interview kay Daniel, sinabi nitong “mutual decision” nila ni Heart ang kanilang paghihiwalay.

Kumusta na sila ngayon? Magkaibigan ba sila?

“We are good friends, you know.

“I have the hugest respect for Heart and she’s so special for me, everybody knows about that, and we’re still friends.

“I’m sure in the future, things will be better.

“We never know what’s going to happen but for now, my friendship with Heart is gonna be always the same.”

Naging very close si Heart at ang kapatid ni Daniel na si Vanessa Matsunaga. Paano tinanggap ni Vanessa ang breakup nila?

“Vanessa, she got really sad, you know, and she even cried also and well, actually my whole family, they were upset.

“Not just my family but a lot of our fans also, they were asking what’s happening and what’s the reason why we broke up.”
