He relates how it all began, “So, nagtrabaho kami dati sa Grazilda, yung show sa GMA.
“We were friends, very good friends… And hahanapin ko siya, di ba, dun sa Twitter. And sabi ko, ‘How are you, Grazilda?’ Yung gano’n… ‘Kumusta ka na? God Bless.’ And then she answered…”
But “nothing else,” he insists, happened afterwards.
HOW ABOUT RECONCILING WITH HEART? According to him, love is the farthest thing from his mind, at present.
And he's not entertaining the possibility of reconciling with his ex-girlfriend.
“Siguro, we will not come back together again,” he says, but adds, “Let’s see what’s gonna happen, di ba?
“I still have a long, long way to go.
"And I already moved on, so yung expectations ko ngayon is that I’m really, really not thinking of love life right now. I really think about work and work and work…”
But during the press conference, it seemed the reporters couldn't think of other topics aside from Heart.
When pressed to reveal the real cause of their breakup, his vague answer: “stress… tsismis”
When asked to elaborate about their problems, he responds, “Wala, wala.
“Siguro yung stress, stress around us. Hindi ko alam. It’s very, very personal. So we, we… unfortunately didn’t end up together.”
Does it have anything to do with Heart’s family?
“Well, hindi ko alam po kasi, I did my best to be close to them, di ba… to be very close with family, the whole family, not just to Heart.
“But kasi, for me, it’s very important to not just, you know, to have a girlfriend, but to have plans with your girlfriend and then you don’t know the parents, yung gano’n…
“So I was really getting close to family, and I don’t know what happened… So if there is this tsismis, hindi ko alam kung totoo.”
