Former Bb. Pilipinas-International titlist Krista Kleiner did not retract, as she accidentally revealed in her guest appearance in Good Times with Mo, that her previous relationship with singer Jay-R got “a little bit abusive.” The beauty queen/actress/singer explained to PEP.ph, “It wasn’t my intention to really talk about it on that show. I was just there to give advice to someone else and in giving advice, of course, I had to explain personal things that I went through.”

Krista Kleiner was hesitant to talk any further about her accidental revelation that her previous relationship with RnB singer Jay-R ended because of physical and verbal abuse.

As soon as PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) came up to Krista last night, March 13, at the Mango Spring/Summer Catwalk fashion event, the Bb. Pilipinas-International 2010 beauty titlist immediately said that she does not want to disclose anything more regarding the matter.

She initially stated, “Whatever I said on the interview or in the podcast, that’s it. I don’t know... see any reason to elaborate.

“And I didn’t lie. There’s no … I can’t deny what I said.”

It can be recalled that on Krista’s February 25 guest appearance in Good Times With Mo, the actress/beauty queen unintentionally disclosed that her three-year relationship with Jay-R “was getting a little bit abusive.”

In the said episode, even Mo Twister was surprised about Krista’s statement and so he asked further, “Oh, physical huh?”

To which Krista replied, “Yeah… between that and verbal.”

At last night’s event, however, the 23-year-old Filipina-American pointed out, “It wasn’t my intention to really talk about it on that show.

“I was just there to give advice to someone else and in giving advice, of course, I had to explain personal things that I went through.”

Krista told PEP that she did not exactly mention “any name” during the taped episode.

“It just so happened that Mo was able to… Mo put a name to it.”

Expressing her discomfort about discussing anything more, Krista said, “In all honesty, I don’t want to talk about it na because it happened a year ago and I’m totally happy now.

“I just want to focus on where I am today. So, ayaw ko na pag-usapan.”



REGRET. Looking svelte and regal in a black and silver gown, Krista relayed during the interview that she “felt it was about to come out at some point” because she did not permit interviews after calling it quits with Jay-R in March last year.

“I didn’t take any interviews after the breakup until now.
