Last Saturday, July 30, it was revealed that teen actor Jerome Ponce is Elisse's first ex-boyfriend. The former Be Careful With My Heart star joined the Kapamilya reality-competition as a house guest.

During her confession, Eliise admits that she couldn't forget about their past since the two often see each other at work. She narrated, 'Nagkikita kami pag sa work po pero sa totoo po pag nakikita ko siya, naaalaala ko yung dati. 'Kahit itry ko tingnan siya as ngayon, hindi ko po magawa, Kuya.'

PBB host Toni Gonzaga asked Jerome for his side and he answered, "Never ko naman siyang kinahiya."

Meanwhile, Robi asked him what he would like to say to Elisse now that he will be able to meet her inside the PBB house. Jerome said, "Siyempre sorry, sorry at it's never too late."

Upon his arrival, Kuya asked Jerome how they first met and developed a relationship. The Star Magic talent recalled, "Ayun nga po, first impression ko sa kanya nun, akala ko mataray, matapobre. Tapos siya naman, akala naman daw niya sa akin is mayabang, playboy. Hanggang sa dumating na yung isang ka-cast namin, nagyaya lumabas after ng taping po. Kumain lang kami, kumain tapos nagkuwentuhan about sa buhay-buhay.

"Dun gumaan kami sa isa't isa, hindi na naiwasan na na-develop kami sa isa't isa. That time, aminado naman po talaga ako na bago lang ako sa industriya at kailangan ko pong pangalagaan yung binibigay sa aking chance ng industriya."

However, Jerome was asked by his talent management not to enter a relationship since he was just starting his career in the entertainment industry.

"Sinabi lang sa akin na bawal daw ako mag-girlfriend. Sumusunod naman po, pero siyempre kahit papano gusto ko rin naman sundin yung kaligayahan ko. Pinagpatuloy ko lang po yung kay Elisse at tinago ko po na magiging safe lang kahit na minsan alam ko na pangit sa isang babae na itago at hindi ipakilala.

"Pero mas masakit rin po naman sa akin bilang lalaki na ultimo yung pamilya ko hindi pa niya nakikilala."

Jerome went against the instructions of management and pursued a relationship with Elisse.

Elisse's mom Barbie Joson requested for him to admit their relationship, which he later addressed.

Jerome recalled, "Hanggang sa dumating yung point na nalaman ng mama niya. Gusto naman nung nanay niya na patunayan ko daw na ipagmamalaki ko yung anak niya kasi gusto daw niya para sa anak niya, e, hindi yung ikinakahiya. Ginawan ko po ng paraan yun, pinost ko po sa social media na mahal na mahal ko po si Elisse."

However, bashers attacked Elisse on social media after Jerome admitted their relationship. As a result, Elisse's mother requested for them to end their relationship to protect her daughter from the bashers.

"Natuwa naman yung nanay niya kaso dumating na naman po sa point na sobrang nambabash po yung mga fans, na-offend na yung mama niya. Tapos sabi parang mali na raw to, tapos pinaghiwalay na kami ng tuluyan, ganun. Kaya hindi ko rin po alam yung gagawin ko basta maghihintay lang po ako ng tamang panahon."

Jerome aditted that he still loves Elisse after everything that has happened. He told Kuya, "Mahal ko pa rin yung tao na yun siyempre. Gusto kong sabihin sa kanya na ito lang ako na, willing kong ibigay ang buhay ko para sa kanya, kung ano man ako. Kahit kakailanganin pa ng isang buhay."

The 21-year-old actor however noted that he just wants a reaction from Elisse. He said, "Masaya po. Masaya na naka-move on siya, masaya na nalaman na nandito pa rin ako, masaya man siya na kung ano man po ang ginagawa niya ngayon. Okay na po ako dun, e."

Currently, Elisse is being linked to Hashtags member and fellow housemate McCoy de Leon.
