Itinanggi ni James Reid ang kumalat na balitang nakita raw sila ni Julia Barretto habang nagdi-date sa isang coffee shop.
Ayon sa lumabas na report, sweet at naghalikan pa raw sila.
Dahil dito ay inulan na batikos sina James at Julia, lalo na mula sa mga tagahanga ng Viva star at ng ka-loveteam niyang si Nadine Lustre—ang JaDine fans.
Ngunit mariing pinabulaanan ni James ang balitang pagdi-date nila ni Julia nang makausap siya ng PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) at Cinema News sa studio ng ASAP 20 noong Linggo, July 5.
“Go out? No, no… they said that we are in the coffee shop? No.”
Pero hindi naman itinanggi ni James na kilala niya si Julia, ngunit wala raw siyang number nito.
“Of course I know her, we did Hopeless Romantic.
“Her number? No, I don’t have.”
BASHERS. Inamin ni James na nasaktan siya sa ilang batikos mula sa netizens.
“It’s just like, sometimes, when I’m looking at my Instagram and looking at the comments and stuff, sometimes it hurts knowing the bashers are the fans, they have the name JaDine, and sometimes I don’t know the difference.
“They said I’m quiet about it.
“I don’t have to explain myself in everything that comes out ‘coz it’s not worth my time.
“I don’t really mind, but I’m just grateful to have fans, they defend me and don’t listen easily.”
Ano ang mensahe ni James sa taong gumawa o nagpasimula ng isyu tungkol sa kanila ni Julia?
“If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.
“If I don’t have anything nice to say, then I don’t say anything.”
Sa hiwalay na panayam kay Nadine ay inamin nitong nasasaktan siya sa pamba-bash ng ilang netizens kay James.
Ayon pa sa young actress, bukas ang komunikasyon nila ni James sa ilang personal na bagay pero hindi pa naman daw nag-o-open up sa kanya ang young actor tungkol kay Julia.
Tinanong namin si James kung kumusta na sila ni Nadine ngayon.
Sagot niya, “Nadine, she’s fine as well, we didn’t let it get to us. We’re still good friends”
GOLD RECORD AWARD. Samantala, noong Linggo ay ginawaran ng Gold Record Award si James para sa kanyang album na Reid Alert.
Pahayag niya tungkol dito, “Of all the awards that I've won so far, this is my favorite. I’m most proud of this one.
“I really love this album, yung mga songs dito, every song is great.
“I feel like I just want to buy the album and give it out to everyone so they know it’s so nice.
“I love this feeling so I’ll definitely work on some music again.
“Yeah, hopefully this becomes Platinum and hopefully the next album soon.”
Malapit na ring mapanood ang tambalang JaDine sa Kapamilya network, ang On The Wings of Love.
“On The Wings of Love, it’s coming very soon.
“We’re still taping and I’m really excited, this is the first teleserye of me and Nadine.
“Some scenes were shot in San Francisco.
“We went there for nine days, we taped eight days straight, and it’s fun.
“We did some sightseeing as well.”
Ayon kay James, ibang-iba ito sa mga naunang roles na nagampanan niya.
“I think mas realistic yung character ko dito. Usually, mga characters ko, like over the top…
“It’s more mature, living alone in America... he’s an American citizen, working for his family, it’s more mature.”
